Our high expectations, after reading reviews, were exceeded! The cottage is well equipped and comfortable, and has been refurbished to a very high standard, and tastefully furnished and decorated. Great selection of books and DVDs. The location is peaceful and very beautiful. We enjoyed lazy afternoons by the river, and appreciated the fact that the owners allow use of their summerhouse. It is very easy and quick to get into Stratford, and yet the location is set within countryside. We would definitely like to return.
Wow! This place is special! Almost don't want to post such praise in order to keep this a secret getaway!
A simply gorgeous cottage with everything you could wish for! Beautiful, well cared for and fully equipped. Enormous thought has gone into presenting this property by Marina! The bed is simply divine in its comfort. The bathroom and shower, lovely. The kitchen has totally everything you need.
Views from the bedroom and patio are pure countryside bliss. Totally back to nature. We simply loved taking the path down to the summerhouse and there we lay by the river taking in the peace and tranquillity. We had our bikes with us and enjoyed the short cycle to the nearby pub, Boars Head in Hampton Lucy, where we enjoyed great hospitality from the landlord and enjoyed a home cooked meal and real ale. Transport is needed to get into Stratford On Avon (approx 10 mins drive away) but to be honest, who wants to leave such beautiful surroundings of the cottage...... We weren't particularly impressed with Stratford Town and the crowds, but really loved nearby Bidford on Avon. We would truly recommend the Bell Tower cottage to couples looking for a romantic get away, or a retreat from every day hustle n bustle life! This would also be perfect for a single person looking for some peaceful respite ie. take a book and retreat to the summerhouse!
Incredibly idyllic! We really wanted to stay longer and can't wait to go back for more! Thank you Marina!
