I have stayed in Wolsey Lodges before, and I am so pleased that my twin sister and I were able to stay at Austons Down for a school reunion weekend in Warwick. I had told my sister that it would be wonderful and we weren't disappointed! Lucy and John were marvellous hosts. They welcomed us in to their beautiful home... More

This was my first stay here and my first in a Wolsey Lodge. It won't be my last at either. Austons Down is a refreshing change from the corporate bed factories in Warwick and Stratford. I stayed here because the bed factories were full and I'm so glad that I did. Like so many of my business trips my big... More

We were lucky enough to spot Austons Down on trip advisor and decided a rural retreat was just what we needed to celebrate our anniversary, we were looking for countryside views, peace and quiet and something special in addition to a hotel chain, we didn't know what but we just knew we wanted something special. We were so pleased to... More

Needing somewhere to stay when crossing the country from Somerset to Norfolk, this seemed like the perfect spot, it was. Just off the main roads we used to get there, my husband met us there and he had come from the London area and yet in the countryside and very quiet. Beautiful house, very comfortable en-suite rooms, very welcoming hosts,... More

I stayed here mid-week whilst on business. All the usual hotel options were full and I found this place on Tripadvisor. Driven mainly by the impressive looking exterior property pictures, I booked it online taking the last available room. From the outside the property is imposing and immaculately presented. It is modern but built in the Queen Anne style and... More

A first class place to stay. John and Lucy (brilliant chef) were ideal hosts and we had a most enjoyable dinner together with the other guests staying that night. The standard of the accommodation was faultless with the bedroom very comfortable and the en suite bathroom fitted with high quality features. We could only stay one night - we wish... More

This was such an enjoyable B&B to stay at with excellent host & service and an wonderful breakfast. It is located only a few miles from Stratford-Upon-Avon and the amazingly beautiful Cotswolds. We will definitely stay here again if we are anywhere in the area. We could not find fault with any aspect of our stay.

I hadn't read the reviews placed on here before going to stay at Auston Downs, as it was a surprise, but having read some of them since I think they are completely unfair. The 'scary' dogs were not in the least intimidating for anyone who has ever owned a dog. The Jack Russell came to see us, and then wandered... More

Beautiful Queen Anne style home set in lovely quiet countryside. The only noise you'll here is dogs and sheep!. No phone signal, but on a break away from the grind, who needs a phone.
