This is a lovely place to stay and an excellent base from which to explore the beautiful surrounding area. The studio is as pretty as it looks in the pictures, small but set up with everything you need. Liz is a terrific host, providing perfect directions and suggestions and even fresh croissants and pain au chocolat in the morning! There are many picturesque places to visit nearby, including Henley-on-Thames, which is about an hour's easy walk away. I recommend having a car so you can drive to some of the many quaint chocolate-box-pretty villages nearby (Lunch at the French Horn in Sonning is a beautiful indulgent treat).

What a wonderful place to stay! Liz and Malcolm were most welcoming and so attentive. We were so very grateful for the stock of breakfast supplies and for the hot croissants that Liz brought to our door each morning. The surrounding area is beautiful and the walk to Henley along the Thames path was simply stunning. We would thoroughly recommend this studio for all that it offers, the serene setting in their gorgeous garden and for the fabulous hosts. Thank you Liz and Malcolm.

Very comfortable and beautifully presented cottage. Loved the area with its many walks along the Thames. The fridge was well stocked with beer, wine, juice, fresh fruit salad and yoghurt to have with some delicious muesli for our breakfast. Liz and Malcolm are friendly and helpful. We will be back.

Wonderfully accommodating hosts and a picturesque and relaxing setting. The garden is perfect; wished I had more time to enjoy it. I enjoyed a stroll along the Thames, just minutes from my door. Also very convenient to the train and the local pub. Of course the croissants should get a mention but so to should the technical support I received :)

Charming hosts, cozy and very peaceful setting for two. Studio all as described. Plus great location in Shiplake - with local pub a few minutes walk away - Henley and great walks on the Thames Path. Would happily recommend.

We both have lived in the lovely village of Shiplake just outside Henley on Thames for 25 years and are now retired from professional jobs. Keen golfers and have enjoyed refurbishing our old coach house within the last year. Having lived in Kenya for a number of years we tried to create 'The Studio' in to something with an East African feel. Pretty hands on grandparents to our four grandchildren who live in London. Usually travel in the winter as we enjoy our boat on the Thames in the summer months.
