Binton, Stratford-upon-Avon

Quaint and characterful 17th Century, stone cottage – 4 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon

Guestbook

“Stayed in this charming cottage in February 2017. Tasteful renovated to a very high standard and set in the beautiful village of Binton just outside Stratford upon Avon. Ideally placed to explore Warwickshire (although we enjoyed the cottage so much we didn’t want to venture out much!). So much thought has gone into making guests feel welcome and at home. We’ve stayed in lots of cottages but this beats the lot and we’ll be happy to recommend to friends and on Trip Advisor. – Treat yourself, you won’t regret it. “- SUE, BRIAN & DAISY, EASTBOURNE

“Brassknocker Cottage in Binton is simply divine. For those wanting a refuge in the countryside, this is the place for you. Coming back to a real log fire in a cosy 17th century cottage doesn’t get better than this… The place may be compact, but all the finishing and fittings are first class. There is great walking in the local countryside with some stunning valley views, and great food at the local pub, a mere 5 minutes walk away. You can also walk across fields and paths to Stratford itself, and of course the RSC. Our stay was just magical, and the bottle of wine, card and chocolates that greeted our entry the most perfect of touches. I can’t recommend this cottage enough, I just hope to have an excuse to come back this way again soon.”-ROB & ALISON, WARE, HERTFORDSHIRE

“We absolutely LOVED the cottage, it is perfect! It is very well equipped and we would highly recommend it – in fact we’d love to pack it up and take it home with us!! We will definately be in touch to stay again should we ever return to the UK.”- KERRI & RUTH, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA

“The cottage is beautiful. It has been decorated to a high standard and had been thoughtfully fitted out with essentials and more. The original range in the sitting room has been lovingly restored and has a lovely fire surround, making the room feel characterful, but modern. The kitchen was well laid out and had everything you could need, with the extra touch of milk, tea bags, coffee, wine and chocolates all left for our arrival. The beds were comfortable. We enjoyed staying in the cottage which was easy for travel to Stratford and the Cotswolds. We had our dog with us too and he quickly settled in the cottage, it was reassuring knowing the garden was secure. The Cottage is beautiful and it felt really special being in it when it was new. We wish you great success with it in future. A lovely place to stay which we would recommend to everyone.”-MR & MRS SOMERVILLE, CARLUKE, LANARKSHIRE

“We love this cottage! It’s a great blend of old and new, cosy and homely but not cramped and is in a really great location for getting to all the bits of Warwickshire that we wanted to see. Having a nice country pub (the Blue Boar) on the doorstep was a real hit with us too!”-RICHARD & FIONA, WEST MIDLANDS
