About the property

Charming Grade II Listed Residence In Shipston On Stour, Perfect For Exploring Stratford Upon Avon, The Cotswolds and Central England

Sleeps 8 (max 7 adults + 1 child)

The Corner House is a charming Grade II listed four-bedroom period property in the centre of Shipston on Stour, dating back to the early 19th Century. It has been renovated to a high standard and is beautifully decorated throughout. The house has 3 floors and its layout is perfect for couples, families or groups. On the ground floor there is an elegant family dining room with wooden floor and period features. Opposite is a relaxing and cosy lounge with sumptuous velvet sofas and 32inch television with built in DVD. A large fully equipped kitchen with informal dining area is situated to the rear of the property with a shower room and toilet leading off. A handy utility room leads to a small sunny courtyard with table and chairs. On the 1st floor there is a large luxurious family bathroom with a bath and walk in shower. Bedroom 1 is a romantic large double-bedded room with dual aspect windows. Bedroom 2 is an elegant twin bedded room furnished with period pieces. Bedroom 3 is of smaller proportions and furnished with a pretty, single daybed with pull out trundle beneath. The optional pull out trundle is suitable for a child (see image gallery) due to its smaller proportions (standard length, small single width) . On the 2nd floor there is a large (height restricted in places) open plan attic with a double bed and seating area and luxury wash facilities. It has pleasant dual aspect views of the church tower and roofscape towards the Cotswold countryside. The spacious room has an elegant slipper bath and hand basin (note no wc). The house was built around 1820, and typical of a property of this period it has many quirky features including some height restricted ceilings and doors. Many original features have been retained and the house provides a truly exceptional base for a short break or longer stay.

Conveniently situated right in the heart of Shipston On Stour, guests can enjoy the convenience of having a choice of small local supermarkets, independent retailers, pubs and eateries right on the doorstep. These are all within just a few minutes walk of the property. Shipston is a thriving historic market town, named as The Best Place to Live in The Midlands, 2017 (Sunday Times). Shipston is approximately 9 miles from Stratford upon Avon, on the edge of the Cotswolds. There is plenty of free parking available throughout the town. There are several free unreserved parking spaces directly alongside the house. Alternatively the nearest free car park is just a short stroll away. The property offers guests the best of both worlds; amenities within walking distance yet just a short drive from Stratford Upon Avon and the many beautiful Cotswolds villages and historic attractions. Complimentary wifi is provided. Bed linen and towels are included in rental rates (1 bath towel plus1 hand towel provided per guest).

About Julie Ball

We have owned this property with our extended family for a number of years and are delighted that so many of our guests now return year after year to create their own special family memories at The Corner House.

We consider it a great privilege to share our home with families and friends celebrating special family events and reunions.The Corner House is very much designed 'for families by families'.

Our own children grew up in and around the local area and have loved exploring the beauty and historic attractions that Warwickshire and The Cotswolds has to offer.

The property has been fully refurbished, and as this is also our family home, our philosophy has always been to make it somewhere that our guests can relax and feel completely at home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow - amazing! This house is a perfect mix of history and modern day living. We were made so welcome (especially the children) with every detail thought of.

The Georgian dolls' house was particularly popular!



A great location with everything we needed right on the doorstep. We found it so handy for Stratford Upon Avon and visiting many of the Cotswold villages which really are as beautiful as I expected. The useful visitor information (including walk / cycle routes) and books were really helpful.



The perfect place for get togethers - we loved the formal dining room and the games tables! Everything we needed and more - highly recommended and so unique.

Beautiful home in a fantastic setting!

  • 5 of 5

As a group of 6 mid-30s girls, we had the most wonderful stay at The Corner House. Great local pubs to while away an afternoon, lots of places to go for a walk and some fresh air, and all the amenities in the house you could possibly hope for. Could not have picked a better place to stay. Thank you xxx

A wonderful home in the Cotswolds

  • 5 of 5

Recently we stayed as we were getting married in the area. Julie could not have done more to make our stay special. Upon arrival, there were little wedding decorations dotted around the place with a wonderful welcome basket too.

Everyone who stayed had a wonderful time and we would certainly return.

Communication with Julie is brilliant and she couldn't have done more for us. Do not hesitate to book.

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 nights in this spacious and well-appointed Georgian house, built in 1810. Julie provided everything that we could possibly have needed and answered our questions in a very speedy manner. Our family of 7 loved its "character" but also enjoyed the modern kitchen and bathrooms. The house was quite large giving us plenty of room to spread out. The location is superb -- close to many of the best Cotswold villlages. In addition, Shipston is a lovely town with cute shops, a good grocery store with delicious bakery goods just 150 feet away from Corner House! We hope to go back again some day to this great place!!!
