Travel Blogs from Stratford-upon-Avon
I had decided when looking at places to go in England that Stratford on Avon would need to be on my list. As such, when tickets for Richard II came on sale with David Tenant (he played the Doctor in the modern Doctor Who seasons 2 through 5) playing the part of Richard II, it felt like the perfect time to go. I went straight from work on Friday to …
There is a lovely pace of life in the Cotswolds and the lanes and roads are quintessential England: trees that meet over the road and feels like you are driving inside a green tunnel. The honey coloured stone lets you know exactly where in England you are even if you don't have a map or a GPS.

Rob and Fi then took us to Croome Park, an 18th century country house and estate where we enjoyed a walk through the house and grounds. Rob then dragged me out into the fields to go blackberry picking and Derek and I dropped in for a chat with Lesley's parents, Ray and Doreen, before supper and a chat with Rob and ...

Our next trek was to ...

A short while later Derek's brother Brian arrived with Hazel. I was not surprised to find she ignored us when she came into the room and Derek had to force her to greet us.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
This Guest house was conveniently located on Groove St. It was about a kilometre walk from the station and about a five to 10 minute walk into town. The owners were very nice and helpful.
Breakfast was included and you had the choice of granola and yogurt, english breakfast, scrambled eggs, and vegetarian breakfast. The breakfast area was charming.
The rooms were small but comfy and clean.
Overall, the price for the stay was great value for money as for the two nights it cost 52 pound in total. Definitely recommend staying here.
