  • "We loved cider cottage and will hopefully go back in the summer."

    Vouple of things would benefit in the kichen area such as tongs and steak knives.on the maintenance the water system is terrible it coughs and splutters and could become dangerous when very hot. There should be more instructions for heating and recycling.But on the whole we loved it.

  • "Lovely holiday at Cider cottage which was very well equipped and had everything you need."

    Lovely patio to sit out on and relax, loved hearing the sound of the sheep and birds. It's in a perfect location to visit some amazing places. Everyone on the farm very friendly so a very enjoyable stay.

  • "Maybe it was a temporary problem but some real issues with the plumbing."

    The sound of the water tank in the roof place constantly re-filling at night was annoying. Also when using the taps or shower there was a pressure problem where the water came out in big bursts. Again this might have just been a temporary problem as one of the owners told us there was no water for the first hour or so of arriving. Other than that we had a really pleasant break no other problems.

    Thank you for your feedback. There was a problem during your stay in the area with Severn Trent Water. The council are building new properties nearby and this puts pressure on the mains and had caused a burst pipe. This was being repaired during your stay but was not caused by the owner or the property. There is no tank in the loft of the property. Once again, thank you for your comments Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Cider Cottage."

    It is in a lovely, peaceful setting but is well placed for visiting many places of interest. It is well equipped and comfortable, and we loved the views across the countryside from the rear of the property. It would have been useful to have instructions for such things as appliances, bins, heating, etc. The heating/,hot water system was quite noisy during the night which could be annoying for light sleepers. We had no water on the last evening (beyond the owner's control) but Mr Burrows did keep us up to date with the situation. Overall, we had a lovely stay at Cider Cottage and will definitely stay there again.

    The torch in the bedroom was a great idea, especially for us pensioners . Other than that everything was perfect, we really enjoyed watching the rabbits and birds life. Thanks Cider Cottage.

    The cottage is perfect ,well equipped to suit all your needs ,very clean and tidy and the garden is large, spacious with garden furniture. The setting is fantastic, the views are amazing, it's very peaceful and delightful listening to and watching the sheep. The owner is very friendly despite being busy on the farm. A lovely place to stay we had what we consider to be our best UK holiday to date. Many thanks

  • "We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay."

    The cottage is in a great location- peaceful countryside that feels remote enough but so close to Stratford on Avon and in easy reach of the Cotswolds and other places such as Warwick. On the farm, the birds, sheep, rabbits, and dogs were lovely to see. The cottage was extremely clean and it was well equipped, although perhaps a slightly wider bed could help. Owners were friendly and welcoming. It's a great area to stay in for National Trust members, with so many of their sites nearby and also the great castles at Warwick and Kenilworth. It's nice and easy to pop into Stratford for dinner and do the Shakespeare houses and butterfly house, and there are great walking routes nearby as well. We recommend and hope to come back one day!

  • "Yes, the walk in shower is very slippery- no mat and the floor smooth so no grip, no handle to hold onto, no where for soap, very un-user friendly."

    the boiler is situated outside the cottage against what is the head of the bed and starts up with noise at various times including in the night and early hours with louds bangs, etc... it woke me/us every time without fail !!!! if it wasnt for these reasons we would not hesitate to rebook as lovely setting, friendly owners and convenient location. however, owner does need better signage at the road entrance with a reflector light to be visible at night - it is all rather run down and a little un loved at the approach but the converted holiday lets are excellent value

  • "Cottage was nice, but we wouldn't stay there again."

    Unfortunately boiler was behind bedroom wall, and it sometimes went off at night, waking us up!. Bed was quite hard and uncomfortable with heavy, hot quilt. The 'garden' was just a courtyard and was too hot to sit in most of the time, with very limited views over countryside due to brick wall. No grass or plants! Nowhere to walk to direct from cottage. Sorry but it wasn't for us. But we did enjoy our stay.

    The cottage was comfortable, clean, and well cared for. The views were a joy and we were blessed with good weather which allowed us many an opportunity to relax with a cup of coffee on the patio looking out onto rolling fields.

I would definitely recommend Cider Cottage to anyone; it is situated in open country, yet very close to Stratford. For us, it was perfect.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cider Cottage."

    The cottage was spotless in a peaceful location with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. The country was still coming out of lockdown due to the Covid pandemic so none of the Shakespeare properties were open but, as National Trust members, we had pre-booked access to the grounds (houses not yet open) of nearby NT properties and had a lovely time exploring Baddlesley Clinton, Packwood, Charlecote and Coughton Court as well as pre-booking a visit to Kenilworth Castle (very interesting and open as it is English Heritage). We also loved wandering (at a social distance) around Stratford upon Avon down by the Canal. We plan to return another year!

    Lovely warm welcome from Jean and welcome pack of milk, eggs, tea coffee and sugar was there for us. It even provided two bottles of wine / cider although we didn't use this as we don't drink alcohol. Plenty of white goods and separate laundry room with washing machine and drier. Could not fault cleanliness. Very peaceful location and well located for all attractions. Stratford itself only a few minutes away. Would definitely go there again if we wanted to holiday in the area again and would have no hesitation in recommending.

  • "This cottage has been converted from a farm building previously used by long term owners."

    It would appear the conversion is fairly recent as there are no obvious signs of tiredness and the decoration and fitments all look new. Not a gripe but a bit surprised there was no dishwasher with a new installation. The bed was firm and clean and the walk in shower very good. There had been some previous comments about the underfloor heating being problematic to alter and it’s fair to say the wall stat doesn’t function in a way I’ve ever experienced but that said we went during a chilly damp week in October and the cottage was always warm and there was always hot water. It’s well placed geographically and we drove in all directions for up to an hour mainly to visit National Trust venues which are plentiful in the area and all had interesting stories. If you went with this in mind you would get the price of annual membership back within a few days. It’s definitely sheep country. Can’t remember seeing a cow for the week except at Adam Henson’s farm which term time online OAP rate of £8.50 was worth the visit for a few hours. All in all a very pleasant week was had by a fairly fussy older generation couple.

  • "The cottage was lovely."

    Appreciating that it was a new cottage I would suggest a couple of things; 1) would be good to have a recycling bin and maybe a compost bin as there was only one waste facility and I would prefer to see more attention to the environment. The heating in the cottage was underfloor which is great but not once was I able to work out how to control it, switching it on and off to suit my needs, seems it was off during the day but on all night. I was sometimes chilly when I was in as the weather was awful and at night when in bed I was sheltering, stayed 4 nights and never got the hang of it. Apart from these two minor and easily fixed areas it was a perfect stay. Thank you
