“Truly a dream”
Reviewed April 11, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We spent two relaxed nights in the lodge with our two children aged 14 and 10 years.
We were impressed by the high standard of cleanliness, well equipped kitchen, comfortable furniture and beautiful setting. We highly recommend this lovely, tranquil space to spend quality time with loved ones. Christine was very helpful and ensured our needs were met.
Sadly, two nights was too short but still we still had a memorable and enjoyable time. Can only dream of how great the stay would be in fine, warm weather.

Liked best: The comfort of the lodge and view from the lodge
Liked least: The flapping from the bathroom ventilation fan during the windy nights.

Thank you for your delightful Review - we are glad that you and your children had a good time together at the Lodge. We hope that you had a trip on the private River Taxi and maybe got to the RSC. ( in the Summer there is masses of stuff for youngsters plus Free Open-Air Theatre in The Dell.

Reviewed March 28, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

What a lovely welcome by Christine , the lodge was spectacular and the views as well every thing that you would need was in the lodge and more .The river taxi was a lovely trip up to Stratford catch it by the riverside restaurant .We had a lovely meal there and was reasonably priced .Just to sit on the veranda with a glass of wine and watch the boats go up and down the river was mind numbing. Carnt wait to come back again (lovely Easter gift from our daughter Jennifer )

Thank you for your lovely Review and for leaving our Lodge immaculate. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in spite of the weather. ( The River Avon is always a joy to watch at all times of the year - and the Private River Taxi is a great way to travel). We look forward to welcoming you back.

We visit Stratford-upon-Avon often to see our 20 year old son who's lived there for over 2 years. Usually we stay a couple of nights in a budget hotel but this time it was Christmas so we wanted space to have a family Christmas. Midsummer Nights Dream Lodge was perfect! Spacious, clean, stylish, warm, beautifully equipped and a location second to none. The owner, Christine, was extremely welcoming and had added lots of festive touches. Just a few feet away from the River Avon, we shared our Christmas with swans, ducks, geese, a heron, a cormorant, squirrels and loads more - I kept waiting for them to burst into song.....it was idyllic. It was close enough to the town centre to walk, though the weather wasn't great, so we taxied in the evenings. Highly recommend this place - we'll be back.

“Beautiful Location”
Reviewed October 29, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Absolutely beautiful location, lovely to laze on the sofa and watch the world go by on the river couldn't have asked for a nicer view. We all enjoyed staying at the lodge although slightly disappointed by the overall cleanliness, on the surface looked great but the cutlery, cups etc all needed washing before they could be used, also quite a few cobwebs around.

We spend the day at the races and a ghost tour in the evening so had a really enjoyable time, it's close enough to Stratford upon Avon and the little river taxi takes you past some amazing houses on the riverbank.

On the whole an enjoyable weekend, one little bit of advice, do your research before you leave home, we all struggled for any internet connection on our phones and so couldn't find numbers for taxis or takeaway etc, may be useful to have this information at the lodge.

It is almost impossible to decide which is the best season to visit Midsummer Nights Dream Lodge in Stratford upon Avon. The tranquil position by the side of the river Avon is always beautiful. A short break in mid October when the trees on the river bank were in glorious colour in the late autumn sunshine was lovely. The evenings may have been a little cool but sitting on the balcony by the light of the full moon with a glass of wine for a nightcap watching swans glide past was magical. Inside it was cosy and warm and because of the quiet position with no one over looking the lodge it was possible to sit by the floor length windows and still enjoy the night activity on the river. I have visited at most times of the year and it is always serene and beautiful. There are many places of interest to visit within a very short travelling distance. Compton Verny is a favourite with its lovely park and fantastic art gallery and museum it holds special exhibitions ,both in the garden and the gallery, many times during the year and is always worth a visit. The lodge is always well prepared, clean and very welcoming a credit to Chris and James.

“Just lovely!”

Lovely, well-maintained lodge with equally lovely owners - they took the trouble to communicate about key pick-up and arrival information well in advance, and even messaged to make sure that we got there safely as we were arriving late. They had generously supplied plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits for the guests, as well as toiletries, dish soap etc, unlike some places which provide the barest minimum (or don't provide any!). They even had a small book collection - our daughters loved the anthologies of poems for young readers, and our 3 YO son the book on British wildlife - his bedtime reading material for the stay.

The surroundings were peaceful and quiet - it was calming looking out of the windows at the willows and swans gliding past, and there were rabbits too, to the delight of the children.

The washing machine wasn't working during our visit - it was not an issue for us being a short stay.
