Kate Commerford and partner Adrian Wybrott, 38, were enjoying a summer's evening with friends in the garden at their Binfield home into the early hours of Sunday morning.
But when the couple decided to call it a night at 2am - they discovered a fox had crept into their house and was chewing its way through a handbag on their bed.
Ms Commerford said: "It was lying on the bed like a dog.
"It ran into the spare room and hid under the bed there - it took us 10 minutes to get it out.
"It was really brazen and it was a big fox - four feet long.
"It was really shocking, really quite scary."
A neighbour had visited the couple earlier that same evening - and had left the front door open by accident, letting the fox into the house.
