Notes:
The cottage is in a very private Hamlet and was once a farm and workhouse. It is convenient for Stratford Upon Avon either by a mile walk in many directions, or by bus ( you can pick up the open topped bus at Anne Hathaways Cottage some 300 yards along the road) or by Taxi at on average £4:50 one way. There is ample parking in Stratford too. From then cottage you access many beautiful Towns and The Cotswolds easily . The NEC is also about a 25 minute drive away and very convenient for shows such as Crufts . The cottage itself is ideal for coming back form a tiring day site seeing or for a comfortable base to just relaxe or maybe meet up with family ane friends. The Royal Shakespeare Company are based in town and offer many attractions as well as performances all year. We also cater for visiting Cast and Crew for the RSC, so this may be idle for you if you too need a place to stay whilst working locally for up to 6 months. Please ask and we will help you enjoy your stay.

Beautiful restoration and renovation of this cottage

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing surprise this cottage has been! The pictures don't do it justice. Totally authentic but absolutely modern. One neighbor had amazing pre-renovation pictures, putting to rest our companion's claim that this was newly created. Our stay was flawless and thoroughly enjoyed!

Great cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at midsummer cottage, every need had been catered for and a lovely enclosed garden for our 2 dogs. Only a mile from Stratford town centre where you can get a nice meal and a drink in one of its many pubs. I would recommend a stay in this lovely cottage .

Great location away from the hustle and bustle

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay at the cottage in early September. The building is in a very pretty, historic village called Shottery... about a 25 minute walk into Stratford town centre. The cottage has all the comforts of home but I would offer one warning: The beams are VERY low and both of us hit our heads on them on a daily basis. Apart from that our stay was perfect.

Gorgeous, ancient cottage with modern amenities

  • 5 of 5

We loved this gorgeous, truly historic cottage in such a pleasant, quiet hamlet right across the road from Anne Hathaway's cottage. It was the perfect place to spend the weekend catching up with old school friends. We loved the pretty, private garden and the bedrooms tucked up under the eaves ( watch your head if you are over 5' 5"!!). Really nice not to have to wash and cook 17th century-style though! The kitchen had everything we needed to produce a number of fabulous feasts and the WIFI came in handy as we had left our families at home! The cottage was clean, tidy and welcoming and when we had a slight issue with access, the owner sorted it right out immediately!

Would definitely recommend staying here, whether you want a base to explore Stratford, or just a quiet, comfortable space in which to sit and read.

Wonderfull authentic cottage experience

  • 5 of 5

After living in Canada most of their lives, our children were impressed by being able to live and sleep in a house that is much older than the oldest building in Canada. The cottage is truly historic and authentic, but in an excellent and clean state, and with todays comfort of a fully equipped kitchen, wifi and bath. It is big enough for a family of four and a dog. The cottage is "dog-friendly" and the enclosed garden was a nice feature for our little friend.

For tall people; just watch your head, as the historic wooden beams are sometimes low!

The cottage is just a 5 minute walk from Anna Hathaway’s cottage.

The centre is about 30minutes walk, or a short drive with plenty of parking.

Our tip is to rent your own (motor)boat for an hour on the Avon with Avon Boating, and do your own cruise! Just need to be lucky with the weather.
