About Puddle Cottage

  • Sleeps: 4
  • Bedrooms: 2
  • Bathrooms: 2

In this peaceful retreat, French windows open onto a courtyard garden with a table and chairs - the perfect spot to catch the sun and enjoy an evening drink with an unspoilt view of the river and its island, teeming with wildlife just a few feet away. The mill stream means that Puddle Cottage is not suitable for unsupervised children, but well behaved pets are welcome. There is a secure garden area but it does provide access to the mill stream.

The centrally heated accommodation is part of an 18th century water mill and retains many original features including exposed beams. It is on three floors. There is a fully fitted kitchen (electric hob and oven), dining area seating four, and lounge space with a widescreen TV on the ground floor. The first floor has a double bed room with a separate shower room/ WC. On the top floor there is a twin/double bedroom, connecting to an en-suite bathroom, with a shower over the bath.

We are very happy to help with any enquiries and local information, and will always respect your privacy. In addition to basics, you will find a welcome hospitality gift including fruit and flowers.

Puddle Cottage is available for long and short stays. Changeover is on Fridays for weekly and weekend breaks. Mid-week breaks are Monday to Friday. Please do ask if you have any special dates that need accommodating. When possible we are happy to be flexible.

When making a booking or an enquiry, please tell us that you found this Warwickshire holiday cottage in Shipston-on-Stour on the My Favourite Holiday Cottages website. Thank you.

Girlie break

August 11th 2021

A thoroughly enjoyable 'girlie' break. We all loved the cottage + really appreciated the goodies. A great base in a truly beautiful location. Definitely coming back with hubbys.



June 20th 2021

Just as last year we all had a fantastic well needed peaceful break, especially after being so poorly. The cats settled in well again and it's been the best week we've had since last year's holiday. Much has changed with health issues in the family but the peace, tranquility, and serenity hasn't. Thank you for your welcome gifts and sharing your cottage. Much love. PS To the necxt people spiders were eaten so one less thing to be scared of. LOL X

We've enjoyed a lovely stay at Puddle Cottage. The cottage itself was very clean and comfortable. The garden area provided a beautiful and relaxing setting to enjoy a morning cuppa and an evening glass of wine. Centrally located, it provided a great base to explore the Cotswolds.

First trip since lock-down and we couldn't have asked for a more lovely place to stay. Stunning location and what a great little cottage. Thank you Jonathan and Sally!



July 10th 2020

Beautiful cottage - the photos don’t really do justice to how lovely the setting is. Stayed with our two boys and it was the perfect place to base ourselves for a weekend to visit family in Birmingham and then explore the surrounding areas the following day. Jonathan handled the check in from outside the cottage while maintaining social distancing, and the cottage was nice and clean, so we also felt safe staying there.

We have had a lovely stay at Puddle Cottage. It has been the perfect place for exploring Warwick Castle and Stratford. The Cottage was lovely and clean on arrival, and the fruit was very much appreciated! Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Cape Town

September 23rd 2019

Your cottage exceeded our expectations, the beauty, the garden, the facilities, fresh flowers, milk and chocolate in the fridge, and fresh fruit on the table. We don't have a lot of experience with Airbnb but we fear it may be downhill from here on. Both evenings the weather was good enough to have a braai (with an instant barbecue) 'cos we reckoned we will be indoors in Wales - so will do the pubs then. Grateful thanks.
