The
Experience

Stratford is a 12-minute walk by footpath across a field, and from the veranda you can see the church where Shakespeare is buried. The farm predates medieval Stratford with later additions to the house in 1860, though it has an earlier Georgian feel. All is chic, spacious and full of light with deco chandeliers, floor to ceiling sash windows, large uncluttered bedrooms and contemporary bathrooms. Wake to bird song, play the baby grand piano, enjoy croquet on the lawn and picnic in the gardens and orchards. Decima grew up here; she and David are charming hosts and passionate about art and architecture.

Reviews

As usual with Sawday's Special Places, the fabulous description comes a little short of the truth. Though in Shakespeare country, I felt I was walking into a Jane Austen novel in Decima's and David's graceful home. The two of them were marvelous hosts and quick to help with any need. Breakfast was the best I'd had in England (which is saying A LOT), the beautiful footpath through the field led to the banks of the gentle Avon, where there was a delightful regatta! Shakespeare in the park, and the amazing Warwick Castle just a short drive away. It truly could not have been more perfect.

Delightfully friendly hosts who were both extremely helpful on local recommendations (where to eat and visit, best route to drive to Oxford etc). Large, light and comfortable room. The breakfast was excellent and the B&B is well located for Stratford. Will definitely return!

S

A friendly welcome. Very relaxing peaceful place. Special attention to detail with fresh flowers in our room and personal advice from our hosts on where to dine and visit. Well worth a visit to this enchanting farmhouse.

Patsy

My friends and I were delighted that Cross o the Hill lived up to the write up. A thoroughly entrancing house and welcoming hosts who bent over backwards to make our stay as rewarding as possible. I have already recommended it to others for the position, high quality of accommodation and breakfasts, and helpful hosts.
