About Michael Kroeger

Holly Hogan, the owner, lives in Johannesburg at present with my husband, Gordon and two adult children who are completing their University degrees.

Michael Kroeger purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Michael Kroeger chose Stratford-upon-Avon

My sister lives in Stratford-upon-Avon so we decided to purchase a property nearby. We also love this part of England and enjoy the proximity to Birmingham airport for easy air travel.

What makes this cottage unique

10-15 min walk into Stratford town centre which has super shops, restaurants, cinema and most important the theatres.

We love the historical importance of this lovely town and the beautiful River Avon.

We loved Holly House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Holly House. The cottage is furnished in a very welcoming way; we felt like we were staying in someone's special getaway home. The kitchen is completely outfitted for making meals and the bedrooms were comfortable. The bathroom upstairs was updated; the 1/2 bathroom downstairs was fine as well. We found the house very clean. The house has a back garden. It was an easy 10 minute walk to the restaurants and theatre. We would definitely recommend this cottage to our friends.

Charming and Close to Town

  • 5 of 5

My sister-in-law and I stayed at Holly House for six days in September and had a glorious time. The cottage is well equipped and just delightfully charming. The beds are comfortable and we were cozy sitting by the fire on a couple of rainy evenings. The cottage is a short 10 minute walk from all the shops, restaurants and the RSC. We rented a car for three days - a 15-20 minute walk to Hertz at the train station- and found that the cottage is well situated on the south side of town which meant we didn't have to drive through town to start our day touring the Cotswolds. Holly was responsive to questions and requests. We would stay again anytime we have the opportunity. Thanks, Holly!
