    Mrs MasonDec 2021

  • "From the minute we arrived at 1 Masons Court we fell in love."

    For anyone who loves old historic buildings,this place is for you. It had everything you could possibly need. The bed was incredibly comfortable. Bedding was top quality. Bath was lovely. (A bath pillow would have made It idyllic if you're like me and enjoy reading in the bath) It was a short stroll from all of Stratford's many attractions. Next time we visit we will definitely stay here again. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback! We're so happy to hear that you had such a wonderful stay at One Masons Court and would love to have you back again one day! Property Owner

    Mr TaylorOct 2021

  • "The cottage is amazing, it has been renovated to the highest standard without loosing its original status of a fifteenth century building."

    The beds are super comfy and there is everything in the cottage that you could possibly want, including netflix. which is a bonus. It is very clean and a thank you to Christine for the biscuits and milk. The surrounding area is so interesting and quirky. Plenty of great places to eat, the thatched tavern is a small and inviting pub serving up good food and ales. Loxleys is lovely for a special occasion and again good food. Thespians indian restaurant even deliver, great food. I could go on forever but check it out yourself you will not be disappointed. I will obviously be back.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back any time in the future. Property Owner

  • "Masons court is a beautiful well equipped cottage kitted out to a very high standard ."

    Stratford is a lovely place to visit and we loved returning to our cottage each day after going out exploring . Pet friendly also as an added bonus . We would 100%recommend this accommodation .

    Mrs WhiteAug 2021

  • "Lovely historic place to stay."

    Everything you need and so close to all shops/restaurants/places to see. 2 mins walk to the shops and market on Friday and saturdays. 5 mins walk to the river. Very comfortable place with all quality items. Lovely to find biscuits and milk and neighbours next door are very helpful. Only negative which is nothing to do with the house, where you park the car, the bushes need cutting back to make getting in and out of the car easier.

    Many thanks for your feedback. I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and had all you need to have a great time. Your comments with regards to the parking situation have been forwarded to the property's owner so they can now make those improvements for the next guest! Property Owner

    Mrs BradburyJul 2021

  • "My daughter and I had a lovely stay at One Masons Court."

    It was warm, cosy and comfortable with quality cutlery, crockery etc. It's so full of character yet has all modern comforts (except a dishwasher). It was an extremely pleasant place to come home to at the end of a long day's sightseeing and walking. It was also lovely and clean, which was reassuring with the Covid restrictions in place at the time of our visit. We would definitely stay here again.

    We are pleased to hear you had a lovely stay at One Masons Court and we would love for you to stay with us again in the future! Property Owner

    Mrs SnowdonMay 2021

  • "The cottage is 15th century and is very well placed for all of Shakespeare experiences."

    They are all within walking distance and shopping is great fun. Unfortunately Covid put the kybosh on visiting the museums and theatre but even so we managed to fill our whole week, with visits to nearby Kenilworth castle, Coventry and Worcester. It was really lovely to go out for the day and come back to our cosy cottage.

    Mrs BrearMay 2021

  • "Comfortable, cozy and central."

    Mr BurnsSep 2020

  • "Great venue in Stratford upon Avon."

    Top quality bedding and well equipped through out. Will definitely be back next year.

    Mr RadmoreSep 2020

  • "Fantastic holiday in a fantastic cottage."

    Spotlessly clean and well equipped, even machine coffee pods and a tin of biscuits. The location was absolutely perfect with loads of shops, restaurants and pubs a few minutes walk away. Would definitely book again and recommend to friends and family. Just one small request, a full length mirror would be an added bonus to view all our purchases from those lovely shops

    Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay at Mason's Court. It's wonderful to hear you enjoyed the shops and restaurants local to the house and we hope to welcome you back again in the future. We will also pass your comment onto the owner about the full length mirror. Property Owner

    Mrs TurnerSep 2020

  • "Lovely cottage very central but nice and quiet, good quality furnishings everything you need."

    Very clean, bed comfortable large bedrooms and bathroom just lovely. Only minus is this cottage has doubled in price for next year.

    Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay at One Mason's Court. It's lovely to hear how much you have enjoyed staying and we hope to welcome you back again in the future. Property Owner

    PearsonAug 2020

  • "Great little cottage in the centre of Stratford, Clean and tidy on arrival, with biscuits, tea, coffee sugar and milk to make a brew."

    fully furnished with everything you need and more. 5 minutes walk and you down by the River Avon, restaurants and bars within 2 minutes walk with a lot of choice. Advised to book early with the COVID restrictions because they are full especially with the meal deal from the Government.

    Thank you for leaving the advice to book early for restaurants! Property Owner

    Mr BuckleAug 2020

  • "Lovely little cottage in the centre of town so you get the best of both worlds as you are very close to pubs, restaurants, newsagents etc."

    but you have a private shared courtyard to the rear for secluded relaxation. Cottage has all you need for a holiday with comfy beds and a nice bath and a good separate walk in shower.

    Mr CroweAug 2020

  • "The cottage was amazing and very central."

    It was clean and beautifully decorated. The only criticism I would give (which isn't regarding the cottage) is the time you can access the cottage. 6PM is very late especially if you have children. I think Sykes should review this policy.

    Thank you for the positive feedback, it's always lovely to hear your enjoyed the cottage so much. With regards to the arrival time being at 6pm, this is only temporary, due to the additional cleaning that our housekeepers have to do, due to Covid. Normally it would be 4pm, but apologies for any inconvenience. Property Owner

    Mrs WilmotJul 2020

  • "We were here the week before the government closed the bars and restaurants."

    So sorry to see so many local businesses at risk. As dog owners staying in your dog friendly accommodation, we would be grateful if you could compile a list of places that allow you to bring your dog - trial and error meant we found out that most of the pubs allowed us in. Veeno in Bell Court also allowed dogs which was a real treat, and some of the tea rooms also had dog friendly signs.

    Thanks for your feedback we will make sure we leave a list of dog friendly establishments for all our guys to enjoy and look forward to welcoming you back to One Mason's Court soon Property Owner

    Mrs NewmanMar 2020

  • "Really handy for town some nice touches from the property owner."

    Thank you for your feedback, we really appreciate you taking the time to comment on your stay, it really helps us to improve services. We hope to welcome you again in the future. Property Owner

    Mrs SurmanDec 2019

  • "Lovely cosy little cottage in a great location."

    Perfect for a short break.

    Mr DitchfieldNov 2019

  • "Beautiful cottage with all the charm of an old property inside and out but with modern facilities."

    Ideal location for all places to visit in Stratford. Nice touch with biscuits and bottle of milk and netflix! would highly recommend.

    Mrs BarnardSep 2019

  • "Sweet place."

    I loved staying at 1 Mason's Court, Stratford-upon-Avon. There are two bedrooms - a double and a twin. The bathroom comes with a bath and a shower cubicle. All the rooms are well appointed with tea, coffee, milk, sugar and biscuits provided. The folder was very helpful with tips on restaurants. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place. Went to Loxley's Restaurant & Wine Bar, Sheep Street, and had a lovely meal there, but forgot to add this to the visitor's book. The duck and desserts were wonderful.

    Mr ReasonSep 2019

  • "Very central location."

    We didn't have or need a car as everything is within easy walking distance. The cottage was extremely clean and fully furnished with high quality products. We loved the welcome gift of milk and a box of biscuits. Neighbours were friendly too. A brilliant holiday!

    Mrs BarnesAug 2019

  • "The cottage had lots of character yet provided all the modern facilities you need."

    It sits just outside the town centre, a quiet area at night but a minute or two's walk from restaurants and shops which was great. A really pleasant, relaxing environment. Due to the history surrounding the cottage be aware of sight see-ers!!

    Mr StevensAug 2019

  • "We had a very enjoyable short break at Mason's Court."

    The cottage was lovely; tastefully decorated, very clean and perfect location. The cottage exceeded our expectations and we would love to stay again.

    Mrs MckinlayJul 2019

    Mr TomleyJul 2019

  • "Fantastic cottage."

    In a great location. Would definitely go back.

    Mr ShanklandMay 2019

  • "As an old Stratfordian myself, it's always a great pleasure to return 'home' for events like our Shakespeare's Birthday luncheon and the opening of the Mop Fair."

    To do this there cannot be a better location than Mason's Court, with its historic associations, its great comforts and its handiness for all the places in town we'd want to go to. 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!

    Mr FoggApr 2019

  • "This property is the best mix of having an authentic experience with all the facilities you could need."

    It’s in the perfect location and my family and I agreed this is one of the best places we have ever stayed!

    Miss WilsonApr 2019

  • "Extremely well kept and clean."

    In the centre of Stratford. All mod cons. Very characterful and comfortable property. Enjoyed our stay immensely.

    Ms JokicApr 2019

  • "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.

    Mr ReltonMar 2019

  • "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"."

    Mr MasonMar 2019

  • "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.

    Mr BarnesFeb 2019

  • "Very nice cottage for a short stay, great location."

    Mr AshtonFeb 2019

  • "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.

    Mr RollondDec 2018

  • "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!
