    Immaculately clean, perfect location within walking distance of Stratford town centre. Well equipped kitchen, and comfortable beds. We really appreciated the welcome pack and parking permits and had no problem parking. The local tips were welcome too. We enjoyed fresh sourdough bread & croissants from Mor bakery nearby. Will definitely book again.

    It was just round the corner from the lovely pedestrian area, close to the railway station and bus stops. The house is light and airy with a little garden to be able to sit outside. Bundles of kitchen equipment, and appliances. Spotlessly clean.

  • "The property itself was lovely and very, very clean."

    It was very well located, and with parking, which is a must in Stratford-upon-Avon. It was a very quick and easy walk into the town centre, with everything that you might need on the doorstep. Thank you to the owners for the welcome gifts and for supplying essentials such as salt, pepper, washing up liquid etc. these were very much appreciated. However, the beds were very uncomfortable. Sadly, we all found it very difficult to sleep because of them and ended up quite grumpy as a result. Such a shame, as it was the only thing that let the property down.

    We are really sorry that you found the beds uncomfortable, we do not usually get this feedback. In fact previous guest feedback stated 'Cottage clean and beds comfortable - would recommend for location and comfort'. We will investigate further. Property Owner

    Very impressive presentation. Nice crockery and cutlery, decent mugs for a change! Great to park at the back of the property, very convenient for shops and good pubs. The street looks a bit dumpy. But is friendly. Very close to the hospital. With many walking wounded passing by! All in all was a great and happy holiday home.

  • "The property was so convenient for accessing Stratford upon Avon!"

    We only used the car once. It was so lovely to just saunter into the town whenever we felt like it. The property was spotless including the toilets/bathroom, something that is very high up my list of priorities. I don't think I've ever stayed anywhere cleaner. For a small property it is very well equipped. It would be nice to have had another couple of chopping boards and a big serving spoon in the kitchen, but really that was all I noticed and most people probably eat out more than us anyway. All the utensils, cutlery, crockery was clean and seemingly new (I loved the mugs!). It's a compact property but it's been done with thought and taste. I'd definitely stay there again if I were visiting Stratford upon Avon again.

    Location was fantastic and close to all amenities. Beds were the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Nothing was too much bother and as husband has bad chest and sleeps almost sitting up extra pillows were put in but to be honest we never needed as the ones supplied were such good quality and would have been sufficient. We never cooked in the cottage but if we had wanted to everything was supplied. We will return as it was so great and I highly recommend to my friends and family.
