A Delightful Private Space

  • 5 of 5

Fernleigh Coach House is pure delight! It is located in the back of the owner's property with its own garden patio. Matt and Karin were the ultimate hosts, giving us great recommendations for restaurants, hiking paths and nearby historic places of interest. As we were totally reliant on public transportation, the bus stop across the street was a great advantage. We both enjoy walking so the trek into Stratford-upon-Avon was a 30-minute stroll past attractive buildings and gardens. We did take the water taxi from the caravan park, just to see the other side of these large homes. Fernleigh is a well-appointed home, compact with every amenity. It was cozy, comfortable and just enough space for the two of us. We did not use the oven but the cooker top worked well and the kitchen utensils/pots/pans were in good shape. The wifi worked well as did the TV, washing machine and dishwasher. We enjoyed the quiet location, away from the sometimes heaving Stratford-upon-Avon, but appreciated the proximity when needing a Shakespeare fix. The restaurants were close by and all were wonderful: Indian, Chinese and the pub just exceptional. A real treat was the Knead It bakery, fortunately for our waistlines, opened only 2 days a week. It was located a couple blocks from Fernleigh. Matt and Karin were always accessible but allowed plenty of privacy. It is a place we would love to return to should we ever return to this part of the world

Absolutely charming and wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful little coach house finished beautifully with everything you could possible need! And in a great location for exploring Stratford and the surrounding area. Charming decor and a great bed and bedding! I simply can't say enough about the quality of this little holiday let. Definitely built for one or two people...very cosy and a wonderful little kitchen area. Great Indian restaurant right across the street and a Spar half a block away. Karin and Matt could not have been more gracious or accommodating. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!!

Excellent accommodation. Highly Reccommended.

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week in this excellent accommodation. We were welcomed by Karin and Matt who gave us all the information regarding the coach house and also what to see and do in the area. The house was spotlessly clean, warm and very comfortable. It has a very well equipped kitchen, comfortable settee and bed and also a selection of books and dvd's. There are buses through the village to Stratford, Warwick and Leamington Spa and Stratford is only a short walk away.

Thank you Karin and Matt!

It has it all.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and very tasteful accommodation in a peaceful and private setting. A great selection of places to eat only a stroll away. A Spar shop that stocks just about everything, a local bakery and all this with out venturing out of Tiddington. Stunning Stratford is either a short walk, a bus ride or a water taxi. The location make this property an ideal base for Stratford and surrounding areas. We will definitely return and not hesitate to recommend.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Karin and Matt have put a lot of effort into making the Coach House a very well-appointed place to spend a relaxing week. Being so close to facilities was so handy, yet you are tucked away in your own peaceful little niche with a lovely garden to sit and look at. We enjoyed the Indian restaurant and used the Spar shop every day. Tiddington is the ideal place from which to explore the local area, and we would recommend the Coach House as a very comfortable place to stay.

Karin and Matt were the ideal hosts, never intruding, but we felt they were there if we needed local advice or information.

First class .

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with this lovely coach house ,Have had the best time visiting national trust houses and gardens ,walks all around Stratford Upon Avon ,Warwick races, so much to do and see. To come back to relax in such a comfortable home and not have to cook as eating out in the pub or Indian and Chinese restaurants all within a few minutes walk away was a big plus , Karin and Mathew were so welcoming and made our holiday very relaxing . We hope to go back again some day . A truly lovely place to stay ,
