Our holiday cottage is peacefully situated just outside Stratford upon Avon, in rural village of Wilmcote. Built and furnished to the highest specification, in a contemporary style, yet retains a wealth of charm and character. The lovely Spanish style family bathroom has a bath and a separate large luxurious shower. There is a spacious and very well equipped kitchen with quality appliances including oven, ceramic hob, washing machine and dishwasher. Beautiful porcelain tiles cover the whole of the ground floor(with cosy underfloor heating) and combined with the skylights and abundant glazing, gives the cottage a lovely light and airy atmosphere.
At the rear of the cottage is the lounge/dining area with vaulted ceiling, spanned by a beautiful oak beam where you can relax on stylish, modern and high quality sofas. Here, light streams in through the large pyramid shaped patio doors leading to your own private south-facing patio, complete with BBQ and garden furniture.
Upstairs, there is stunning mezzanine bedroom, accommodating a King sized bed with fine cotton bed linen.
There is ample off road parking available for guests.
Please note that we also have a separate bed and breakfast room with ensuite and a double bed (as shown in one of the pictures) which could be used in conjunction with our holiday let, should you wish to stay with another couple or friend.
