  • "Myself and my dog (Dylan) had to stay here for 4 weeks because of plasterers, chippy and decorators."

    The first couple of weeks were great, as Dylan has noise issues it was perfect. Views, wildlife, just brilliant. When we came back for the next 2 weeks it was awful, I was woken up daily 6-6.30 by noises in his yard.. The fires were unbelievable with car fires and bangs going off. I decided to cut our stay short and left 2 days early. How it impacted my dog and me, I won't be going back. Apart from the fires, noises and bangs it was lovely !!!!

  • "A lovely setting for our short break (with 2 dogs)."

    Clean, well equipped and dog friendly. Slight issue with the small sink in the shower room being on the small side. Signage for the property was difficult to see, so drove past initially. Would recommend.

  • "A great little place to get away from it all."

    Had everything we needed and was close enough to amenities if you run out. We could have happily stayed for longer. Garden enclosed so perfect for the pooch to run around in.

  • "This was our 2nd visit this year, we absolutely love it."

    So peaceful and relaxing. Close to amenities, we stock up on food and beverages and shut the world out for a few days, but that’s just us, there are plenty of walks and places to visit too. We love Robins Nest and will be back next year if it’s available. Enjoy the peace x

  • "Lovely little place, really peaceful and serene."

    Even though there's another property a stone throw away you can't see it and the place feels lovely and remote. Stunning views as well and having the orchard just outside the gate was great as it gave us an extra area to walk the dog. The access to the upper lawn area at the back could do with some improvement as it's quite steep and the stones can be slippy when wet but otherwise a lovely little place and would definitely book again.

  • "The small industrial estate / yard next door."

    6-7 O’Clock on Saturday morning. Burning off old plastic, wood , rubbish. Exploding tins or old gas canisters. Thick choking smoke. I ran out with a view to calling the fire brigade and was surprised to see the culprit on his digger pilling on rubbish to his fire. Not the best start to the day, nor was I expecting to have to scrub the ash off the car. This is not the owners fault. Normally the landscaping would obscure the yard and there is a great unobstructed view over miles of open countryside. It’s just on that particular day their neighbour was a bit of a git!

  • "Had a lovely 4 nights at Robins Nest even asked if I could stay another couple of nights but unfortunately it was booked."

    On the day I left I clean and stripped the bed only to be shocked at the mess of the pillows and quilt. Both were covered in disgusting yellow stains. I contacted Sykes to complain and they in turn contacted the owner. I thought maybe out of good faith I would have got an apology and maybe a small refund. Owner refused. If you’re staying there please check the bedding.

    We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We do apologise that you found that the pillows and quilt were dirty we were unaware of this as we out source a cleaner and we have since replaced both all the pillows and quilt. I hope that this hasn't put you off and will return. Property Owner

  • "Our stay was perfect."

    The only issue was not wanting to leave. We are looking to book again already. The nest was spotless inside and had everything you need. The enclosed garden was brilliant for our little fluffy boy. It was perfectly maintained and the owner even popped by just to mow the lawn again go keep on top of it. The lovely orchard surrounding the nest is also beutiful and well cared for. Id love to see it in a few more years when the trees have gotten even bigger. Watching the little rabbits in the morning was one our favourite things, as well as seeing all the crows returning to the two big trees at the back in the evening. Can't say a bad word really.

  • "Lovely couple of days much needed total switch off in this lovely little haven of peace and quiet."

    Had everything you could possibly need. Lovely comfy bed. Lots of outdoor space to wander around with the dog. Could do with a couple of larger towels. Alexa speaker didn't work but that didn't bother us. Battery in the clock needed replacing but again didn't bother us as we were there to forget about time regimes and to just chill out! Hope to return soon

    Cosy place to stay it doesn't get much better. Lovely views, clean and tidy with a small private garden. Only slight thing I would suggest with it being very remote is a welcome pack with milk, tea, coffee etc for guests arrival so the can relax and have a cuppa after their journey

  • "Some cutlery and glasses needed to be cleaned as well as the grill pan."

    But these were raised with the owner and he said he was going to address this. Other than that it was great. Really clean elsewhere throughout. Great views and isolated away from the road so generally quiet and peaceful. Really warm and cozy. Next to farmland so you can see the sheep and new lambs due to lambing season. It’s a fantastic little facility and we would love to use it again.

  • "Lovely property but very difficult to find due to the incomplete directions sent by Sykes and absolutely no signage from the main road."

    We only found it by reading a previous occupants review saying it would have been helpful if they had said " go through the gate marked Owl Cottage". Just a simple sign saying "Robins Nest" is all that's needed. That, and Sykes final directions being more specific than " continue along the A425"! That said. Once we found it, it is truly a hidden gem. Much more spacious than it looks from the photos, stunning views, and a fabulous gastropub 10 minutes walk away. Very good location for canalside strolls.

The property

Nestled in the village of Napton-On-The-Hill in Warwickshire, is this lovely, detached shepherds hut, Robins Nest.

Enjoying a contemporary interior with a blend of countryside with its wooden walls, this studio-style property is idyllic for a couple seeking a romantic hideaway.

A single-track road will lead you to your holiday home, where you will find off-road parking and a front patio garden to savour the views.

Climb two steps to reach Robins Nest and discover the open-plan living space, hosting a sleek kitchen area with an electric oven and hob to rustle up tasty meals.

Join at the dining table to enjoy a heart-warming meal and crisp glass of wine as you recall the day's adventures.

If the sun is shining, outdoor furniture may entice you to have an alfresco affair; here you can soak in the countryside views and the owner's nearby workshop until the sun sets.

As the evening cools, retire inside and take a hot shower and you can leave your towel on the heated rail to keep it fluffy and warm.

Snuggle up on the leather sofa and flicker through the Smart TV for a film night or climb into the king-size bed and escape into a good book.

Enjoy a coffee on the side patio as your canine companion stretches their legs and make an itinerary for the day ahead.

Explore your local surroundings with a visit to Wigrams Turn Marina, lined with boats or for a peaceful fishing spot there is Napton Fishing Pools, but if that's not for you, unwind in Napton Cidery.

Settled in the Warwickshire countryside is the market town of Southam, hosting a selection of restaurants to get dressed up and independent shops for unique garments.
