The cottage is in a very private Hamlet and was once a farm and workhouse. It is convenient for Stratford Upon Avon either by a mile walk in many directions, or by bus ( you can pick up the open topped bus at Anne Hathaways Cottage some 300 yards along the road) or by Taxi at on average £4:50 one way. There is ample parking in Stratford too. From then cottage you access many beautiful Towns and The Cotswolds easily . The NEC is also about a 25 minute drive away and very convenient for shows such as Crufts . The cottage itself is ideal for coming back form a tiring day site seeing or for a comfortable base to just relaxe or maybe meet up with family ane friends. The Royal Shakespeare Company are based in town and offer many attractions as well as performances all year. We also cater for visiting Cast and Crew for the RSC, so this may be idle for you if you too need a place to stay whilst working locally for up to 6 months. Please ask and we will help you enjoy your stay.

Beautiful restoration and renovation of this cottage

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing surprise this cottage has been! The pictures don't do it justice. Totally authentic but absolutely modern. One neighbor had amazing pre-renovation pictures, putting to rest our companion's claim that this was newly created. Our stay was flawless and thoroughly enjoyed!

Great cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at midsummer cottage, every need had been catered for and a lovely enclosed garden for our 2 dogs. Only a mile from Stratford town centre where you can get a nice meal and a drink in one of its many pubs. I would recommend a stay in this lovely cottage .

Great location away from the hustle and bustle

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay at the cottage in early September. The building is in a very pretty, historic village called Shottery... about a 25 minute walk into Stratford town centre. The cottage has all the comforts of home but I would offer one warning: The beams are VERY low and both of us hit our heads on them on a daily basis. Apart from that our stay was perfect.
