The New Inn
Travel Blogs from Stratford-upon-Avon
We were planning an easy day with a short drive from Newport to Stratford-on-Avon but we decided on a detour to the Welsh capitol of Cardiff to fill in the day. We left Cardiff after 6 hours and didn't get to Stratford until 7:00pm! Cardiff was the largest seaport in the world as the area around it had good quality coking coal which was exported …
... crunchy and soft on the inside. There was also salad. I couldn't finish it! I asked for a lemon lime frink knowing that in the past bitters is something that they don't know over here. The lady asked me if I would like bitters with the lemon lime. I was really shocked but it was lovely.
Home to bed in a room with a really annoying squeaky door that everyone in the entire building could hear I'm sure. I had a shower in a shared bathroom. When I turned ...
Today was quite warm by UK standards and Derek and I had a pleasant walk along the canal in the morning before joining the Grimer family for a very tasty Sunday roast lunch. 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 ...

We all had to boo the accused... it was a lot of fun. There were a few times that we jumped... but on the ...
... as lovely and friendly as Fiona. It was fairly chaotic in the house with all the family plus two dogs and two very large rabbits. After lunch Malcolm took Linda, Derek and I into Hereford and we toured the cathedral which is similar in style to Worcester although there seem to be a lot more older parts with tombs dating back to the 12th century.

The New Inn is 5km outside Stratford. It is rated as a 2 star hotel but it deserves much more. The rooms are spacious and comfy, the staff are friendly and the food is fine. It only cost £49 per night. The only draw back is that you have to lug your cases up about 20 very steep, high steps to reach your room and unpack (with the opposite when you are leaving).
