“Location, location, location !!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This spacious, modern studio set above the garages of a fine home in a beautiful garden, is ideally located for visiting Stratford-on-Avon (10 minutes) or using as a base for touring those beautiful villages in the Cotswolds. (A short drive to Broadway where we had a most excellent Sunday lunch at The Swan.) The owners of the studio are very friendly and helpful - Sheelagh did a load of washing for us one day and we came home to find it dry and waiting for us when we returned. Welford-on-Avon is a delightful little village with typical English pubs - both The Shakespeare Inn and The Bell Inn are within walking distance of the studio. You can also walk to a small convenience store that is well-stocked (including wine) and a friendly butcher shop which also sells some fresh vegies and baked goods. As a person who enjoys cooking, although the kitchen is fairly well-equipped, I would have welcomed a cheese grater, egg whisk and a few mixing bowls.

“Luxury studio in beautiful setting”
Reviewed 14 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We loved staying in Orchard Lodge. Sheelagh and Alan were very good hosts, communicating very promptly before our arrival, and then greeting us and showing us around the apartment on arrival. They were a delight to meet. The studio apartment was spacious, well-equipped and very comfortable. We stayed in late October when it was quite chilly but the under-floor heating meant we were never cold.
The village is stunningly beautiful and has a few lovely pubs and a friendly convenience store. There are nice walks and it's not too far to Stratford-upon-Avon (about 10 minutes drive). We loved staying there and would highly recommend it.

“Warm welcome, great price”
Reviewed 26 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The studio is well appointed, bright and attractive. All needs are catered for. Sheelagh and Alan are just lovely. The nearby Bell Inn which Sheelagh recommended is a really excellent pub restaurant. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly - take a torch if you want to stroll there as it is very dark in the great outdoors. You will be seeing stars.

Liked best: Friendly welcome, all needs catered for.
Liked least: I banged my head on the sloping ceiling (as the walls and ceiling are the same colour it can be a little confusing. Also I'm a bit gormless)

“Perfect place to stay”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This accommodation is excellent. It is just a few miles outside Stratford upon Avon - a 5 minute drive. It is a studio flat so all one space but this makes it very spacious. It is clean and modern - lovely clean bathroom, nice kitchen. There is wardrobe space at the top of the stairs to the apartment (the photos don't show this). The owners provide towels and bedding, there were some provisions in the kitchen - such as all oil, salt, pepper etc! The village has 3 pubs, a shop, and a butcher - fish and chips Friday at the Shakespeare pub was excellent, and it is a few minutes walk down the lane from the lodge.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 2 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This apartment was everything we hoped it would be.
It was stylish and well equipped. We were made to feel very welcome and enjoyed three peaceful days.
It is close to good places to eat and drink and just a very short drive from Stratford.
We hope to stay here again in the future.

“Ideally equipped and located.”
Reviewed 26 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The extra touches - such as the friendly welcome and access to a freezer, iron and ironing board, additional day's parking - make it somewhere we would return to. Thanks very much to Sheelagh and Alan for doing such a great job of designing and fitting this studio flat. We had privacy but were made to feel were welcome on their property'.
