Luxury Cottage, Stratford upon Avon, Cotswolds. In The Popular Village Of Tiddington Close To Stratford Upon Avon (1.5 Miles / 25 Minute Walk)
Fernleigh Coach House was built in 1882 but converted in 2012 to the highest standards. It retains exposed beams and walls, enhanced with limestone and oak floors throughout. There is a light and airy kitchen with hand painted shaker units and French doors opening onto a sunny patio; a living room with exposed brick wall and beams with stable door to let the sun flow in; a downstairs shower room tiled in limestone with double shower; and stairs leading to the first floor bedroom with double bed and French doors with juliet balcony overlooking the garden. Outside there is a good sized partially walled private sunny patio for you to enjoy al fresco dining. The detached property is located within the grounds of the owners home, with access via a gravelled path. Stratford is only a short drive or walk, but in the village you can relax and enjoy good food and ales at the local pub, deli/tapas bar or restaurants, there’s also a well stocked village shop. Parking is on-street.

It has it all.
Beautiful and very tasteful accommodation in a peaceful and private setting. A great selection of places to eat only a stroll away. A Spar shop that stocks just about everything, a local bakery and all this with out venturing out of Tiddington. Stunning Stratford is either a short walk, a bus ride or a water taxi. The location make this property an ideal base for Stratford and surrounding areas. We will definitely return and not hesitate to recommend.
Peaceful and relaxing
Karin and Matt have put a lot of effort into making the Coach House a very well-appointed place to spend a relaxing week. Being so close to facilities was so handy, yet you are tucked away in your own peaceful little niche with a lovely garden to sit and look at. We enjoyed the Indian restaurant and used the Spar shop every day. Tiddington is the ideal place from which to explore the local area, and we would recommend the Coach House as a very comfortable place to stay.
Karin and Matt were the ideal hosts, never intruding, but we felt they were there if we needed local advice or information.
First class .
We were thrilled with this lovely coach house ,Have had the best time visiting national trust houses and gardens ,walks all around Stratford Upon Avon ,Warwick races, so much to do and see. To come back to relax in such a comfortable home and not have to cook as eating out in the pub or Indian and Chinese restaurants all within a few minutes walk away was a big plus , Karin and Mathew were so welcoming and made our holiday very relaxing . We hope to go back again some day . A truly lovely place to stay ,
Wonderful high specification coach house for 2 ideally situated to explore the Stratford area.
We have just spent a really enjoyable week at The Fernleigh Coach House in Tiddington near Stratford. The property was fitted, equipped and maintained to the highest standards, that little bit of luxury topped off with a welcome bottle of Prosecco in the fridge. Karin and Matt were friendly hosts but not intrusive allowing us to enjoy the stay from start to finish while being there if we needed them. The Coach house has all that you need as well as a good wifi connection.
Tiddington is a small village with all the facilities on hand, a cash machine, Spa store, local pub and other eating places, much choice all within walking distance.
Stratford is only 1.5 miles or a 30 minute stroll along the main road. This allows you to explore on foot and have a drink without needing to drive. A wide range of golf locally as well as Warwick within 10 miles,Cheltenham an hour, and plenty of rural locations to explore.
This was a really exceptional property in an ideal location to stop the world and get off.
Lovely accommodation in an excellent location. From front of house we were AMAZED at the privacy the coach house had. We loved it.
Although so quiet, you are still within 100yards of amenities such as a shop, pub, bakers, and try the Indian restaurant - lovely food and VERY reasonable (esp Sun-Thurs).
This is a wonderful base for visiting Stratford-upon-Avon (easy to walk.(on both sides of river), and surrounding areas.
This coach house was recommend to us and we would recommend to anybody.
Excellent accommodation in a great location
Fernleigh Coach House was a delight and even better than the photographs - spotlessly clean, very comfortable and well equipped. Karin and Matt were very welcoming and recommended lots of local attractions to visit and our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. Tiddington is a great place to stay with lots to do in the area, the local restaurants, pub and shop are very good and Stratford on Avon is only 20 minutes walk away. Karin suggested getting bread from the local artisan baker, Knead It, and a highlight of the holiday was a bread making course.
Many thanks to Karin and Matt for a wonderful holiday and we would definitely recommend Fernleigh Coach House.
