This delightful, semi-detached cottage sits two miles from Stratford-upon-Avon, sleeping ten people in five bedrooms.

Highcroft is a charming, semi-detached cottage, one of two holiday properties set in the grounds of the owners' home, located two miles from Stratford-upon-Avon. With five bedrooms including two king-size doubles (one with an en-suite bathroom), plus two twins (one on the ground floor), and one single with pull-out stacker bed, this cottage can sleep ten people. There's also a bathroom, a ground floor cloakroom, a kitchen with dining and utility area and a sitting room with open fire. Outside is off road parking for four cars, plus a private, enclosed lawned garden with patio, furniture and BBQ and shared use of two acres of wildlife garden and a tennis court. Highcroft offers large groups of friends and families a character base from which to discover nearby, delightful Stratford-upon-Avon, along with the surrounding beautiful countryside of the Cotswolds.


RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Old world feel but overall a little disappointing
We recently stayed at Highcroft for a 70th birthday celebration. The house/cottage itself is very large with an 'old world' feel. The first impression is one of a home from home with a cosy feel although the aga does mean a very warm kitchen throughout the summer. The home made scones are a nice touch on arrival. The overly personal items such as family passports in the drawers left us feeling as though we were slightly intruding on someone's space. The older members of the group loved everything about the house and the furniture was exactly what they like. Unfortunately, those of us with children were concerned about several safety issues; the rugs that slipped, the glass greenhouse in the garden, the wobbly chairs, no locks on Windows etc The grounds were lots of fun with swings, slide etc being used a lot by the children. Again unfortunately the safety padding on the trampoline didn't fit so we didn't use. The tennis court was a great addition and the children loved playing here. On arrival we were setting up the rooms ready for the rest of family to arrive when we discovered the roll away single bed was broken with one set of the legs not working. We phoned the owner who did not see a problem with this and suggested one of the children sleep on the floor, this is not what you expect. We specifically booked a house for ten, there were ten people so we needed beds for 10. We lost all confidence in the owner sorting this issue and sorted a put up bed ourselves. Not what you expect! Lots of games, jigsaws, racquets and even a rocking horse but overall this would suit groups of older visitors and not ones with small children.

The cottage was everything we needed and a lot more. Couldn't fault the location and the grounds were immaculate.

A lovely homely large house, perfectly suited to house our guests celebrating a special birthday. The tennis courts were a bonus. There was a lovely atmosphere to it all.

Such a great atmosphere to the cottage, it was just far enough outside of the town that you could enjoy the birds. Plenty of things for the young and old to do at the cottage, we particular loved playing tennis and my niece loved the trampoline.
