Hi ! We live in Warfield, Berkshire and are a family with two kids under ten and love travelling all over the globe! We manage and run several holiday homes so you can be confident all our places are great to stay in, clean, bright, modern and welcoming, with great facilities. We even leave a welcome parcel such as tea, coffee, orange juice, bread, milk sugar as well as shower gel, toothpaste and shampoo just in case you forget any 'essentials'! We have some lovely reviews from recent guests so feel free to check them out and get in touch with either myself, Tessa or my husband Charles to ask any questions. We are always easy to contact when you are in our places to ask any questions or if you need any help with anything. Hope to see you soon!
Tessa purchased this House in 1999
Why Tessa chose Reading City Centre
Newly refurbished to a high standard, fresh modern house with own private driveway parking right in the centre of Reading town centre and 1 minute walk from the centre of the amazing Oracle and minutes from the main line train station to the rest of the country. Located in a very quiet street with hardly any traffic or passers by, so lovely and peaceful although in the middle of the action! Pretty unique we think! :o) Here is a review from Amy Celino-Potter that stayed in the house recently - "We stayed in Tessa’s super-convenient and clean house for a week, really well-placed and just a few minutes walk to the High Street and the Oracle, also walkable from the station, but down a nice quiet side street. The kitchen equipment was all modern and worked well, as did the brand new shower. Good wifi connection. The toddler in the family enjoyed the kiddie films on offer. Tessa was always incredibly friendly and professional, quickly replying to any queries with helpful advice."
What makes this House unique
Completely refurbished, smelling of freshness and all new kitchen, bathroom, carpets, furniture, curtains, rails and more ! Child Stair gate, brand new travel cot provided, Lego and some toys. Brand new commercial camp bed for downstairs allows for 1 more guests. You cannot get closer to the action in town yet retain a quiet, relaxing street and house atmosphere. Connections quickly to London, the Sth West, the North of England and major roads and motorways. February 2017 Perfect place for central Reading. Very easy to walk to local restaurants and entertainment. Very clean and well equipped with added bonus of off street parking. January 2017 Perfect house in a central location with it's own parking space! It was so quiet & peaceful too. Charles and Tessa were great hosts and we have no hesitation in recommending this property. December 2016 Cosy place at the heart of Reading. Clean, easy to find and modern. Much better than many hotels I have been at the UK. Tessa's attention to detail is second to none and all the experience was done effortless with total communication all the time. If you want to spend some time down south Tessa's place is THE place to go!

Nice location, cold water
This is a nice place for an affordable price with a great location. However, there is a "neSt" thermostat that turns off the hot water and heat for much of the time. We were catching excursions and air planes and were up early, forced to take freezing cold showers. Even those that tried to shower the night before had cold showers. Mildly annoying was the fact that the owner sent an email stating there would be cereal, milk and orange juice and in fact there was none.
Hi Amy, so sorry to hear you had issues with the NEST control on the wall, I wish you had contacted me during your stay and I could have explained how it works, the hot water and heating is good at the house and definitely in this day and age with a modern Google system like NEST there is no need for freezing cold showers! Please do contact a host in future during your stay with things like this instead of remaining silent and suffering - what a shame!
I'm so sorry to hear there was no cereal or milk that is odd as usually my cleaner replenishes the supplies before every guest so I'll look into this. We don't provide orange juice any more as we found when we did we were invariably throwing loads away as guests didn't manage to drink it all and it seemed wasteful - so that shouldn't be in the Welcome email, I will check, sorry if it was. We do however provide plenty of different teas, coffee, sugar, hot chocolate, butter, jam, honey marmite, marmalade, porridge, cereal and milk for our guests.
I'm glad you liked the house and fabulous location and found it to be a very competitive price. All the best for the future, Tessa
Comfortable house, homely and very central,
Stayed last week with my husband and four kids. It was perfect for our holiday and a great base. A couple of minutes stroll from the Oracle shopping center and lots of restaurants close by. Also the lovely touch of having tea/coffee milk, cereal and lots more provided by our host. I would highly recommend this house
Great house and great location. It was so easy to settle in and make it home away from home.
Tidy, neat, welcome pack and just set up to be ready to settle in straight away. You can enjoy all reading has to offer, restaurants close by and lots of choice as well. The rooms are all clean and well maintained. Everything is easy to use and it’s a lovely quiet street considering how close it is to the oracle! Tessa and Charles were amazing, answering any queries we had and replying straight away to help settle us even faster! This really was a great pick for our two week visit with a toddler. Thanks Tessa and Charles!
Fantastic property, location & absolutely fabulous hosts!
Clean, modern, close to everything that Reading has to offer! Highly recommend some local spots - Sweeney Todd’s pie shop, Pepe Sale are an absolute must! Incredible hosts welcomed us with essentials (tea, coffee, milk, bread, butter, OJ) - a perfect home base for our adventures to Windsor for the Royal Wedding & Highclere Castle!!!
