What says..

Built on 34 acres of primest Caversham (or ‘Caversham actually’ as it’s known by residents. It may be just over the bridge from Reading but mix the two up at your peril). Handsome Victorian brick pile set in immaculate lawns with, at the time of our visit, groups of girls dotted decoratively about, reading in the sunshine.
