Stayed at measure cottage for three nights. Great cottage in a brilliant location. Took our two boys (3&6) and visited Warwick castle, Cadbury world and Drayton Manor, all within short drives of the cottage. Also loads of country parks to visit in the area. The boys loved the hot tub, really easy to use as you don't even need to heat it up ! Would really recommend this cottage for a young family on a break.
On arrival Measure Cottage has its own parking space outside front door.The kitchen is equipped with everything you will need.It has a downstairs toilet and a bathroom upstairs, again equipped with toilet rolls and towels. All the bedding was supplied and the beds were very comfortable. The lounge had a lovely big fire place with log burner, logs,fire lighters, matches all there. Warmed the room in no time. The garden was secluded and had a hot tub which was very relaxing, easy to use. You get the noise of traffic passing by,not a problem.Only 6 miles from Stratford upon Avon, we went racing in Leicester only an hour away. Great base, wonderful Cottage. Will visit again for sure.
Big thanks to Antonia, made booking process very easy. All in all a wonderful 4 day break. You will love it.
We had a lovely time. The Cottage was clean, well equipped and only ten minutes from Stratford.
The kitchen was well stocked.
The only problem was the shower door sealing that was out of place.
A great little cottage tucked away in a very quaint village but within a stone's throw of Henley in Arden (which was a surprisingly good town) and Stratford.
The cottage is well laid out, full of character and plenty big enough for 6 guests (though the second bedroom is a bit of a squeeze so think carefully if it's for 6 adults). There is a dishwasher and tags which is a great time saver, and plenty of crockery and glasses... Even champagne flutes. It is also pleasantly decorated and quite well equipped otherwise. The hot tub is excellent and I think other reviewers have been unfair: of course it will smell of chlorine, it has to be kept clean. The instructions they send also state you shouldn't use it if you have sensitive skin or a skin condition: this is surely common sense.
The other instructions we got from the agent were also very comprehensive and useful, and although We didn't use it there was a lot of info on things to do and places to eat which is nice. We all agreed overall it was competitively priced and we would use the company/ visit the same cottage again in a heartbeat.
Bear in mind that this is not luxury accomodation and so there were a few things we thought could be better, but they were all fairly minor and didn't really affect our overall enjoyment. They were-
Quite a few bulbs were blown
All clocks had stopped
There weren't enough forks for 6
All of the dining chairs are in need of replacing (broken seats/backs/wobbly legs) but are still useable
The garden needs a good weeding
We couldn't get the heating to work/ there were no logs or a way of lighting the fire (fortunately these latter 2 weren't a big deal because we had warm weather).
We did leave a note for the owners about most of these problems so hopefully they will address them for future users. As we were only there 2 nights we didn't think it necessary to call them whilst we stayed.
I also see from previous reviews there were negative comments on the shower- this seems to have been fixed as we found it quite good.
Overall a great place to stay in an excellent location.
I stayed at Measure cottage last weekend with my girlfriend as a last minute get away.
Lovely cottage with ample space and a wonderful hot tub, the cottage is lovely inside and furnished to a high standard making our weekend extremely enjoyable.
The cottage is in a lovely, quaint village and we spent the evening in Henley-in-Arden enjoying dinner at Matricardi's restaurant, witch was also very enjoyable.
Overall wonderful weekend, excellent accommodation and reasonably priced. We will be booking the same stay again next year.
