Superb stay ! We used the house as a base for our sons wedding on the Thames at Bray. Ideal location and terrific facilities for all the entertaining we hosted for family and friends. Highly recommended!

Lovely house in a fab location. Masses of room for everybody. Lovely hot tub. Great local dog walks and shops.

Jeremy , July 2022

We had a really wonderful weekend at The Orchard as a large group of friends. The house exceeded expectations; it was well equipped, clean and much bigger than expected. Almost every room had an en suite bathroom and everything worked properly – ovens, heating, hot tub. A big thank you! (and to lovely Suzanne).

Alice P, October 2021

What a wonderful venue to spend your 40th! The property is very welcoming and surroundings are idyllic. All
the bedrooms have picturesque views over the local green/the countryside, and the decor is finished to an extremely high spec. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to cook, or the local takeaways that deliver are not to be missed!

Lucy B, September 2021

Wanted to give you a note to say that the family had a very enjoyable and memorable return visit to the Orchard.
It was a family get together of 3 generations to celebrate my 60th. The Orchard provided the ideal base for us, and with 3 children under 4 in the group the garden and Hot Tub were extremely well used! We were even able to use the BBQ on the Sunday evening which was super.
You've got the balance and ambiance spot on in our opinion .
A word also for the housekeeper too - she did a great job, was very helpful and friendly.
Many thank again and we could well return again.

Paul C, August 2018

We had the most wonderful weekend at The Orchard, thank you so much. The house is absolutely gorgeous, in the most stunning area. It was absolutely perfect, it couldn't have been any better. My family and I will definitely be booking again to create even more amazing memories. Thank you very much for providing us with the perfect setting.

Steph C, May 2018

Our family gathering at The Orchard was a great success. The accommodation worked very well for the 13 of us. Suzanne, our housekeeper, was excellent. In general, the most frequent comment was, "What a great place for Christmas!" Unfortunately for us, I note you are already booked for the week. Maybe another year?

Eric H, May 2018

Beautiful, well-managed property. Very responsive and accommodating host

Karen S, April 2018

Our thanks to you all for accommodating our family stay, once again, at The Orchard.
This time the occasion was a family wedding. Each day was delightful & The Orchard was again just the perfect location for us all to gather from numerous different countries & enjoy a happy occasion together.
We all hope, and are working towards, gathering there again in the not too distant future.

Vivien E, January 2018, January 2018

The house is magnificent. It has been decorated and furnished to a very high and tasteful standard. Even with all bedrooms occupied the house is very tranquil and well sound-proofed. The size and design of the property means you can have social gatherings and break off into quiet spaces on one of the many reception rooms if required. The kitchen and casual dining area is to die for and has a multitude of appliances and facilities available. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all exquisitely decorated, the beds are very comfortable! The large terrace and well kept rear garden provides views of the sprawling Berkshire countryside. Relaxing in the garden's hot tub is a must! Check-in and check-out were uncomplicated, with the housekeeper waiting to provide an overview of the property. You will wish this was your own house!

Aaron S, September 2017

We all (my son and family and my daughter and family) loved our stay at The Orchard. Again, thank you so much for facilitating a perfect and memorable weekend

Elizabeth S, August 2017

"We had a really lovely weekend, the house is amazing Thank you"

Debbie P, June 2017

We had a phenomenal stay at this beautiful house. The photos we saw of the place were great but the home looked even better in person. Our host did a good job and was gracious with us checking out a little later. The facilities were perfect and met all our needs and more. All 8 guests loved the house and didn't want to leave in the end!
We found no faults and had no problems throughout our 4 day stay and highly recommend this place to any large groups looking for a luxurious home in a wonderful location.

John B, June 2017

"The Orchard was a perfect spot for family to congregate and use as a base for operations. The rooms were much larger than I expected, so we really enjoyed lots of space and it was very relaxing. You have set the bar very high "
"Many thanks to you, Suzanne and your Orchard team. You all made it so simple and pleasant. I hope that you enjoy many years of 'easy' bookings"

Carole N, February 2017

We absolutely loved our stay at the Orchard. Everyone thought it was a fantastic house and location to spend Christmas. Do you know the make of the mattress on the bed on the first floor master bedroom? It was so comfortable and I forgot to look before we left!!
Who is the artist that painted the cow in the kitchen (loved it)?
Thanks very much

Mike J, December 2016

We have now returned home after a wonderful week and our daughter's wedding last Friday. We just wanted to let you know that the house was perfect and everyone who stayed thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Richard C, September 2016

What can I say!!! We all think you have a beautiful house. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was so nice to come back after a day of WALKING and relax together.

Larry & Ruth B, August 2016

The Orchard worked extremely well for all the relatives that had travelled a fair distance. We all enjoyed our stay very much. The house has an exceptional luxurious finish.

Jean S, August 2016

Just wanted to say WOW, what an amazing property. We had a wonderful stay at The Orchard. Thank you.

Sas, June 2016

I catered for a private party at the week end at The Orchard and I felt that I had to write to say what a pleasure it was to be in your property. I cater throughout the Cotswolds & home counties and I have to say that The Orchard is by far & away one of the best that I have been to. For more information, please follow this link :

Paul B, February 2016

Just a short note to thank you and the team for arranging our stay at The Orchard. It was a lovely surprise to see the tree & festive decorations not to mention the mince pies!

The Orchard worked perfectly for our extended family group covering 4 generations & even more countries.
We had a truly international Christmas, entered a team in the Boxing Day games which was great fun & our runners, walkers & cyclist enjoyed exploring the area.
Food & drink at The Jolly Farmer was appreciated by all & it's a pub we'll be back to when in the area again.
Meanwhile for us it's the start of the Hogmanay shenanigans so I'll finish by wishing you & the team every best wish for 2016.

Vivien E, December 2015

Myself and my family stayed at The Orchard for 8 weeks last October due to a refurbishment project at our house. I wanted to let you know what a wonderful time was had by all. Due to the longevity of the stay, we grew to love the house and the surroundings, the locals are very friendly too, and made us feel very welcome. It felt like a home from home yet finished to such a high standard which can be seen by the exquisite decor throughout the whole property. I would thoroughly recommend this property if you're looking for a week end luxury retreat, family gathering, a special occaison or even for a corporate venue, the property suits all occasions! I would also highly recommend the neighbouring pub with its great gourmet food and very friendly atomsphere.

Jitendra P, December 2015

"The Perfect 50th Celebration" I booked the house to celebrate my 50th with 12 friends - 6 couples. We were greeted on arrival by the charming housekeeper who was so sweet and informative. I was speechless, the house definitely has the wow factor, it is absolutelly stunning, decorated to perfection and spotless. Everything is top quality from furnishings to big soft fluffly bath towels. We had the best time ever. Although it was cold it didn't stop us using the fab hot tub. The village is idilic and lunch at The Chequers was fabulous. I had the best birthday ever in a house that dreams are made of. We will be back!

"Our Stay at The Orchard was exceptional, myself and my family spent a week over Christmas 2014 here - what a perfect place for a wonderful family Christmas, loved by all, especially the dogs! From first contact to departure, the standard and service was above and beyond our expectations. We were spoilt for choice with the bedrooms, out of the six exceptionally decorated bedrooms, we chose to stay on the top floor in one of the luxurious suites offering breath-taking views of Cliveden House. The beautiful decor throughout the entire house did not go unnoticed, it was the perfect location, the views overlooking the Berkshire countryside were splendid, watching the horses having their daily exercise was a perfect start to the day. We will definitely return again! Congratulations for creating something quite special. A fabulous time was had by all, what fond xmas memories we have"
