Self-Catering Reviews

Mr Hooper, September 2020
September 2020
Would have given the property a 10 had the entrance sign been more visible and maybe a pre warning of the entrance as well, but the property itself and the area it was in were superb..
Mr Hooper
September 2020
Overall it was a really nice place, and friendly and helpful owners.. We really enjoyed ourselves. Just a few suggestions for the future: Having a really good internet connection is so important these days, especially with the covid-19 pandemic. People want to work from home and when on holiday, and some will rent a place simply to work the whole week, as a break from home. So while we eventually got the internet to work, (the difficulty was that the security password wasn't written down accurately) we weren't sure how reliable it was. I would put some effort in to make sure it is reliable and fast and can then be advertised on the listing as a feature. We had to ask if internet was available when booking - it should be seen as a key feature. A clearer and cleaner sign at the entrance to the farm would make a better initial impression than the current one, and perhaps a few arrows as you near the buildings to direct you to the cottages. We found them OK, but it was a bit of guesswork the first time. But overall a great place to stay
Ms Chignell, August 2020

Nice place to stay , but nothing for children to do on site .. Wi-fi very patchy . Beds could be larger in master bedroom .
Mr Westgate, September 2020
August 2020
The Roost is in a beautiful farm location, with amazing views and sunsets! The owners were very warm, welcoming and helpful, answering any questions we had. The Roost is attractive, clean and spacious accommodation, with a lovely shared garden which you can sit out in and enjoy the peaceful surrounds. It’s really well situated for Stratford-Upon-Avon, the Cotswolds villages and National Trust properties as well. The nearest supermarket isn’t far away either. The Roost is a real gem and we would highly recommend it. We’d definitely return!
Mr Ross, August 2020
July 2020
The holiday home was lovely, well kept and lovely owner.. Great location central to so many sights within 30mins and Stratford-upon-Avon was only 5min drive away.
Mrs Sutcliffe
May 2019
Lovely cosy place.. Well equipped. Nice and clean. Really peaceful location.. Will need a car though as it is quite rural , but lovely views so worth the trip.
Mr Neal
April 2019
Excellent location for visiting Cotswolds area or just relaxing around Stratford.. Shame we had to go out and buy some bottled water as the water was cut off at the end of our holiday due to a burst water main nearby.
Mr Cridland-winter

Lovely location and made very welcome by the family who own the farm
Mrs Spurling
September 2018
This lovely little holiday home was everything we wanted it to be, and more.. Very welcoming and perfectly situated, it is close enough to Stratford (barely 10 minutes) to get into town quickly and easily, but far enough away to provide peace and quiet at the end of a busy day sightseeing. I couldn’t recommend it more.
Mr cridland-winter
September 2018
I had a very enjoyable stay with great location peaceful and quiet.. The owners made me feel very welcome and the personal touch of milk and fresh eggs was lovely. Would definitely stay there again and recommend to family and friends
Mrs Flanagan

Lovely homely feel, the Burrows are lovely people who take pride in their holiday homes.. My children loved to play in the spacious garden with their lovely toys provided. A great family holiday
Mrs Gallon
August 2018
The cottage is in a great location - only a few minutes drive from Stratford and within easy reach of so many other attractions.. The garden area outside cottage is lovely for children to play in. The lady who runs the cottages was very friendly and helpful. The confirmation e-mail we received from Sykes after booking was really helpful, with all the info we needed in one place.
Ms Bailey
July 2018
We've been renting holiday cottages for 8 years and The Roost was the cleanest we've ever stayed in! It was comfortable and well appointed, on a working farm and the owners were very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect for us, a real country retreat but close to several routes into the Cotswolds. We would definitely stay at there again.
Mrs Slater

Liked everything! It was spotlessly clean and nothing was missing from the kitchen - like being at home! It was light and airy too. The garden was lovely and peaceful to sit out for drinks etc. It was only 3 miles from Stratford and it was very easy for anywhere in the Cotswolds. We will be back next year, definitely.
Mr Crofts

The location for Stratford and the Cotswold villages was excellent. The cottage had lovely views; one way over the garden and rolling countryside and the other side was a delightful view of this year's lambs. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful.

A beautiful cottage with lovely views, the owners were friendly and it was like a home from home. My little boy loved seeing the sheep outside and the tractors going past.
June 2015
My elderly mother and I stayed in May for a week. We had a lovely week in the very comfortable cottage. It was single storey so ideal for my mother. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the cottage was very well appointed.
Mrs Bryant-Peters

The cottage was absolutely spotless when we arrived! Excellent location only a couple of minutes drive to Stratford! Lovely garden with amazing views! Great to wake up an open the curtains to sheep in the field just a few meters away! There was not anything we did not like about our stay at The Roost! Could not recommend it more!

This was the most beautiful place I have stayed in for a number of years both inside and outside the property. Everything about our holiday was brilliant. Would definitely go there again without hesitation.
Mr Massey
July 2013
We enjoyed the holiday in Stratford upon Avon having not been there for a number of years. The hosts were very friendly, helpful and welcoming and they treated us like part of the family. Nothing was too much trouble for them. On arrival, they had left milk and eggs in the fridge for us and on the Sunday, they asked if we would like a Sunday paper. Everything about the cottage and grounds were first class. We would definitely visit again and would recommend the cottage to friends and family.
Mrs Dennis
June 2013
The cottage was very clean and comfortable. The setting was relaxing, the owners friendly and helpful. Everything you could need was available in the cottage. Splendid holiday we will definitely return.
Mrs Whitelock

Very well appointed property. Good location. Very peaceful. It was very comfortable, a real home-from-home.
December 2012
I found this cottage by accident after a no response from another owner. It turned out that this was most certainly a massive plus as The Roost is an absolute gem. Location was perfect with probably the most friendly and helpful owners I have met in over 30 years of renting self catering accomodation.The cottage itself was unbelievably comfortable and superbly equipped. I have already recommended The Roost to family and friends and would without hesitation advise anyone of it's merits.

Mrs Page

Although we had a two year old and a six week old baby in tow, we were made to feel very welcome by the owner who was always on hand should we need any help or advice on our holiday. They also provided useful things such as highchairs and travel cots for our little ones and were happy for us to re-arrange the furniture to suit our sleeping arrangements!

Quality and cleanliness of the property was excellent. On arrival there were flowers, a lovely bowl of fresh fruit and the fridge had been stocked with milk, eggs and fresh orange juice a really nice touch. The property is in a lovely location offering fantastic views across the surrounding countryside. Wonderful place for families as the children can play safely right outside on the large grassed area which has a table and chairs. Several nights enjoyed watching the sun go down with a lovely bottle of wine or two. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to family and friends.
