A close pair of holiday cottages near Stratford Upon Avon! The Dairy has been excellent for us over the past 7 days. As a family, we found the location near Stratford Upon Avon to be excellent. With the holiday cottage in mind, the bedrooms are in fabulous condition, as well as the lounge. Although the TV tends to lose signal sometimes and the Wifi is slightly dodgy, there is a great option next door in the laundry room, which has a basket full of games to play in the garden/recreational area of the cottage. I had actually forgotten my clock on the holiday, and thanks to the close location of Stratford Upon Avon, I was able to pick up another one at Amazon Locker (Twinkle) the very next day. The owners of the cottage are also very nice.
I would highly recommend this cottage!
Just returned from a week staying at the Dairy. Brilliant location about 3 miles from Stratford, ideally placed for touring all the attractions in the county. Numerous National Trust and English Heritage properties close by. The cottage was well equipped with everything you could need, including a shared laundry room with a freezer. Very comfortable bed, which was a bonus. Lawned area outside the cottage which would be a safe place for children to play. Nice outdoor seating to enjoy the country views. Very friendly owners who gave us a warm welcome and provided eggs and milk to start us off. One mile to the nearest pub - lovely meals. Waitrose is about 2 miles on the main road into Stratford. We would highly recommend this cottage.
This is the second time we have stayed here. Delightful location and very tranquil. Perfect with all the lambs about.
The only negative is the chronically slow wifi. My email wouldn't even download without timing out. If you need a digital detox, this should be your first choice destination.
As other reviewers have said, milk and eggs are a welcoming provision! But bring your own tea-bag(s) or coffee if you want one on arrival before you go shopping.
The building is L-shaped, and includes the utility room, the Roost cottage and the owner's cottage.
My elderly mother found the level-floor easy to manage. The owners are most caring - first morning, Jean even asked if I was warm enough, and provided a warmer duvet for me.
Her elderly husband Robert works with his Son Andy on the farm - amazing to see them organising the sheep to take them to other pastures, as was their loading a large lorry with many tons of corn for transport!
Parking is across the lawn in front of the cottages.
My mother's disability scooter needed charging overnight, but couldn't get the van near the Dairy. So, Jean kindly let me drive near their own utility room to do so.
A few minor niggles: noisy fridge, dark lounge corner (where round dining table is, their photos must have been taken with good flood lights), dripping/worn sink mixer tap.
Bedside clock in double bedroom changed time during night – I wondered why there was so much daylight for only “5am”! (All niggles discussed with owners son Andy before departure)
This is a well presented cottage, with 1 double bedroom and 1 bedroom with 2 single beds. Fully equipped kitchen added bonus of a shared utility room with freezer, washing machines and tumble dryer. Welcoming owner on site. Arriving to find milk, eggs and mince pies was a lovely touch. Our only negatives were that we found the beds to soft for our liking and the water / central heating boiler was extremely noisy. Although not marketed for the disabled it would be suitable for the less mobile with the exception of a steep step into the cottage. The cottage would an excellent base for exploring Stratford Upon Avon and surrounding area.
