"Perfect holiday rental"

Harpe Cottage was incredibly charming and lovely. The size was perfect for two, and the cottage had everything we needed. It was wonderfully decorated and we loved the wood stove. The crazy old stairs up to the second floor bedroom were a bit hard to negotiate, but they were so charming and showed how old the place was, unlike the super modern and clean kitchen and bathroom, which were wonderful. The back porch was nicely landscaped and a welcome place to sit in the afternoon with a glass of wine. Wilmcote was nicely located for a lot of great walking, including a very nice one we did right from the door.
