Highcroft description

Holiday home
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.

Stratford-upon-Avon is steeped in history and culture and is set in the beautiful Warwickshire countryside, on the banks of the River Avon. The birthplace of William Shakespeare, Stratford is a popular tourist destination, featuring the world renowned Royal Shakespeare Company.

Visitors to the Cotswolds have long treasured memories of charming towns and villages built from the famous honey-coloured stone, it now boasts a thriving community of contemporary artists working from studios and shops throughout the area.

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.

It had great character and facilities, the kids couldn't keep off the tennis court. Would love to stay again.

The house was cosy and beautiful. There was everything we needed and more and it was clean. We would definitely return to the house for another trip.

An absolutely lovely house which I'd recommend without any hesitation. Everything about it was exactly right and the gardens and tennis court were especially appreciated.

An excellent location and the facilities were superb for the children. The grounds were beautifully maintained. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed all that Stratford upon Avon had to offer, including the theatre, the river, the Mad Museum and the excellent children's playground.

This property was much better than we imagined. When the sun was out we sat out on the patio area and when it got a little cooler the big lounge room was fantastic!

In a great location and the house was big enough for us all. Had easy access to Stratford, good for dog walks and generous gardens. It was a well equipped cottage with the feel of a family home - oh yes and a tennis court!

Had an amazing time. We were celebrating a family members birthday and the size and location was great for all ten of us to get together. Lovely weekend.

Very clean and comfortable. Plenty of space and loads of crockery etc. The owner was helpful and friendly and even provided us with home made scones and jam one afternoon!

Property is situated just outside Stratford, which is a bustling town with a big traffic problem, so being a mile or two away helped make our stay more peaceful than being in Stratford itself. The facilities at the house are first rate, lovely HD television, WiFi and the house has lots of character; the Aga cooker is a real treat. The garden is bigger than you might expect, with a small and safe trampoline, and the tennis court was enjoyed by young and old(er) alike. Plenty of car parking.

Lovely, comfortable house, a home-from-home. The owners were so friendly, welcoming and most helpful. The garden was a delight, with wider grounds to enjoy as well. All in all, a wonderful holiday location; lots to do in the locality to suit all tastes with a beautiful, well-equipped and relaxing base to come back to. Can't praise it enough!

The holiday let was just right for our particular needs, the garden was a delight; the trampoline a winner with the kids also the tennis court proved a great draw with young and old. The cosy kitchen lovely and the open fire a holiday treat in the evening.

Location excellent. Children's facilities excellent. The garden was beautiful. We would happily recommend this property.
May 2015
A wonderful, safe, self-contained, well-provisioned family home which was very obviously just that (a family home) and has retained that feel through the transition to holiday let. Lovely garden and grounds; very exciting to have the tennis court; trampoline loved by the kids. Super convenient for Stratford and a Waitrose only five minutes away. Owners very friendly and helpful. I couldn't recommend this place more.
November 2015
Great for groups and kids. Spacious rooms everywhere.The Aga supplied cosiness and warmth. Highly recommended. Scones on arrival. Very clean and tidy. Plenty of kitchen cupboards to store supplies. Would be even better in the spring/summer when you could use the tennis court fully.

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.

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.

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