“This property is in an excellent location for the town - the back garden of Shakespeare's birthplace is at the end of the street.”
5 minutes walk and you are in the centre of town. The cottage was very comfortable and newly refurbished. The beds were lovely and the shower was excellent with luxurious fluffy towels. A couple of things lacking in the equipment (e.g. 3 veg peelers but no scissors, no teapot (but that could be just be us not liking it made in a cup !!)) and I had to clean the grill pan before using it. Parking is not easy and restrictions confusing - we parked a street away opposite a sign saying permit ...

Parking is not easy and restrictions confusing - we parked a street away opposite a sign saying permit holders OK but it only applied to a section of 'our' side of the road and we got a ticket. Not a great welcome to Stratford - Beware. We can recommend the HOHO bus - not cheap but it is for 24 hours and the route goes to all the Shakespeare sites. You can buy a combined ticket (bus + entry) depending on how many sites you want to visit. We also enjoyed the Butterfly Farm, a river trip and Tudor World "experience" - different and very interesting.
