Call it a B&B, Bed and Breakfast or a Guesthouse, but the truth is, if you want to stay in Stratford-Upon-Avon, all you really need is a comfortable room and a good hearty breakfast.
That’s where Avonlea comes into its own: just five minutes easy walking from the centre of Stratford, half a mile from the world-famous Royal Shakespeare Theatre (RSC) and countless restaurants, this late Victorian townhouse is deceptively large – meaning each of the en-suite bedrooms offers plenty of space for you to unwind and relax after a busy day exploring Stratford’s many attractions.
Just leave your car on the private car park for the duration of your stay and lose yourself in Shakespeare’s England.
However, what really sets Avonlea apart is owners Rob and Clare’s flair for hospitality. It’s in their blood – Rob is the son of award-winning hoteliers (English Tourist Board Hotel of the Year runners up, among many other awards) and after attending catering college they met while earning their spurs at one of Lancashire’s finest Michelin-starred hotels and restaurant. They will make you feel welcome and relaxed, you will be impressed by their high standards of housekeeping, their attention to detail… and the quality of Rob’s breakfasts.
