"A lovely holiday apartment with everything you need for a comfortable stay."
Close to the centre but in a quiet position. Would thoroughly recommend and hope to go back soon.
"Brilliant place to stay, so close to everything in town."
Just a couple of very minor maintenance issues to be addressed in the shower area. Otherwise a beautiful place!
"Such a wonderful property that we have stayed in several times, we are so spoiled by this owners attention to detail and customer comfort."
"Another fantastic stay at this apartment."
My mobilty is limited and this apartment is near to the city centre. It is ground floor and is fully accessible. The kitchen is fully equipped and the bathroom is equipped with a shower over the bath with sturdy rail, and shower mat. Lovely to sit outside on the patio on a sunny day and watch the narrow boats go past. Even though near to town the apartment is situated in a quiet area. Hosts were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble
Lovely apartment and friendly owners.
"This is the second time we have stayed in the last few months and it doesn't disappoint."
It was lovely this time to see the narrow boats going up and down outside. Its a really central location for Stratford itself and for going to places like Warwick Castle. Always feels very homely.
"Had a very lovely stay in your apartment it had everything we needed and was great to have a car parking space ."
In a good location in stratford close to all the amenities but still quite , lovely been next to the canal and watching the barges
"Excellent property, very well maintained, exceeded our expectations in an ideal position in Stratford on avon."
"This is my second time at this apartment."
Lovely layout, perfect if you have mobilty issues. Beds are comfortable, wifi is perfect, good water pressure. Minutes away from the town centre. Property has its own designated parking area. Will visit again.
"Third visit to the property and always enjoyable."
Close to all amenities and only a stroll to the town centre. Having its own parking space makes it ideal for exploring the surrounding area.The apartment itself was clean and, comfortable and being on the ground floor is suitable for the less mobile. We would recommend it.
"We absolutely love Bancroft place our little home from home,about to re book for our 5 visit."
Could just do with a little TLC on the ceilings. But once again wonderful.
"Nice clean, comfortable, warm accommodation."
Walking distance to town and two pubs serving food nearby. Enjoyed our stay.
"Our third stay at the property which is testament to our views on it."
Another pleasant stay,excellent location for access to Stratford.Well maintained and clean and comfortable.Our only comment for improvement is a very minor one but nonetheless would make it perfect:the mirrors in both the bathroom and the main bedroom could be improved .The one in the bathroom is on the window ledge and above eye level so it makes it difficult to use,a mirror on the wall(perhaps one that is retractable)would be better.The mirror in the bedroom is too small and doesn’t stay at an usable angle,so again a bigger one woukd be better. These are easy to resolve if the owner wishes to do so.We will certainly stay again in this lovely apartment.
"Property was clean and tidy had a nice and enjoyable stay"
"Another lovely break at this wonderful holiday let,in a fantastic location to explore stratford, every thing close at hand."
if your thinking of visiting stratford, look no further.
"Beautiful apartment, so close to town and attractions didn't need to use car in the 3 night stay."
Like home from home but with benefits
"Perfect location, near to the town centre and the RSC."
Lovely sitting on the patio watching the narrow boats. Even though the apartment is near to two pubs, the area is very quiet. The kitchen is well equipped and the Shower has a good water pressure., The beds were very comfy, twin beds mattresses were a little softer than the doubke bed. Designated parking space is a bonus as parking can be difficult in Stratford. I stay in Stratford a couple of times a year and possibly one of the best places i have stayed, will definitely book again. I can't rate this apartment highly enough.
"It was a wonderful week in the apartment."
It’s in a fantastic location, so close to everything and it is beautifully appointed. Clearly renovated regularly, the apartment is very appealing and modern with everything you could possibly need included. We have already booked again for next year.
"A beautiful property in the centre of Stratford-upon-Avon with everything you need, we will certainly be back."
"9 bancroft place is a spotlessly clean property with everything you need for a comfortable stay, the location is perfect 2 minutes walk to the shops and attractions one way and 2 minutes to the park and river the other."
straight outside the patio doors is the canal where we fed the swans and ducks and watched the barges sailing by, at the end of the road is a pub and another round the corner but we found the dirty duck pub which is located by walking parellel to the river was the best, i would definetly recommend this property.
"Clean and comfortable, designated parking space, ideally situated for all amenities and all accommodation on ground floor making it perfect for anyone with mobility issues."
This apartment is always our first choice when visiting Stratford, it has everything we could need and contact with Vikki is always easy and she is very helpful.
"Excellent holiday flat, right on the canal and handy for everything Stratford has to offer."
Hostess is one of the best. We've stayed here before and will stay here again. Thank you.
"We had a wonderful stay in this lovely apartment."
The apartment was beautifully kept, well equipped and has a very useful off road parking space. It is in a lovely, quiet location by the canal, yet very handy for walking into town. We enjoyed sitting outside, watching the swans with their newly hatched cygnets. Thank you for a very much enjoyed stay.
"Everything was perfect."
We will definitely be staying again.
"We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment."
It was nice and quiet especially at night for a restful sleep. Loved watching the swans and barges from the patio windows. The apartment was very clean, kitchen well equipped. Good shower and bathroom. Good parking outside the apartment and few minutes walk into Town Centre. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owner was very helpful and friendly nothing was too much trouble for her. We would certainly recommend the apartment, as we have stayed in very many over the years. We hope to make a return visit in the future.
"Beautiful apartment in a prime location in Stratford with it’s own parking space."
Right on the side of the canal and only minutes walk from all the facilities Stratford has to offer. We will definitely visit again.
"Once again,the property and area are first class."
We will re book. Thank you Sykes.
"Everything in the property was perfect and we had a great week"
"Absolutely fantastic holiday cottage, so clean and comfortable."
Excellent position so close to the town and theatre. Would certainly like to return in the future.
"Our second stay in the cottage and will not be our last, off road parking available next to the cottage and perfect location for walking into the town."
Pen and Parchment pub at the end of the road for food and drinks, across the road is the Encore for more upmarket food and drinks
"We have stayed at this apartment before, so know that it is always spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped."
The location is excellent too; close to the theatre, town centre and many of the local attractions and eateries. Allocated parking is also provided adjacent to the property- so vital in this town - and being on the canal bank an abundance of wildlife can be observed from the windows and patio area. All the facilities are on the ground floor, which is vital to our party with a family member with limited mobility, so this is the idea property for us whenever we visit Stratford upon Avon. 5 stars from us!
"We've stayed at this property before and wouldn't look for anywhere else in Stratford."
Quiet and peaceful setting with the occasional barge and swan for company. Easy walk into town and loads to look at in the area. A week is never enough.
"The property id spotless and very well equipped."
The host is very helpful and offers advice when needed. It is always a pleasure to stay at this property.
"Had a very enjoyable 4 days in Stratford."
The apartment is perfectly positioned for town or a walk along the canal bank. Spotlessly clean and stylishly presented. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. Alternatively there is always the pub at the end of the Road. Comfortable beds and excellent shower. Already looking at dates for our next visit.
"Really nice apartment in a lovely location"
"Everything you would want for a relaxing break, apartment has everything needed with the canal bordering the patio."
All of Stratford-upon-Avon on your doorstep, what more could you want.
"Exactly as described."
Fantastic location with pubs, restaurants, shops and tourist areas within 3-5 minute walk. So nice to just sit and relax and watch the boats go by, feed the ducks and swans literally from the property ! ! Would stay again.
"Our second visit as had to cancel last March."
It is in such a lovely position for visiting Stratford and all the National Trust Properties we love. Everything is perfect inside and very comfy bed perfectly clean with everything you want for a weeks stay. Lovely to be on the canal, and a couple of times sat on the patio with a glass of wine watching the canal barges. My wife was in heaven feeding the swans and little signets she was upset to leave them. Perfect bolt hole for a weeks relax from work, will be returning many times. Love it.

"Fantastic apartment, perfect central location."
Cannot get a better place in Stratford upon Avon
"Surprised at scatter cushions and extra fancy bed pillows during a pandemic,also fabric covers on dining room chairs making it difficult to to proper deep clean between clients difficult."
Also had to buy a slow cooker ourselves to cook with as none in the flat. Also no bin bags left for rubbish disposal .complement the cleaner except for the clove of garlic fallen by the kitchen radiator and cobwebs over the fire ceiling..
"Everything we wanted from the property."
So much so we have already booked again next year. Many thanks.
"This was our third visit to this lovely apartment situated by the side of the canal only 5 minutes walk from the town centre yet in a very quiet idilic location."
Loved watching the canal boats going past the french doors at breakfast and throughout the day , this trip more then usual. Any body looking for a unrivalled apartment with car parking look no further this is the one ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Mr ward . Mr & mrs T.Ward Visit : 2nd October for seven nights.
"WOW ! What can we say about this fantastic property ?"
By far one of the nicest and most convenient we have stayed in .The accomodation was lovely,access with key code was simple and convenient it was very clean with plenty of room for 2/4 adults Items in cupboards e.g washing up liquid ,dishwasher and washing machine tablets supplied as well as milk ,tea , coffee and plenty of books,dvds or games to get you settled in .Comfy beds and plenty of hot water for showers and the wifi worked perfectly when needed. The central heating was simple to control so never cold .The property is situated right on the canal so feeding ducks and swans daily and watching the barges float by was a real treat. Bancroft Place is only a 5 minutes walk into the beautiful town where there is plenty of choice of restaurants and small independant shops to visit and historic sites too.Parking on site is a real bonus for 1 vehicle,but opposite is a large secure car park that charges £10 for 24 hours if you have visitors like we did..There is a Tesco,Marks and Spencer and Sainsburys only 5 minutes away for food shopping if needed . We ate out and would highly recommend *The Bistrot Pierre and the *Turquoise Kitchen,both 10 minutes walk away.We would re-book with confidence and stay in this property again with no hesitation. Thank-you we had a lovely break.
"It was really comfortable and clean in a fantastic location in the centre of Stratford and has its own off road parking which is a big bonus."
"This is our second stay at the property."
We love it,and would not stay anywhere else when visiting Stratford.
"This is the third time we have stayed here."
Once in the summer and twice in the winter. It is a lovely apartment. It is always spotlessly clean and is very comfortable and has everything you could need for a great holiday. The location is superb. It is just 2-3 minutes walk to the centre of Stratford and about 30 -40 minutes drive to many lovely Cotswold villages. I would highly recommend this apartment.
"The holiday let was a home from home in every way and one of the best if not the best we have ever stayed in over many years of UK Holidays."
Attention to detail and cleanliness 10 out of 10 everything you could need was in place so no need to carry everything from home !! The location was just perfect by the Canal and only 5 minutes walk from The centre of Stratford upon Avon and all its attractions . The home itself was quiet and the addition of a garden terrace beside the canal with a table and chairs just perfect for you to eat alfresco. Having a Private car park beside the property was a big bonus as parking can be a nightmare in Stratford especially in the summertime. Wether you want to sit and relax ,go to the Shakespeare Theatre or walks along the canal or shop in town you would be hard to find a better holiday home . Mr T ward.
"What a superb property !"
! First visit to Stratford Upon Avon and we really could not have asked for a better property.It is located in the centre of town,in a quiet residential cul-de-sac , and with its own private parking space . The owners really have thought about , and provided , everything you could possibly need for your stay and upon arrival the property was found to be in immaculate condition and I can honestly say BETTER than some hotels I have stayed in . A REAL GEM !!!
"This is our 3rd stay at this property,great location,short walk to town centre."
"Lovely, clean apartment in a very central location."
"I only say that I would not recommend to others at all as I would like to keep ..."
I only say that I would not recommend to others at all as I would like to keep this gem of a place all to myself, my little secret
"Quality accommodation in a fabulous town and a brilliant location,if you know of a more picturesque place,i want to hear about it."
"We enjoyed our time at No9 Bancroft Place, and its position is perfect for watching the narrow boats."
Plus it is very close to shops and pubs if necessary.
"Really lovely comfortable apartment in a great central location ."
Had a lovely week just watching the longboats from the garden and strolling up into town , I didn’t use the car at all . Stratford on Avon is a very special place and the apartment was perfect accommodation for an enjoyable break .
"The location of the apartment was superb, as advertised just a couple of minutes walk into the town."
Allocated parking space was adjacent to the front door & therefore very easy for unloading/loading luggage. Property comprehensively equipped & furnished to a high standard. We intend to return next year.
"Beautiful apartment in central Stratford, couldn’t have been better."
Even the sun shone.
"Cosy property in a fabulous location."
"The apartment was very comfortable, clean and well equipped."
Although there was a lot of traffic noise, mainly in the daytime, this was more than compensated for by the location. The dedicated car parking space was a real bonus. We had a very enjoyable week exploring Stratford and the surrounding area and would recommend this apartment.
"Beautiful place on the canal perfectly placed for Stratford."
Loved feeding the ducks each morning. Most comfortable bed we have slept in. Everything you could want for a very relaxing week. Have already been looking to book next year.
"Probably the best accommodation we've had, both in quality and location (ie proximity to shops and activities)."
"The apartment was very clean, beautifully presented and comfortable, even decorated for Christmas."
It was very well equipped, and all the materials we needed - dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, foil, clingfilm, etc. - were there. It was very well situated in the town, and only a very short stroll to the centre of the town , yet quiet and peaceful. As it was sited by the canal, it was a pleasure to watch swans, ducks and the occasional narrow boat passing by. We wouldn't hesitate to book the apartment again for a visit to Stratford upon Avon.
"Excellent location for theatre and other venues in Stratford!"
"Spotless accommodation and very polite and professional host."
"If you are visiting Stratford Upon Avon to attend the theatre this is an ideal apartment in a fantastic location."
You can walk there in 5 minutes. You are in the centre of the town and all the Shakespeare Trust properties are very accessible. It is a very well equipped apartment and has the added bonus of a lovely sunny patio overlooking the canal. We have stayed here on a number of occasions and will be looking to return!
"This property was very clean, near to the shops and next to the canal with car parking right next to the property couldn't ask for a more relaxing holiday."
well worth a revisit.
"Apartment was very well located with good facilities - we had a very good stay!"
"Lovely apartment, well equipped and great location with its own private parking - invaluable in a busy location such as Stratford upon Avon!"
The owner had left us some milk and the heating was on; so very welcome for a mid January booking.We were warm and cosy for the duration of our visit and being situated alongside the waterway we had plenty of wildlife visiting us which was a bonus. Canal boats also pass by which are interesting to look at. Most of the Shakespeare properties are within walking distance as is the theatre, the tourist information centre, restaurants, pubs, cafes and all of the shops, so it is ideally placed for everything a visitor might require. Also, this property is perfect for anyone with limited mobility as it is on the ground floor and easily accessible. Definitely hope to re book soon.
"This is a superb apartment and is ideally located."
We travelled by train and it is a comfortable walk to the railway station. It is in a perfect spot for the RSC Theatre. The apartment is well appointed and we had very good communication with the owner. The only small improvement we can suggest is a grab handle in the bath! We have already booked to return!
"Location was superb and cottage itself was very comfortable and well-equipped."
Whilst we didn't meet the representative she left everything for us. including milk for a coffee etc
"The one thing I could suggest to improve this accommodation is the addition of a grab handle in the bath."
Otherwise it is a very comfortable, clean and convenient holiday home.
Most excellent services all round. We have stayed here three times and each time it seems like it is brand new. The best location in Stratford too.
"Apartment is beautiful very well equipped and perfectly located for town centre."
Would definitely recommend anyone holidaying in Stratford upon Avon to stay here.
"We were pleasantly surprised when we saw our apartment."
We met the owners who were lovely. The apartment is in a perfect location fir everything in Stratford upon Avon. We also caught the bus just across the road to Warwick.
"This was our second visit to 9 Bancroft place , we loved the apartment minutes from the town , so pleasant watching the swans and barges from the patio."
Would certainly stay again .
"Combined convenience of a central location with a parking space almost impossible to find in Stratford."
"Excellent location and a truly comfortable and well appointed apartment"
"Stayed here before,well presented,clean,very comfy,well equipt,great location by canal,5 mins walk to town."
"It is a beautiful, spotlessly clean apartment in a fantastic location."
"We loved our week in this apartment."
It is immaculately clean & tastefully decorated. The location is perfect as it is about 2 mins walk into Stratford centre. We loved sitting on the patio watching the narrow boats go by. We used the excellent bus services too & they stopped a few minutes walk away. We visited Warwick, Leamington, Broadway & Charlecote Park (Nat Trust) We loved returning to 'our' apartment each evening. We will definitely visit again.
