This home provides the visitor with all the luxury and comforts of home and occasionally the odd word in Welsh!

Visitors are kindly asked to vacate the home during the day unless agreed in advance. Kooikie the family dog is as welcoming as the hosts and their family, although he likes to bark his greeting!

The Tandem provides inexpensive meals whilst looking over towards the river. Al Kaham Indian restaurant in the village as well as a Chinese take away.

A nice country walk away is The Kings Arms in Stanford-on-Thames, which overlooks the Canal and lock. Enjoy watching the narrow boats as they tackle the lock!

    “Fantastic, recommend without hesitation!”

    The room is of a very high standard, especially the new en-suite, and the dining/breakfast room is very comfortable with a wide range of breakfast delights on offer. What makes this accommodation stand apart from the average though, is the warm welcome and attention given by the hosts - this makes it like a home away from home. Lliwen and Iain are also invaluable with their local knowledge and gave great advice regarding other places to visit!
