Henley itself is lovely, but has stratospherical prices; however, some of the outlying towns aren't quite as brutal. Sonning Common (NB - not the same as Sonning - that's expensive, George Clooney and Teresea May live there) has some decent houses, is in the middle of lovely countryside. Three pubs too! Shiplake is pretty nice. I lived in Emmer Green too, on the Henley side of Reading - town one side, country the other. If you want more info on the area, drop me a PM! PS if you ever gig in the town hall, get a good soundman - it's got the *worst* acoustics I've ever heard from stage!!!
