We were pleased to meet the owners again;they were as charming and welcoming as they were the first time we stayed.
The location of the cottage was just right,being within easy walking distance of the town but affording access to surrounding areas while avoiding town traffic.
The accommodation and equipment were of the highest quality and finally we are hoping to have the opportunity return again very soon.

My husband and I have recently returned from our second week staying in Rith Chalet. Yet again nothing has disappointed us. Rith Chalet, with its spacious grounds, is peaceful and relaxing. You can always guarantee a warm welcome from the owners. We have enjoyed Shakespeare's county and travelling further afield to the national trust houses. Hopefully, we will be returning again at Easter for another welcoming break in this great little cottage.

The cottage is well equipt and it is always nice to find a bottle of wine to welcome you. Tina and Jim are very willing to help and offer advice about local site and tourist attractions. The gated garden is large and secure, with an abundance of wide life. Ann Hathaways cottage is within walking distance and the local pub is even closer serving very good food. We will be going again.
as usual the stay was perfect

Rith Calet is one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in, spacious,spotlessly clean and well equiped and maintained well and in a good location for exploring the area. Plenty of National Trust properties in the area.The owners were wellcoming but not intrusive. Local pub a few minutes walk away good for meals.

Very spacious and comfortable, and warm, especially important as most days we were there the temperature was way below freezing. Welcome card and wine were a thoughtful finishing touch.15 minute walk to town centre.Great pub for meals 2 minutes walk away. Cottage itself very well equipped with lovely garden views. We hope to go again later this year.Ideal for Stratford, warwick and Cotswolds a real find.
What a find

Rith Chalet was the best cottage we have ever stayed in. It was immaculate and had every comfort needed to enjoy a holiday. The situation was perfect as it was so quiet and private. It felt like being in one's own grounds complete with squirrels and fox.
We have booked to go next summer and have already recommended the accommodation to friends
Could not have been better !

We received a very warm welcome from the owners who lived just to the rear of the cottage in a beautiful house. Both properties stood in private grounds very close to Anne Hathaway's cottage. The cottage was spacious, nicely furnished and decorated and had everything required for a comfortable stay.
It is possible to walk into the centre of Stratford on a very nice flat and easy path, taking approximately 15 minutes, which means of course that there is no problem with parking. There is a pub just 5 minutes walk away which serves good food at reasonable prices. There is an abundance of eating places at all prices in Stratford.
Most of the historical places of interest are within walking distance, although some can be expensive.
Whilst staying here, we visited Bath, Oxford and Warwick Castle (highly recommended !) and also did some walking in the Black Mountains near to Brecon.
This is by far the best cottage we have stayed in, in every respect, and I cannot think of anything that we didn't like.
I would unreservedly recommend this property.
