Cottage
Moorhen Cottage is in the historic centre of Stratford upon Avon with a five minute stroll to Shakespeare's Birthplace and seven minutes to the RSC Theatre on the riverside. The cottage has a private south-facing garden with a gate opening directly on to the picturesque towpath of the Stratford Canal. Moorhen Cottage is in a quiet cul-de-sac and has recently been refurbished to a high standard. Off road parking for two cars is available at the property- unusual in Stratford upon Avon. Bus stops are close by and the railway station is 0.6 mile. Five minutes from the open top sight seeing bus stop.

a well equipped house with parking, wood burner and super host, nothing too much trouble . the back gate opens along toe path to Stratford on Avon. 5-10 minutes walk. Lovely quaint village, theatre, Ann Hathaway's cottage not far, 1940 s tea room in village lovely. on the evening, certain weekends it turns into a 1940s drag evening which was fantastic but not for those who are easily offended. will definitely stay again. thank you.

This lovely little property was perfectly placed with just a short walk along the canal to the centre. Inside it was just perfect, everything was spotless and every need was catered for, milk and butter in the fridge and a lovely welcome basket with bread, jam, wine, crisps, chocolates. The beds were comfortable and we had a lovely restful time. We would definitely return here and would have no hesitation in recommending this place to anyone. Thank you.

Thank you for being so flexible with our booking, communication was excellent. Moorhen cottage is clean, nicely decorated with everything you will need for a stay. Lovely aspect by the canal tow path around a 5 /10 minute stroll into Stratford. We would love to return and hope to see more boats the canal when situation improves.

The cottage was immaculate with a lovely welcome basket which included all the essentials and some treats! The location was great - being able to walk into Stratford along the canal was lovely. I would thoroughly recommend it.

We had a wonderful weekend away at Moorhen Cottage. It is immaculately presented and wonderfully clean. Also really well equipped - the hosts have thought of literally everything you could need. The welcome basket included bread, jam, crisps, chocolate biscuits, milk, juice and more. The location is perfect - it's a 10 minute stroll along the canal to the town centre and the parking is a real bonus. Thank you to Sue for an absolutely fantastic stay in a beautiful house.

The cottage is lovely, very well kept with just about everything you need. The location is excellent with easy walking access to Stratford's town centre. The added touches of the welcome basket and Christmas decorations made it very homely indeed. Highly recommended.

Moorhen is a neat clean property backing on to the canal. Comfortable and well equipped. Many of the tourist locations are within easy walking distance, as are so many good places to eat. The off road parking space is a great addition as parking is very difficult to find.

4 of us stayed in the lovely Moorhen cottage for 5 days, the cottage was so well equipped, so cozy & very comfortable. We loved walking along the tow path into town & loved having the swans & their cygnets cruising past, we enjoyed drinks in the back garden on more than one occasion. We loved the closeness to town & thoroughly enjoyed looking around Stratford. Thank you Sue for thinking of everything & also the gift pack it was a lovely treat. Definitely recommend to anyone looking at staying in Stratford.

We had a great two-night stay at Moorhen Cottage. The house was charming and very well-provisioned. There was even milk, orange juice, bread, jam and other goodies provided for us. The location was excellent. It was only a five-to-ten minute stroll into town alongside the canal from the back gate. No need to drive into town and worry about parking. Finding the house was easy, it was in a quiet street, and the parking out front was convenient. It's worth noting that the bedrooms are on the small side and there is a staircase to navigate, so it's advisable not to bring very large suitcases like we did. That said, the TV room downstairs was large and very comfortable and the kitchen was a decent size as well. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a clean and charming place to stay in Stratford-Upon-Avon.
