GETTING THERE AND AROUND

It takes between 45 minutes and one hour to travel to Henley-on-Thames from London Paddington using Great Western Railway services. Trains run twice hourly, and the journey includes one change at Twyford. www.gwr.com

EAT, DRINK, SLEEP

Located on the Market Square, the hub of the town, Crockers has three restaurant­s in all. Our recommenda­tion is Thames Table, one of Crockers’ two 16-seat Chef’s Table restaurant­s. Showcasing classic British food with a touch of genius, this intimate concept allows guests to watch and interact with the two talented chefs as each of their complex seven courses is rustled up. After you’ve wined and dined, you can sleep in one of the six rooms that fill this characterf­ul Georgian townhouse, all stylishly furnished and adorned with thoughtful little touches: sumptuous Noble Isle toiletries and Crockers’ own premade cocktails in the minibar. www.henley.crockersuk.com
