The accommodation was perfect and just as described, beautifully clean with so many little touches that made it feel welcoming. Ideally situated for exploring Stratford on Avon on foot, just a short walk into town, either directly down towards Shakespeare's House or along the tow path. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this accommodation, particularRead morely to anyone such as myself who has mobility issues. It was so nice to be just able to walk & not rely on the car. Hide
