Please bear in mind that this review comes from a seasoned international traveller living in North America, having lived in England.
My husband and I booked this charming cottage for three weeks after reading about it's location and positive reviews on VRBO.
We arrived to find the cottage much as described with the addition of welcoming fresh flowers and the essentials for breakfast eliminating the necessity of a trip to the shops - a welcome and thoughtful touch, much appreciated after a long flight and drive.
We had to call in a neighbour to help us access the internet connection.
When I put my head on the pillow, I was aware of a strong chemical scent emanating from the pillow - no matter, I would choose another pillow, same noxious scent. On to the cushions in the lounge, same scent, though to a lesser extent. I could not discern whether this scent would be from a laundry product or a spray-on product.
When trying to store items in the refrigerator, we noticed that the storage shelf for the tall bottles on the small refrigerator door was falling off its bracket holding it on to the door and had been held together with tape. The issue seemed to be not only a broken holder on the storage shelf, but the bracket on the refrigerator door was broken.
Another refrigerator problem was considerable ice build-up in the freezer compartment, preventing the freezer compartment door from closing, further exacerbating the issue.
We advised the owner of the refrigerator problems and she promptly dropped by to defrost the freezer compartment, but the broken shelf could not be repaired, necessitating the storing of tall bottles on their sides on a shelf.
The upstairs sink was very slow to drain, this too was taken care of by the owner while she was defrosting the refrigerator.
There was a very audible creaky noise on the upstairs landing and first stair, such that it would awaken someone at night. I'm surprised that no one had mentioned this in the past. I would imagine that this would be a quick fix.
The kitchen was well equipped; however, much as is the case in many homes, there wasn't one sharp knife.
The tap water was excellent and the water pressure was very good with ample available hot water.
We noted a large selection of DVD's, but the only TV to have a DVD player was in one of the bedrooms; would have been appreciated to watch some of this films on the TV in the lounge.

Ideal spot for a winter break on Stratfords doorstep.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We’re chuffed you enjoyed your break.
Cosy and comfortable, well appointed and ideally placed south of Stratford.
Welford Cottage was a lovely location for our Christmas holiday family break. We visited Stratford and nearby beautiful Cotswold villages. The well equipped kitchen was ideal for our Christmas dinner and all our meals.
Convenient and comfortable
This is a very well appointed property just a few miles away from the centre of Stratford-upon-Avon. It has everything you could want for a holiday in terms if facilities within the house; it is very comfortable, tidy and everything works. You are never short of something to do in or round Stratford with its Shakespeare connection, the RSC and its three theatres and many, many interesting houses and gardens to visit within an hour. Two weeks flew by, and we were never bored.
Thank you so much for taking the time to give us such great feedback, we're really pleased you enjoyed your stay!
