"A lovely house in a great location
We had a lovely Easter weekend in Stratford upon Avon, and this was the ideal place to stay. The owners could not have been more welcoming, and their house was spotlessly clean and beautifully presented. The house was just a short walk from all the shops and attractions in the town, ideal for our theatre visit. The courtyard garden was a colourful haven, perfect for a relaxing glass of red in the evening! I think Val and Simon have provided just about everything one could possibly need in a holiday home from home.
My family and I cannot recommend this place highly enough, and hope to stay again in the future."
Home Away independent review. Rating: ***** 5 out of 5.
