Rith Chalet Cottage description

Holiday home
Situated within the medieval village of Shottery, this single story cottage within the owners' grounds gives visitors a great base within Anne Hathaway's home town. Just one mile from Shakespeare's Stratford-upon-Avon, Rith Chalet has been tastefully decorated and furnished throughout. With so much to do in the local area, this lovely little chalet offers a great base from which four people can explore the region.

Area
Occupying a peaceful setting in the rolling Warwickshire countryside, the historic village of Shottery is just over a mile from the fine market town of Stratford-upon-Avon. This pretty little location is renowned as the birthplace of Anne Hathaway, wife of William Shakespeare, and boasts a myriad of lovely thatched cottages, a welcoming inn which serves real ale and delicious food as well as another popular restaurant. The home of Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon is within easy reach and boasts not only striking architecture, shops full of character, pubs and lovely riverside walks, but also the bard's famous theatre. Nearby Kenilworth and Warwick also boast castles, the latter of which often hosts a trebuchet or jousting display in summer months. This region boasts a huge range of activities and Shottery is a great base from which to explore all that Warwickshire has to offer.

A spacious property, very secluded but only five minutes drive into the centre of Stratford upon Avon.
Mr Gregson
October 2015
Cottage is very clean, well equipped and very quiet. It's location to Stratford and the Cotswolds is very good. So an excellent place to stay, we couldn't recommend it enough.

A fabulous spacious cottage in private grounds. It is in a fantastic location, ideal for touring the surrounding areas and there was fabulous food drink at the local pub. This is a property we would gladly return to.
Mr Lloyd

This property provides first class accommodation in a very convenient location. The owners could not have been more helpful or friendly and we have already booked another week there early next year.

Huge, luxurious cottage with beautiful garden and very kind hosts. People stay in this cottage year after year because it is so nice and I hope to be back again in the warmer weather when I can really enjoy the gorgeous gardens.
Mr Chattaway
September 2014
This was a very nice property which lived up to its description. Very comfortable, easy access and a lovely garden to sit in. Very welcoming owners and would definitely recommend it as an ideal holiday property, in a beautiful area.
Miss Ridgway

Superb property, felt like it was in a rural location even though it was only a short walk from Stratford centre.
Mrs Dewar
April 2015
Rith Chalet was a particularly spacious property in a wonderful location, close to Stratford and many other tourist attractions. We received a very warm welcome from the owners, who were on hand at all times for advice and holiday tips. The 6ft wide comfortable bed was certainly a bonus. We would not hesitate to return to this property and would definitely recommend it to family and friends.
Mr Miskin

Quiet and secluded location, picturesque surroundings and easy to reach locations for days out.
Miss Brock
April 2014
The cottage was perfect! The bedroom was nice and spacious and the bathroom was clean with a bath and separate shower. Garden was beautiful and the living room was nice! My favourite part was that you can walk to Stratford upon Avon within 15 minutes and there is a pub a stones throw away from the cottage, the cottage is a great location with a fabulous Indian restaurant right up the road. We loved out stay for the week, it was perfect!!
Mrs Cairns

The cottage was in an excellent position, the owners were friendly.
Mrs Warne
June 2014
The chalet was in a lovely peaceful area and the owners were very welcoming. Lots of information about the area in a file and all the comforts of home. Short walk into the town and Anne Hathaway's cottage just round the corner.
Mrs Hurst
November 2014
This was our 2nd visit to Rith Chalet and once again we had a lovely time. The owners were very welcoming. It was very handy to leave the car and walk into Stratford upon Avon. Had a lovely garden, really enjoyed watching the squirrels.
Mrs Ramsden

The location of the property being well within walking distance of Stratford was ideal. This was our third visit and we had a great welcome from very friendly and helpful hosts. We certainly hope to visit again.
Mrs Cizo
March 2013
We only really used the chalet to sleep in and were there late at night onwards. It had a nice homely feeling and it was nice to have some books and DVDs for the end of the day, moments when you want to chill out!
Mr Rankin
August 2013
We really loved the location of the cottage and enjoyed the peace and quiet. It was great to be able to walk into Stratford and leave the car behind. We had an excellent meal at El Greco, and enjoyed coffee and cake at Carluccios. Further afield The Turks Head at Alcester is good for lunch. The cottage was beautiful and ticked all the boxes. We had a really good week even though the weather was a bit changeable.
Mr Oliver
May 2013
Our fourth visit to this property. We love the secure gated garden. Enjoyed watching the wildlife and it is so convenient for visiting so many places of interest. Close to the centre of Stratford with a good park and ride or a lovely walk to town. The owners are so welcoming, there if ever needed but not intrusive. In all the perfect holiday home.
Mr Collett
May 2013
Waking up to birdsong, the peace and tranquillity of the property. Being able to leave the car parked up and walk into town. Anne Hathaways Cottage just a short stroll away.
Mr Ash
May 2013
We have had many holiday cottages over the years but this was by some way the best, starting with the warm welcome from the owners who are some of the nicest people you could hope to meet, and continuing through every aspect of the cottage experience - from its lovely setting and outlook, perfect location for Stratford and the whole area, through to its cleanliness, comfort, privacy and charm. We really cannot recommend Rith Chalet highly enough - it was the perfect base for our holiday.
Mr Blissitt
September 2012
The cottage and gardens were excellent. The owners are a very friendly couple, who welcomed us on arrival with a nice bottle of red wine. A glass of wine on the splendid patio and relax in total seclusion.
Mr Brace
October 2012
Very pleasant, warm and spacious accommodation in a peaceful and relaxing setting but also within a short distance of the town centre and other amenities. A very warm and friendly welcome was given to us by the owners on our arrival.
Mrs Wilson
July 2013
This is our second visit to Rith Cottage, which is set in a lovely peaceful location, but only 10 minutes walk away from Stratford. The owners give you a warm welcome and are always on hand should you need anything further. The wildlife that comes into the garden is especially a great bonus this visit we were lucky enough to see foxes, woodpeckers and even a deer. To the owners, thanks very much for a lovely holiday
Mr Lloyd
May 2013
Our second visit to Rith Cottage. Again the accommodation was superb as was the welcome from the owners. The gardens were lovely, parking secure and the location just minutes from Anne Hathaway's Cottage and 20 minutes from Stratford was ideal. Great holiday that went too quickly. We will definitely return.
Mrs Ager
October 2012
The location set in very peaceful surroundings and the garden would have been so relaxing if only we had had good weather! Hope to return another year. The owners were so welcoming and helpful.
Miss Elks
October 2012
A beautiful bungalow, safe and secure and ideal for Stratford. Close to Inn and Ann Hathaways cottage. A peaceful place in walking distance of Stratford.
Mr Dawes
August 2012
Our hosts made us very welcome on arrival, they were always there to help. It is a great cottage; very spacious clean and well equipped with everything you may need. We were so thrilled with our holiday we have booked to go back in 2 months time.
Mr Wells
September 2012
Rith Chalet is the best property we have ever stayed in. The owners are great and we will definitely like a return visit. It was so peaceful and secure with the electric gates as you enter the property, and also close to lots of tourist attractions. A good pub is a 2min walk and 15 min walk into Straford. The chalet has everything you need for a wonderful stay.
Mrs Wiseman
August 2012
The owners were very friendly and helpful on arrival.

'Rith Chalet' has everything you need for your holiday. It is very comfortable, spacious, immaculately clean and well positioned for exploring the area. The owners are very welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. Good pub only a few minutes walk away.
Mrs Lewis
November 2011
This was our second visit to Rith Chalet and it was so nice to meet up with the owners once more. 'The Bell Inn' is a very welcoming establishment serving good value food. Needless to say we will be making a return visit very soon.
Mrs Brightwell
April 2012
We loved the area, quality of the property and the warm welcome from the owners.
Mrs O'Mahoney
October 2011
This was our first time booking a holiday with Sykes Cottages and we have to say Rith Chalet was a wonderful home from home. The location is perfect, within a short walking distance from Stratford Town Centre, and has a local pub serving excellent food until 10pm every day. The gardens at the chalet are vast and very peaceful, with a few squirrels playing and busying themselves all day long. The owners are lovely people and made us very welcome on arrival with a card and a bottle of wine, and we couldn't recommend this property highly enough. Thank you for finding this place for us.
Mrs Middleton-Tipper
May 2011
I would like to recommend Rith Chalet near Stratford Upon Avon. We had a lovely stay in the lovely cottage which was very spacious and well equipped. The garden area is beautiful and the owners gave us a friendly welcome. The village is a perfect location with Anne Hathaway's cottage only a 5 minute walk around the corner. Stratford was only a 15 minute walk. The local pub, which is only 1 minute away, serves very nice food and it is friendly.
Mr Oliver
October 2011
We have just returned from our third visit to the Rith Chalet. It really is the best property we have ever rented. Comfortable clean and warm well equipped. Within walking distance of Stratford on Avon and so many places of interest in a 20 mile radius. The owners are so welcoming. We have recommended Sykes and especially this property to friends and relations.
Mr Ferguson
August 2011
A lovely peaceful cottage in a great location. It's within easy walking distance of Stratford Upon Avon and near lots of attractions. Highly recommended!

Mr Lloyd

Mr Wilkinson

Very spacious, comfortable, peaceful and well equipped holiday cottage with a huge garden. A lovely welcome from the owners upon arrival. Excellent secure car parking immediately outside the cottage. An easy and pleasant walk along the public footpath into the centre of Stratford. A host of attractions within a 45 minute drive.
Mr Mrs Copper
September 2010
The owners were very welcoming - it was a pleasure to meet them. House very comfortable. The Garden was large, secluded and secure. We were able to leave the car there most of the week and walk everywhere. Only 15 minutes to Stratford town Centre. There is so much to see and do. Definitely hope to return. One of our best holidays.
Mr Scott
June 2011
It was very nice being able to walk to all of the Shakespeare houses and to see the rest of Stratford. There was also lots to see in the surrounding area ie: Cotswold villages, Warwick Castle and Blenheim Palace. We received a very warm welcome from the owners on our arrival and Rith Chalet, with its lovely garden, was very peaceful and relaxing after being out and about for the day. We would definitely return.
Mrs Mayfield
July 2011
Absolutely brilliant property to stay in. We will be booking again. This property cannot be faulted in any way. Garden great for BBQ's and watching wildlife. Great places to explore nearby on foot.
Mrs Turnbull
November 2010
The chalet was spacious and well maintained. Excellent location. Made to feel very welcome.
Mrs Lord
July 2011
This is the second year running we have booked Rith Chalet. I thought it may not be as good as the first time but it was even better. Apart from the immaculate facilities we were able to appreciate the wonderful location more and the owners are perfect hosts. At the moment I cannot see us going anywhere but Rith Chalet.
Mr Pulles
October 2010
We loved the very quiet surrounding beautiful garden and that we could park the car near the chalet very safely. The chalet lies very central - you can visit many interesting places, north south east west. You can walk to the centre of Stratford, no car needed. We had much privacy and if we needed something we asked the owners - very nice people who left a nice bottle of wine for our arrival. We will go back another time.
Ms Stedman
June 2010
It is a nice 15-20 minute walk from Stratford. Do buy the 5 Shakespeare's Houses ticket. There is a great little nursery (very cheap) at the end of the road.
Mrs Brightwell
April 2011
The cottage was lovely and the owners very friendly and welcoming. There is plenty to do and the golf courses are to be recommended.
Mrs Lord
August 2010
What a wonderful find. Rith Chalet is situated in a fantastic location and is absolutely superb. The owners were the most genuine, friendly, helpful couple and the bottle of wine left for when we arrived was very much appreciated. This is by far the best cottage we have stayed in and we will be returning next year.
Mrs Krawczyk
August 2010
The landlords were always helpful but never intrusive. There was enough space to host our sister who visited for a couple days, which was great! The back garden was lovely and huge! Security was also good, and the location was great for walking into Stratford-upon-Avon.
Ms Hurst
September 2010
Large garden and very secure. Property is in ideal position for touring. Very friendly and helpful owners. We have recommended the property to our family and we hope to return in the near future.
Ms Stedman
June 2010
A lovely cottage with a beautiful large garden. Very nice welcome from the owners. Great place to explore from and so lovely to have breakfast outside everyday. Very good size accommodation and felt very safe for our daughter to run around in the garden. Will definitely book again.
Mr Capell
May 2010
A warm welcome from the owners. A peaceful location, close to many attractions. Plenty of wild life in the garden like foxes, pheasants and squirrels. We had a lovely time!
Mr Merrison
April 2010
The chalet was very well presented and we had a warm welcome from the owners who were close at hand. We felt very comfortable and were left alone to enjoy this peaceful spot. The chalet is well located for visiting local attractions - walking distance from the centre of Stratford and a short drive from the Cotswolds. All in all I'd have no hesitation in recommending this modest but well-appointed, surprisingly spacious one-bedroom property for a short holiday.
Mr Newport
December 2009
The view and wildlife when sat in lounge, and a peaceful location.
Mr Miller

A great, relaxing, quiet and very comfortable holiday, as always!
Mrs Buckle
August 2010
Very secluded and quiet. We found the owners very welcoming and accommodating. We regularly stay in the Cotswolds/Stratford area and would rank Rith Chalet as one of the best accommodations we have had. Very convenient for Stratford and other areas of interest in the Heart of England.
Mr Clarkson
November 2009
In a lovely area, close enough to amenities but remote enough to be quiet.
Mrs Brightwell
June 2010
The warmth and friendliness of the owners, the chalet was particularly well kitted out and the garden was huge. Having a secure entrance was very comforting. There was plenty to do in the area, but having the peace of the chalet to come back to was very welcome.
Mr Hevicon
September 2009
Quiet, relaxing and comfortable accommodation. An excellent location with easy access to the centre of Stratford. Made very welcome by the owners of the Chalet.

Beautiful garden. Squirrel watching was addictive and we saw a fox once. 15 minute stroll into Stratford was very pleasant and all flat. We would love to come again.
Mr Mrs Pickering

Mr Wilton

This is the best property we have stayed in and we have stayed in many cottages. The property and grounds we would recommend to any couples looking for a relaxing holiday.
Mrs Blake
June 2009
Rith Chalet is set in a lovely location. The property is situated a short walk from Stratford Upon Avon which meant we could do a lot of exploring of Stratford on foot. It's close to Warwick Castle which is a must see and the lovely villages of the Cotswolds are not far away. The Bell pub is a few minutes walk away and they serve really good food.
Mr Hodge
May 2009
This cottage is superb in every respect and has a magnificent garden often visited by foxes and squirrels. The 10 minute walk into Stratford is along a very pleasant footpath and the local pub (The Bell), 5 minute walk, serves good food at reasonable prices. Anne Hathaway's cottage is also just 5 minutes walk and well worth a visit. We were given a very good welcome by the owners, including a bottle of wine!
Mr Mrs Topping
May 2009
The standard of the property was in general excellent. The setting was very peaceful and it was wonderful to be able to watch the wildlife in the huge garden, we saw the fox almost every night! The owners were very friendly without being intrusive and the location was ideal for seeing the Cotswolds. We would definitely return.
Mrs O'Gorman
September 2009
What a beautiful property in a fantastic location. Rith Chalet has everything you could ask for and more. Good local pub and a lovely walk into Stratford Upon Avon. Brilliant holiday all round.
Mr Mrs Mylie
October 2009

Mr Burr
October 2009
A beautiful quiet location with comfortable accommodation. The owners are a lovely, warm and friendly couple.
Robert
December 2009
We received a very warm welcome from the owners who lived just to the rear of the cottage in a beautiful house. Both properties stood in private grounds very close to Anne Hathaway's cottage. The cottage was spacious, nicely furnished and decorated and had everything required for a comfortable stay. It is possible to walk into the centre of Stratford on a very nice flat and easy path, taking approximately 15 minutes, which means of course that there is no problem with parking. There is a pub just 5 minutes walk away which serves good food at reasonable prices. There is an abundance of eating places at all prices in Stratford. Most of the historical places of interest are within walking distance, although some can be expensive. Whilst staying here, we visited Bath, Oxford and Warwick Castle (highly recommended !) and also did some walking in the Black Mountains near to Brecon. This is by far the best cottage we have stayed in, in every respect, and I cannot think of anything that we didn't like. I would unreservedly recommend this property.
Miss Bowe
August 2009
I was very impressed by the high standard of Rith Chalet. It was conveniently situated very close to Stratford, actually within walking distance and there were so many places to visit. The owners gave us a very warm welcome and made us feel at home straight away. I thoroughly enjoyed the holiday and would recommend it to anyone.

April 2015
Rith Chalet is a very spacious holiday cottage with exceptionally large rooms and a comfortable 6 foot bed, providing everything we needed for a very enjoyable week's holiday. The hosts (Jim and Tina) gave us a very warm welcome and were always on hand for local advice if required. It was very conveniently placed for exploring the area. I am sure we will return to this accommodation in the future, as it is one of the best cottages we have experienced. We would not hesitate to recommend it to family and friends.
suebri2015
June 2015
Rith Chalet is extremely well set up and provided spacious holiday accomodation which met our requirements perfectly. Within easy walking distance of Stratford, just around a corner from Anne Hathaways cottage and a local hostelry The Bell which provides tasty pub grub at a reasonable price. Well located for a variety of National Trust properties as well as within easy reach of many lovely Cotswold villages and towns. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to our family or friends. The hosts Jim & Tina were welcoming and friendly, helpful if we needed information but not intrusive in any way.

Stayed here in September and cannot recommend the cottage enough. The owners were so friendly and welcoming and the bottle of wine was much appreciated. The cottage is so well located, being close enough to Stratford to walk in and having a very nice pub within 2 minutes walk as well. We visited more National Trust houses that you could shake a stick at and had a saw a fabulous production of Much Ado About Nothing at the Courtyard Theatre. This area has such a wealth of attractions and gorgeous countryside. Really enjoyed our stay.
Mr Miller

Mrs Russell

The setting was wonderful, very quite yet minutes from the main town. Lovely property with great garden. The owners were very friendly and made us feel very welcome, a lovely touch was the welcome card and bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival. Will definitely return and recommend it to friends and family - super!!
Mr Mrs Tiffany
August 2009
The location of the cottage was ideal; being in a peaceful location with beautiful gardens which made for a lovely relaxing break. The promixity to Stratford was ideal; being just 15 mins. pleasant walk through the park. The cottage itself was really lovely with every comfort you might need; and is a credit it to the owners. We would have no hesitation in highly recommending this property to anyone.

This was our second stay at Rith Cottage and it will not be our last. The cottage is warm,comfortable,clean and very quiet. It's 200 metres from a pub that do meals and its location is a 25 minute walk into Stratford. The owners are very nice people to deal with and can't do enough for you,they even welcome you with a bottle of wine.

Excellent 5 star accommodation with everything you could possibly need, within walking distance of Stratford. Tina and Jim made us feel very welcome. Would recommend to anyone wishing to visit the area.
Emma W
August 2015
I would have to say this Chalet was almost perfect. The location was excellent for the Stratford area and good for going further afield too. The owners were very friendly and even left a bottle of wine for us! The only downfall was the lack of wifi/internet, it would of been nice to have been able to of checked certain areas and directions online of place that people had advised to see on our travels. This place was very peaceful and a pleasure to come back to at the end of the day, so nice I will hopefully go back next year!

Our second stay and again very enjoyable. The owners Jim & Tina are very friendly and welcoming and the cottage very comfortable with a smashing king size bed. The village is a 15-20 minute walk into the centre of Stratford so is ideal for leaving the hassle of parking behind. There is a very good village pub (The Bell) and of course plenty to do nearby. All in all a very good experience

We've stayed near Stratford a few times, always opting for a village location to allow us to avoid the hustle and bustle of the town itself. How we wish we'd found Rith Chalet sooner!! An an excellent cottage in an amazing location...The cottage is generously sized, immaculately clean and well equipped, located in attractive, substantial grounds. Plenty of safe off road parking. Views over the lovely garden, with patio furniture. A beautiful quiet spot to relax and unwind. Better than this you get the best of both worlds...if you want to go to the theatre or enjoy the central Stratford attractions and restaurants etc they're all yours in a pleasant 10 minutes walk. Jim and Tina, the owners, provided a warm and friendly welcome, with excellent recommendations and tips on the local area. We stay in holiday cottages 4-5 times per year and Rith Chalet has definitely just joined our small and select list of favourites, we'd definitely recommend and go back.

We toured Ireland and UK so choose lodging within walking distance from bus or train stations. Rith Chalet was one of the best of 4 cottages we rented for a week each. A slight bit out of town but within walking distance. Three large rooms with excellent facilities. Very quiet, facing a large lawn. It can be a little difficult to find so call the owners for help. Google map did not located the apartment. The host was extremely friendly and helpful.

I like the electric metal front gates, made us feel secure, also while my son runs around in the extensive lawn I don't need to be there with him like while I'm cooking. Parking is the space next to the glass doors, within the compound, very safe. I like the glass doors, it brings the garden in while you're sat in the living room, same for the kitchen. The chalet is newish, clean, spacious and beautifully presented. The owners Jim and Tina are kind and warm, even lent my son a football because we forgot to bring his. Shottery is a quiet village, perfect for getting away from the city.The chalet is just 5 mins walk from Anne Hathaway's cottage and about 20 mins walk to the high Street of Stratford upon Avon through a leafy path, so we never brought the car to town, and had never to worry about parking and time. Four days of the week we explored the North and central Cotswold, the farthest, Bourton on Water was just 45 mins drive from the chalet. The little villages were quintessentialy English and not touristy. The market towns are charming. And everywhere walking among houses of the honeycoloured Cotswold stones is a feast for the eyes and soul.
Kermit28
July 2015
Our second stay within 12 months. Rith chalet is still as good as we remembered it. Immaculately clean and well equipped with everything you could need. The garden was fantastic, brilliant to sit out and enjoy the sunny evenings. Jim and Tina are lovely hosts, always such a friendly welcome yet unobtrusive. The cottage fully deserves its five star reviews, there's nothing we'd change. As others have said, it's an easy walk into Stratford, with its array of amenities, theatre, shops, pubs. Having found Rith chalet we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in this area.

We were pleased to meet the owners again;they were as charming and welcoming as they were the first time we stayed. The location of the cottage was just right,being within easy walking distance of the town but affording access to surrounding areas while avoiding town traffic. The accommodation and equipment were of the highest quality and finally we are hoping to have the opportunity return again very soon.

What a truly beautiful place to spend a couple of days. The chalet is a prefect place to stay a home from home, Jim and Tina are a wonderful couple, Lovely little touches like the bottle of wine and the card for us, and making our little boy really welcome make this place extra special. Our six year old loved the chalet, and the wildlife, and being in charge of the electric gates of course and we were all quite sad to leave. There is nothing they haven't thought of, Everything you could think of is supplied. Will definitely be returning here again and have already told all my family about it. Thanks Jim and Tina for everything.

We have stayed in many holiday cottages over the years, but Rith Chalet stands out as the best. A lovely experience, starting with the warm welcome extended by the owners and continuing right through to every aspect of the holiday cottage experience. All the essentials are there par excellence - cleanliness, comfort and equipment - but added to those are its lovely setting and open outlook (plenty of wildlife to observe) and its convenience for Stratford upon Avon (a short walk down a pleasant footpath to the town centre). A beautifully thought out cottage, backed by owners who really care, it was the perfect base for our holiday. Hugely recommended.

My husband and I have recently returned from our second week staying in Rith Chalet. Yet again nothing has disappointed us. Rith Chalet, with its spacious grounds, is peaceful and relaxing. You can always guarantee a warm welcome from the owners. We have enjoyed Shakespeare's county and travelling further afield to the national trust houses. Hopefully, we will be returning again at Easter for another welcoming break in this great little cottage.

Great place to stay very friendly and the chalet was of the highest standard. Just a short walk from Statford town centre and all its amenities

Rith Chalet was the best cottage we have ever stayed in. It was immaculate and had every comfort needed to enjoy a holiday. The situation was perfect as it was so quiet and private. It felt like being in one's own grounds complete with squirrels and fox. We have booked to go next summer and have already recommended the accommodation to friends

Very spacious and comfortable, and warm, especially important as most days we were there the temperature was way below freezing. Welcome card and wine were a thoughtful finishing touch.15 minute walk to town centre.Great pub for meals 2 minutes walk away. Cottage itself very well equipped with lovely garden views. We hope to go again later this year.Ideal for Stratford, warwick and Cotswolds a real find.

Rith Calet is one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in, spacious,spotlessly clean and well equiped and maintained well and in a good location for exploring the area. Plenty of National Trust properties in the area.The owners were wellcoming but not intrusive. Local pub a few minutes walk away good for meals.

The cottage is well equipt and it is always nice to find a bottle of wine to welcome you. Tina and Jim are very willing to help and offer advice about local site and tourist attractions. The gated garden is large and secure, with an abundance of wide life. Ann Hathaways cottage is within walking distance and the local pub is even closer serving very good food. We will be going again.

Having stayed in various cottages in locations in England and Wales this is by far the most well equipped and clean cottage we have ever stayed in. We were made to feel very welcome by Tina and Jim on arrival who were very friendly and the cottage is also in an excellent location for visiting many lovely places. Excellent holiday and im sure if Tina and Jim could have booked the weather for us they would have done this as well Thank You John, Lyn and Gemma, Great Yarmouth
