“This property is in an excellent location for the town - the back garden of Shakespeare's birthplace is at the end of the street.”
5 minutes walk and you are in the centre of town. The cottage was very comfortable and newly refurbished. The beds were lovely and the shower was excellent with luxurious fluffy towels. A couple of things lacking in the equipment (e.g. 3 veg peelers but no scissors, no teapot (but that could be just be us not liking it made in a cup !!)) and I had to clean the grill pan before using it. Parking is not easy and restrictions confusing - we parked a street away opposite a sign saying permit ...
5 minutes walk and you are in the centre of town. The cottage was very comfortable and newly refurbished. The beds were lovely and the shower was excellent with luxurious fluffy towels. A couple of things lacking in the equipment (e.g. 3 veg peelers but no scissors, no teapot (but that could be just be us not liking it made in a cup !!)) and I had to clean the grill pan before using it. Parking is not easy and restrictions confusing - we parked a street away opposite a sign saying permit holders OK but it only applied to a section of 'our' side of the road and we got a ticket. Not a great welcome to Stratford - Beware. We can recommend the HOHO bus - not cheap but it is for 24 hours and the route goes to all the Shakespeare sites. You can buy a combined ticket (bus + entry) depending on how many sites you want to visit. We also enjoyed the Butterfly Farm, a river trip and Tudor World "experience" - different and very interesting.
“This cottage was not clean on entrance.”
Dirty appliances in the kitchen and cobwebs upstairs. We had to go out and buy some antibacterial spray. There was a pair of white socks underneath our bed in plain site that were not ours. At one point we experienced an electricity problem and my husband called the gentleman owner, no answer so he left a voicemail, we didn’t ever receive a call back. During our stay we came back to find that a cleaner had been in the property and changed towels/bedlinen etc. This would have been fine with any kind of notice, there was no notification that anyone would visit and we were uncomfortable to think that someone had entered with all our Xmas valuables and possessions around. The hot tap in the bathroom was scalding hot - not safe for our children. The single glazing meant that the bedroom in particular was very noisy in bad weather. Overall we were unimpressed, the brilliant location was the only big positive about staying in this cottage.
“The only disappointing thing was the lack of logs for the log burner.”
Also some information on where to buy them would have been helpful.other than that excellent.
“Superb location, cosy, comfortable stay.”
We enjoyed a wonderful week in Stratford based in Primrose Cottage which is located really centrally within a 5 minute walk of the town centre and Shakespeare's birth place. The town centre can also be accessed via a very pleasant walk along the canal path. The parking permit ensured we were always able to park within a short walk of the property. The property was extremely well equipped (a variety of board games and DVDs proved to be a real hit with the kids!) with fresh, clean bed linen and towels provided. The downstairs bathroom was a decent family size with a shower over the bath (great water pressure too!). Washing machine, washing line, iron and ironing board also provided which was very convenient. Overall, a very enjoyable stay in a superb location!
“Lovely, cosy cottage in a great location”
Had a lovely week, amazing location so near the town. Cottage was lovely & Cosy, with everything provided you could possibly need for a lovely week. Would come again.
“Excellent location and comfortable cottage”
This cottage is an easy, flat and (apparently) safe walk away from the restaurants, attractions and shops of Stratford. There is a parking permit provided which allows on street parking, though sometimes this could only be found a few streets away. The property is clean and comfortable - at first I was worried that the twin beds looked lilke camp beds, but the mattresses were comfortable. Lovely bath sheets were provided, unlike at some other properties, where towels can be tiny. There is a small but inviting garden with a table and chairs. Points to note are that the stairs are very steep and that the shower is accessible only by climbing into the bath.
“Excellent location within easy, flat walk of several restaurants and attractions, including the theatre.”
Parking permit provided, which is very useful - but be prepared to park a few streets away from the house. Peaceful garden with a small table and chairs.
“Perfect location, fabulous cottage!”
The location of the cottage could not be better, just a short stroll and you are in the centre of Stratford. You will find a a parking permit in the cottage for the street parking right outside the door. The cottage itself is lovely, it even has a wood burning stove made up just ready to light! The kitchen has everything you need and the cottage has a lovely sitting area outside where you could enjoy a glass of wine in the summer months. The beds are nice and comfy with crisp white bedding and for a cottage not bad size rooms! We found the cottage very homely and loved Stratford and all it has to offer. We can't wait to return in the summer! The owners sent over to us all the information regarding the cottage before we arrived with was versy helpful.
“Fabulous cottage great location”
This fabulous cottage was full of character and was located just a short walk from the town centre, restaurants and pubs. The cottage was clean and provided fresh towels and bedding, the beds were really comfortable. The lounge had a log burner which was really cosy on the cold December evenings. I will certainly be returning to experience this delightful accommodation in the summer.
“Good location, lovely cottage”
The location of the cottage was superb. So close to the town centre. We had parking permits, so didn't have to worry about parking. The kitchen and lounge areas were fabulous, fully equipped and very spacious. The grill kept tripping the power, so that could do with getting fixed. Slight issue with the key on arrival, as it wasn't left in the key box for us. Luckily the owner's son lived nearby so this was quickly rectified. Not the owners fault. The bathroom was tired and the bathroom door wouldn't lock. The two bedrooms upstairs were ok, however the beds were so uncomfortable and the bedding and pillows were so flimsy, these could do with being replaced. I would definitely stay here again, if some new mattresses and new bedding was sorted.
