  • "Lovely place."

    Well kitted out although chairs round table were rather uncomfortable. Kitchen utensils etc good but not really any suitable dishes with kids for cooking in the microwave. Excellent TV and comfortable seating. Good mattress often not the case in other cottages. Cosy and light. Would certainly come again. Shame we didn’t get to meet owners.

    Sorry you found the dining chairs uncomfortable. We have the same mattress on our own bed so I know it’s comfortable. I will check if the microwave containers need replacing ASAP. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Property Owner

  • ""The perfect spot for a quiet getaway or a fantastic base for exploring the beautiful Warwickshire countryside."

    The Lodge is excellent with everything you need in a home from home, the bed is probably the best we have slept in (including our own!) and the accommodation was immaculately clean and tidy when we arrived. Judith and Alasdair (and Billy the Airedale) are the perfect host, leaving us to our own devices but on hand for any questions or enquiries we had, nothing seemed to much trouble. The village is quaint with a number of walking routes around the area and the food in the Halford Bridge Inn is superb. Unless you just want to stay in the village and chill, you will probably need a vehicle (we didn’t try public transport) but Shipston on Stour is only a couple of miles away and Stratford upon Avon and Warwick are within very easy reach. This is probably the best location we have stayed in in the last 10 years." Thank you for the use of your fantastic lodge and we’ll definitely be planning our return. ( if you’ll have us
