Traditional thatched cottage enjoying a peaceful location within a small hamlet, just a short distance from the centre of Stratford upon Avon.

A fairy-tale thatched cottage in the Cotswolds, your whole family is welcome to spend a holiday to remember here. And, as no holiday is ever complete without all the pack, your four-footed friend is invited, too. Sleeping four people and your dog, this property near Stratford-upon-Avon boasts comfort, style and a brilliant location. Relax, head to the town centre or venture further afield to uncover the secrets of the Cotswolds; the choice is yours.

Located within an historical hamlet, this picture-postcard cottage is charming to its core. Sleeping four people across two bedrooms (one double and one twin), it is ideally-sized for families with young children. Offering plenty of nooks and spaces to find a quiet, cosy corner or come together over a board game, everyone can chat or relax as much as they please. Your dog will love snoozing in the warm sunroom, lapping up the sun and a tasty chew. Or perhaps he’ll prefer some tummy rubs in the lounge as you unwind after a day’s exploring. For the foodies among you, the well-equipped kitchen boasts traditional beams and plenty of amenities for cooking up a delicious repast. Tuck into meals around the dining table or head outside to the patio for some al fresco fine-dining in the private, enclosed garden.

With Stratford-upon-Avon’s centre just 1.5 miles away, you can enjoy a whole range of shops, pubs and eateries. Head to a dog-friendly café for a hot drink and slice of something sweet. Then pay a visit to Anne Hathaway’s (the wife of William Shakespeare) cottage, where dogs are welcome on leads. You can even visit the birthplace of Shakespeare himself with your dog. Here, you can learn lots of fascinating information and let your dogs explore the fragrant gardens.

Well located pretty cottage but needs attention to detail.

This was a lovely cottage full of character. Everything you could think of was provided with some lovely welcome touches. We stayed in November & it was so cosy a perfect winters retreat. The lounge was very comfortable and the conservatory attached a great space for playing games when the weather was bad. The kitchen was very well designed & greatRead more to cook in - well thought out for a cottage kitchen. Lovely garden too. Hide

This house is exactly as described. It was well equipped and spotlessly clean. The owner (Jill) responded immediately to one query which was reassuring. It is what you would expect from a house this age with low doorways and steep stairs. The small conservatory overlooking a pretty, well maintained garden is a bonus.

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

Reviewed by Gillian 3rd May 2019

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.
