Stamford Hall

Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire
Bed & Breakfast

5 miles from Stratford in rolling Shakespeare country, an elegant house with garden views, artworks and delicious homemade produce


2 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Soft hills and lines of poplars bring you to the high, pretty red-brick Georgian house with a smart hornbeam hedge. James, whose art decorates the walls, and Alice look after you impeccably but without fuss. You have a generous sitting room overlooking the garden, with gleaming furniture, early estate and garden etchings, and pastel blue sofas. Peaceful bedrooms are on the second floor and both have charm: soft wool tartan rugs on comfy beds, calming colours, attractive fabrics, restful outlooks. Wake to a delicious full English breakfast; walk it off in open countryside or a day out exploring Stratford.

James &Alice were very warm and hospitable. The room & facilities were very clean and well appointed, and the beds were very comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay and intend to make a return visit. I thoroughly recommend this b&b.

David, Washington

The four of us were warmly welcomed by Alice - and it was delightful to have afternoon tea with delicious home made apple cake in the beautiful garden. We liked our adjoining en-suite rooms in the attic, and the cooked breakfast on Sunday morning with home made jams and fruit compote was delicious. Have already recommended this lovely B&B to neighbours & friends and plan to return ourselves.

Lynne, Shere

Alice and James were very welcoming and friendly. The room and en suite bathroom were spacious and comfortable with a lovely view over the fields. The breakfast was splendid and I really enjoyed the compote and home produced honey. James and Alice were fascinating hosts and we had interests in common. When we returned from our day out Alice gave us plates and cutlery for our room picnic. They are knowledgeable about the local area and gave us good recommendations, including where to go to mass. We really want to pay them a return visit. The location is beautifully quiet. A real get away.

Peter, Washington

This is a really welcoming and comfortable place to stay. We really enjoyed sitting in the garden with a cup of earl grey and slice of homemade lemon drizzle cake after a long journey. It is not far into Stratford Upon Avon by car and there is plenty of parking there. The room was really comfortable and peaceful and we had a really good night's sleep. The cooked breakfast was delicious. Thank you Alice and James.

What a delightful, peaceful place to stay! James & Alice were so kind and such generous hosts. We were welcomed with a pot of tea and delicious lime drizzle cake, thank you Alice! Our room was spacious, quiet and immaculately clean. A wonderful breakfast to start our days. James & Alice recommended places to visit locally which helped us make the most of our stay. Thank you both for looking after us so well. We left many places still to visit, so we will be returning as soon as possible.

Paul, Gloucestershire

Alice and James were wonderful hosts. They were very welcoming. The room was clean and beautifully decorated. We had an incredible cooked breakfast in the morning. Only 20 minutes from Stratford, it was a perfect location for us to do a countryside walk (Alice's recommended 4 mile round walk was delightful) as well as explore everything Stratford has to offer. I would highly recommend the b&b and we will be back!
