Just returned from a very relaxing mid week break at shakespeare holiday cottages in Warwick shire. The location was perfect, close to Stratford-upon-Avon and Henley-in-Arden, perfect for all things literary if that's for you or great to just relax in the local Henley spa. The accommodation was perfect, everything you needed was there it was very comfortable and clean with nice little details such as welcome biscuits on arrival. The proprietor Antonia was very helpful and on hand to deal with any small problems. The cottage (Juliette cottage was the one we were in) was so comfortable that we barely bothered with experiencing the surroundings but we did find some great eating establishments around, in particular the Mary Arden. All together a very pleasant and relaxing break and we will definitely be going back but perhaps for a longer stay next time!.
We stayed in Juliet cottage for 4 nights in August 2008, with our two small children. It was a delightful cottage, with excellent facilities, and pleasant surroundings, easily within reach of both Stratford (10-20 mins) and Warwick (30-45mins - we enjoyed the castle there!). Travel cot provided and good quality.
Highly recommened. Only small thing we would also have enjoyed would have been a caffetiere!

We stayed in Juliet Cottage for a week in mid July 08. The cottage is very well equipped with washing machine, full cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer and the all important dishwasher! All the little things were there also like dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, tea, coffee etc. which was great as it is really good not having to bring these small but essential items with you. The cottage was clean and tidy when we arrived and Antonia gave a much appreciated warm welcome. Just mind your head upstairs at certain points as the sloping ceiling can get you!
The cottage has a great location being very handy for Stratford itself but we also visited the surrounding area culminating in a trip to Blenheim Palace.
If returning to this area we would definately consider using Shakespeare Holiday Cottages again as the standard of accommodation provided is very good.
Myself and my partner enjoyed a great weekend in Juliet cottage, finding the beds super comfy and the atmosphere very relaxing. The whole cottage is beautifully done and in a good position for exploring the surrounding countryside. This can also be enjoyed from the bedrooms which have great views. A fantastic place for a holiday!
Wanted to stay in Stratford for a few days as it somewhere that I have always just passed through and not taken time to explore. Searched various websites and by a process of elimination decided upon Juliet Cottage. From start to finish this proved to be a very good choice. From first speaking with Antonia about the bookng until leaving after a four day stay we were looked after very well. The two main things to recommend Shakespeare Cottages are Antonia's excellent hosptiality and the standard of the accommodation.
Nothing was too much trouble for Antonia, from greeting us on the first day until saying goodbye she was very helpful. I happened to mention that we may be stopping off at a theme park on the way home and she was able to give personal recommendations and also supply details of the parks.
The accommodation is of a very high standard throughout. Location is also very good as long as you have your own transport, with a 5 minute drive to the town centre and also with a number of very good pubs and restaurants in the surrounding area; Antonia provided some very good recommendations.
All in all a relaxing and enjoyable four days.
