  • "A great location for ease of walking into Stratford and to visit by car, the multi-tude of National Trust properties in the area."

    Cottage very clean. Sofa good quality and comfortable. It's advertised as having a garden so this should be maintained. The outdoor space is the main reason we booked. It was badly overgrown and 3 of the 4 chair seats were split. These need replacing. Also kitchen cupboards need a paint. They are worn and make it look scruffy. We enjoyed our stay but the improvements mentioned would encourage us to stay again.

  • "The place was lovely and they went the extra mile to provide biscuits and fresh milk for tea and coffee along with all the amenities to make said breakfast beverages."

    We enjoyed the space very much and the location was an easy walk to the main areas of town. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was excellent. Street parking worked well as we arrived after street restrictions were lifted for the weekend. The days we needed to move the car by 10 we had plans to be on the road and didn’t return until after day time restrictions were done. It really wasn’t too hard. Enjoyed our stay.

  • "Generally we had a good time, clean property and a good location."

    But parking was an issue, finding somewhere suitable, we had decent weather so it was a pity that we couldn't sit out in the garden as it is not usable. Lastly checking in times seem to be getting later ie 5pm for this property, luckily the owner kindly let us check in at 3pm.

  • "A clean, cosy, comfortable, well equipped cottage in a great location for all the historic sites in town."

    I don’t think the listing mentioned the private little garden which would be a great place to sit in fine weather. Visitors need to be able to manage fairly steep stairs (which was no problem for us) We had a lovely short holiday. Thankyou.

  • "A lovely comfortable property only a short walk into Stratford-upon-Avon town centre."

    There's everything you need and we discovered an iron and ironing board in an upstairs cupboard (which has a stiff door) in the double bed room. We would have found different coloured towels useful so that you can tell them apart, but this is a detail. The garden at the back is lovely and sunny. We had a very enjoyable stay.

  • "Pinecote gives east walkable access to the delights of Stratford upon Avon."

    All the Shakespearean attractions are within easy reach, as are the many pubs and restaurants. The fact that we could book dates we wanted, rather than Friday to Friday, or Saturday to Saturday was a bonus.

    Arrived to find tea/ coffee and milk for that all important first cuppa after travelling ! 10 minute walk to town and shops nearer for essentials. Only issue we had was that we didn’t pack a hairdryer

  • "Comfortable, clean and warm cottage."

    A ten minute walk from the centre of Stratford upon Avon, a ridiculously beautiful town, bustling and vibrant. The only criticisms we have are:- Pillows were very thin. Towels are old and need replacing. We had a wonderful week that passed by way too quickly.

  • "There is so many sights to see in Stratford and the surrounding area and Pinecote is within easy walking distance of many of them."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our week thanks to comfortable beds and settees, a well equipped kitchen and pleasant bedrooms. Having the bathroom on the ground floor took a bit of getting used to but we were glad of the washing machine There are plenty of mugs and glasses but more dinner plates are needed. All in all, a lovely compact cottage as shown in the listing.

  • "The cottage was as advertised."

    The place was the cleanest property have been in so far. Close to the Town Centre. TV crackled a little when watching it. Was a standard TV about 15 years old, no TV guide on TV and no other channels was added to the TV. Only standard channels, such as BBC and ITV. Knives were blunt when preparing vegetables. Oven old, and took some getting accustomed to using. Hob was good to use. Heating was good and property warm.

  • "We were a bit cold."

    Thermostat did not appear to work. No internet for some of our stay but apparently this was an ISP problem. Apart from this it is a great location. Parking permit is available, this was not made clear initially. Comfy little cottage. Would recommend for summer months.

    Not far from river and RSC. House was very clean and comfy beds. Nice fluffy towels to use. Really enjoyed having an outside space to sit and relax in. Thoughtful and very welcome touches were having tea/coffee/sugar/milk and a pack of biscuits waiting for us. Felt able to relax immediately after a long journey. Lovely base to explore the beautiful town of Stratford upon Avon.

    Very clean and well equipped. Advertised as small but still adequate space even for 4 adults. We even had good enough weather to sit in the garden which proved to be a real sun trap. Owner was very pleasant and informative especially regarding parking when contacted to arrange key collection and even went out of her way to get back in touch with us when she discovered the cottage would be ready earlier than originally advised which was very much appreciated. Wouldn’t hesitate to book again.

  • "We were comfortable in the property, and it is in a great location for all amenities."

    We parked up for the week and walked everywhere. It's a nice walk into the town and surrounding attractions. Not too close for noise from bars/pubs/restaurants but close enough for a quick stroll, around 10mins if that. It was the cleanest property we have ever stayed in. There were things at the property that thought of the visitor, like kitchen cleaning products and 2 towels each for the whole family for the bathroom. There were tea towels and tea/coffee making products and other useful items too. A nice little welcome milk and cookies was a lovely touch. The TV was much smaller than we are used to, but this didn't trouble us too much. The bed wasn't the best, unfortunately, and after all that walking, a good night's sleep was a must. My husband is 6ft3+, so the double bed was not to his liking but we made it work. My teens in the other room were happy with bed comfort though. Heather was a great host and Lisa/Bex were incredible housekeepers. My son forgot his wallet bag and Lisa and Bex were too kind to hand-deliver it to us instead of posting. We are in Bedfordshire!!! I would definitely recommend and can't wait to return

    Within 10 minutes walk of the town centre, so perfect for exploring Stratford. Just a few little maintenence jobs to get on top of to make it even more perfect (fixing the bedroom window latch in particular), but they didn't detract from a lovely holiday.

    Did not appreciate being ranted at by the owner even after several apologies given for picking up car parking permit before 5 o clock

    I gave the guest the keysafe number earlier than I should have done, assuming she would respect the starting time of her holiday. like everyone else.. she arrived early and I spoke on the phone to tell her the cleaner had not been in yet. she had the audacity to go into the kitchen when she arrived at about 11 and left a note to the cleaner to say she needed to park her car, so had taken the parking permit. How dare she be so utterly thoughtless and self centred.??!! THank goodness she left, so didn't stay Property Owner

    About 10 minutes. It was clean, and well kitted out. However the sofas are worn out, and so uncomfortable. I would say the springs have gone, and should be replaced. It is also tiny, so you do need to get on if there are more than 4 of you. We found that we spent more time out, even evenings, than in.

    Thank you for your feedback. The owner has now replaced the two sofas and the mattresses on the beds. Property Owner

    We hope to return soon. People were very friendly and there was lots to see and do. Highlights were Shakespeare’s school rooms and Mary Arden’s Farm. Pinecote is a cosy, well equipped, cottage within walking distance of the town. It is not luxurious, some of the furnishings were a little shabby, but we found it comfortable and relaxing. The coffee, tea and biscuits provided were a nice touch, as were the cleaning supplies and dish cloths. Enough kitchen equipment is provided to prepare a full meal, should you feel that way inclined. We were very happy with the cottage and would not hesitate to stay there again.
