“A wonderful place”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The apartment is situated in a lovely village within easy reach of Stratford Upon Avon.
Superb for walking, cycling and sightseeing.
The apartment itself is exceptionally well-equipped, tastefully decorated and really comfortable.
The owners are extremely nice people and were very knowledgeable about the area. They made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble.
We will certainly visit again.

“Idyllic rural retreat”

people found this review helpful

We had a wonderfully peaceful few days in this immaculate and well appointed studio apartment in the beautiful village of Welford on Avon. It's a perfect hideaway for a couple and we enjoyed wandering into the village in the evenings to visit the 3 excellent pubs! It's a 10 minute drive into Stratford (there's also a lovely riverside walk into Stratford too from the end of the lane!). The Cotswold villages are also easily accessible. Sheelagh and Alan were very helpful and great hosts. This was a fantastic find - SO much better than a bland budget hotel at very similar cost - and we'll definitely be back!!

“Perfect birthday weekend!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I booked Orchard Lodge as a surprise for my boyfriend's 21st - from the first enquiry Sheelagh was extremely helpful and accommodating, to make the weekend run smoothly.

The beautiful studio apartment has all you need and more in terms of appliances and necessities - it's clean, light and is in an idyllic location.

Welford-on-avon is a beautiful village with plenty to do - walks around the river Avon, three local pubs in the area (lovely meal at The Bell Inn, would definitely recommend) and the morning walk literally down the road to the local butchers on Saturday morning was great!

Great accessibility into Stratford Upon Avon (about a 10-15 min drive) where we enjoyed the sun at the river festival, hired a boat and went on the Ghost walk at night.

All in all we had an amazing weekend and we definitely would love to visit again soon!

“Location, location, location !!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This spacious, modern studio set above the garages of a fine home in a beautiful garden, is ideally located for visiting Stratford-on-Avon (10 minutes) or using as a base for touring those beautiful villages in the Cotswolds. (A short drive to Broadway where we had a most excellent Sunday lunch at The Swan.) The owners of the studio are very friendly and helpful - Sheelagh did a load of washing for us one day and we came home to find it dry and waiting for us when we returned. Welford-on-Avon is a delightful little village with typical English pubs - both The Shakespeare Inn and The Bell Inn are within walking distance of the studio. You can also walk to a small convenience store that is well-stocked (including wine) and a friendly butcher shop which also sells some fresh vegies and baked goods. As a person who enjoys cooking, although the kitchen is fairly well-equipped, I would have welcomed a cheese grater, egg whisk and a few mixing bowls.

“Luxury studio in beautiful setting”
Reviewed 14 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We loved staying in Orchard Lodge. Sheelagh and Alan were very good hosts, communicating very promptly before our arrival, and then greeting us and showing us around the apartment on arrival. They were a delight to meet. The studio apartment was spacious, well-equipped and very comfortable. We stayed in late October when it was quite chilly but the under-floor heating meant we were never cold.
The village is stunningly beautiful and has a few lovely pubs and a friendly convenience store. There are nice walks and it's not too far to Stratford-upon-Avon (about 10 minutes drive). We loved staying there and would highly recommend it.
