First impression was lovely but within minutes we discovered that it was very dark on the ground floor as the only daylight coming in was from the French doors so all of the lights needed to be on all day. It was tastefully decorated but the furniture was very tired especially the sofa ( quiet stained) also the kitchen tap dripped permanently. Hopefully you won't need to watch the tv as it only works on some channels and even those sometimes go off if you walk past the tv , the remote had duck tape holding the batteries in ( we did find the battery cover down the side of the sofa so we replaced it) most of the buttons have worn away on the remote so it was hard to know what we were doing .im not sure when the lodge last had a thorough clean as there were cobwebs and spiders everywhere also there was an empty wine bottle on the floor next to the bed ( we cleaned a lot away ) . Upstairs is very light and airy considering the size and the bed linens were lovely and clean and the furniture was perfectly acceptable. Things to be aware of in the bathroom are a very low ceiling over the sink ( we both banged our heads trying to clean teeth) not sure what the black stuff was behind the taps in the sink . Try not to open the shower screen as it looks like it's about to fall off , if you're under 5ft tall you'll be able to shower but if you're taller like us you are going to bang your head because of the slope in the ceiling ,don't touch the hot tap in the bath as it's not attached to the bath , bath doesn't drain so well so when you have a shower your feet get a bath , and the toilet seat isn't keen on staying up . Outside in the driveway it's a bit of a faf to get parked sometimes as there's lots of cars coming and going ( we think the owner runs another business from the summer house in their garden which incidentally is right opposite the not so private decked area ( feels like being behind bars and on display ) the main road past alveston lodge ( loxley road) is a racetrack for motorists so be aware when trying to pull out ! . Mrs miller seemed very nice on the couple of occasions we spoke to her and did apologise to us for us having to move our car when we couldn't get parked . Our welcome pack consisted of a loaf of bread that expired the day we arrived ( sept 1st) a pint of milk and some shortbread . We did leave a day early as we had hoped for a relaxing week but it was so noisy and dark and as my partner is recovering from cancer we had hoped to just chill but it wasn't meant to be . The pictures on cottages.com are accurate but well chosen to avoid seeing the sloping ceilings and tired furniture. We won't return to alveston lodge especially as it was almost £550 for the week , Iain Taylor Stowmarket Suffolk…
the compact "cottage" was a great base for stratford upon avon and warwickshire. However the bedrooms are small and not so bijou, the second bedroom being accessed from the first. The biggest disappointment was the water temperature. I like Hot Hot Hot when it comes to showering and a week of only just aired water was a real let down. . We did not do much in the way of cooking but the kitchen was reasonably equipped for what we did.
Your first impression of the property is very nice. But . The furniture is tired and needs cleaning,the kitchen is ill equipped ,needed to go out and buy a potatoe masher and ladle . Your decking area is very private but you will get noise from the owners children ( should have taken warning when I saw a trampoline and goal posts in the garden ). Felt we were invading someones home life. The one good thing it was very handy for Stratford upon Avon and Warwick . Mike & Julie
What a fantastic week we have just had at Alveston Pastures cottage, everything we needed even had a welcome pack which came in very handy. We had a very warm welcome, it was so nice to be near Stratford but in the countryside too. We will definitely be back.
Accommodation is lovely and very clean and comfortable and lovely views of the rolling countryside. Lovely big bedroom with a big comfortable bed. Wardrobe and draw space is plenty enough for a weeks stay. 2nd bedroom was even ideal for adults to sleep (even with the sloping roof). Bathroom very spacious and plenty of hot water. Very good location for surrounding areas, Stratford Upon Avon 5 minutes drive, Warwick Castle 20 minutes drive and Blenheim Palace 50 minutes drive all worth a visit. Lovely big market on Saturday at Wellsbourne airfield which is only a 5 minute drive. Weather was great and had a fabulous time and we will be back to stay again. Noticed comments from previous visitors and yes it is a self catering holiday, so like myself take your own bin bags and don't take advantage of the owner living next door. (if they didn't you would have to go the shop to buy your own bin bags) what is not mentioned the owner provides on arrival milk, bread, butter, biscuits and a lovely bottle of wine and also does leave an extra bin bag. Lovely owners with very good customers service. Shower does have a sloping roof but I am 5ft 6 and my partner is 6ft and we both managed fine. Some people love to moan and you can't please everyone therefore in my option it is a lovely place and well worth a visit.…
