Alma and Brian would like to invite you to spend some time at their contemporary home that has been lovingly refurbished as a luxury bed and breakfast.
The Cricketers has a long history of hospitality and was built in 1880 on the edge of Windsor Royal Forest. Initially, the property had five bedrooms and was a 19th century coaching inn selling Burton beers from Ind Coope. It also incorporated a butchery and in 1888 supplied meat to Osborne House, Queen Victoria s residence on the Isle of Wight. In the 20th century the property was divided into private residential and a butchers shop. In 1988 Brian purchased the property and the former Butchers shop became the Hop Inn , one of the finest independent off-licences in Britain, stocking a large range of local real ales, wines, spirits and home brewing supplies. br / br / br / br / Enjoy a great night s sleep in one of our three individually designed and decorated en-suite bedrooms.
