  • "Lovely cottage, clean and well fitted out."

    In the grounds of the owner's house. He made us feel very welcome and was available if we had any queries, but otherwise left us to ourselves and was never intrusive. The availability of an EV charger was especially helpful. Nice quiet area but lots of places to visit nearby, Hidcote Gardens, Charlecote Park, Warwick Castle and Batsford Arboretum all well worth a visit. We had a really good time and would throughly recommend it.

    Thank you for your kind words. We are glad you had a lovely holiday. Property Owner

  • "Welcoming touches much appreciated."

    Spotlessly clean. Comfortable. Dog friendly but minor problem for us was no small enclosed area so we had to follow our dog everywhere to make sure she didn't leave unexpected mess. Would have liked a washing line. These are such small niggles. We loved our time at granary cottage. Thank you so so much.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are pleased that you loved the property and have passed your comments onto the owner. I am pleased to say that the owner has now added a gate and the area is now secure. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Homely, clean & comfortable."

    Well presented in a beautiful and peaceful setting. Russel had turned some lights on for us as it was dark on our arrival. Would recommend and return. The DVD player, CD player and iPod docking station need to be removed from the summary as these were not available in the cottage. Strangely, CD’s & DVD’s were supplied?

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at Granary Cottage. It's lovely to hear how much you enjoyed staying with us and we will pass on your feedback to the Owner for review regarding the DVD'S. We hope to welcome you back again in the future.

    We stayed during a period of very hot weather and found the bedrooms intolerably hot so purchased a couple of fans, these did help. The property and area are beautiful and well worth visiting.

  • "It was an amazing place to stay."

    We loved the comfort of the place and all the amenities. Such a luxury to have 2 toilets in a 2 bed holiday home! Our little one hasn't stopped talking about the tree house or how helpful Russell was in showing us where we could play. We loved seeing the peacocks. The cottage was brilliantly situated for walks, visiting the Cotswolds and Stratford-upon-Avon. We'd love to visit again.

  • "I rang Sykes to request an earlier access to the Granary than stated 6pm because my mother (91), is blind and it would have been helpful…No reply except a reminder of the stated situation!"

    Turned up at 6pm and the welcome pack said access was 4pm!??? Very annoying. The extra time would have help to assimilate for her… Owner, Russell was very pleasant and helpful when we arrived, but no further help was required. The cottage itself was lovely, comfortable and well equipped and would recommend it to anyone!

    Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback. We're delighted that you loved the cottage and found it to be comfortable and well equipped. Regarding the check-in time, we apologise for any misunderstanding and hope this didn't impact on the rest of your stay. We are gradually trying to bring forward the times following Covid.
