“Lovely, comfortable B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

We were greeted with a lovely warm welcome. We had the only two rooms and enjoyed a very comfortable night with a delicious breakfast the next day looking out onto a beautiful well tended garden. I did my research and I certainly wasn't disappointed on this special trip with Mum - thank you Trip Advisor!

Last spring we stayed here overnight. We were very late arriving at Heathrow and thus very late arriving at Holly End. Our email to advise our hosts of our delay apparently went astray. Despite this we received a very warm welcome and honest concern about our travel misadventures. The White Horse Inn down the road was recommended for dinner and it was just what two weary travelers needed. Our room was a little on the small size, however, it had every thing we needed and was very clean. We were the only guests for breakfast but were still offered a great choice and what we chose was excellent. We recommend this establishment for all travelers.

Recently we (my wife and I) walked the Shakespeare Way from Stratford to Oxford. In Shipston on Stour we had the great pleasure to stay at Holly End B&B, hosted by Steve and Yvette Hunt. A wonderful place to be after a long day's hike through the English countryside. A very pleasant respite, mostly thanks to Steve and Yvette, Don't pass up an opportunity to visit them.

We had a great stay at Holly End. Our hosts, Steve and Yvette were very gracious and entertaining. They helped us plan our time in Shipston and recommended a great restaurant. The room was excellent, clean and comfortable. It was very quiet and great for sleeping. The breakfast was excellent and fulfilling. Highly recommend this B & B.

This little gem in walking distance from the village centre is well worth a visit. The owner, Yvette, does everything to make your visit perfect and the breakfast is a dream. Local produce and fresh fruit gave us a good start of the days walk. Good pubs and shops in short walking distance.

We stayed for 1 night whilst attending a friend's 40th Birthday celebrations in Shipston-on-Stour. Warm and friendly welcome from Yvette and her hubby to their family home. Cosy, clean and comfortable double bedroom with ensuite. Excellent breakfast - nothing was too much trouble. Good value - would stay again and will recommend to friends and family.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2009

We have stayed at Holly End a number of times, so I felt we really should write a review. It is very well placed, not far from either Stratford upon Avon or the Cotswolds, but more peaceful than trying to stay in any of the local tourist towns.

The bedrooms are all spacious, spotlessly clean and have lots of little extras that many guest houses leave out. The owners make us feel very welcome, and are always on hand to deal with any queries.

Breakfast is wonderful!! Yvette is a great cook and you certainly won't leave feeling hungry. Shipston has several good pubs and restaurants, so it's easy to find somewhere for an evening meal.

We would highly reccommend a visit to Holly End for anyone looking for high quality, comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price.
