2 Bedroom Timber Lodge  |  Sleeping 4  |  Stratford-upon-Avon
Since 1932, this site has been an idylic retreat in the Cotswolds. With the historic town of Stratford Upon Avon minutes away and Warwick castle within 30 minutes drive, this is an ideal location for both.

The lodge is set in a private two acre garden belonging to the owners Simon and Loo. The property has been designed by them with careful thought to create a private wildlife setting extending to the banks of the River Avon.

Gay Willows has been lovingly designed to create a tranquil setting for holidays.

Many thanks for sharing your fabulous lodge, a truly idyllic spot with lovely tended gardens and an abundance of wildlife,it really is a gem. Sharing the garden with a pair of green woodpeckers and Mr Fox made our week, and the Barbel we caught at Evesham !!!
We return home totally chilled, but sad at leaving such a tranquil setting.

A wonderful place to stay. We enjoyed our sightings of Foxes, Bats, Rabbits and Kingfishers.
The water taxi is a great way to get into town.... and if you drink enough wine the walk back isn't bad either!!! Thanks to our hosts for the warm welcome and all of the small details making it “home”.

Parting is such sweet sorrow! Thank you for a wonderful stay. We loved the quiet, the rabbits, the birds, the innumerable extras in the lodge, and the trips out to homes and gardens, etc.,etc., etc !!!
NB When we arrived there were eight bunnies, now there are nine!!!!

We shall miss the peace and the wildlife, especially the rabbits !!! Wonderful relaxing stay, with everything we could wish for. Thank you Loo & Simon
