“Bigger than you think!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

This is a great cottage although it looks small when you first arrive it has a TARDIS effect - it is definitely bigger on the inside. It was clean, tidy and set out well. It was really handy having WIFI access. Also the location was ideal for visiting friends and family who live in Worcester, Solihull and Stratford. The owners were great and ensured that we had settled in ok without being too intrusive. They also own the little sandwich shop next door but one which was VERY handy!! :-)

The only slightly negative comments we could make are:
1- Lack of some essential cooking utensils - such as wooden spoons, sharp knives (we had to buy one) and saucepan lids
2 - Living in the Highlands of Scotland - we were not used to the amount of traffic as the cottage is on a busy route. The back bedroom was great for our 3 yr old - he never heard a thing, unfortunately we were aware of late night/early morning travellers.

But overall, a great place and we would recommend the cottage for other potential hirers!

“Home Away From Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

This was my 5th stay at this great Holiday Rental so that will probably be your clue that I love it! The Cottage is always spotlessly clean and has everything you could need to be comfortable including the recently added washing machine. My husband and I stayed during August and used the back patio which opens up to John and Elaine's lovely garden on several occasions. Great location only a few minutes from the M5, ideal for getting to local sights and attractions. The kitchen equipped with everything you would need to cook a meal but with The Ewe & Lamb pub only a 5 minute walk why would you!! The Ewe & Lamb is a popular local pub with great food and a good selection of beer and wine at reasonable prices.
Owner's John and Elaine are fantastic hosts and as they live next door are always available if you need something or have questions. The Cottage is a wonderful alternative to impersonal and expensive hotels. I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

“Great location and comfortable cottage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We booked the cottage for a week whilst working in Bromsgrove, It had a great location, plus it was very clean and a well equipped cottage. A real home from home. The owners were very helpful and easy to do business with. Good value for money
