“Fabulous riverside setting”

My husband and I have visited Stratford-upon-Avon many times over the years and always stayed in one of the town centre hotels. This year, as we were staying for a week, we decided to try something a bit different, and we're so pleased we found the Midsummer Night's Dream Lodge!

The setting riverside setting was superb: quiet, beautiful and romantic. The lodge was spacious, comfortable and well equipped ... in fact, a real home from home. Christine - the owner - called us on the day we travelled to Strafford to tell us all we needed to know, and Chris and James were just a phone call away if we needed anything.

From the lodge to the town centre was a 20-25 minute walk and we enjoyed spending our 'virtual' fortune as we walked along the Tiddington Road to Stratford admiring the beautiful houses. The river taxi stops just outside the lodge, although we only used it once as we enjoyed the walk. That said, the boat ride was a treat! One day we crossed the bridge in the caravan park and did the riverside walk - which was superb.

Next time we want a few days in Stratford-upon-Avon, we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else!

The lodge is immaculate with everything you need. Amazing views of the river a perfect place to sit with a glass of wine. We caught the river taxi into Stratford and walked back which took about 20 mins. There is also a fantastic club house 5 mins walk away with a restaurant and bar, if you can drag yourself away from the lodge!
Thank you Chris and James we had a fantastic time and will definitely be booking again, hopefully for longer next time!

Just returned from a perfect few days at this lodge. The setting is just magnificent and we were lucky enough to have perfect weather although we would have enjoyed it anyway. I could have spent all the time watching the life that passed up and down the river both wildlife and people. The river taxi was great fun and the new clubhouse just wonderful.
The lodge is ideal for all of the wonderful places to visit in the area and is deceptively close to Stratford which is such a beautiful place.
Christine was very helpful with e mails prior to our arrival and a check up phone call to make sure everything was OK. Our time passed too quickly and we are looking forward to a return trip, hopefully for longer next time.
Thank you

Thank you for your kind comments. Glad you had a relaxing time at the Dream Lodge - happy to offer a 10% Discount on a future booking. Kind regards and thank you again for giving up some time to write and let us know how much you enjoyed your stay. It feels like a rural retreat but as you said deceptively close to Stratford.Lots to do - or just chill out.

“Beautiful lodge in stunning location”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The lodge is very spacious with beautiful decor and a kitchen with everything you need including a dishwasher and a washer. There are 2 bathrooms for 4 people, excellent.
The lodge is right beside the river and the boat taxi to Stratford is only a 5 minutes journey.
The best part of the day is to sit on the balcony in the evening watching the ducks, swans and rowing boats on the river while you sip a glass of wine. The views are stunning. Perfect!
Thank you owners Chris and James for excellent communication and customer service.
We had a fantastic and memorable stay and look forward to another visit sometime.

Booked this property for a quiet week away from the stresses and strains of everyday life. What a perfect choice. Great communication with the owner, clear and easy instructions. The lodge itself is spotlessly clean, spacious with all mod cons. Beautiful surroundings a stones throw from the river with beautiful, almost hypnotic views. Regular river taxi's to Stratford. The only downside, for a fussy sleeper like myself, was the bed. If you like a hard bed its fine, but if you are used to memory foam soft comfort, it takes a bit of getting used to, but this is a personal preference. I would definitely recommend this lodge to anyone wanting to escape for peace and tranquillity. Will definitely book again.

“Fantastic Lodge in perfect location”
Reviewed April 28, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We really enjoyed our long weekend break in this lodge. It is very comfortable and well appointed with everything we needed. The location could not be better next to the river with the handy river taxis departing virtually from the door step. The owner, Christine, made us feel very welcome and was always on hand at the end of the phone. We would love to return and have already recommended the lodge to our friends.
