Rooms & Rates
This 4-star country-house hotel is located on the site of an 11th-century church, 15 minutes' drive from Stratford-upon-Avon and around 20 minutes' drive from Warwick.
Steeped in history, the Elizabethan manor boasts 11 acres of grounds incorporating a 100-year-old topiary garden, a fountain and the church where William Shakespeare reportedly married Anne Hathaway.
Warwick Castle, Charlecote Park, Tudor World and Ragley Hall, considered one of England's finest Palladian mansions, are all less than a 20-minute drive away. The pretty town of Stratford-upon-Avon, where you'll find Shakespeare’s Birthplace, Anne Hathaway's Cottage and Mary Arden's Farm, is less than 10 minutes away by car.
Facilities at the hotel include a health club with a fully equipped gym, an indoor swimming pool, a sauna and a steam room, plus tennis courts, a yoga hut and beauty rooms. Alternatively, guests can relax in the library, reputedly visited by Shakespeare himself.
The hotel offers the AA-Rosette Stuart Restaurant, with oak panelling and a fireplace, and The Great Hall with its minstrels' gallery, both situated in the old manor house. The AA praises the Stuart Restaurant for cooking that is "impressive" and "accomplished".
Rooms are split between the Manor House and the Cedar Barns, all with traditional décor and views of the hotel grounds. The AA says the "spacious bedrooms and suites" in a "country-house style" are "thoughtfully designed and well equipped". Dog-friendly rooms are available on request. Wi-Fi is free throughout.
