Situated on the renowned Dorney Wood Road, nestled between National Trust land and Burnham Beeches, the property enjoys wonderful views and a semi-rural, yet convenient location. The historic, protected ancient woodland of Burnham Beeches gives hundreds of acres of extensive walks and bridleways. Burnham village provides excellent facilities for day to day shopping with more comprehensive facilities available in Beaconsfield, Maidenhead and Windsor.
Burnham is situated between the M40 and M4 giving excellent access to the national motorway network, London and Heathrow. The area's excellent communication links include regular rail connections to London (Paddington) from Burnham, Taplow or Slough and Beaconsfield and Gerrards Cross train stations (Chiltern Line) with trains to Marylebone. With the advent of Crossrail (from Burnham, Taplow or Slough), due for completion in the next few years, journey times to London's West End, City and Canary Wharf will be significantly reduced. Comprehensive leisure facilities include a selection of highly regarded golf courses with polo and horse racing in Ascot and Windsor and rowing at Henley on Thames and Marlow
