Old Manor Cottage

Shipston-on-Stour, Warwickshire

A cosy sitting room, comfy beds and sparkling bathroom in a pretty thatched stone cottage. Wander Jane's garden or walk to the village pub


2 bedrooms


Sleeps 3


Close by the timbered Tudor Old Manor House, where Jane welcomes her B&B guests, sits this clematis-swathed stone cottage with a new thatch bonnet, bright white 18th-century walls and attractive paned windows. This is a contemporary transformation of an old farm outbuilding but there’s nothing old hat about it with its well-equipped little kitchen: glass table and stylish white scoop chairs, heated flagged floors, Shaker-style units. Find freshness too in the cosy sitting room with striped armchairs, crisp floral curtains and open fire. Then up steep stairs through a little bedroom, with a single bed tucked under a window, to a pitched roof main bedroom with appealing cream furniture and a comfy bed wrapped in white cotton. Your bathroom is sparkling clean with underfloor heating and good smellies. This is a private bolthole but in no way isolated. Walk to the village pub for supper and before you go take a turn around the delightful garden, glass in hand. Here, 10 minutes from Stratford and in the scented peace of Jane’s much loved rose borders overlooking the old orchard, is the essence of peaceful village life.
