The 4-star Hallmark Hotel The Welcombe Stratford upon Avon is set in 157 acres of beautifully landscaped, Italian-style gardens on the outskirts of Stratford-upon-Avon. The Grade II-listed Jacobean-style hotel, which was originally built in 1886, features an oak-panelled lounge with a large fireplace, and some of the rooms feature 4-poster beds. It also has an 18-hole Championship golf course challenging par of 70, all-weather tennis courts, a health club and a spa with an indoor swimming pool, and an AA-Rosette-Award-winning restaurant.
The property is about two miles outside of historic Stratford-upon-Avon, the famed birthplace of William Shakespeare. It is near the Costwolds, 8 miles southwest of Warwick, 22 miles south of Birmingham, and less than five minutes' drive from Junction 15 off the M40. The Royal Shakespeare Theatre and scenic River Avon are both within the town, as well as the Swan Theatre. Warwick Castle is a 13-minute drive away, and Anne Hathaway’s Cottage – a picturesque timbered farmhouse that was the childhood home of Shakespeare’s wife – is in the nearby village of Shottery, about a mile west of Stratford-upon-Avon.
The hotel's AA-Rosette-Award-winning á la carte Trevelyan Restaurant serves a variety of British and European dishes made using seasonal produce. The restaurant has views of the hotel's Italian gardens where, weather permitting, guests can dine al fresco on the hotel's terrace with views of the surrounding countryside. As well as an 18-hole golf course, the hotel's facilities include tennis courts, an adjacent spa with an indoor swimming pool, a variety of thermal treatments, an external pool, a health club with a gym, an aerobics studio, fitness classes, and a range of health and beauty treatments (extra charges apply). There is also a spacious conservatory where you can have light lunches between treatments.
The hotel has a range of rooms, apartments and suites to choose from, some featuring 4-poster beds and garden or hill views. All rooms feature contemporary décor, 24-hour room service, an Apple iMac TV/computer, air conditioning, mineral water, tea- and coffee-making facilities, satellite televisions with Sky Sports, and free Wi-Fi.
