Our Cottages

Just a short walk from the pub

Why not make the most of your trip to The Hand and Flowers? We have 11 gorgeous bedrooms, with everything you could ever need for a luxurious and relaxing stay. Huge, comfy beds, vast baths, rain showers — some rooms even have a hot tub.

In the morning a delicious cooked breakfast is waiting for you in the pub. You can choose from our menu, or let us know if there’s something special you’d like us to make for you.

Four rooms are in Flower Cottage, right next door to the pub. Four more are in Apple House, on Marlow’s lovely High Street. A further three rooms are in Duck Terrace, just off the High Street.

Apple House and Duck Terrace are just a five minute walk from the pub (you will have your own designated driver).

All of our rooms have a flat screen TV with Netflix, extra big bath robes and a Nespresso machine.

Mere Lafan



The name is recorded in 1015 as Mere lafan, 
meaning "Land left after the draining of a pond" 
in Old English.

Our home, Marlow is a gorgeous old English town, on the banks of the Thames. It’s at least 1,000 years old and appears in the Domesday Book, where it was called Mere Lafan. If you’re coming to The Hand and Flowers, it’s well worth allowing some extra time for a stroll along the river, or a look around the shops. While you’re here, why not visit the following places?

Things to Do In Marlow


Marlow Suspension Bridge

This 19th Century bridge was by William Tierney Clarke, who later used it as a template for his bridge connecting Buda and Pest in Hungary.


Literary Marlow

Many literary figures have lived in Marlow, including Mary Shelley, Percy Bysshe Shelley, TS Eliot and Jerome K Jerome. Pick up a leaflet from the tourist information office for a walking tour of the town.


Thames Path

Walk from Higginson Park upstream to Temple or Hurley Lock, or downstream to Cookham and Bourne End. Make sure you take in the view from Marlow Lock.


The Rebellion Beer Company

If you like the beer we serve at The Coach and The Hand and Flowers, why not take a short trip to Marlow’s very own brewery. They are open Monday to Saturday 8am until 7pm and closed on Sundays and Bank Holidays.
