Thoroughly enjoyed staying in the Hayloft Cottage. It was much bigger than expected with a lovely mezzanine bedroom over looking downstairs which was really cosy and clean. Kitchen and living area had everything we needed for our stay. The indoor pool was well kept and lovely and warm and looked like it was very recently refurbished to a high standard. The hot tub was great and had stunning views across countryside like having our own private spa all to ourselves.
Super location near to Stratford and also Warwick would deffinatly go to the castle again. The hosts were very friendly and helpful during our stay.
Look forward to staying again in the future x
We booked The Hayloft as a base to explore Stratford and Warwick fully intending to not be at our accommodation much but when the cottage is as good as this its very easy to say "y'know what, we'll just have an evening in tonight". We have both traveled worldwide extensively and appreciate a beautiful accommodation with character and charm. Beautiful place, always warm with tons of hot water for the huge bath and 100% we will be coming back.. On the down side... Nope we got nothing..
Thanks for the welcome Wendy.
We needed a place that was charming and comfortable and this place did not disappoint. We had everything we needed including a wonderful and helpful host.
We were directed to some great places to eat and visit within only a few miles and were happy with every choice.
Though the hot tub is shared, we did not have to share as it is very quiet. We only once saw others in the pool, but it was only the couple from the stables and it was not overcrowded.
I would recommend this place to a friend if they had all the same criteria as we had. Others may be unhappy that the hot tub is only open 9-6pm, the beams in the bedroom caught us both out and i have a lump on my head to prove it! The seal on the bath could do with reapplication. If that is all we have to say, it really is not bad at all!
Starting with the negatives, though very few... !
As a luxury cottage we really would have expected a dishwasher! We don't wash up at home and really didn't want to on our holiday..
The farm shop currently closed so a drive to the village store is required..
Some maintenance issues evident. e.g ..the cooker did not work. Nor did the Outside security light ... we did raise both with Wendy who to her credit did sort them ( though not immediately.. the light took two days to remedy )
Now the positives!
Fantastic location - views from the hot tub are beautiful over rolling countryside. The hot tub and indoor pool are well maintained, clean and warm. Absolute pleasure to pop into after a day exploring. A big bonus at this property.
The cottage is fairly well equipped but the best of it is the very very comfortable bed. We had a great sleep here.
Out and about the local pub, the Snitterfield Arms is a good hostelry with great food, wine and local ales.
The no 19 restaurant at ignon manor nearby is a very smart comfortable cosy restaurant and the food is very good.
I was at the cottage on my birthday and Wendy popped in with a bottle of wine and a note of apology for the minor issues we encountered.. nice gesture.
In summary, great location , fantastic views from hot tub and pool, the most comfortable bed ever ! Would I revisit? Most probably ..!
Cottage is less than 10 mins drive from stratford upon avon.
My husband and I stayed at The Hayloft for one week and it was a wonderful experience. The property is beautifully kept and very well equipped. The bed is very comfortable as well. The manager was extremely friendly and helpful. The farm shop is just a few yards away and was so nice to get fresh groceries there. The location is right between Stratford Upon Avon and Warwick, so sight seeing was very easy. I would love to stay here again.
