“We didn't want to leave”
Reviewed April 28, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Yew Tree Cottage is in a delightful setting and perfect location for an easy stroll into Town. The cottage is furnished to a very high standard with linen and towels of an excellent quality.
The owners have provided lots of useful information as well as biscuits, wine and milk to start us off! We have no hesitation in recommending this lovely cottage to families or couples.

“Great place for family”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at Yew Tree Cottage in Stratford upon Avon for two weeks for our sons wedding. Our two adult daughters stayed with us part of the time as well. The cottage is situated in a secure complex within walking distance of town. The facilities were 5 star, the property was fully equipped and was serviced,cleaned weekly whilst we were there. Prior to the wedding we used the property for a family get together as many of our relatives were staying around the district and all commented on the high standard of the property. There are plenty of restaurants and pubs available nearby to eat out at. The shared garden is very well maintained and makes a pleasurable setting for the property. Any concerns were promptly and efficiently taken care of by the property manager. Would highly recommend.

“Home from home”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This was our second visit to Yew Tree Cottage and we hope to return again next spring.
Everything you need is provided for. Location is excellent. Patio furniture is provided at both aspects of the house.
Our family now feel that Yew Tree Cottage is "our house" in Stratford.
We just love this place

“Lovely cottage, fantastic location”

A lovely, well-presented and comfortable holiday cottage in beautiful (shared) gardens. It had everything we wanted for a family stay (2 families with 3 young children).. The kitchen was especially well-equipped and the beds comfy. Best of all was the fantastic location, in a quiet part of town but less than 5 minutes walk from the theatre and Stratford attractions. The owner was very helpful, providing a cot and high chair for the baby. I can't imagine anywhere nicer.

“Simply could not be better”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Lets start with the location, a few minutes walk along the old tramway brings you into the centre of town, so you can leave your car in the spacious car parking spaces belonging to the property. There is also a children's play area near to the tramway that proved popular with my 12 yr old daughter. As the property is so close to town it was a nice walk back after a show at the RSC.
Now the house, it was well equipped with everything you could need in a perfectly presented way. That is from the quality of the kitchen and appliances through to the towels and bedding, it was of a standard often hoped for but seldom achieved when on holiday.
We had a great time in Stratford, our second visit to the area, the first for this property however we hope to return as this property literally made this holiday,

“Nothing could be finer!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Sometimes you don't want to share your discovery so you can keep it all to yourself–like a favorite fishing hole or where the wild morel mushrooms grow. Yew Tree Cottage is just this, but here I am letting you know about it! The cottage could not be in a better locale, 5 minutes' leisurely walk to the Royal Shakespeare Theater (RST) but in an absolutely quiet locale. After performances at the RST, we would sit outside in the large grassy, manicured garden eating dessert or having a glass of fine wine over candlelight (yes, during our stay the weather was fine. Occasionally). The cottage was exceedingly clean, comfortable, up-to-date, yet still maintaining a quaint Ye Olde English feeling. The owners, Elaine and Sarah, were responsive and responsible. They promptly answered our questions via email or phone mssgs while we were there. But please just don't try to stay here when we want to return!

“Excellent Accommodation In Great Location”
Reviewed February 28, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Spent a week at Yew Tree Cottage that really could not be faulted. The location is absolutely great - walking distance to the town and RSC and an easy drive out of town to visit the surrounding area. The kitchen is the best equipped holiday rental we've ever stayed in - it was like being at home, and everything worked. My 3 teenage sons were all accommodated well with no complaints for a change. The linen was of hotel quality & the towels were especially soft and there were plenty for all. The recommendations for dinner found in the cottage folder were spot on - the Dirty Duck/Black Swan pub was a real hit for the whole family & my husband & I had a wonderful meal at Lambs. We used the Cottage as a base to explore Shakespeare country, and can particularly recommend Warwick Castle and Blenheim Palace. The 50 minute drive to Cadbury World was also appreciated by the boys!
