A glorious farmhouse welcome just outside Stratford
Stamford Hall B&B is a handsomely renovated 18th century listed farmhouse five miles east of Stratford-on-Avon, within easy range of town but surrounded by rolling South Warwickshire countryside. The house is furnished with a mixture of antique, inherited and country furniture – though the two guest bedrooms are superbly comfortable and the plumbing well up to date.
The two guest bedrooms are at the top of the house, with exposed beams and far-reaching rural views. En-suite bathrooms have tubs and power showers, with tea and coffee facilities, Freeview TVs and wifi throughout. Both are spacious and gently decorated, one is a king-sized double and the other a twin.
You’re not confined to your room at Stamford Hall. On the ground floor you’ll find a large dining room where breakfast is served and a large, comfortably furnished living room, warmed by an open fire on cooler evenings. Outside there is a large walled garden where you’re often greeted with home-made cakes and refreshments: this has space for croquet but also mixed flower beds and in summer is a blaze of colour. There is also a wildflower meadow with owl boxes and beehives, sheltered by a hornbeam hedge.
Stamford Hall B&B suggests
Stamford Hall is the perfect place to stay for a visit to Shakespeare’s RSC: parking in Stratford-on-Avon is easy. It’s also centrally located in England, so is a great place for distant friends to reunite.

Stamford Hall is just five miles from Stratford-on-Avon, with its medieval town centre and the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. The area is known for its stately homes and sights. The 'Capability Brown parkland and art gallery of Compton Verney is only two miles away and is itself a good enough reason to plan a visit. There are castles at Warwick and Kenilworth to explore, Hidcote Gardens and the rolling countryside of the Cotswolds. Chipping Camden and Stow are just two of the lovely towns worth visiting, while the immediate area offers local pubs, golf at Brailes, cycle tracks and even camel treks. Stamford Hall is just off the Fosse Way for longer walks.
Your satnav may struggle to locate Stamford Hall. The safest approach is to either use a map or forget the post code and key in its co-ordinates (52.139403, -1.584487). Alternatively Stamford Hall's website has details of two common satnav misdirections - and how to recover from them.
"We loved staying here. Alice was the perfect hostess, from the lift to the local pub for dinner to the absolutely delicious food. We received a really warm welcome, with lovely lemon cake and a cuppa. Our room was great - really cosy, clean and relaxing with fabulous views. Breakfast was delicious - I even convinced Alice to sell me a tub of the compote it was so nice! A lovely setting, a home from home experience and a smashing host. Thoroughly recommended :-)"
