Imagine staying in this fascinating and quaint romantic 17th century cottage, as featured on ITV television and recently considered by the BBC as a location for the detective drama series 'Shakespeare and Hathaway'.

Gorgeous cottage a few minutes walk from Anne Hathaway's Cottage Everything you could possibly need when self catering, set in a beautiful quaint listed building. Loved the outdoor space too, and the secret garden, we were lucky to have good weather, so a perfect find.

Management response:

The cottage is in a nice location. However it is not very well maintained inside and looks very tired. The big issue was the incredibly strong smell of stale smoke. As three non smokers we found this really unpleasant. The cleaners must have noticed this but left it and said nothing. After a weekend of leaving doors and windows open...

Management response:

Whilst 'babies in arms' are welcome we do not recommend the cottage for toddlers or young children aged under around 6 because the ancient stairs are narrow and steep.
