We’re offering discounts on longer stays and taking extra care to disinfect frequently between reservations. This sumptuously renovated holiday let is suitable for up to 3 people (or 2 adults x 2 small children). It has been fitted out to a high standard. The fully equipped apartment is in the Art Deco style with a 'nod' to our famous local resident 'Agatha Christie'. The house is situated in a quiet street in the center of this lovely market town which is on the banks of the River Thames and surrounded by beautiful countryside.
Chris and Philippa own Forge House. Philippa is an Interior Designer with a hotel background, hence the high standard of the interiors, comfort and extra touches.
Wallingford is a wonderful market town situated on the banks of the River Thames, situated between Reading (12 miles), Henley-on-Thames (11 miles) and Oxford (13 miles) and surrounded by beautiful countryside. Wallingford is steeped in history and the remains of Wallingford's Motte and Bailey castle and the Castle Gardens are a great place to explore and a good venue for a summer picnic. You can also trace Wallingford’s Saxon past at the museum which offers local history walks and other events. Wallingford also has a strong presence in murder mystery fiction. Agatha Christie (whose remains are buried at nearby Cholsey) lived and worked in Wallingford, taking influence from local landmarks and residents in Winterbrook for stories such as Miss Marple. Our apartment has been influenced by this 'Queen of Crime' and you will find lots of references to her books and plays. See what clues you can find. More recently, Wallingford is the location of Causton in the TV series Midsomer Murders. Many of the series’ extras herald from Wallingford and much of the filming is completed in this beautiful part of the country.
