“Wow!”

Wow! The Stables is everything we hoped it would be and more. We wanted a relaxed cottage to rent, not far from the buzz of town but with beautiful surroundings and on paper The Stables seemed to tick all these boxes. But in reality, it did more than just tick these boxes - it was everything we could have dreamed of.

The cottage itself is a perfect size and is beautifully furnished to a high standard (and exceptionally clean too!). The gardens are so lovely and the hot tub was definitely our favourite. The kitchen is really well equipped and the bathroom was wonderful.

Rupert was very charming and helpful (sadly we didn't get to meet Katriona) and after popping in to greet us he left us to it.

Location-wise it's roughly a 10 minute drive to Stratford, with Charlecote National Trust Park literally on the other side of the road (complete with sheep and deer) giving you a wonderful combination of countryside exploration and town fun.

Thank you, Rupert and Katriona, for letting us stay in such a lovely place!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed January 3, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Lovely warm welcome to The Stables. Set in a quiet location directly opposite Charlecote national trust park, this is a wonderful base for sightseeing around Stratford-upon-Avon and also for local walks. A very peaceful setting, the cottage is surrounded by beautiful gardens. Everything is spot on, can't think of one thing we needed - kitchen is well equipped, great shower and super comfy and stylish interiors
We'd love to visit again sometime and wouldn't hesitate to recommend
Thank you Katriona and Rupert!

This beautiful cottage is located in a picturesque village and is a perfect location to visit many places of interest. The cottage itself is beautifully decorated, very spacious and has got everything we needed for a very relaxing stay. The hot tub was lovely at the end of the day. Did not get chance to meet katriona but the added touch of the tea tray with biscuits on arrival was gratefully accepted. Rupert was very welcoming and recommended a visit to a little village called Broadway, south of Stratford, and we were not disappointed. The only little niggle we had was the high volume of activity, people using the path down the garden and cars coming and going up the drive which didn't make it feel very private.

I am really glad you had a lovely time and hope you will visit again.
The cottage is situated next to our house so at times there are 'comings and goings, to our house. I hope this did not affect your visit too much and we do try and be aware of our visitors to The Stables as much as possible. However, at times this activity cannot be avoided.

“Beautiful Cottage”
Reviewed September 4, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Spent 4 wonderful nights in the cottage and was very impressed. Very clean, very well furnished and the hot tub was a lovely way to end the day after some long walks around the Stratford area. We travel to Stratford every year for a few days and have now found our accommodation for years to come.

“Ideal place to stay on holiday”
Reviewed August 29, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was the third visit to the Stables. As the previous two visits, we had a wonderful time staying here, going to see the plays in Stratford-upon-Avon, which is just 7-8minutes ride away, visiting Cotswolds small villages, and relaxing in the owner's lovely garden. The owners' warm welcome and hospitality invites us to next visit here. Sure to come back again.

“Wonderful location and stay”
Reviewed August 16, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Just returned from a lovely relaxing break at the stables with great hosts. Reluctant to let anyone else know about this little gem but it deserves to be recognised. In the heart of Warwickshire 4 miles from Warwick and 6 from Stratford it's the perfect location to get around and see the sights.

“First Anniversary Trip”
Reviewed June 12, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Wow - what a beautiful place to stay in terms of the beauty of not only the rental property, the adjoining owners house and beautiful gardens but also the whole village and surrounding area.

The cottage itself was beautifully clean and so comfortable and spacious. First port of call - look at the guest book. We could not find one single negative comment and you can see why. It would be hard to find anything negative to say about this place. In fact my wife said she would quite happily move in permanently - a comment i saw written on more than one occasion in the guestbook!

The kitchen was well kitted out, the bathroom was nice and big with a cracking shower, the living room was beautiful to relax in and the bed was large and extremely comfortable. The hot tub was great to go into at the end of the day and was a perfect way to end the day.

We only got to meet the owners as we were about to leave as they had been away themselves for the bank holiday weekend. We did meet Lucy (i presume their daughter) who was very pleasant but what we liked is despite being so close to their house you are given the utmost privacy. The only time i really noticed someone from their household was when their lovely little young spaniel, i think called Maggie, was running around the garden when she was let out.

The location of this property is also great for neighbouring Stratford Upon Avon, Warwick and also Leamington Spa. Would i recommend this property to anybody? Yes - without any shadow of a doubt.

Thank you must go to the owners for us having such a wonderful break for our first anniversary.
