Self contained Barn with separate bedroom for 2
The Barn is in the grounds of The Elms a timber framed farmhouse dating from the sixteenth century - Shakespeare's time. The Barn itself is more than 200 years old with exposed brick stone and timber including some low beams so in time honoured tradition guests need to 'Duck or Grouse'. It is luxuriously appointed so enjoy the comfortable bed, luxuriate in the fabulous bathroom and head upstairs for your first 'nespresso' of the day - or even tea! In the evening unwind with a glass of wine in the courtyard - open from april 2017 - watch TV ( a smart one`) or revisit the past and play vinyls - we have a small selection in the Barn but feel free to bring along your own.
There is ample parking so pull up alongside Jane's Morris Minor (1954) to begin your stay.
The Barn is 5 min walk from the bustling village of Tiddington. There you'll find the village pub - The Crown , Aladins - the best indian restaurant for miles and winner of various awards, Mr Chans a very good chinese restaurant, Connolley's Tapas Bar and an excellent Spar supermarket and post office. On wednesdays and saturdays you can visit 'Knead It' an artisan bakers who make the most delicious bread and cakes and indeed run bread-making courses.
You could of course just chill out and enjoy the ambience of the barn but if you wish to explore further afield Stratford is a 25 minute walk or 5 minute car journey, whilst Warwick is 20 minutes drive and you could be in the centre of the Cotswolds in a similar time.

We have lived at this property for over 30 years and have brought our family up here. Now that they have all left home we have some space - and time - and like to welcome visitors to Stratford upon avon
Jane purchased this Barn in 1983
Why Jane chose Stratford-upon-Avon
The Barn is in the grounds of The Elms a sixteenth century farmhouse which was built around the time of Shakespeare's birthpace and indeed has many of the same features. The Barn itself is not quite so old but oozes character with many original features - including a low beam in the living area - so mind your heads!

Ideal position for walking to Stratford Upon Avon
Newly renovated barn for two. Lovely position with upstairs full of light perfectly proportioned for two. Walked to nearby country pub/bar and well stocked spar very close in village. Walked to Stratford on Friday and did river trip with working lock and after doing the back stage tour, booked to see Antony and Cleopatra in the eve at the RSC. Kitchen perfect for simple catering which is all that was needed with lovely coffee machine. Really enjoyed the record player! Tried to walk opposite way to Charlecote NT property but ran out of verge - drove it in 5 mins!
Only issue was not having the heated towel rail working to dry towels and a very disturbing noise that occurred every 45 mins or so all through the night emanating from it seemed behind the very comfortable bed. The owner was away so we were unable to ask these questions so these issues may well have been solvable. Would recommend and would return.
Thank you for your review, I'm so glad you feel you would like to come back even with issues you mentioned. I'm sorry you didn't call as the towel rail was switched off by the previous guests - it had been very hot when they stayed - and I hadn't noticed ! We slept in the barn last night to work out what the 'noise' was and believe it is the saniflo so the engineer is on his way!!
Hopefully you will come again and we will be able to finally meet
Have a lovely summer
Great location, beautiful place and excellent hospitality.
Located close enough to Stratford Upon Avon to walk, this lovely new unit was just wanted we needed. Jane and Mike thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable.
We are a mile from the centre of Stratford upon Avon- an international tourist centre and the birthplace of William Shakespeare with theatres shops cinema, restaurants and bars. Within 20 minutes drive we have Warwick - Castle, Kenilworth - Castle, the spa town of Leamington Spa and of course the beautiful Cotswolds.
Englands second city is Birmingham which is about 45 minutes by car or train and London itself can be got to by train from Warwick Parkway and is 1 hour 15mins.
We have lived at The Elms for 30 years and so know the area very well and are happy to make suggestions and advise guests on what is available locally that might interest them.
