Description from owner

Description

Old England at its authentic best! 'Fair Haven' cottage dates back to 1837 and is in the very heart of Stratford upon Avon town. Shakespeare's birthplace is just 3 minutes walk away. You will go back in time as you enter this attractive abode with its timber beams and sash windows and be amazed as it opens up to airy and light areas with your own enclosed private garden. With a wide variety of cafes, restaurants, shops and Shakespearean places of interest just minutes walk away there is always plenty to do. Even the theatre and river are a 10 minute stroll, with the railway station a 5 minute walk away for those coming by train. There are a number of good rate car parks within a 2 minute walk from the cottage.

Once you arrive, the car is not really necessary, so if you are happy to you could park it on free street parking 20/25 minutes walk away.

A gem of a place - enjoy the hustle and bustle of Stratford activities on your doorstep then escape to 'Fair Haven' for some relaxation. Great also for exploring the beautiful Cotswolds with their idyllic villages plus a day to remember at Warwick Castle.

The cottage used to be a '2 up, 2 down' but has been extended downstairs to include kitchen, sun room and living room. Upstairs is 2 bedrooms with a Jack and Jill style bathroom.

There is a box on the bookshelf in the living room full of tourist leaflets/pamphlets and bus timetables.

Travel cot bed and high chair available on request.

Please note there is a wood burner in the living room but this is NOT a working fire and no attempt should be made to start a fire in it.

Reviewed 30 Mar 2018

As other reviewers have said, the location of this cottage is perfect. Two minutes walk to good bars and restaurants, five minutes to Sheep Street, and a couple more to the RSC. The cottage is exactly as described and spotlessly clean. We had a great time sharing the cottage with our teenage son and when we return to Stratford, we won’t look anywhere else.
