There is a sailing club in Edith Weston and Rutland Water Golf club only three miles from the cottage. The A1 is just a few miles to the East which affords commuting time to many areas including Peterborough, where there is frequent train service to London Kings Cross (approx. 50 minutes & upwards).

Wytchley Road is on your left just before entering Edith Weston and Bracknell Cottage is then the 2nd property on your left-hand side.
