Stratford-upon-Avon Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Luxury cottage with garden, parking and Wi-Fi in Stratford-upon-Avon's Old Town.

Heritage Mews is a beautifully appointed holiday home with Visit England 5 Stars and Gold Award for 'exceptional quality of accommodation and customer service'.

It is in an excellent peaceful location in Stratford-upon-Avon's Old Town, just a few minutes' walk to the town centre, restaurants, Shakespeare Houses and Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Close to Holy Trinity Church and the River Avon, you can enjoy delightful riverside walks into town or out into adjacent countryside.

The cottage is personally managed by the owners, ensuring the highest standards of quality and cleanliness. There is Wi-Fi and private parking for two cars - a real benefit in Stratford town centre. Downstairs is a well-equipped kitchen and comfortable sitting-dining room opening onto an attractive private courtyard garden - perfect for summer outdoor dining and a delight in all seasons. Upstairs is a bathroom and two elegant bedrooms, a queen-size double and a single, both with luxurious Egyptian cotton linen.

Heritage Mews is perfectly situated to enjoy a holiday in Stratford-upon-Avon. The historic town centre with its beautiful architecture and unique atmosphere is just a short stroll away. Visit nearby Holy Trinity Church (you can see the spire from the cottage), one of Britain's most beautiful parish churches on the banks of the River Avon, and see Shakespeare's grave - two or three minutes' walk from the cottage. From here there is a delightful riverside walk to the town centre, the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Bancroft Gardens. Or walk into town along Old Town past Hall's Croft, Shakespeare's daughter's home, and down Church Street with its half-timbered buildings. Enjoy Stratford's excellent shopping, with galleries, antique centres and interesting independent shops as well as well-known high street stores. Relax with an Italian coffee on the waterfront at Cox's Yard. Cross the river on an old pedestrian chain ferry, the last of its kind in Britain. Walk across the Old Tramway Bridge and visit the Butterfly Farm. Take a fun City Sightseeing bus tour, which includes Anne Hathaway's Cottage in Shottery and Mary Arden's Farm in Wilmcote. Watch the world go by with champagne or a meal on the all-weather terrace at the Waterside Brasserie or take in the atmosphere at the Dirty Duck inn with a terrace overlooking the river.

Stratford-upon-Avon offers a fantastic choice of places to eat out - award-winning restaurants, bistros, pubs, cafes, coffees shops and traditional tea rooms. Many have gardens or terraces or overlook the river. Guests staying at Heritage Mews can use our complimentary 'GASTRO CARD', saving money when eating out at many of Stratford's top restaurants and pubs. Go online and check out the special offers and discounts at participating restaurants in Stratford-upon-Avon and the surrounding area and mention the Gastro Card when you book. These are just some of the participating restaurants: in Stratford-upon-Avon - Edward Moon's, No 9 Church Street, Marlowe's, No 1 Shakespeare Street, Sorrento, Othello's, Essence, The Alveston Manor Restaurant and Benson's Restaurant and Tea Room. In Warwickshire and the Cotswolds - award winning The Howard Arms at Ilmington and The Bell at Alderminster; The Fox & Goose Country Inn at Armscote; Kings Arms at Mickleton; The Curry Republic in Henley in Arden; The Granville at Barford and many more in Birmingham, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Oxfordshire. You will find more details and a Gastro Card link on our website.

5 STAR SHORT BREAKS: Heritage Mews is perfect for an out of season break. With fully controllable central heating, double glazing and luxurious carpets, the cottage is warm and welcoming whatever the weather.

PRIVATE OFF-ROAD PARKING FOR TWO CARS: Heritage Mews has two private off-road parking spaces - a real benefit in Stratford-upon-Avon where parking on the narrow streets is restricted and often in high demand. One parking space is through the gate at the end of the garden - convenient for unloading your car. The second space is in an adjacent courtyard. Enjoy the convenience of parking your cars safely within the private mews and explore this beautiful historic town on foot. All the famous sites and attractions, shops and restaurants are a short stroll away.

EXTENDED PARKING: Make the most of your holiday with our extended parking. Guests who would like to arrive early in Stratford to spend time in town can park one car at Heritage Mews from 10.30am on arrival day and check in later after 3pm. On departure day, having vacated by 10am, you can park one car until 2.30pm. Extended parking is subject to availability. Please request in advance.

The perfect holiday rental - we found it hard to believe that we were not the first ever to stay there as everything was so immaculate and seemed brand new. Val & Simon have thought of everything from the welcome pack down to the fresh flowers.
The small kitchen has everything you will ever need.
From the ad I was drawn to the little garden & this was a delight, we were amused to watch the daily antics of a pair of robins,building their nest.
The property has two parking spaces and is an easy 10 min stroll into town, either along the street or along the riverside.
A perfectly situated property for exploring the area & highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such wonderful comments. We are delighted you enjoyed our place and the spring garden too – makes what we do all the more enjoyable. There’s always a variety of birds visiting the garden but this is the first year robins have nested – how interesting. We will soon be planting summer pots and geraniums so will take care not to disturb them! Many thanks again for writing such a great review.

Top quality accommodation in a great location

  • 5 of 5
This property is in a good quiet location just 10 minutes walk from the town centre and ideal for our trips to the theatre. We had a nice sunny week so were able to enjoy the lovely rear courtyard garden full of pretty flowers. The accommodation was comfortable, spotlessly clean and very well provided for with top quality equipment and appliances. It is within easy reach of the main attractions and there are several good walks out along the river.. Val and Simon were extremely helpful with advice about the area. All in all a great base for exploring Stratford upon Avon and the surrounding area. .

Our second visit to one of the best presented and comfortable self catering homes we have visited. Everything you could need is here and the close proximate to the Theatre, riverside walks and all the eating places in Stratford makes for an idyllic stay. Thanks to Val and Simon for their hospitality at a price we find very satisfactory for facilities of this nature.

Lovely cottage, peaceful yet central location

  • 5 of 5
A well equipped cottage, ideal for exploring Stratford and the surrounding area. The property is well maintained, spotlessly clean, comfortable with a delightful, colourful courtyard garden. Although very close to the town centre, the location is extremely quiet. The owners, Val and Simon, were there to welcome us and show us around, explaining how everything worked. We were left some extra goodies and a few necessaries to start us off. We couldn't have asked for more, and will certainly return in the future.

Perfect holiday home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5
We found everything about Heritage Mews to be simply first class. The property is located in Old Town, within easy walking distance of the centre of Stratford Upon Avon. Very well maintained, exceptionally clean and with a pretty courtyard garden for al fresco dining on warm summer evenings. The benefit of off-road parking so close to the town centre is an added bonus. The owners, Val & Simon, have the customer service balance just right, being friendly and welcoming, with help and advice if required but otherwise leave you to get on and enjoy your stay at their beautiful home from home.

A PERFECT HOME FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
We found Heritage the perfect base for a holiday in Stratford upon Avon.

We have stayed in many holiday homes but this is certainly one of the best. Val and Simon have equipped it with everything one would ever need both as far as the kitchen is concerned and all other amenities. The house is warm and comfortable as is the bed! All equipment and linen is of the highest quality.

The location is spot on for accessing Stratford and the surrounding (beautiful) countryside and we didn't use the car at all. The local pub is first rate.

Finally, we have never seen such a colourful small garden in February.

All round a first class property.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review and for your great comments. We’re delighted you liked our place and the location - ideal for both town and countryside walks, as well as our local pub, The New Bulls Head! The spring bulbs are coming out in the garden now too, adding to the colour. Hope to see you again soon!
