Binton, Stratford Upon Avon
Quaint and characterful 17th Century, stone cottage – 4 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon.
A charming and character-filled 17th century blue lias stone cottage refurbished to a very high standard, yet maintaining many original features including flagstone floors, oak beams, working cast iron range and garden well. Sleeps up to 4 (3+1). Located just 4 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon, on the outskirts on the historic village of Binton and a short walk from the highly regarded inn and restaurant The Blue Boar.
‘Brassknocker Cottage’ is a delightfully quirky and lovingly restored 17th century stone cottage which has been around since Shakespeare’s time! Having undergone an extensive refurbishment programme, this high specification, characterful holiday cottage is full of olde world charm, enjoying a lovely and convenient location, close to excellent pubs, and many visitor attractions.
The property is situated on the edge of the historic village of Binton; just 4 miles from Stratford upon Avon and is surrounded by open countryside, with wonderful walking right on the doorstep. This beautifully presented, pet-friendly accommodation simply oozes character with original beams, cooking range with wood burning stove, stone walls and flagstone floors – There’s even a well in the garden which used to serve the local hamlet!
The cottage can accommodate up to 4, with one double bedded room, one single bedded room and a double sofa bed in its lounge.
As you might expect from a four hundred year old property, there are plenty of nooks and crannies, a sloping ceiling or two, a couple of low doorways and barrow loads of character. The cottage’s lovely winding staircase incorporates a rope bannister, so may not be suitable for very small children, toddlers or those who are infirm or have mobility issues. The shower room is beatifully equipped, but due to the limited proportions of the room the shower cubicle is a 700 x 700 corner model (so may be a little snug if you are on the well proportioned side!)
Refurbished to a very high standard, yet still retaining much of its old world charm, Brassknocker Cottage provides luxurious character accommodation in a convenient location and is just a few minutes walk from the highly regarded historic country pub The Blue Boar Inn, which offers excellent ales and home cooked food in its bar and restaurant.

“The layout of the cottage is excellent and the place has been renovated really well – we were in awe the whole time we were there! So much quirk, yet so modern as well which was great! The cottage is close to Stratford upon Avon so plenty to do in the area and lots of walks to be had! There are also many lovely places to eat around the local area. We absolutely loved our little mini-moon and are hoping to return very soon! Thank you so much! (Review left on TripAdvisor January 2019)”-REA & DIONNE, ELLESMERE PORT (ON HONEYMOON!)

“Such a lovely cosy comfortable cottage, great pubs nearby so plenty of places to eat out, amazing countryside so we would LOVE to visit again (Review left on TripAdvisor September 2018)”-SUZIE & FAMILY, CHRISTCHURCH
“The cottage was AMAZING! We arrived to find a welcome card, hand made Henley Chocolates a bottle of fizz and a bag of dog treats. It was very clean and welcoming. It had everything you needed for a great stay. The garden was well fenced so we could leave the back door open for dogs to go in and out. It was only 4 miles from Stratford-Upon-Avon. We visited other villages while we were there and of course went to see Romeo and Juliet. There are some very good pubs near by which are also dog friendly as well as good food. We will 100% be staying there again (Review originally left on TripAdvisor 07/08/18)”-SARAH, TONBRIDGE
