“An idyllic location for a peaceful break.”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The lodge on the bend in the river is in one of the best locations you could find for a peaceful and quiet getaway. It is far enough away from the Crowds of Stratford but close enough to visit the theatre, shop and sightsee. As for the cleanliness, facilities and spaciousness of the lodge, it can not be faulted. I certainly aim to return.

“Wonderful setting”
Reviewed 29 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

What an idyllic setting by the river in a spacious, clean and inviting lodge.
We will definitely be booking again.
Had a lovely walk into Stratford and just relaxed for the whole weekend.
It definitely made us forget the pressures of work!

“Nature and tranquillity at its best”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

person found this review helpful

I stayed in the lodge three times now with my young son and elderly parents. It is idyllic. Its location is perfect - you are greated every morning by the cows behind in the field , the ducks, swans and the most amazing array of bird life. Being so near the Avon is also so relaxing. The perfect place to read, run and see the delights of Stratford easily accessible by road or water taxi. The lodge is fully equipped you want for nothing at all. It truly is home from home. You are a short walk away from a local convenience store on the opposite side of the river and lovely public house for local quisine- cooking faclities in the lodge are however really all you need. There is also a new bar and restuarant to be used on the caravan park over the bridge - this is enjoyed by some but to us it is an eye sore - service was also poor - saying that you have no need to visit it as there are so many far beeter places to visit. Would highly recommend and will defitnely visit again. For my parents peace and tranqulity for my young son a place with loads of adventures and fishing. The most friendly locals just add to it!

“Couldn't ask for anymore.”
Reviewed 13 January 2014 for a stay in November 2013

The location of this Lodge is magical. My daughter was entertained by all the wildlife there is to see and loved watching all the birds. It's a very relaxing and peaceful spot

It i easy enough to get into Stratford where there is plenty to do for children,including a big adventure playground and lots of open space to run in.

The lodge has everything you could possibly want when staying away from home. We wanted to stay longer, and we will be going back :)

“Very nice spot on the River Avon, enjoyed our stay”
Reviewed 3 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed for 4 nights over New Year with my partner and two children under 10. We all enjoyed a wonderful peaceful break by the River Avon. I thought the lodge was extremely well equipped, the double bed was very comfortable. The weather was pretty awful throughout but we enjoyed staying in, watching DVDs/TV and cooking. It was warm and cosy with controllable heating . . .The site itself seems to be virtually closed down at this time of the year and there were very few people around . . .hence it was particularly peaceful, which is what we wanted. Stratford is nearby and so too is Tiddington which we walked to over the nearby footbridge across the Avon. I would definitely stay at Bend in the River Lodge again . . .
