This property is ideally located to visit Shakespeare's town and all the historic houses associated with that time.

WOW! One block from the primary tourist streets and finished to a very high standard

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous find! Lisa provides a parking pass - essential in this area if you have a car - and has finished the cottage to a very high standard. The two bedrooms and family bath have skylights and this is the only building on the street with a bow window in the lounge/living room, so the entire place is full of light. BTW, the family bath is huge and the claw foot tub was a dream.

Beds have been very carefully selected (so no bad back issues), the kitchen contains up-to-date appliances (including a huge refrigerator/freezer, a dishwasher, and a clothes washer) and is a joy to cook in. I would particularly mention that, unlike many places, this kitchen is fully supplied - a wide variety of pots and pans, serving and cooking utensils, etc. It actually looks as if someone lives here. A very pleasant surprise when compared with some places that have 2 spoons and 3 pans. The only warning is to be careful of the towel warmer in the en suite bathroom - it's a wee bit close to the loo! :-)

Wifi was reliable and fast - we rely on it for business, so this was much appreciated. If the weather isn't good, there are books, DVDs, and puzzles (AND a scrabble game and dictionary!).

It is actually just behind Shakespeare's birthplace, so a one block walk to the pedestrian area (and all the touristy shops) and a short walk to the theatre. Tons of good food in the area - including a very nice pub just up the street. We can recommend Ideal Taxi as well - we were a bit footsore after a long day and they picked us up on time, took us to the theatre, and met us after to take us home - and didn't complain a bit about the short distance/little fare.

We do flats/apartments on most of our vacations and this was absolutely one of the best. We can recommend it unreservedly and plan to return.

Perfect flat!

  • 5 of 5

Don't let the pedestrian photos dissuade you from booking this terrific flat. It was perfect in every way. Spacious, clean and filled with hospitable touches made for a wonderful experience. The flat contains extremely comfortable beds, entirely functional and updated bathrooms and kitchen, and a comfortable carpeted living room. And it's pretty much across the street from the center of town. Lisa was a lovely host, who ran right over to fix an extremely minor television issue within moments of being contacted. With a toddler, not every property is ideal for us, but I cannot recommend this place strongly enough.

Lovely apartment....

  • 5 of 5

... only a stone's throw away from Shakespeare's birthplace.

We couldn't have asked for a better located place to stay in Stratford-upon-Avon. It was a great base for 5 days during our brief return to the UK visiting friends and family. The apartment is extremely spacious with a large open-plan lounge and dinning area leading into a large well equipped kitchen. Towards the back of the property the main bathroom has a great shower but more impressive is the lovely roll-top bath. Both bedrooms are good sized one with two single beds ideal for larger families with children or elderly parents and the master bedroom has a large, very comfortable, double bed with an ensuite wet room. The apartment itself is designed around a private courtyard which we found to be an added bonus relaxing with a glass of wine after a long days sightseeing or starting the morning off with breakfast al fresco.

Parking outside is on a permit basis which is supplied, you do have to keep an eye out on the timings as to where you can park during certain times of day. However, once we found a space we abandoned it for the majority of our stay. With a few minutes walk into the city centre there really is no need for a car.

We loved it so much that we are booking it for our return stay in December!

Only thing missing was a hairdryer.

A lovely little Gem

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactally as described. It was so close to everything we didn't need to use the car at all. The propert was very clean and tidy, the kitchen was well equipped, there was nothing we didn't find or need, it was all there.

We arrived 2 hours earlier than expected and was pleased to hear that we could settle in straight away. We were shown around and given a contact number which we didn't need at all.

There are plenty of lovely places to eat in the area and don't miss the open top bus tour of the area. The one which takes you to Warwick castle was well worth the money.

All in all I would, and have, recommend this property for its clean comfortable central location. Most deffinately a home from home, my daughter wanted us to move in perminately!!!!

Wonderful time in wonderful cottage. Immaculate inside and tastefully decorated and furnished. Both main bathroom and wetroom in double bedroom are luxurious and brilliant kitchen which has all utensils you will need. Location is perfect as 2 minute walk to the town centre.

You also have your own cellar!

Excellent Shakespeares country location

  • 4 of 5

We arrived to find parking was permit based opposite the property. Not a problem so long as you get a space or can avoid the attendants who arrive at 8am. Going into the property we where overwhelmed by how wonderfully it had been restored and returned having historically been a pub. The layout was excellent with the bedrooms to the back of the property away from any noise. A few disappointing glitches - the fire alarms for ground and top floor flats are linked so the steak burning upstairs set off the alarms downstairs and we couldn't find any supporting information to suggest that. The freeview box packed up on day two so limited tv choice - I have to say Lisa the owner was marvellous in helping us with both these issues. The last issue - velux blinds retracted in the vaulted ceiling of bedroom 2 meaning you could not close them - with a 2 year then waking up as soon as dawn broke it was a little disappointing to have the break spolit with some many unexepected glitches and our son waking up 2 hours earlier than normal. Location excellent, parking challenging but ok, proximity to sites brilliant. Certainly a lovingly refusbished flat right in the heart of historic stratford and walking distance to shakespeares birthplace and all the shopping.
