You’ll stay in a 19th century town house, with three bedrooms, and two bathrooms. Lodging is best suited to 2 guests: you’ll have access to one room with a queen-size bed that also separates into two singles. The rest of the house is also included (except for the owner’s bedroom) so and you’ll have access to a full kitchen, dishwasher, wash machine and dryer and a small back garden.

LOCATION  in Stratford-Upon-Avon

The house about two hours to London by train, with a change at Leamington Spa. It’s just a five-minute walk from the train station and there is also a Hertz rental car office near the train station.  

The street is a residential street; walking to the street market on Fridays takes 5 minutes, maybe 10 minutes to the center of town and the theatre.  A large supermarket is also within a 5-minute walk. 

There are many restaurants within walking distance.  

Three of the main Shakespeare Houses--the Birthplace, Hall’s Croft, and Nash’s House--are right in town. Anne Hathaway’s cottage is about a mile from the house, and easily walkable on a path that begins right across the street from the house. The fifth property, Mary Arden’s House, is about three miles away, in Wilmcote. That’s reachable from the train, or a bus that goes around town and stops at the various properties.
