  • "Very clear joining instructions and details of appliances made it easy for us to settle down quickly in this warm and spacious property."

    It was clean and well equipped and had everything we needed for our stay. It was very conveniently situated at the centre of town with shops and eating places, yet was peacefully insulated against traffic noise. A lovely base from which to explore beautiful countryside and historic sites; strongly recommended.

    Thanks for your kind review, pleased you had an enjoyable stay. Property Owner

  • "Great location."

    The cottage is bigger than it looks in the photos and well-equipped. Excellent base for getting to places of interest. Shipston itself is good for shops, pubs, restaurants, takeaways, and everyone was really friendly.

  • "We thoroughly enjoy our stay."

    The property was surprisingly quiet considering its location in the town, and nice to have its own car parking space. Shipston is an interesting small town with plenty of individual shops, and is in a very central position for visiting the Cotswolds, South Warwickshire, Gardens/ Country Houses etc. A comfortable and high standard property. Hope to visit again. Alan & Gill.

    Thanks for your lovely feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and would love to have you visit again! Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely time at the old council house, the property had everything we needed to enjoy our break away."

    The location of the property was also perfect with lots of activities available, all within a very reasonable driving distance. The town centre was a short walk away, local shops were great, and people friendly. Would 100% recommend.

  • "We had a fabulous stay at No 4."

    The cottage was clean, quiet, beautifully appointed and in an excellent location. The village is large enough to have good food,coffee ,interesting boutiques but not too big that it loses its character and is busy.
