The coach house is a stunning conversion, situated at the rear of the owners' house, very private and peaceful even though it has the main road nearby. The decor is really lovely, spotlessly clean and very well equipped, complimented by a very pretty garden area. We used the river taxi several times to take us into Stratford, and also the bus which takes you right into the centre. No shortage of lovely restaurants nearby, our favourite was Connelly's Tapas bar just across the road, and Bistro Pierre by the bridge in Stratford was excellent. The owners are extremely warm and welcoming whilst respecting your privacy. We would certainly return, and have already recommended staying here to our friends. Thank you Karin and Matt.
Highly recommended and would stay here again without hesitation. Great location with pubs and restaurants close by, nicely furnished and equipped with all the mod cons. The hosts are very friendly without being intrusive.
The property was exactly as advertised and very pretty. We only had one minor drawback - the bathroom being downstairs and we being the age of night time visits there!
Karin was a perfect hostess and left us to our own devices but was available when we had questions - a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Shame Karin couldn’t organise the weather!
Perfect weekend away
We stopped at this cosy coach house for the bank holiday weekend and was very impressed! It is very nice inside with modern features and a very comfy bed. The owners were very caring and will handle any needs you could possibily have. It is in the perfect location just a short distance from Stratford Upon Avon which has lots to see and do. We will definitely be back in the future!
All you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay
Ideal location for us. Quietly tucked away off the Main Street of a pretty village with a pub, shop and dining options. Beautifully maintained to very high standard with all you need for a short or long stay. Our second time in this property and we would definitely stay again. Kind and welcoming owners.
