The
Experience

On a quiet, genteel cul de sac tucked away in Old Windsor, Marion has created a cosy, self-contained bolthole for guests. Your annexe is just 200 yards from the Thames and overlooks a pretty garden; the elegant bedroom has down pillows and white linen, fine china tea set and an old treadle sewing machine serving as a dressing table. The shower room sparkles and is replete with handmade smellies. You get sole use of an unashamedly traditional sitting room with open fire in the main house, near the dining room where Marion serves impressive full Irish breakfasts, along with an unending supply of her delicious baking.

Reviews

If you want to visit Windsor then we can highly recommend staying at Mr & Mrs Clark's home. It is a 10 minute drive,15 minute bus journey and a 40 minute walk away from the hustle and bustle of Windsor town centre providing a quiet and relaxing location away from the crowds. Both the self contained bedroom and the lounge in the main house are extremely comfortable. Mrs Clark has an extensive knowledge of the local area, Windsor Castle and St George’s Chapel.Mrs Clark was accommodating to our wishes in respect of arrival and departure times. We hope to return again next year.

We were delighted that James and Marion could have us at short notice and they could not have been more welcoming or accommodating. Originally from Northern Ireland themselves, they are deeply immersed in the Windsor community (both are Lay Stewards at St George's Chapel) and their home provides the perfect base from which to a visit to the local area (nb ask for a key to access the Thames waterfront closeby). The bed was perfect, and we can happily endorse everything that Sawday's description and other reviewers have said about things like cleanliness, comfort and the sumptuous breakfast.

Claire, Llanelli

We stayed in this charming B&B so that we could visit Windsor, Eton and Hampton Court, both very close by. The room and facilities are lovely with everything you need included...plus some nice extras. The location was great. We caught the bus for a short ride into Windsor to avoid the crowds. We were indulged with a lovely afternoon tea in the garden each day we returned! Great recommendations for restaurants too. It is a relaxing oasis away from the crowds.

Ursula, Sydney

A charming home and an even more charming host greeted us on beautiful summers afternoon. We hardly wanted to leave to go out but after a refreshing cup of tea and beautiful home made cake in the tranquil gardens we reluctantly headed off. We only stayed for one night but would not hesitate to visit again. With so many thoughtful extras we felt truly pampered and nothing was too much trouble. We were served a smorgasbord of dishes for breakfast including a delicious Spanish tortilla, and many other homemade goodies. A stroll along the Thames made for a perfect ending to a perfect stay.

Jenny, Bournemouth

Our one-night stay was a truly memorable experience. Arriving late evening, we enjoyed a welcome cup of tea and home-made cake in the comfortable drawing room overlooking the garden, and were made to feel comfortable by Marion, our host. Although it was a sultry evening, the classic bedroom was pleasantly cool and guaranteed a good night’s sleep. The adjoining bathroom was spotless and featured a powerful shower. Breakfast was a beautifully presented tour de force, reflecting great effort and preparation. We were allowed to savour and appreciate the experience at leisure. Highly recommended.

Alun, Cardiff

Very comfortable accommodation of a high standard. We were well looked after, with Marion and James making us feel at home. Marion is thoughtful - as it was so hot during our stay she provided us with a sumptuous cold breakfast spread instead of the usual cooked full English. On hearing our hiking interests, she also researched walks in the area for us to do. The Thames walks, local attractions, pubs & restaurants, and ease of access to Heathrow made this an ideal location for a final pit stop before flying home. Although we spent only one night this time, we will definitely be back.

We had a wonderful stay at Monk's Walk. We were greeted with freshly made lemonade and cake which we ate in the beautiful garden, and the house and room itself are lovely and full of thoughtful extra touches that make you feel very well looked after. The breakfast was also fantastic and Marion catered very well for my vegetarian needs! The location is also great for some nice walks along the river. I would highly recommend to others looking for a cosy getaway in the English countryside.

Rebecca, London

If you arrive at Heathrow Airport at midnight after a long haul flight what would be your dearest wish of a B and B? A warm room, hot shower and comfortable bed? Of course. How would you feel if your hostess was so thoughtful she had set out a plate of egg sandwiches and a flask of the most delicious mushroom soup to welcome you at that late hour? This is what greeted us as we staggered into the guest cottage at Monks' Walk. We were enchanted and mightily grateful. And then, next morning a wonderful breakfast in the Clarks' attractive dining room, served with care by Marion. Perfection

Em, Bristol

Traditional old world hospitality . I tasted one of Marion's scones-perfection-what a baker!I bet her cakes are scrummy. Breakfast superb. Charming but small bedroom with nice little touches which opens directly onto the delightful garden.Good sized ,clean,and efficient shower room with wc and wash hand basin all for sole use of guests ,2 steps along the passage which leads to the main house. We are so glad we chose here rather than a soulless airport hotel before flying from Heathrow which even at 8.45 am took only 35 minutes to reach by taxi. Marion said that it normally takes 20 minutes.
