  • "We had a lovely stay at Globe Cottage."

    The property is very comfortable and immaculately clean. It’s also in a great position with views over the playing fields - and just a short walk into town.

    Hi Peter Thanks so much for the positive feedback it is appreciated and we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and your time in Stratford! If you ever return don’t forget to contact us as we do a return guest hamper Info@globe-cottage.com Thanks again - Dean Property Owner

  • "The cottage is beautiful."

    It is fitted with just about every gadget possible. We would definitely book again. Our only minor complaints are, and they are minor. The bed is small compared to ours so it's a bit uncomfortable and the other one is, we put the bins out for Thursday to be emptied and one was not emptied. We don't know why as at home the bin persons put a sticker on to say what is wrong so it can be corrected. As both bins were not emptied the week before one is now quite full. Other than that Globe Cottage is fabulous

  • "Booked this as a post Christmas break for my parents and they loved it!"

    As a family that have continued to Shield due to extremely vulnerable adults they were impressed with the high level of cleanliness on arrival and we’re immediately put at ease. They both love Stratford and come frequently, usually staying in hotels but they said this house was perfect for more space and privacy but close enough to both the historical centre and the newer retail park to really experience the area. Both were impressed with all the amenities and gadgets in the kitchen and said it had everything they needed and more and it took my dad minutes to connect the tv to all our streaming services, so another plus as this really was meant to be a relaxing break and he has found some smart TV’s difficult to navigate meaning no access to their favourite shows. They said they felt lovely and cosy but it would be perfect for my little family of 4 too. My boys were very jealous about their Grandma and Grandad having a hot tub, unfortunately being January neither were brave enough to use it but did comment on how lovely the garden was and did enjoy a few lates breakfasts out there on the odd mild day. Love that there’s an EV charging point too, definite bonus for the future as we’re not electric yet but soon will be.

  • "A stunning gem of a cottage located within a short stroll of the town centre."

    Exceptionally kitted out and one of the best I’ve ever stayed in. I stayed with my sisters and sister in law and I hope we’re going to make it an annual trip, if so we will definitely be back.

    Hi Tina. That’s great to hear we’re glad you enjoyed the cottage and Stratford on Avon, we appreciate the kind feedback! If you do return please email us ahead as we do a returning guest hamper to show our appreciation. Thanks again - Dean Property Owner

  • "We spent a fantastic 4 night new year break at Globe Cottage, a lovely, modern, well equipped holiday home in a great location."

    On a quiet road yet just 10 minutes walk in to town. We've had a few cottage breaks now and Globe was by far the best equipped, pretty much everything we forgot to bring was there. And the added bonus was the hot tub which we were happy to enjoy even on a chilly January evening. Only downside would be if you're tall (we're not) you may find the upstairs rooms a bit of a problem as the ceiling is very low in places, but would highly recommend nonetheless.

    Hi John, we wanted to thank you for the positive feedback it is much appreciated and we'd love to see you again the future! All the best and thanks again Dean Property Owner

    lack of appliance manuals lack of normal knives - only one and steak knives. Lots of excellent touches,great build quality and location.

    Hi Peter, Thanks for the overall positive feedback. We wanted your stay to be all round perfect and the maintenance team didn't advise that some of the cutlery had been misplaced/lost by some previous guests. Should you wish to book in the future we will arrange complimentary drinks and welcome pack as an apology or if you contact us via Sykes we would look to reimburse you something as a goodwill gesture. Please note in the welcome pack i advise contacting me for anything so again if you do stay with us in the future please do not hesitate to contact me day or night and will get any issues rectified straight away.

  • "Had to return home earlier than expected as we found the sofa and beds extremely uncomfortable."

    Bedrooms and lounge were smaller than we imagined, kept bumping our heads. Outside space so small as well, too close to the rugby field where the players came close to the garden every day.

    Hi Gary We are sorry to hear this feedback, however I did email you while there to discuss the issue and alternative arrangements if required but did not hear from you. The pictures of the property are online when booking which show the rooms but to date we haven't had any negative feedback on this. Also the sofa beds are there as a backup to sleeping arrangement's as the property accommodates 4 guest which the beds are adequate for, however we could have provided further linen and blankets to assist if you were using the sofa bed. Regards the field, this is a private school with the pitch being used occasionally by the children that attend the school, but again we have never had a complaint regarding this previously. However if you are happy to reply to the email sent by the team we will happily refund for the days you were not at the property and we are sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay with us as we intended. Thanks Dean Property Owner

  • "A lovely place to stay - spotlessly clean, comprehensively equipped and provisioned."

    In a quiet location just under a mile from the town - an easy walk in good weather or use the Recreation Ground car park off Swans Nest Lane and cross the river on the old tramway pedestrian bridge. The cottage was beautifully decorated for Christmas, including a Christmas tree. It would be an ideal place to stay in warmer weather, too, with an enclosed patio and hot tub. The property owners provided very useful detailed information on local attractions almost immediately after we had booked

    Hi Susan, thank you so much for the positive feedback it is great to hear you had such a good time at Globe Cottage! my wife arranged the decorations to make sure you felt 'Christmassy' while staying with us! All the best, Dean Property Owner

  • "The cottage was beautiful everything we needed was provided, only downfall was the bathroom with rolltop bath which was beautiful my mum and aunti aged 79, and 80 years found it really hard to get in and out of the bath to shower we had to help them in and out."

    The cottage is suitable for 4 adults and 2 children not 6 adults as the sofa bed was fine but not practicle for a week for 2 adults. Overall the cottage is in a great location neat to all the local attractions and the river cruises. We loved our stay and so did my mum and family. Thank you Dean

    Hi Prafula. sorry for the delay in responding. Thanks for the detailed feedback. We agreed that 6 guests was too much for the property and we actually amended this with Sykes to limit it to 4 people or 4 with a child/infant. I can also imagine with family at the ages you stated that using the winding staircase etc could be tricky. We will also consider the bath comments in the future but for now families with young children seem to benefit from a bathtub overall. Thanks again and we hope you and your family are all well. All the best, Dean Property Owner

The property

Resting in the center of the picturesque town centre of Stratford-Upon-Avon, Warwickshire is Globe Cottage, a well-presented detached house offering off-road parking and a toasty woodburning stove.

Suitable for a small family or group of friends, the cottage is conveniently located within easy reach to local amenities and the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, while offering a tasteful décor and all the amenities you may need throughout your stay.

Arriving at the property, two off-road parking spaces greet you, with a electrical car charging station, before stepping into the spacious hallway where you can drop off your coats and shoes.

Moving through the property, the sitting room invites you in to cosy up in front of the woodburning stove with your loved ones while you watch a film on the Smart TV after a long day of discovering the local area, for extra flexibility the sofa does pull out into a bed.

From here, head to the kitchen and whip up delicious meals for your group; here you will find an electric oven and gas hob, a large fridge/freezer and a dishwasher, providing all the necessities for your self-catering requirements.

Completing the ground floor is a handy cloakroom and a dining room where you can enjoy your meals at the dining table as a family.

For a relaxing evening tuck up in the reading corner under the stairs filled with the Works of Shakespeare for a relaxed evening and as the night rolls in, head upstairs to the bedrooms for some well-deserved rest ahead of another adventurous day.

The first bedroom is home to a plush double bed and a sloping ceiling with views across the countryside, as well as storage for you to unpack your belongings.

The second bedroom is home to two single sleigh beds as well as storage for your belongings and the characterful sloping ceilings, perfect for children or two friends sharing.

Guests will also benefit from a family bathroom with a gorgeous roll-top bath you can look forward to soaking your muscles in, along with a shower over, a basin and a WC.

Back on the ground floor, spend your evenings in the courtyard; relax and unwind in the hot tub, gazing up at the stars as the evening grows darker.

Savour a glass of wine at the dining table while the chef of the group rustles up a feast on the gas and charcoal barbecue before enjoying your meal al fresco, in the last of the summer sun.

On your doorstep and just a 5 minute walk is the town centre of Stratford-upon-Avon is steeped in history and home to a wealth of attractions such as Anne Hathaway's Cottage and The Swan Theatre and The Royal Shakespeare Theatre, a renowned theatre group offering the finest Shakespeare production in the country.

Spend an afternoon at Stratford Butterfly Farm, the UK's largest butterfly habitat, home to an array of stunning creatures.

If you are travelling with younger members of the group, take a trip to The MAD Museum, a truly unique experience of kinetic art, gadgets and gizmos, designed with children in mind but fun for all the family!

History buffs will enjoy Tudor World, an award-winning living history museum set within a Grade II listed building.

Further afield you can visit the Cotswolds AONB and spend the day exploring the picture-perfect towns and villages before stopping for a spot of lunch and heading back to the cottage.

If you don't fancy cooking one evening there are plenty of local eateries; Bistrot Pierre offers a chic French cuisine, and the Plantarium Café offers a delightful vegan menu, this along with many other restaurants, pubs and cafés will leave you spoilt for choice.

Bring your friends and family to Globe Cottage for a memorable holiday to Warwickshire.
