Find cottages in Stratford-Upon-AvonVisit Stratford-Upon-Avon

Stratford-upon-Avon is not only a place of rich cultural and historical interest, but is also a picturesque town set in a lovely location; and perfect for a cottage holiday.

Set in the beautiful, rural Warwickshire countryside, Stratford-upon-Avon is of course steeped in history and heritage and famous as the birth place of William Shakespeare. The market town itself displays more than 800 years of history, has a thriving community and offers a wide variety of leisure facilities and good shopping areas; the town centre has many independent and unusual arcades and galleries, where you can shop for souvenirs and knick-knacks.

Many visitors come here because of its connections with the great bard; the Royal Shakespeare Theatre puts on a regular program of performances and any visit would not be complete without a visit to Anne Hathaway's cottage; the thatched home of Shakespeare's wife is said to offer the most romantic views in England.

Another way to explore the life and times of Tudor England is at the award-winning Tudor World, where a short stroll along the only remaining cobblestones in Stratford, dating back to 1595, leads to a museum set in the huge 16th Century Shrieve's House Barn.

Stratford-Upon-Avon offers much more than Shakespeare, you might want to enjoy a boat trip on the River Avon or visit the Butterfly Farm, which houses the largest exhibit of butterflies and insects in Europe and offers a great day out for all the family. More lovely days out are close by in the beautiful Cotswolds countryside.

Come and get a taste of Olde England and search Stratford-Upon-Avon holiday cottages today.
