The Holybrook flows from the River Kennet at a junction known as Arrowhead and onward towards Reading Abbey. The footpath continues along the Holybrook and leads to the water meadows and a play area for children and joins the towpath beside the Kennet & Avon Canal. Calcot Golf Club is within walking distance.
Manor House is set in a peaceful area and yet is within easy walking distance of buses giving access to Reading, easy driving distance of the Sainsbury Savacentre at Calcot, and Reading is only approximately 4 miles. The M4 Junction 12 is approximately 2 miles, which gives a easy access to London and airports, including Heathrow. Excellent train services at Theale and Reading give intercity fast train services to London Paddington and there is a Rail Air coach service from Reading Station to Heathrow.
The countryside between Calcot and Newbury has long been known as an area of outstanding rural beauty with the River Thames running through the pretty riverside village of Pangbourne, which is only a few miles by car, with its many shops, excellent pubs and restaurants, and the Adventure Dolphin Canoe Centre.
Schools: Little Heath School is only a short driving distance away which has been noted for its academic achievements, Reading Boys Grammar School, Kendrick Grammar School for Girls, and there are plenty of private schools including St. Andrew's Preparatory School, St Edwards Preparatory School, Bradfield College, Pangbourne College, The Abbey School which also has a junior school, and Downe House to name but a few.
