“Beautiful country getaway”
Reviewed 19 September 2013 for a stay in June 2013

My family and I flew from Western Australia for a family wedding in Birmingham. We didn't want to stay with relatives as there was six of us including two small kids. We found Shakespeare holiday cottages online, and it sounded perfect as a base for us to come and go as we wished. Set off a country road in a rural setting, Hamlet cottage was one amongst several in the group. Even though we had 'neighbours', we never heard them, and the cottage itself was perfect for our needs. Half way through our stay, we had an angel of a cleaning lady come and give the place a whizz through and changed sheets and towels, which was lovely to come back to. We were given lots of useful info and directions about the area, and direct routes to get to the cottages, as they are not easily visible without them! The local taxi man was also recommended to us and he was a star!! I would recommend Shakespeare cottages very highly as it is perfect from a weekend getaway or much longer stays (three weeks in our case!). There are different cottages to house different group sizes, just choose the one that fits your group best! We were very happy while we were there and we will definitely use Shakespeare cottages again next time we come to the UK, and I give them a big double thumbs-up for the care and attention we received. Fantastic holiday cottages ran by a fantastic team!!!! :)

“Hamlet cottage - excellent clean, well equipped holiday home”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Just returned from a weekend staying at the cottage. The cottage was very clean, very well equippped and location wise it was ideal for those wishing to visit Stratford - as it's only a few miles from the city centre. The letting company Shakespeare holidays , especially Antonia, provided a very professional service with excellent e mail/ text/phone communication . Although the cottage is adjoined on either side we were not disturbed by noise through the walls at all. Infact, we shared drinks on Sat eve and enjoyed getting to know all our neighbours ! We would definitely consider a return visit

“Very clean and convenient for Royal Shakespeare Theatre”
Reviewed 19 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We stayed two nights at this cottage and found it to have been a very good choice for us. We are a family of five so two of our children had to share the sofa bed but they said it was fine!
Cottage was clean, very convenient for the theatre and had private parking right at the door step. It was easy to find too.
Antonia the owner/manager called by and was very welcoming and helpful.

We stayed in Hamlet Cottage which is in a beautiful rural setting. There was ample parking and plenty of space for children to run around. it is an ideal location for access to Stratford and the surrounding area and, most importantly, we found the owners to be exceptionally welcoming and helpful.
