Charming Grade II Listed Residence In Shipston On Stour, Perfect For Exploring Stratford Upon Avon, The Cotswolds and Central England
Sleeps 8 (max 7 adults + 1 child)
The Corner House is a charming Grade II listed four-bedroom period property in the centre of Shipston on Stour, dating back to the early 19th Century. It has been renovated to a high standard and is beautifully decorated throughout. The house has 3 floors and its layout is perfect for couples, families or groups. On the ground floor there is an elegant family dining room with wooden floor and period features. Opposite is a relaxing and cosy lounge with sumptuous velvet sofas and 32inch television with built in DVD. A large fully equipped kitchen with informal dining area is situated to the rear of the property with a shower room and toilet leading off. A handy utility room leads to a small sunny courtyard with table and chairs. On the 1st floor there is a large luxurious family bathroom with a bath and walk in shower. Bedroom 1 is a romantic large double-bedded room with dual aspect windows. Bedroom 2 is an elegant twin bedded room furnished with period pieces. Bedroom 3 is of smaller proportions and furnished with a pretty, single daybed with pull out trundle beneath. The optional pull out trundle is suitable for a child (see image gallery) due to its smaller proportions (standard length, small single width) . On the 2nd floor there is a large (height restricted in places) open plan attic with a double bed and seating area and luxury wash facilities. It has pleasant dual aspect views of the church tower and roofscape towards the Cotswold countryside. The spacious room has an elegant slipper bath and hand basin (note no wc). The house was built around 1820, and typical of a property of this period it has many quirky features including some height restricted ceilings and doors. Many original features have been retained and the house provides a truly exceptional base for a short break or longer stay.

Family friendly elegant home
A beautiful, elegant Georgian house with charming period features. In a great location and really easy to park right by the property. All 3 generations of our family lover the house and attention to detail. It was especially convenient being right in the heart of the town with just a short walk to local shops and restaurants. By far the nicest holiday home we have stayed in, we've already booked to return. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Luxury property, beautifully presented with attention to every small detail. Everything you could possibly need during your stay is provided. Excellent location.
Beautiful home in a fantastic setting!
As a group of 6 mid-30s girls, we had the most wonderful stay at The Corner House. Great local pubs to while away an afternoon, lots of places to go for a walk and some fresh air, and all the amenities in the house you could possibly hope for. Could not have picked a better place to stay. Thank you xxx

Very well appointed and clean . Wonderful stay for large families
A wonderful home in the Cotswolds
Recently we stayed as we were getting married in the area. Julie could not have done more to make our stay special. Upon arrival, there were little wedding decorations dotted around the place with a wonderful welcome basket too.
Everyone who stayed had a wonderful time and we would certainly return.
Communication with Julie is brilliant and she couldn't have done more for us. Do not hesitate to book.
