  • "We stayed from 6/8/22 for a week, Anne and Stewart were very welcoming and attentive without being intrusive."

    We were greeted with welcome gifts. Everything was there to make it a home from home. We really enjoyed our stay and will be looking into staying again next summer.

  • "This is a lovely and well-maintained property, providing a comfortable base for your stay."

    It has all the amenities that you would expect and some additional ones. The hot tub was very welcome after a day's sightseeing; it was sparklingly clean and is checked twice daily by the owners as well as being emptied and cleaned after each guest. The downstairs shower is a long walk-in one, and both are very powerful with consistent temperatures. The garden is huge, not something you normally get, and there is sun all day long, outside the downstairs bedroom from first thing and round the side in the evening. Listen out for the rook display each evening! As previous reviews have said, the owners (and dog) are lovely and very friendly, but not intrusive. The welcome cake and prosecco were a very nice touch. All in all a lovely stay. We will be back when next in this area.

    Lovely welcome pack of cake and bubbles. Everything supplied... Super king bed very spacious. Location fantastic. Red Hart pub ten minutes walk away, Sunday lunch excellent and very good value, second meal one evening also very good, steak cooked to perfection. Added bonus of airshow nearby, sitting in the hot tub watching hot air balloons and the red arrows.

  • "We had a lovely stay, beds were really comfortable, cosy lounge quirky fittings everywhere was very nice, gardens well kept."

    Plenty of places to visit not too far to travel. Little things could be improved, mirror in 2nd bedroom was small and the mirror in the bathroom of main bedroom too high to see yourself but there is a full length mirror in the bedroom, a few more items for use when cooking would have been handy, we were 3 adults to cook for. Overall a lovely place to stay.

    We are really pleased you had a lovely stay at Buttercups. Thank you for your kind comments and suggestions, which we have noted. At Buttercups we work hard to ensure that our guests have everything they need for a comfortable, relaxing and safe stay and we provide towels, laundry, dishwashing and cleaning products and a range of kitchen equipment to meet the varying needs of our guests. If our guests do require specific, additional items we are onsite and are happy to do everything we can to meet these requests immediately. Kind regards, Anne and Stewart Property Owner

  • "Anne & Stewart have made this cottage a most wonderful place to stay."

    They did everything they could to make our holiday perfect. Cake and bubbly, milk, coffee & tea for us on arrival and they even had the place ready early for us as the previous occupants had left before time. Lovely decor throughout, very spacious and everything we needed for our break away, including booklets of local places of interest, walks and eateries. With 3 pubs within walking distance and lots of fabulous places to visit within a short drive the cottage is perfectly placed. A shame we could only stay 4 nights as there was so much more to see. The icing on the cake here is the beautifully large garden and hot tub to view the stars at night and to watch the rabbits and sheep in the daytime. You certainly can’t top having a Tardis too. Highly recommended.

  • "We had a lovely short stay at Buttercups."

    The accommodation was very spacious, with plenty of room for 4 adults and the owners were very friendly and helpful. The provisions of milk, wine and a lovely Victoria sponge was very much appreciated and a generous touch - so thank you for that. It is a great location to explore the surrounding areas - Evesham and Stratford on Avon are within easy reach. We would definitely recommend Buttercups to anyone looking to stay in this area and if we are staying in the area again, would stay here without hesitation.

    It far exceeded our expectations. It was an ideal location, set in the owners fabulous garden but private nonetheless due to its orientation. Ann and Stewart were very welcoming, but left us to enjoy our holiday. It was perfect for the mother in law who enjoyed the grand downstairs suite. The welcome basket was very nice and unexpected. Overall a fabulous place which we would highly recommend and would return to.

  • "Myself, My partner and our 2 children (17and 8) Had an absolutely fantastic stay here."

    Such a lovely cottage made even better with the huge garden and hot tub and lots of home comforts. The girls especially loved that the WiFi was super fast. We definitely picked the best week to come as temperatures were in the late 20’s to 30’s every day. There were lots of things to do close by such as Cadbury’s World, Drayton Manor theme Park and also the Black Country museum which was almost like being in Peaky Blinders. It was lovely to relax in the garden in the evenings and just totally chill out. I would like to mention aswell how fantastic the hosts were in helping us out when we had some car trouble. Their kindness and generosity was second to none and will not be forgotten. We will most definitely be back and hopefully sooner rather than later.

    ! We loved our stay.. the cottage was lovely, had everything we needed for a family of 3 with our young son including high chair, travel cot, stair gate and even toys & books! Really nice touch :) we were greeted with the most amazing chocolate cake when we arrived!! Owners live on site which is not a problem at all, we only saw them at the beginning of our stay when we arrived & then a few times when we contacted them as we needed assistance. Hot tub is a really nice added touch and we enjoyed even in the rain!! The garden was HUGE and amazing for our son, we loved pottering around and the fields near the cottage. Lots of things to do in and around the area for us, we honestly had such an incredible week. Booked fairly last minute and we would definitely visit again.

    Our daughter is disabled and apart from needing a downstairs bathroom and bedroom we never know if things will be suitable. The best thing about the accommodation is it's size. The kitchen/diner is large and so is the downstairs bedroom and bathroom. The gardens are lovely, beautiful orchard and the farmer's field behind the annexe full of entertaining sheep. We were able to access the hot tub and enjoy the wonderful surroundings. Brilliant.

    From the moment we arrived it was perfect. The owners, Anne and Stewart had left us scones with Jam and cream and a selection of tea and coffee and milk which was a lovely touch. They live in the house next door but they respect your privacy.....however they are there for you should you need anything (like a last minute paddle boarding booking!). Buttercups is a beautiful, pristine holiday home, everything appeared to be brand new and it had everything you could need in a holiday home. The gardens are lovely and there was plenty of space to play boules or have a kick about. The hot tub was an added bonus and was used frequently by us after long walks, bike rides or activities on the nearby lakes. Buttercups is in a very peaceful location (2 lovely pubs within walking distance) but is very central if you want to get out and about like we did. We thoroughly enjoyed our week here and I have no doubt we will return. Thanks to Anne and Stewart for a great week in Buttercups.
