“Unique, relaxed, comfortable and eclectic”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Location: as Stratford has grown this farm is now close to town but maintains a country feel. Follow the foot path through the field to Stratford in 10 minutes. Perfectly quiet, romantic and beautiful.
Accommodation: simple tasteful decoration in the bedroom. Unfussy, uncluttered, spotless and comfortable. Like a home from home. Roses and fresh fruit from the garden are a welcome touch. Huge bed in a large room. The bathroom was bigger than most with a stunning view over the gardens.

There is a generous sitting room and dining room which are both beautifully decorated with the owners art collection.

Breakfast: choose from cereals, nuts&seeds, organic yogurts and fresh seasonal fruit from the garden. Cooked breakfast is healthy and uses quality produce. You eat in the dining room underneath a huge chandelier, over looking views across the fields to Stratford. The table is laid with the owners eclectic mix of crockery and feels very homely.
Good to know: cash or cheque no card facility. Wifi downstairs. Parking. Separate guest entrance.
The owners are accommodating warm & welcoming. I recommend highly and will stay again the next time we visit family in the area.

Four of us stayed at peaceful Cross o Th Hill Farm in early Sept to visit the RSC. It was my second time here and we all loved it. The house is comfortable and stylish and creatively furnished by artist/host Decima who is charming and informative about the locale. The bedrooms are simply and comfortably furnished and our breakfast was wonderful - set on a long table amongst an array of lovely china and cutlery.
This is great place to use a base to explore the surrounding countryside and cotswolds and an obvious choice for the theatre.
We will be back

Such a joy to stay here for a couple of nights. Delightful rooms and first class breakfasts. And so relaxing. Pleasant walk into the town for theatre/dinner. Can't recommend too highly. We'll definitely be back.

Our first, but definitely not our last stay here. We stayed in Room 5, which was huge (with a wardrobe straight out of C S Lewis), a seriously comfortable bed and en suite with roll-top bath. The breakfast table was a work of art, and breakfast itself perfect with a selection of small fruits from the garden. There is also a large comfortable lounge and outdoor seating on the terrace to take advantage of. As others have stated the walk into Stratford was 12.5 minutes by Decima's timing and we set off with a local map with Decima's colour coding for architectural buildings, recommended places to eat and nice shops. It was lovely not to use the car for the weekend. Decima is also a font of knowledge about the regular RSC actors and recent productions. Overall a perfect weekend.

Cross O'Th' Hill Farm is a beautiful house, situated within walking distance (15 minutes) of Stratford town centre. The room we stayed in (as the rest of the house) was very lovely, decorated with flair, and had a beautiful, large, en-suite shower room. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and the owners bent over backwards to accommodate some of our rather difficult requests. This is an oasis of calm but still within easy access of the Town. Perfect.

We stayed ahead of our son's graduation this week. We had a really nice stay and the breakfast was lovely. I could not recommend it more highly!
Our room was comfortable with a good sized bathroom and a dressing room.

Reviewed 23 May 2013

We arrived here on a Friday evening stressed and very late (due to trying to get through M25 rush hour traffic and monsoon like weather)..., the hosts were both genial and calming, ordering a taxi quickly do we could get down to the theatre as soon as possible.

The house looks a little shabby chic from the outside but inside its lovely and our room (which had a little extra room with a spare bed) was large, well equipped, lovingly decorated and very comfortable.

Breakfast is taken around one large dining table but rather bizarrely the salt appeared to have gone missing and it took a while to find it!

It is a little out of town, which has the benefits that is lovely and quiet but whilst you might be able to walk in during daylight hours, I wouldn't recommend it at night!
