The Area

Our cottages are in a truly special position being close to the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon, home to the Royal Shakespeare Company’s three world-renowned theatres and yet on the edge of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with its charming villages, houses and gardens. There are for instance 10 National Trust properties within one hour’s drive, a national art gallery and an opera house. Dining out is a must with many fantastic restaurants, pubs and inns both in Stratford and the local villages. Many visitors tell us they have just not had time for everything and will have to return…
