Large townhouse ideal for family or friend reunions

Bedrooms 6
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

6/7 bedrooms. Within 10 mins walk of shops, theatres and attractions.

Stratford House provides an ideal venue for large family or friend reunions. Cars are not essential as the property is located within 10 minutes walk of all major attractions and shops and the town is well served by bus and rail. But if cars are preferred the forecourt provides ample parking for up to 8 cars.

For those of you who have been before, the house has been completely reconfigured on the ground floor. We have knocked down few walls and now have a new spacious kitchen which leads directly into the conservatory dining room. This room can be arranged in 2 ways. There are 2 tables that can each seat 8 people very comfortably. However these tables can be put together to create almost a square to provide more sociable and comfortable seating for up to 14. This arrangement would not be ideal for 15 or 16 people as 1 or 2 volunteers would have to sit at corners, but it can be done.

A much more spacious lounge has replaced 2 former bedrooms on the ground floor with doors onto the patio. Although 2 bedrooms have been lost, capacity has been maintained with the provision of 2 double sofa beds in the new lounge which can be separated for privacy with a free-standing room divider.

It must be noted that, while the downstairs cloakroom does provide a toilet and washbasin for anyone sleeping in the new lounge, shower facilities need to be borrowed from one of the 6 remaining en-suite bedrooms. While we did consider the impact of losing 2 established bedrooms, we feel that the benefit of providing far more usable living space in the daytime has more than made up for this.

Also on the ground floor remains a double bedroom, a utility room and a cloakroom.

The first floor provides 2 further doubles, a family room for 4, a single and a further twin. All bedrooms have TVs and full ensuite facilities

Outside is a patio area and a summer house that can be used as an extra sitting room or more generally as a children's playroom.

What makes this house unique

In a nutshell, it's central to town and has ample parking, although how we came by this property is a story in itself

Spacious accommodation for family gathering.

  • 4 of 5

13 people and a baby shared this house and the space is amazing and worked well for all of us. The bedrooms all with showers are brilliant ( no queuing) and even though we had a small issue with the boiler this was resolved ASAP. The location is excellent for ambling into the town and down to the river with plenty of places to eat and drink. Karen and Tasha could not have been more helpful and I would hope that this is not our one and only visit.

Lovely house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We booked the house for a hen party and were really pleased with the facilities provided. Each rooms is beautifully decorated and the house is in the most fantastic location. Karen and Tasha, the owners of the house were fantastic. They provided a lot of information up front and were really welcoming and flexible. This is the perfect house for a party. I would definitely recommend this house over a hotel. Amazing

Needs some of the work finishing off i.e. Doors to conservatory and damaged wallpaper following recent alterations.

Children were unable to use Summerhouse as it was being used for storage.

The welcome pack was a very nice touch.

A family gathering

  • 5 of 5

After a long journey it was a lovely welcome in the kitchen , plenty for all to devour. Thank you.

We so enjoyed our stay, our family gathering of nine adults and seven young grandchildren was just perfect. The dining in the conservatory was brilliant, and we stayed in there for the evening once some of the children went to bed very comfortably in the lounge.

The en suites in all the bedrooms were amazing and very much appreciated.

A really lovely house, and very reasonably priced which did mean it was affordable for a weekend family gathering. Beautiful, a lovely home.

Stratford-upon-Avon is world renowned for being the birthplace of William Shakespeare. Locally there are 5 properties to visit connected with his own birth and that of family members. A must see is one of his plays at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre . Failing that the riverside setting of Stratford is immensely attractive and simply strolling by the river or hiring a rowing boat is tremendously popular.

We are also spoilt by an incredible choice of fabulous restaurants and pubs offering a wide range of food and drink.

Nearby are the towns of Warwick and Kenilworth each with an impressive castle and the village of Mickleton with the outstanding gardens of Hidcote Manor.

Within 30 minutes drive you can also find yourself in the Cotswolds where the villages of Broadway, Stow on the Wold, Bourton on the Water and Chipping Campden represent just a handful of the prettiest villages in England.
