I have owned Globe House since 2007 when I lived around the corner next to the canal. It's a lovely part of town and in very close proximity to the town centre.
Lisa purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Lisa chose Stratford-upon-Avon
The property has a lot of history, during it's lifetime it has been a publishing house, a pub and a holiday cottage. The property was in dire need of renovation when I bought the property and with a bit of time and a lot of love the pub was converted into two apartments. The ground floor provides a lovely space to stay just a stone's throw from all the hubbub of the town centre.
What makes this Apartment unique
The renovation was done to include some of the old expectations of a Victorian house that can be seen in the bathroom and the feature fireplace in the lounge with a mixture of new with a modern kitchen and en-suite wetroom to the master bedroom.

The property was very clean, comfy beds and everything you could ever need, washing machine, dishwasher with powder, tablets supplied, kitchen cupboard full of utensils and lots of extras. Few minutes walk from the centre and the garden is not stones now as pictured but astro turf with lovely table and chairs. Would highly recommend
Thank you William, its nice to know that you enjoyed your stay at Globe House.
Clean, modern and comfortable
Great to be central to the town and walks along the river and canal. Thanks to the owner for allowing us to use her own drive way for our daughter's car.
This spacious apartment was the perfect location for exploring Stratford and it’s many places of interest. Being on the ground floor it was perfect for one of our party who has slight mobility difficulties. The apartment is well equipped, spacious and beautifully presented. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
Exquist home from home.
Wonderfully located and immaculate property. Everything you could need for a family escape. We loved it and will return no doubt.
Great Value, great location:
This unit is situated directly across from Henley Street, home of Shakespeare's birthplace, gardens, and giftshop. Students of theatre perform excerpts of Shakespeare's comedies, tragedies, sonnets on a regular basis on an especially built outdoor theatre. Mimes do statues, comedians do skits, and crowds of people gather for snacks and tea (or coffee) on a sunny day and even in the rain. We saw Macbeth at the RSC and Mrs Rich at The Swan, and we enjoyed both, though we did not like the director's choice to use sweet-looking children as witches. The children were cheered, but they were not at all witch-like, but that was the fault of the director, not of the place where we stayed.
The unit (incuding a delightful little outdoor courtyard) was very well equipped; dishes and cooking utensils were provided and were of very good quality. Towels and other linens; toilet paper and paper towels-- all were supplied. In fact, there was nothing that could be improved in the space provided. The only problem with the space itself was the little steps separating the living areas. We had to get used to them.
We would recommend cheerfully this unit to any visitor to Stratford-upon-Avon
A great place to stay, you can see Shakespeare's birthplace from the front door.
We've stayed in many self catering apartments over the years and this has to be one of the most comfortable, plenty of comfortable seating, very clean , nicely decorated and well laid out. The second bedroom is next door to the bathroom so two adult couples staying can have their own bathroom which is nice .
