The cottage is truly historic and authentic, but in an excellent and clean state, and with todays comfort of a fully equipped kitchen, wifi and bath. It is big enough for a family of four and a dog. The cottage is "dog-friendly" and the enclosed garden was a nice feature for our little friend. For tall people; just watch your head, as the historic wooden beams are sometimes low! The cottage is just a 5 minute walk from Anna Hathaway’s cottage. The centre is about 30minutes walk, or a short drive with plenty of parking. Our tip is to rent your own (motor)boat for an hour on the Avon with Avon Boating, and do your own cruise! Just need to be lucky with the weather.

The owners are very helpful and met us on arrival to hand over the keys and give advise on the area. One of the best assets is its location, a flat 10min walk and you are either in the town centre or sat on the grass by the river outside the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. As others have mentioned we had fresh flowers in rooms and an excellent selection of refreshments on arrival. We will be returning !!!!
