The Old Manor House, HalfordQueen Street, Halford, Shipston-on-Stour, Warwickshire, CV36 5BT, England
Tudor luxury in the Warwickshire Cotswolds
This beautiful Warwickshire bed and breakfast exudes character and style. Most of the house dates back to 1550, and history lives on in the exposed beams and period features. There’s a large drawing room for the exclusive use of guests, where antique furnishings and modern works of art sit comfortably together; warmed in the winter by an open log fire.
There are three guest bedrooms here, all beautifully equipped with comfortable beds, luxurious cotton linens, Ila-Spa bath products and bathrobes provided. The Underhill Room is a double, the Beecham can be a single or twin, and the Rowley can be a kingsize or a twin, with the option of a further single bedroom that can be booked to accommodate one more. All rooms have private bathrooms with baths and showers.
Guests here are free to use the spacious living room as well as the dining room (where breakfast is served). When the weather permits the grounds are a delight. Three acres of landscaped grardens – including a gazebo and a tennis court – slope down to the River Stour. The peace and tranquility is perfectly enjoyed from the terrace, where afternoon tea is served in the summer months.

The Royal Shakespeare Theatre (RSC) at Stratford is in easy reach, as are Warwick Castle and the larger towns of Gloucester, Oxford and Cheltenham. In the immediate area there are plenty of lovely villages with a selection of excellent places to eat. There are three nearby railway stations of which Banbury, with its direct link to London Marylebone, is perhaps the most useful. Birmingham Airport is 40 minutes away by car, London 90 minutes.
“Wonderful comfy beds in a lovely old part of the house but with super modern bathrooms. Gorgeous garden in such a pretty part of the world. Delicious breakfast and such welcoming hosts.”
