I arrived after getting a bit lost and was welcomed with a cup of tea. Great room. Clean, very comfortable and warm as toast. Very friendly, but not over the top hosts, - just right. Lovely breakfast. Poor phone reception (not an issue for me but may be a consideration for some) but free wifi

I recently spent two nights at this first class country house, whilst visiting a friend in the area. The quality was higher than many hotels, and must certainly be unsurpassed by most B&Bs. My room was spacious and beautifully decorated, with a luxurious bathroom, the linens and soft furnishing were of good quality. I arrived late in the evening and... More

We booked in here as we were visiting the area for our friends' party. It is a lovely spot in the Warwickshire countryside. Quite a beautiful house full of very nice touches. A bit like my parents old house in a way, so it felt very relaxing. However, having our quite naughty four year old with us made it quite... More

This is an ideal, spacious and comfortable house in lovely Warwickshire countryside. It is a working farm and the owner stables and rides her horses here. The bedrooms are luxurious and the breakfast first class, but the house manages to retain its family home atmosphere, thanks to the warmth and hospitality of the owners, Lucy and John. Highly recommended.

I spent the weekend at this lovely B&B with my husband and friend. The rooms are delightful, spacious, beautifully decorated and very clean. This is very much a family home and the owners can't do enough to make you feel welcome. On the first night of our stay we were going to get a taxi and John, the owner, offered... More

Austons Down is a lovely two story home set back from a country lane. We were shown to a spacious corner room with a king sized bed, dresser, two comfortable chairs, walk-in closet and two (!) luggage racks for our suitcases. Also provided were a tea service and a hair dryer. The real delight, however, was the bathroom. It appeared... More

Had a delightful stay in this country house. We were looked after well by Michelle and James. Great walks and scenery nearby. Definitely recommend staying here if you want to stay near Stratford but escape the tourists for the peaceful countryside

Picked this place out as didn't want to stay in a chain hotel so looked up a couple of up market B&Bs. This is a lovely place with great rooms and a warm welcome. Lucy is a lovely hostess and made us really welcome in her fabulous family home. Very good value for the standard of accommodation

Stayed three nights, excellent hosts, excellent breakfast. Room amazing, everything you could want for. Very peaceful, ideal place to get away from everything. The Snitterfield Arms nearby provided a lovely evening meal. Ideal location for National Trust properties. Thank you Lucy for an excellent stay.

We stayed overnight as we were at a wedding locally. We were greeted by the owners with a very welcome afternoon tea before heading off to the formalities. The room was really lovely with everything you might expect and fitted out to a very high standard. The breakfast was freshly made and all the residents sat round a communal table... More

Thank you for a very fair review. It seems odd that we are only 25 miles from Birmingham and we get no mobile signal. We have wifi available and being in the Green Belt means mobile masts are not particularly popular. More
