This was a beautiful cottage in lovely surroundings. We did have a problem with the heating but the owner very quickly sorted it out

Winters Tale cottage was in a prime location. You can walk into Stratford & Anne Hathaways cottage was just down the road. Certainly the cottage is not for any one with mobility problems. Stairs were steep & with bathroom downstairs it could be a problem at night !! The garden is pretty & cottage has everything you need.

very well equipped cottage.Clean and tidy with comfortable bedding. Pleasant conservatory overlooking garden. Great for dining and board games. Good location with a very pleasant circular walk starting opposite the cottage car park and finally passing The Bell pub for a pint before ending up back at the cottage.

Lovely little cottage in a perfect location for exploring. Everything we needed was there and the hosts had put a lot of thought into what guests might need.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting. Easy access to Stratford.

Reviewed by Teresa 12th October 2018

Homely, atmospheric, beautiful and cosy. Everything one would want from a thatched cottage. The light flickering from the fireplace even when the heat wasnt on. It made the lounge look beautiful. Pretty from the outside when sitting in the garden having drinks. Beds were so warm and cosy. Great location to travel to different places.

Lovely quaint cottage in beautiful surroundings and lovely garden which is a sun trap. Very well equipped and comfortable with everything we needed for our weekend stay. A few bumped heads on the low beams, so may not suit those who are particularly tall but youd expect this in a period property. Stratford was a stones throw away and a lovely town Read moreto wander round. Local pub good and only a 5-10 minute walk. Would definitely return. Hide

A lovely thatched cottage in a quiet hamlet. Very comfortable, homely, and very well equipped. Loved the Conservatory, where we sat to have meals, overlooking the garden. A quiet garden, with a lovely sitting area.
