I booked 2 nights at this B&B when I went to visit family. I was greeted at the door by Yvette and Stephen, and really well looked after. The bedroom was on suite, and exceptionally clean. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was good, I had a choice of cereals, yogurt, fresh & dried fruit, cooked breakfast and toast.... More

Stephen and Yvette were excellent hosts - friendly and very helpful. Nice garden is a bonus. We had the twin room which was clean and we had a good sleep. They do a great breakfast. Highly recommend their B&B.We wanted to try the El Cafe butgot there too late - had a good meal at the Horseshoe Inn instead

Steve and Yvette welcomed us to their beautiful home with coffee and home made cake on arrival and with plenty of helpful advice on how to make the most of our time in the Cotswolds including some smaller places that we had not previously heard about. The house and bedroom are spacious and beautifully furnished so that it feels like... More

We were greeted with a lovely warm welcome. We had the only two rooms and enjoyed a very comfortable night with a delicious breakfast the next day looking out onto a beautiful well tended garden. I did my research and I certainly wasn't disappointed on this special trip with Mum - thank you Trip Advisor!

Last spring we stayed here overnight. We were very late arriving at Heathrow and thus very late arriving at Holly End. Our email to advise our hosts of our delay apparently went astray. Despite this we received a very warm welcome and honest concern about our travel misadventures. The White Horse Inn down the road was recommended for dinner and... More

Recently we (my wife and I) walked the Shakespeare Way from Stratford to Oxford. In Shipston on Stour we had the great pleasure to stay at Holly End B&B, hosted by Steve and Yvette Hunt. A wonderful place to be after a long day's hike through the English countryside. A very pleasant respite, mostly thanks to Steve and Yvette, Don't... More

We had a great stay at Holly End. Our hosts, Steve and Yvette were very gracious and entertaining. They helped us plan our time in Shipston and recommended a great restaurant. The room was excellent, clean and comfortable. It was very quiet and great for sleeping. The breakfast was excellent and fulfilling. Highly recommend this B & B.

This little gem in walking distance from the village centre is well worth a visit. The owner, Yvette, does everything to make your visit perfect and the breakfast is a dream. Local produce and fresh fruit gave us a good start of the days walk. Good pubs and shops in short walking distance.

We stayed for 1 night whilst attending a friend's 40th Birthday celebrations in Shipston-on-Stour. Warm and friendly welcome from Yvette and her hubby to their family home. Cosy, clean and comfortable double bedroom with ensuite. Excellent breakfast - nothing was too much trouble. Good value - would stay again and will recommend to friends and family.

We have stayed at Holly End a number of times, so I felt we really should write a review. It is very well placed, not far from either Stratford upon Avon or the Cotswolds, but more peaceful than trying to stay in any of the local tourist towns. The bedrooms are all spacious, spotlessly clean and have lots of little... More
