Finding the Perfect Holiday Home in Berkshire

A holiday in Berkshire promises a heady mix of British royalty and stunning rural landscapes. Situated in close proximity to London, Berkshire is a scenic county known for its plethora of castles and palaces which adorn the picturesque countryside. From the iconic Windsor castle to the stunning natural beauty of Beale Park, you’d have much to explore. What’s more, you can choose from a host of holiday rentals or cottages to suit all your requirements and budget as well.

Enjoying the Natural Beauty of Berkshire

The diverse natural terrain of the countryside would be a treat for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. Bring along your best pair of walking boots and follow your feet wherever they may take you. Or follow the marked trails that line the countryside. The Ridgeway National Trails is one such trail that must not be missed out especially if you want to see the historical monuments of the county. But if you prefer to enjoy the fresh air and lush greenery without the effort, then try horse riding. A visit to the Beale Park will not disappoint. With over 400 acres of diverse terrain and a wide variety of wildlife to discover, this parkland reserve is a delight to explore. Adventure enthusiasts would have plenty of activities to pursue as well. Mountain biking would be an excellent way to build up the adrenaline. But, if you choose to unwind and escape from the urban stresses, then a Berkshire holiday would be perfect too. With the River Thames and Ketting flowing into the county, fishing would be an ideal recreational activity to do. From discovering quaint villages to enjoying quiet walks along the river, you’d find it hard to have a dull moment. It’s probably hard to escape history in this fascinating county with its wealth of historical monuments. The Iron Age Walbury Hill Fort, Brunel’s Railway Bridge, Highclere Castle and the beautiful Ashdown House are just some of the must- see places in the county.

Exploring Culture in Berkshire

A visit to the vibrant town of Reading would be definitely worth it. This charming town is situated in the centre of the Thames Valley and is an eclectic mix of culture and modernity. Indulge in retail therapy and enjoy the bustling nightlife after you’ve had your fair share of castle hopping. The location of this town makes it all the more perfect to explore the many places in the county. And make sure you visit the magnificent Windsor Castle while you’re here.

Getting to Berkshire

It couldn’t get any easier reaching your holiday cottage in Berkshire with its close proximity to London. You can choose to directly fly to London and hire a car at the airport to reach your destination. Alternatively, you can make the most of the extensive rail or road routes that connect the county to the rest of the country.

A Perfect Spot

5 of 5
This flat was absolutely tailor-made for our small family of two plus an eight year old. We loved everything; the flat, the town, the history. Thank you.
