“Great cottage … Great Location”
Reviewed October 17, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Had a wonderful week visiting some lovely towns and countryside in and around Warwickshire, the North Cotswolds and Oxfordshire. So glad we choose this cottage for our stay as it definitely was a major contribution to a perfect holiday. We enjoyed leisurely breakfasts overlooking the picturesque gardens and always looked forward to getting back in the evenings after our day trips. The cottage is very comfortable, and has all the facilities one could wish for, it felt like a real and welcoming home from home. Superbly located to take full advantage of all this area has to offer. Highly recommended.

“5 star accommodation”
Reviewed August 4, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We spent a 5 day break exploring Stratford and all things Shakespeare including the theater and it was a pleasure to return each evening to such a comfortable and characterful cottage. The accommodation has been thoughtfully planned with lots of little luxury touches to make your stay a pleasant one.

“A pretty, well equipped, comfortable cottage”
Reviewed July 25, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Stayed for a week, joined by family members from Seattle for their birthday present to us of Arden Hotel dinner, B&B and RSC seats. Welford cottage is attractive, immaculate, comfortable, well furnished and well stocked with welcome basic consumables and fresh flowers. Private patio, Pretty, well maintained shared garden space. Reserved car park space. 5-10 minutes by car to centre Stratford. Weekday bus service stop on main road. No service Sundays. Taxi ±£15 each way. Waitrose about half way.
Only criticism: the WiFi was not working.
Provided you have wheels, a very good bet.

We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay despite the WIFI not being available for you. The issue, which has since been rectified by BT, was a problem with the outside line and sadly out of our control. Many thanks for choosing Welford Cottage and for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review. All the best, Sarah and Ann

“Lovely stay at this gorgeous cosy cottage”
Reviewed July 16, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I have booked Welford cottage for 3 nights in July to stay with my mum and dad before my wedding in Stratford upon Avon, we had a lovely time in the cottage, it was very clean, well equipped, beautiful garden, near by supermarket and also all attractions and beautiful cotswolds nearby. we have visited Hidcote Manor gardens and they were gorgeous, only 4 miles away from the cottage and Stratford upon avon is only 10 minute drive away.

I would definitely come back and visit again with my husband!

“STUNNING”
Reviewed June 10, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

people found this review helpful

My daughter & myself stayed at this wonderful cottage for a week. When we arrived it was spotlessly clean everywhere, a lovely touch was a vase of beautiful pink roses..... There were also tea bags, coffee, both instant & fresh, sugar, milk everything needed for a hot drink when you arrive after a long journey, there was even juice for a child.

It is a really cosy, comfy cottage, it has a lovely patio area overlooking a well kept communal garden. The beds are really comfy & the shower in the bathroom is a lovely power shower. Their is a period fireplace but unfortunately it can't be lit, but if you feel chilly there are storage heaters you can use.; so no problem keeping warm.

The position of the cottage is brilliant for visiting so many places nearby. The centre of Stratford is a ten minute drive. You can actually catch a bus just outside the cottages to go to many places if you don't want to drive.

Blenheim Palace, Ragley Hall, Warwick, Stow-on-the-Wold are all within easy reach, so you are never lost for somewhere different to go if you can drag yourself away from this gorgeous cottage!

Thank you so very much for your kind words! My mum and I are really grateful you took the time to leave a review and to hear you both enjoyed your stay. We have always tried hard to make the cottage just how we'd want it to be if we were staying, so seeing this review has just made it all worthwhile. Thanks again, Sarah and Ann
