We welcomed the 2017 New Year in at Welford Cottage, our first visit to the cottage in the Winter months and during the festive season, we were not disappointed. The cottage had been dressed tastefully with Christmas decorations and gifts for all had been left for our arrival. The cottage is warm and well equipped for winter as much as for summer, it really is worth a visit any time of the year. The complex of cottages have their own Christmas tree outside and the gardens are kept immaculate. In comparison, Welford Cottage stands out as being the prettiest and most well equipped out of all the holiday cottages in the complex by far. It has character and charm in abundance. It well located for visits to Stratford, Warwick and Gloucestershire. There are plenty of National Trust sites, garden centres, boating and sightseeing tours, horse and sporting activities, shopping, restaurants and good old country pubs to visit. Then once you've done all of that, the beds are so immaculate, comfortable and cosy you won't want to get out! Facilities at the cottage, should you need them, make life easy; washing machine, dishwasher, vacuum, brand new oven, iron, great shower and bath and not forgetting the little luxuries that make you feel welcome, candles, matches and bath bombs! We intend to return again for a stay at Welford Cottage as there is still so much more to see and do and of course, it is such a relaxing and peaceful bolthole that we intend to visit for many more years to come, thanks Sarah.
