Perfect for 'Messing about on the water'
Idyllic 'Toad Hall' on the River Thames near Cookham is in the heart of the Wind in the Willows landscape created by author Kenneth Grahame, and has floated on to the market for a cool £3.45m.
The aptly-named Hall overlooks the picturesque Cookham Reach of the River Thames where Grahame grew up, and boasts 130ft of private mooring, a boathouse, and even its own willow tree in the garden.
The classic country house is an idyllic property for anyone looking for the quintessentially British boating lifestyle of Ratty, Mole and Mr Toad that Kenneth Grahame brought to life from an Edwardian England now long gone.
It is now on the market with Savills.
