  • "We have stayed in many cottages over the years."

    The Roost was spotlessly clean but a little soulless! With 3 adults it was concerning that the only toilet was very slow to refill. If the property were mine to let I would install a permanent blackout blind in the twin bedded bedroom and consider hanging some pictures and or posters which suit the scale of the rooms they are in and reflect either the farm or the closeness to Shakespeare’s birth place. I would have appreciated any instructions ( the Wi-Fi code was scribbled in the front of the visitors book. ) The facilities were as described and the owner helpful but I believe with a few tweaks the property would be great instead of adequate.

  • "Lovely place to stay, good facilities and great views."

    Very relaxing. Lots of DVD's in the drawer but no player to be able to watch any. Maybe one could be obtained as definitely still useful when rubbish on television.

  • "My wife and I were seriously impressed by The Roost."

    It is extremely well-appointed, and a lot of thought has clearly gone into getting it right. The level of cleanliness is exceptional, and everything is there to make a stay enjoyable. The owner is very unobtrusive and relaxed, which is just what we like. The farm environment is a great bonus, and the birdsong is quite extraordinary. We have every intention of returning.

  • "Delightful self contained & quiet property on the ground floor."

    Ideal location for excellent meals at the New Inn - in the village - which is adjacent to the bus stop for the half hourly bus service into Stratford- which can take under 10 minutes. The owners left a pint of milk & a box of eggs in the fridge which was a very welcome surprise!

  • "A very clean property with comfortable furniture and beds."

    Good parking. Quiet and peaceful with views of the country side and conveniently placed for Stratford and other places to visit. However, twin bedroom has no wardrobe and only a few hooks on the wall to hang clothes. Kitchen has good saucepans but limited trays dishes for oven cooking.

    Felt very uncomfortable because of sifas being grubby . No where to hang clothes in twin bedroom only few hooks on wall . Cost of accommodation was overpriced due to some of the conditions

  • "We all enjoyed our stay at the Roost."

    A comfy and well maintained ground floor place to stay. It is very well placed for visiting Stratford and other places e.g Broadway. Although we had a problem with tv reception this was quickly sorted out as the owner is on site who is also very friendly. We had meals at the "New Inn" which is in the nearby village and we enjoyed the food. We all slept well in the comfy beds and the peace and quiet was lovely at night. We have already recommended The Roost to friends and would certainly stay here again.

  • "We had a lovely time."

    The owners were really friendly and welcoming. The location was perfect. Just a few miles outside Stratford upon Avon. Our two children loved living on the farm. They had the privilege to bottle feed some orphan lambs and we were very excited to witness some lambs being born. That was the highlight for my seven year old. Thank you for allowing us to share this experience.

    It is for four people but my husband and I like the space for the two of us. Windows look out onto the sheep. It is a working farm so expect to see a tractor run by the window from time to time. The farmer's mum is very welcoming. Wonderful, I'm sure we'll be back.

  • "Overall it was a really nice place, and friendly and helpful owners."

    We really enjoyed ourselves. Just a few suggestions for the future: Having a really good internet connection is so important these days, especially with the covid-19 pandemic. People want to work from home and when on holiday, and some will rent a place simply to work the whole week, as a break from home. So while we eventually got the internet to work, (the difficulty was that the security password wasn't written down accurately) we weren't sure how reliable it was. I would put some effort in to make sure it is reliable and fast and can then be advertised on the listing as a feature. We had to ask if internet was available when booking - it should be seen as a key feature. A clearer and cleaner sign at the entrance to the farm would make a better initial impression than the current one, and perhaps a few arrows as you near the buildings to direct you to the cottages. We found them OK, but it was a bit of guesswork the first time. But overall a great place to stay

Just one thought-if following satnav-ignore it when you are told 'you have arrived', just carry on a Few hundred yards more to the farm entrance. The sign is set back somewhat, so not so easily spotted on approach.

The Roost is perfect accommodation, it is clean and uncluttered and everything is of good quality.
