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.

Excellent place to stay! Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time staying at the corner house. We were so impressed with the communication we had from Julie and how accommodating she was. The house is beautiful and in such a fun and unique spot. The details and little goodies found throughout the house are just amazing.

We were traveling with 4 children and when we arrived they found a basket of goodies Julie had left on the kitchen table.

I am very impressed with the attention to detail and the follow up emails. Everything about our stay here was absolutely perfect. One of our favorite stops by far and we were visiting from overseas traveling around the UK so we stayed in quite a few different locations.

No complains at all, just wish we could have stayed longer.

A very well looked after and run property.

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was excellent.

The building, its decor and its contents is all very well finished, and everything is well laid out, and easy to find.

The owners were helpful during the run up to our stay, and were flexible with our check-in and out times.

It all made for a very stress free weekend away!

Spotless Georgian family friendly, beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful home is located in Shipston on Stour, a small village with a lot of character, the tea rooms nearby we visited, made you feel like you'd transported back in time.

Our family stay consisted of a few different ages of children, the toys in the home were very suitable for our 4, 8 & 14 year olds! Especially the board games which were enjoyed by all the family in the evenings. We visited Stratford during our stay, which is a 20 minute drive away, exploring lots of history.

When we arrived at the house, it was breathtaking! The decor was very elegant and everything was spotless.

The difference I found between this home and others I've stayed at was the attention to detail in absolutely everything.

There is Wi-Fi available, towels for all guests, drawers in the bathroom contain anything you may have forgotten, there are guides to all the appliances in the home, there is even some small torches hung up in case of an emergency. The owner clearly well looks after this home and thinks of everything a guest may need.

We celebrated my mum's 65th birthday here and loved every minute of it and I'm sure we will visit again due to the quality of the house, decoration, cleanliness and thoughtfulness of the owner. There was a hamper of essentials when we arrived including coffee, tea, sweets etc. and a birthday cake for my mum!

Finally the communication with Julie, the owner, has made this booking such a breeze. We had contact available to us for the whole weekend in case we needed anything, but of course we didn't as every base was already covered.

Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful home.

The perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house because it was exactly half way between ourselves in the South and our friends in the North. The reviews are all exactly right this house goes above and beyond all expectations.

It is extremely well set out for two families of four. It is decorated to the highest standard including all the lovely, tasteful Christmas decorations which made it feel so special. The facitilities are great with two bathrooms and all you need in a well resourced kitchen. We did a mixture of eating in and out and the location of the house made this work for us as well as it was in the centre of the little town close to all bars and restaurants.

The little extras and the amazing hamper made our stay as did the caring hospitality of the owner who made sure our stay was perfect in every way.

We would highly recommend this house to others.

Thank you Julie and Carl it allowed us to have a brilliant New Year with our best friends.
