The Experience

Close by the timbered Tudor Old Manor House, where the family welcomes B&B guests, sits this clematis-swathed stone cottage with a new thatch bonnet, bright white 18th-century walls and attractive paned windows. This is a contemporary transformation of an old farm outbuilding but there’s nothing old hat about it with its well-equipped little kitchen: glass table and stylish white scoop chairs, heated flagged floors, Shaker-style units and a generous welcome hamper. Find freshness too in the cosy sitting room with striped armchairs, crisp floral curtains and open fire. Then up steep stairs through a little bedroom, with a single bed tucked under a window, to a pitched roof main bedroom with appealing cream furniture and a comfy bed wrapped in white cotton. Your bathroom is sparkling clean with underfloor heating and good smellies. This is a private bolthole but in no way isolated. Do take a turn around the delightful garden, glass in hand. Here, 10 minutes from Stratford and in the scented peace of Jane’s much loved rose borders overlooking the old orchard, is the essence of peaceful village life.

We stayed at the charming Old Manor Cottage for our mini-moon following our wedding in May. It was without doubt the most idyllic short break we have ever had! The cottage has been beautifully decorated and is truly unique in character. It is a very short drive from some excellent restaurants and is also close to some stunning walks. Jane and William were wonderful and warm hosts and made our stay truly special. We can't wait to return!
