The village of Sonning Eye is technically in Oxfordshire, on the boarder of Oxfordshire and Berkshire, and opposite the village of Sonning in Berkshire (yes, it’s a tad confusing).

There is a lot of beautiful scenery including the famous Sonning Bridge – check out the fabulous post box on the bridge itself!
