Great Holiday Cottage for visiting Friends and Family
We used this location as a base for visiting family and friends on a pre-Xmas visit from our home in Spain. As well as family visits we were attracted to being close to Stratford-upon-Avon & the nearby Cotswold villages. The cottage was as described and very clean with a super designed interior giving a very homely feel. Highly recommended.
Lovely and cosy
Myself and my partner stayed at this charming little cottage for a short break in the Midlands, lovely, quiet and rural yet still within a short distance for all amenities, the little welcome pack was most welcoming! Thank you Sarah and Richard for a lovely peaceful break away.
