“Lovely relaxing country retreat”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We had a wonderful stay at North Mere. Our cottage was clean and spacious and had everything we needed. The children loved seeing the cows and chickens and playing tennis. We particularly enjoyed the walk across the fields to Kenilworth and visiting the castle. Would highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a quiet, relaxing place to stay.

“Our favourite self-catering cottage”

Great accommodation, great location, everything is great here. Unlike other cottages we used before, u don't need to pack little things like wash-up liquid, hand wash, olive oil, tea and coffee, and other little things. Broadband and mobile phone signals are just extra bonus in such rural surroundings. The only thing that is not equipped in the cottage is "washing machine", otherwise it will be perfect...

Thank you for your lovely comments. We are hoping to get a laundry room built in one of the stables next to the cottages so access to a washing machine will be easier. We hope to see you again in the future.

In the area for a wedding and three properties were used, we had the smaller middle one that housed my wife and I and our son's famile, so in total four adults and three children. Two nieces used the other proprtey and their opinions are the same as mine.
Did not see anyone fr check in but key in door and everything ready for us in a very well equipped and comfortable environment. All ws to a high standard and cleanliness exemplary.

Would use again if in area

“Lovely stay :)”
Reviewed 5 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My family and I stayed here in August 2013. We had a lovely time. The Granary is clean and well equipped and has everything you need. The only thing that was missing was a washing machine but the owners were happy to let you borrow one in the farm house (which is just next to the cottage) whenever you liked.

The location is fantastic, lots of great things to do on your door step. We would recommend St Nicholas' Park and Abbey Fields as both nearby with good facilities. Also worth a visit is Warwick Castle (but if you go in peak season leave early as the roads in get very busy, also have a look for offers as the tickets as expensive).

Overall we would definitely recommend both the accommodation and the area :).

“Skyfall”
Reviewed 6 May 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We stayed at Granary with 2 grown up children for 8 days in Feb 2013. There was snowfall on the second day and looked like skyfall . House was very comfortable. Host guided us to the house in the middle of night and was very helpful. Beds are too soft. Basket of fruits and vegetables( at nominal cost) are handy on the day of arrival. would love to come back for next holidays.

Modern, clean with excellent facilities and close to the NEC - exactly what we needed for 4 days attending Crufts! Good tasty food supplied for us too - all in all a really good experience.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 17 January 2012 for a stay in December 2011

We had a wonderful stay in The Granary over the week including Christmas. We have family in Kenilworth but it just made life easier for everyone to have our own accommodation - gave us all a bit of space.
The location was perfect, only a few minutes drive from family and the town centre, but felt like we were miles from anything it was so peaceful and quiet. We had planned to use the walking track to the castle but the recent rain meant everything was really muddy so we didn't get to try it.
Just about everything you could need is provided. The kitchen is very well equipped with all the essentials - and a few added niceties such as a coffee plunger and dishwasher. Even though The Granary only sleeps 4, there was crockery & cutlery for 8, which was great when family came to visit. There was a good selection of games and books, though we didn't have time to use any of them. We really appreciated the welcome tray with a plate of home made mince pies - yum!
The large entry foyer was great as there was plenty of room to leave outdoor shoes and muddy boots out of the living area, and the downstairs toilet was great for elderly parents and young nieces & nephews. Upstairs both bedrooms are huge with comfortable beds, plenty of storage and large ensuites with heated towel rack - very nice in winter!
The owners were friendly and helpful and we particularly appeciated being able to borrow a larger table and extra chairs from the meeting room when we had the whole family over for a meal.
There is free wifi available, and washing machines in the back entry to the main farmhouse - we only did one load of laundry and it did feel a bit intrusive letting yourslef in and out.
All garbage here is recycled into multiple different bins, boxes and bags which was a bit of a challenge sorting at the end of our stay - so a word of advice would be to locate the garbage area early and sort and deposit everything into the right bins each day.
The photos on their website of The Granary are completely accurate. We loved it here and will certainly consider staying again next time we're back visiting.
