Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Very cosy - we had a great time and would certainly consider going back. Really convenient for both Warwick and Stratford! We took our dog and there’s a great park 2 minutes’ walk away. Dec 2012.
  2. Enjoyable holiday in comfortable and well equipped cottage, with access to very interesting private island on River Avon. Nov 2012.
  3. The property was in a lovely setting, we had full access to the owners beautiful garden and it also had a private island!The location was ideal for trips to Warwick (5 mins) and Stratford -on -Avon (15 mins). Their was 2 pubs within a ten minute walk and a village shop which stocked most things. Sept 2012.
  4. Made us very welcome. Good accommodation. Everithing OK. June 2012.
  5. We were very lucky to choose the freak good weather in March, which made our holiday perfect. My fondest memory is, after a day’s sightseeing in Stratford, to go back to the accommodation, where we poured a couple of glasses of our gifted wine, then sat for two hours down on the waterside terrace watching the fish jump for flies on the river - it was so peaceful and warm. Our hosts were also warm and hospitable, we couldn’t have found a better place to stay anywhere. The accommodation was small but proved to be excellent value for money and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone - except that they might apply for the dates when we would want to return, later in the year! March 2012.
  6. The Writing Room was a wonderful "chill out" experience. Everything we needed for a relaxing weekend was available (with a welcome bottle of wine in the ’fridge!). It was central to all the places we wanted to visit and we could also use the local bus when we didn’t want to drive and have the hassle of parking in the hotspots like Stratford or Warwick. Sept 2011.
  7. Fantastic location. The accommodation was extremely comfortable and we had everything we needed. Kirsty and Matthew were lovely, very approachable and kind. The swing seat by the river Avon and the island were the icing on the cake. Aug 2011.
  8. My wife and I had a lovely break in The Writing Room. It was ideally placed for visiting Stratford, Warwick and Leamington which we enjoyed. It was a beautiful location on the banks of the Avon where we sat on the swing bench enjoying the sunset. The facilities were excellent, Kirsty and Matt were friendly and welcoming. We would recommend it highly. Aug 2011.
  9. This was a superb base, in a quiet friendly village. We found it ideal to visit Stratford, Banbury, Warwick, Kenilworth and Bourton on the Water, (Cotswold Country). Our hosts were lovely and gave us the freedom of their island, around which the river circled. We also had part of the garden for BBQ’s if we wanted. We would certainly go back, it was relaxing and cheering, and there is so much more to explore in that part of the country. Cheers. June 2011.
