  • "A lovely, cosy base for a winter weekend get together."

    The house feels like someone’s home, with lots of pictures on the walls and well resourced kitchen cabinets. The AGA and large kitchen table boosted the convivial mood. With a great location, room for parking, and Stratford just down the road it was all we needed.

  • "We had a lovely weekend at Highcroft."

    There was enough room for all of us - 6 adults and 2 children. The large kitchen area is especially pleasant and warm in October with the Aga running. Please note that if all bedrooms are in use then the occupants of 2 of the upstairs bedrooms can't get to the kitchen without going through another bedroom. This is OK if everyone is a family member but may not be if a group of friends have got together, for instance.

    All equipment provided and plenty of extras, scones and jam a welcome treat! Swing in the garden was used daily and the owner kindly repaired a second swing later in the week, Very much appreciated by granddaughter Wld life in abundance we saw: badgers, deer, rabbits, stoat and had the please of watching newly hatched blackbirds nesting outside the kitchen door. Lovely place to rest and recuperate.

  • "This is a lovely house; clean, comfortable and extremely well stocked with all you need."

    The kitchen has everything you need to prepare and cook meals with a wide range of pans, dishes & baking trays. Beautiful garden with plenty of seating & a very comfortable lounge to relax in. The owner was very friendly and helpful with advice on places to visit locally. The house is in a lovely location with easy access to Stratford-Upon-Avon and some lovely walking across footpaths directly from the grounds. You just need to be a little bit careful when getting out of the drive way as the traffic is quite fast moving; this did also mean there was traffic noise when sitting in the garden. The only downside for us is that one of the bedrooms has to be used as a walk though for access to the other bedrooms so the house is really only suitable for 8 (or maybe 9). We had 5 adult couples staying for one night so the downstairs bedroom had to be used for access to the ground floor. It was fine for the other nights when there were only 8 of us as we could use the room upstairs for access. If the single room is just needed as a single bed, maybe for a child, this can used for access. In this case the downstairs bedroom can be used almost as an on-suite room with the shower-room right next door. I don't think we completely understood the house layout from the description; although reading it again now we've stayed in the house the information is there, just perhaps not as clear as it could be.

  • "A very comfortable and well equipped cottage."

    The AGA was great (electric hob/oven also in kitchen) as was the large garden, tennis court and comfortable sitting room. Read the description carefully as the small bedroom and downstairs twin bedroom act as access to other bedrooms/bathrooms/staircases meaning two of the upstairs bedrooms and the main bathroom can only be accessed through another bedroom, something that meant lots of tiptoeing about in the evenings.

    Garden was perfect for children and dogs, and there was plenty of garden furniture for all. Some areas in the kitchen needed a deep clean and the bbq didn't work! There was a faulty valve when linking the gas canister. This could potentially be a risk to all. We were disappointed that this facility was not available, as I specifically asked the owner, who confirmed a bbq was available for us to use. Peter was very helpful.

  • "Overall we had a good stay at this property and would recommend it, particularly for families."

    It is an attractive house and is well maintained with nice furnishings and equipment. As others have mentioned in their reviews, the layout is unusual due to it being two former cottages converted into one house. If you’re staying here with family members this wouldn’t be a problem, but we were staying with friends and people we didn’t know that well, so it was slightly awkward when having to walk through other people’s bedrooms to get to the bathrooms or the staircase. It would be helpful to have a floor plan of the property on the website to help with planning where our guests were going to sleep. The kitchen is the heart of the home and well equipped for self catering, and it leads into the large garden where there is an outside table and chairs. The back garden is perfect for children and dogs because it is safe and enclosed. This is also a good house for older children and teenagers as there is a tennis court in the front garden. The one drawback is that the house and garden are very close to a busy A road. The noise from the traffic does disturb you during the day and at night and is something you’re aware of all the time. Otherwise the house is in a good location, only five minutes drive from Stratford upon Avon with supermarkets, shops and restaurants.

The bedroom layout is a bit unusual (the downstairs twin room and the upstairs single room are both through rooms) but it worked for our group and the children had a lot of fun racing round and up and down the two staircases! It is just off the main road, so there is traffic noise in the garden, but not a problem inside. All in all, an excellent place to stay and would recommend. Scones on arrival were much appreciated!

    Great location for walks with easy access to Stratford upon avon and local attractions. The garden is well maintained and secure for children and dogs. The front garden was wonderful, everyone loved the wildlife, swings, slide and enjoyed the tennis court. The owners are very welcoming and the scones with jam on arrival were very nice. The only down side would be the layout of the bedrooms, needing to walk through bedrooms to access the stairs but this didn't really cause us much bother. Some areas of the house could do with updating, like replacing springy mattresses and replacing old curtains otherwise this house is fantastic, lots of space inside and out.

  • "A lovely, roomy house with good facilities in a great location, less than 10 minutes' drive from Stratford-upon-Avon town centre."

    Kitchen-diner was a good area for socialising with a large table suitable for games. This aside, we felt that the house needs some TLC as most things were stained (including carpets, bedding, curtains, tea towels, table cloths etc), as well as mould on the second kingsize bedroom curtains. The towels were also very worn, some with stains. Some extra basic cleaning also wouldn't go amiss such as cleaning out the cutlery tray which was full of crumbs, and when pushing a couple of the twin beds together, an old sock and a pill of some description were found. The shower curtain and rubber bath mat in the ensuite should be replaced as very mouldy. Overall, if some changes could be made to the cleanliness of the house it would be a much more pleasant stay.

    The kitchen was always lovely and warm with the Aga and plenty of cooking pans and dishes, cutlery and crockery. Lots of interesting features all around the house. The garden was so lovely and we would definitely book this house again, despite the one drawback. Although I have marked "Met Expectations" it exceeded expectations if it wasn't for the toilet facilities. We were 3 retired couples who wanted a house where every couple had their own bathroom. We had this, but their is no downstairs loo unless you walk through somebody's bedroom, which meant you had to go upstairs to your own bathroom to use a loo. When playing games in the evening it was a bit of a pain, especially as there is enough space downstairs, under the stairs to put in a loo and sink. If we were not in our seventies it would not have caused a problem. We played boule in the garden and had some good weather to enjoy sitting out in the garden. HighCroft is situated in an ideal location where Stratford upon Avon is only 2 miles away and also visited Morton in Marsh, Bourton on the Water, such wonderful places to visit for shopping and eating out. Thoroughly enjoyed our short time at HighCroft and it all ended too quickly. Would still rate this house 9 out of 10 and I am sure there are families who don't mind sharing facilities which would make this house an ideal 10 out 10 plus choice.

    The single room should not be a bedroom but a corridor - and by advertising it as a room, we invited a 7th person - and this meant that is someone in either of two bedrooms upstairs woke in the night or woke earlier than others, they had to walk through somebody's bedroom to go downstairs. This should have been made clear. Our other disappointment was the showers, which were not terribly good. Otherwise, the house was wonderful.

  • "The owners were very accommodating and allowed us to hold a party for an extra 21 people in the garden."

    They were also prepared for my guests to collect the keys and stay in the property for two days before I arrived, as well as keeping correspondence to email so the surprise was kept from my husband. We particularly enjoyed the garden, tennis court and trampoline (for my granddaughter).
