Hip retro interiors await at a stylish hotel on the Thames in Berkshire, housed within a former historic coaching inn - includes a choice of rooms

  • For an exquisite dose of riverside cool in a superbly English pocket of the country, The Great House at Sonning ticks all the style boxes. A punchy retro palette mixes with bare stone walls, printed animal artwork and pincushion leather headboards at this boutique Berkshire hideaway.

  • Coppa Club is a Grade II-listed, former Elizabethan coaching inn revamped with a Lisbonesque school of style. Whether you're here early for an à la carte breakfast tailored to your preference or late with all-too-pretty cocktails (Frangipane Spritz, anyone?), this is one seriously hip seven-day hangout.

  • At this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winner, Cosy rooms measure 11-14 square metres and fit in a full-size fridge and plenty of character. Deluxe rooms offer 15-24 square metres and a sitting area to kick back in, and you could even opt to enjoy riverside views from them.

Of witty Three Men in a Boat fame, Jerome K. Jerome hit the nail on the head with his pithy description of Sonning as "the most fairy-like little nook on the whole river". You're in a peach of a spot here, right on the River Thames near the quaint village's church, cricket club and golf course. This is English village life at its finest.

Reading and genteel Henley-on-Thames are both a 15-minute drive away and regal haunt Windsor Castle is half an hour from here. To take things up a notch, drive your luck to Ascot Racecourse, 30 minutes away.
