Superb cottage, a real gem. Nothing was too much trouble for the 5 star hosts.

A cosy hideaway with a log fire, close to Stratford with its many attractions. Friendly and helpful hostess.

The Bothy is in a great location for exploring Stratford Upon Avon and the surrounding area. Stratford Upon Avon has plenty of things to see and do and fantastic places to eat.

The cottage was in a nice location close enough to town without being too close. It was comfortable and functional with good off road parking.

Lovely relaxing cottage in beautiful grounds including a tennis court. Wonderful location for our dog to explore and lots to do and see in surrounding area. Stratford is great for food and drink and a fantastic place to visit.

Lovely welcome to ourselves and Bob (dog) from the owner. Very convenient for shops, tourist attractions and the countryside. We found a lovely walk and parkland area and Bob was happy. We would recommend this cottage to anyone for one or two people with a well behaved dog.

The owners of The Bothy were extremely welcoming and helpful. We were given home-made scones upon our arrival and they were always happy to answer any questions we might have. The location of the property is ideal for those who are a quite active. The best way to get into town (Stratford-Upon-Avon) is to cycle, which takes about 15 minutes. There are also lots of lovely country walks and cycle routes in the surrounding area.

We loved the homemade cakes and wine on arrival, we thought this was a lovely touch. With a very old dog we thought the open plan and all on one level was perfect. The property is quite small looking but ideal space for a couple and a dog. The grounds felt quite safe for the dog to wander around and it was nice having the owners just next door if you did need anything. The log burner in the evening was lovely with endless wood and coal. The property is very close to Stratford etc; it was a great location for us. The kitchen was very well equipped. Lovely stay and very friendly owners so we hope to return.

It was lovely to be met personally and with handmade scones and jam. The owner was very helpful letting me know where the walks were for my dog with maps - very friendly.

The Bothy was in the perfect place for Stratford. Th scones and jam we received on arrival was a nice touch.

It was a small but perfectly formed apartment and the owner was most welcoming indeed. We really look forward to returning at some future date, hopefully in the sunshine!

This is a lovely little cottage. Just right for a couple to escape to to enjoy a nice holiday. Stratford on Avon is only a short drive away so the Bothy is ideally placed.

I enjoyed taking early morning walks before coming back to the barn to start the day and the wood burner was lovely.

Superb little cottage with bags of character!

Having got married in Sept 2014 we spent our first New Year as husband & wife at The Bothy, but left after three nights instead of the five we had booked. The property is cosy and is ideally located in lovely countryside very close to Stratford. However it was difficult to use the shower due to the restrictions of the sloping ceiling. Similar problems are experienced using the wc while standing! BUT the main problem was the fridge which kept us awake at night for two nights. It is difficult to imagine how it could be so loud. On the third night we turned it off and ruined the food we had brought with us - so we headed home. Other guests had noted the problem with the fridge in the guestbook but this had seemingly been ignored. So do enjoy your stay, but check that they've changed the fridge before you book...

The three of us (including dog) had a lovely relaxing time here. Very friendly and helpful owners. Nothing too much trouble. Great base to visit Bourton-on-the-Water, Moreton in Marsh, Chipping Norton, Bicester. Couldn't visit everywhere on our list because of the dog, but Birdland (Bourton) allowed dogs on leads. Would visit again.

This is great find, very well converted, cosy, well equipped and full of character. It makes a very peaceful base to explore the area
June 2013
The Bothy was a wonderful, small but perfectly formed, retreat which simply demanded that we relaxed. Both us and the dog were welcomed with a friendly offering of freshly baked cake and a bottle of wine - not that the dog got any of that of course! The whole conversion was well planned out and 'luxury living in a small space'. It just did not feel cluttered even though the kitchen area, living area and bed space are all in one. Upon leaving I managed to leave my engagement ring on the windowsill but the owner soon retrieved it and posted it safely back to me. We will definitely be going back there again and it would be brilliant if the weather was as welcoming as the Bothy!
