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 …
... past 3 times we have made our pilgrimage to Elba. And that was the RENDEZVOUS. The owner Pierro, showed me last time how to make their signature Champagne Sorbet. Took me into the kitchen but last time tricked me and said make it with a lemon sorbet as the base but in reality it it lemon ice-cream, big difference. These creative types always try and put you off the track. So I now have videoed the whole/ procedure so will be seeing if we have some Guinea pigs when we get back ...
... To do this we need many things, not least of which is a strong dependable workhorse to get us around and arguably no better vehicle exists for this than a Toyota Land Cruiser 80 series. So, here's a picture of our latest acquisition. It's nearly 20 years old and has done nearly 167,000 miles and still going strong. It's in standard shape right now and will be base lined for a long trip and have few modifications to ...
Yes I have two days off, then am moving flats, and then another day off so when I should be thinking about packing and cleaning, I'm thinking of trying to fit in one more quick trip before it all. I've been itchy sitting around in cafes for the past three/ four days struggling to sort out my life by searching accommodations, flights, and everything else for my upcoming few months.

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe New Inn Stratford-upon-Avon
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).
