The main house and outbuildings

Tanners Farm is an extremely well presented and laid out country house offering flexible family accommodation yet within three miles of Reading Station for fantastic links to central London and Heathrow.

Originally Tanners Farm was at the centre of a large 200+ acre working farm. The main house has now been extensively enlarged and sympathetically developed to create a lovely country home in this delightful corner of South Oxfordshire. The improvments over recent years mean the property now offers the best quality finishes all within a charming period home.

The well-planned accommodation allows for flexible family living. The cinema room, office and drawing room are all linked by the orangery. This in turn opens onto paved pool area, perfect for entertaining

The Drawing Room has an integrated wood burning stove and oak floors. The cinema room has a large wall mounted screen and ceiling mounted projector. Off the Kitchen is a comfortable Breakfast Room with access to the drive, and the first floor the Master Bedroom overlooks the gardens and has a large en-suite shower room.

There are four further bedrooms and two further shower rooms and a family bathroom. The house benefits from air conditioning, underfloor heating in several area’s downstairs. There is also a large wine cellar.

Adjacent to the main house is the large 3 car garage with games a room/gym on the first floor.

The Guest House has superb accommodation includes a very large open-plan sitting room, well-equipped kitchen and two generous bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.

The separate office is also of a good size with its own WC and kitchenette. It is separate from the main house and is large enough for an extensive home office or small business complete with its own access.

There are PV panels and a solar powered hot-water system installed.


Tanners Farm is approached from Tanners Lane through a recessed entrance flanked by low brick and flint walls with a pair of electrically operated wooden gates. The gravelled drive is flanked by lawns to either side and leads to ample parking in front of the main house and garages. There is a large gas-fired generator to ensure security of electrical power in this beautiful rural setting.

To the east of the house and accessed from the gardens as well as having separate access from Tanners Lane, are two post and rail enclosed paddocks. overlooking neighbouring paddockland and gardens beyond.
