I recently stayed here for 3 nights and had a very pleasant time. The hosts, Iain and Dianne, were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. When my camera died, they gave me good advice on where I could get another one locally - thanks for this as I was rather stressed over losing a day's photos - of the Cotswolds of all places!
I would recommend this Guest House to anyone visiting Stratford.

My landlord had assured me it was a nice walk, unfortunately most of it was through alleyways or between peoples backyards and this big hedge which contained lots of little flying bugs. Not a bad walk, but hardly the pleasant stroll in the english countryside I ...
... reigned so we departed for some afternoon tea back in our hotel rooms.
The last order of business for the day was the evening performance of Classical spectacular. Held at the National Indoor, (thankfully), Arena it is a once a year event for Birmingham much like the London proms. Buses lined the streets with out of town groups and you could be forgiven for thinking the afternoon crowds from the bullring had ...
Coventry is an old 12th century city that was destroyed during WWII, then rebuilt. There are ruins of old cathedrals that were bombed, yet remain picturesque. Coventry keeps the ruins as a reminder of the futility of war.
There was also a statue of Lady Godiva, who rode through the town naked to protest rising taxes. It worked. Who knew that was all it took? Let's go. Take off your pants!
