About Tom Swift

My wife and I purchased Knollands Farm in 2012. We have one daughter, Alannah (aged 7). This small farm (50 acres) is our family home and we are on hand to help assist our holiday cottage guests with recommendations for inns/restaurants/days out if they desire any guidance.

The cottage has been enjoyed by guests for around 10 years. It was advertised through Hoseasons brochure for many years, however, we decided in 2012 that we could offer our clients better value for money by using owners direct.

Tom Swift purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Tom Swift chose Stratford-Upon-Avon area

The property is excellently located being close (1 mile) to the lovely market town of Shipston on Stour (which has a super range of independent shops, inns and restaurants).

The cottage is set in a private position with stunning countryside views.

The Cotswold village of Chipping Camden is also close by and Shakespeare's Stratford only 10 miles away.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage was converted from a agricultural barn in 1995 using reclaimed brick and timber beams. It is well insulated with oil fired central heating so provides a lovely cosy environment to return home to after a day exploring the Cotswolds. The cottage is the only accommodation on the farm other than the farm house so provides guests with a quiet and private space.

Fabulous rural location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful rural setting, ideal for exploring the Cotswolds. The holiday home looks out over glorious Warwickshire countryside and we could never tire of the views from the patio. The accommodation is clean and bright, all of our family needs were taken care of and the owners are helpful and welcoming. We will be back!

Knollands farm Shipsyon on Stour

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable house and very private. A good base for exploring the area. Ships ton is a little gem town.

The owners were very unobtrusive but helpful if required. Only glitch was the Wifi which was a bit of a problem.
