Springs is in a wonderful scenic waterside oasis which enjoys the luxury of having fabulous restaurants and pubs close to hand as well as easy access to Henley on Thames, Reading and London.
Springs is located in Sonning Eye, which is a beautiful hamlet on the River Thames in Oxfordshire. A millrace cuts through this roughly heart-shaped Island and lies opposite the quintessentially English village of Sonning in Berkshire. The two places are linked by Sonning Bridge which forms the county line boundary. There has been a bridge in this spot since 1125, and rumour has it that it was an escape route for Dick Turpin, who lived in the area. Look out for the post box on the side of the Grade II listed bridge that can only be reached by water! Although few shops are in the village’s high street and hamlet, you will find several pubs and restaurants to enjoy.
The Mill at Sonning is a converted 18th-century mill that has been lovingly converted to house a theatre, restaurant and bar. It’s extremely popular for dinner and a show and is adjoined to the Mill House, which just happens to be the home of George and Amal Clooney!
The 16th-century pub, The Bull Inn, and The French Horn offer traditional English pub food, while The Great House at Sonning offers fine dining in a historical setting.
The village is home to several historic buildings, including the 13th-century St Andrew’s Church and the Old Vicarage, once the home of the novelist George Eliot.
There are wonderful riverside walks along the River Thames, including the Thameside Walk, starting in the car park of the Mill at Sonning and lasting three miles to Shiplake, or the Thames Path, which is a long-distance walking trail in both directions and is well-signposted and easy to walk. Sonning is a popular spot for boating enthusiasts, and a wonderful day out is to either rent a boat or take a boat tour of the river’s tranquil beauty.
There are loads of fabulous places to visit only a short drive away, including Henley-on-Thames, famous for its boat regatta, Hambleden, possibly the most picturesque village in the Chiltern Hills and Windsor, home to the Royal Family.
Springs offers a wonderful escape from the maddening crowds and offers a unique, indulgent waterside experience. If you fancy a luxurious getaway with friends or family in a beautiful exclusive riverside location, then Springs is the property you have been looking for.
