  • "We loved everything about the cottage."

    It was great to come to see Midsummer Night's Dream and stay in a building that was so appropriately atmospheric. It was also very comfortable and well equipped. The parking was good, and we hardly needed the car during our stay, being so central to everything.Despite it's great age, the cottage was so warm, we kept turning down the heating. On this theme, lighter weight duvets would be welcome, and a table lamp in the far corner of the living area. I really hope we get the chance to stay here again.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are delighted that you you enjoyed the character of the cottage and its location in Stratford, so that you were close to all that the town has to offer. We will pass your comments onto the owner. We hope we can welcome you back again. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "It’s a beautiful place to stay."

    Duvets were very heavy and too hot so we abandoned them after the first night. Used the empty duvet covers with just the thin eiderdown supplied as a pretty top cover on the bed. So it would be good to have an extra (flat) sheet and / or a lighter weight summer duvet to give more flexibility. NB - we did turn the thermostat down and the heating off at night!! In January…

    We were really pleased with our stay, everything had been thought of. Very cosy, we snuggled up with the fur throws in the evening and the central heating kept us toasty and warm. Beds were very comfy and the shower was amazing. The Bear Pit Theater just down the road sometimes does free viewings on a 'first come first serve' basis. Worth checking out ahead of time as we only found out when we saw the queue. Highly recommend a stay here.

    There was a lot of mould on the upstairs windows plus the shower trap had not been cleaned for a while and flooded when used.A lot of plaster was coming away from walls in various rooms, in all it needs a bit of TLC and a deep clean.Its a shame as it's so beautiful.Also no more Netflix or Amazon so take DVDs to watch.

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at One Masons Court. That's amazing to hear it's your 3rd year, lets try and make it a 4th year.

    It is bijou, but big enough for 4 adults, in close quarters. Our stay was 3 nights and we did cook. It’s a tight space and the kitchen is really well equipped. The beds are comfortable and bathroom wonderful with a lovely bath and separate, excellent shower. Please consider providing 2 car park passes - we were 2 couples coming from different places.

  • "There is no doubt that Masons Court is a wonderful historic building in a very convenient location."

    The courtyard was a bonus, and safe for our little dog, as long as other resident’s didn’t leave the gate open. I’m afraid I have to agree with the previous reviewer about the level of comfort. The bed is the most uncomfortable I’ve ever slept in! The kitchen area is very small, which I didn’t mind, but it was so cluttered that it was difficult to prepare even the simplest of meals (usually breakfast, we ate out most nights). Also, I had to wash one of the oven trays 3 times and cover it in foil before I could use it. All of the taps wobble, and need attention. Not major issues, but none the less need to be addressed. This is the 4th. holiday cottage that we have stayed in this year, in different parts of the country, although we love Stratford-upon-Avon, (we lived here in the early eighties), I’m not sure that we would stay at 1, Masons Court when we next visit.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear of the issues you have raised. We have passed these onto the owner to be looked into. The owner confirms that the taps have been checked and do not wobble. The oven trays are usually lined with foil, apologies if this was missed. The kitchen is compact, as shown on the photographs, and only has necessary items on surface. Mattresses are regularly replaced; the most recent update was in May 2023 with a top-rated 2000 spring orthopaedic mattress, boasting a 4.6 out of 5 online rating. We are sorry to hear you found it uncomfortable, matching to the mattress type that each guest is used to at their home is not always possible. We hope you enjoyed revisiting Stratford.

  • "I realise this is an historic property but it is the most uncomfortable place I have ever stayed in ."

    My first impressions were “dark and poky”.A decent light for reading would be helpful. My husband(82 bad knee)found the stairs very awkward.It is not o good house for the elderly. The parking is very inconvenient.The so called garden area is useless.Obviously there is no View..Location good.cottage is clean and well equipped.Bedside light good for reading.Cottage well placed for cycling routes.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the property. Historic properties do have some limitations in order to enjoy experiencing all the period features. The 15th Century house was originally an Almshouse. The stairs are carpeted and have a handrail. The parking is as listed, in the NCP car park nearby The property does benefit from its central location within the town of Stratford-upon-Avon. We hope you enjoyed exploring the area.

    The kitchen was rather strangely equipped, with duplicates of some things, but no chopping board or cafetière, and few glasses (one of which was cracked). The peeling paint in the bathroom ceiling was crumbling onto the floor and sticking to our wet feet... These small niggles aside, we loved it. x

  • "We have stayed here before and the property is lovely, but a few things let it down this time."

    The patio area was unavailable because the building work at the adjacent property had damaged the fence and made it inaccessible. This was one of our main reasons for choosing the property so we notified the management company but heard nothing back. The heating was set uncomfortably high (22C) and we kept turning the thermostat down but couldn’t reset it, and so each time it was timed to come in, it whizzed back up to 22C. I kept meaning to call the housekeeper, but was only reminded when the heating got hot (5.30 am or when we got home in the evening, so too early or too late to call).The bathroom ceiling is peeling, understandable with such and old property, but not very nice. Grateful for the season ticket for parking, but had a bit of trouble working out to to put it in the machine, would welcome some clearer instructions next time.

    The NCP season ticket was very helpful and the car park spaces were adequate for our Vauxhall Corsa although there had been some reviews of the car park that indicated that the spaces were too narrow. My only comment re parking was that the short stay spaces adjacent to the property were often filled. Timing departure was therefore essential. Overall an enjoyable holiday despite cold and wet weather. The location was perfect for exploring Stratford on foot and for travelling around by car.

    It was clean & comfortable, with everything we needed. The safe courtyard was great for my little dog. Its proximity to the town centre was perfect and the car park just a stone's throw away was most convenient. A tiny minus point was that my 6'2" son & daughter-in-law would have preferred a king size bed. (Not sure if one would fit in!) We generally come to Stratford once or twice a year (depending what's on at the RSC) so we may well be back, as we said we'd love to see the courtyard garden tidied up (especially at the top end please) and in full bloom.

    Being the oldest dwelling house in Stratford, it had character, charm and many interesting details. The beds were comfortable and both the bath and shower were easy to use with plenty of hot water. The ceilings were very low which might be worth considering for those who are tall. The fridge unfortunately did not work well and leaked water and the ice box did not work at all. We had very hot weather during our stay and so would have felt the benefit of a more reliable fridge. Overall we very much enjoyed the week. Parking was well arranged and we were able to leave the car in the parking provided and walk around Stratford. Would recommend this cottage to anyone visiting Stratford for a break.

I'm conscious of the fact that, in going into raptures about the place, I may be encouraging others to book at times when we're up for it, but the truth has to be told!

  • "We had a really good weeks holiday staying in 1 Manor Court, everything about our stay was just right."

    Having parking was brilliant the cottage itself has all mod cons plus all the amazing features of age and history. Stratford On Avon has so much to offer and it’s on the doorstep and once we found our way around found it very easy for shopping and sight seeing. We have every intention of coming back as soon as we can.

  • "No. 1 Manor Cottage is a picture perfect cosy timber framed Tudor building, It is centrally located in Stratford upon Avon, within easy walking distance of most visitor attractions, including public houses and restaurants, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the beds were extremely comfortable, all cooking facilities were there should we have needed to use them more, If it had been warmer there is also a delightful shared court yard garden, we were sad to leave at the end of our stay "Thank you for sharing it with us"."

  • "The cottage was perfect for a nice stay."

    Really cosy and warm with very pleasant furnishings, all to a very high standard. The kitchen was really well equipped and all the little bits and pieces were there, even things like tea and coffee, milk in the fridge and some really nice biscuits. We had a lovely chilled stay.

  • "We would highly recommend 1 Mason’s Court."

    It has been restored to a very high standard retaining a perfect mix of modern facilities and historical charm. Anything we needed was provided and we especially appreciated the Christmas touches that were added. Location was excellent, close to all that Stratford Upon Avon offers and once you go through the gate you wouldn’t know that you were on a main road. We would suggest that the sign on the parking spot saying it was for 1 Masons Court only be made more visible as we did find other people parking in the spot when we came back after a day out which meant we had to then pay for parking in Stratford until the other car had been moved. This happened on 3 occasions in our 2 week stay which was inconvenient. Overall though we enjoyed our stay there very much.

  • "One of the best cottages I have stayed in in the Stratford area, The location of the cottage was really close to the Main street and all the main facilities."

    The cottage was very well laid out and all the facilities where on hand. Would really recommend this cottage if you want to be part of Stratford History.

The property

Rarely is it possible to stay in an historic and significant property, but One Masons Court is just that - the oldest house in Stratford upon Avon.

Dating back to the 15th Century this venerable and incredibly beautiful building is bang in the centre of one of England's most important (historically) towns.

Located approx 1 min level walk from Stratford's High Street you are a heartbeat from the centre with plenty of things to do and keep you occupied.

Step off the main street, through a private walkway and suddenly the town is behind you, and you enter a small courtyard shared with a few other historic homes, peace!

Inside, it is meticulously presented - smart furnishings and colours mix well with incredible period features to create a light home ideal for families as much as couples.

The kitchen has everything you need, should decide to 'stay in' and cook (why would you...?!).

The cosy living area has seating for four people with a 42in wall mounted TV.

Up the old stairs to two good sized bedrooms and a great, contemporary bathroom with roll top bath and walk in shower - all with slick chrome fittings.

As "bolt-holes" go this is as good as we have EVER seen.

History and fun await in this top-of-the range Stratford holiday home and we can't imagine staying in a hotel ever again!
