“Old world feel but overall a little disappointing”
Reviewed August 28, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We recently stayed at Highcroft for a 70th birthday celebration.
The house/cottage itself is very large with an 'old world' feel. The first impression is one of a home from home with a cosy feel although the aga does mean a very warm kitchen throughout the summer. The home made scones are a nice touch on arrival. The overly personal items such as family passports in the drawers left us feeling as though we were slightly intruding on someone's space.
The older members of the group loved everything about the house and the furniture was exactly what they like. Unfortunately, those of us with children were concerned about several safety issues; the rugs that slipped, the glass greenhouse in the garden, the wobbly chairs, no locks on Windows etc
The grounds were lots of fun with swings, slide etc being used a lot by the children. Again unfortunately the safety padding on the trampoline didn't fit so we didn't use. The tennis court was a great addition and the children loved playing here.
On arrival we were setting up the rooms ready for the rest of family to arrive when we discovered the roll away single bed was broken with one set of the legs not working. We phoned the owner who did not see a problem with this and suggested one of the children sleep on the floor, this is not what you expect. We specifically booked a house for ten, there were ten people so we needed beds for 10. We lost all confidence in the owner sorting this issue and sorted a put up bed ourselves. Not what you expect!
Lots of games, jigsaws, racquets and even a rocking horse but overall this would suit groups of older visitors and not ones with small children.

“Fabulous family house”
Reviewed November 25, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Great for groups and kids. Spacious rooms everywhere.The Aga supplied cosiness and warmth. Highly recommended. Scones on arrival. Very clean and tidy. Plenty of kitchen cupboards to store supplies. Would be even better in the spring/summer when you could use the tennis court fully.

Thank you for sharing your holiday experience with us, we are so pleased that you had a good holiday. It is great to hear that Highcroft had everything you needed, with those scones as an added welcome! We hope that you visit us again soon, perhaps in the summer when you can have a lovely game of tennis!

“Fabulous place for a family get-together ”
Reviewed May 29, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A wonderful, safe, self-contained, well-provisioned family home which was very obviously just that (a family home) and has retained that feel through the transition to holiday let.
Lovely garden and grounds; very exciting to have the tennis court; trampoline loved by the kids.
Super convenient for Stratford and a Waitrose only five minutes away. Owners very friendly and helpful.
I couldn't recommend this place more.
