Choosing cottages with hot tubs in Stratford-Upon-Avon will bring you to a wonderful medieval town in the splendid Warwickshire countryside. The town has grown along the pretty banks of the River Avon and is most famously known as the birthplace of William Shakespeare, possibly England’s most celebrated writer. Brimming over with culture and history it’s a great base for a self-catering holiday and there is nothing better than relaxing in hot bubbles at the end of the day under a starlit sky.
With more than 800 years of history and heritage the town now also boasts a thriving community with a choice of leisure facilities, great shopping in arcades and galleries and a wonderful choice of cafes, gastro pubs and restaurants to sample the local delicacies.
Many people come to experience a performance at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre which has a regular programme of events to tempt you and a visit to Stratford would not be complete without a visit to Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, the thatched home of Shakespeare’s wife, set in glorious gardens with fabulous countryside views.
A visit to the award-winning Tudor World will take you back to the 16th century as you stroll along the only remaining cobblestones in Stratford leading you to a museum set in the large Shrieve’s House Barn. Another way to see the area is a boat trip on the River Avon which opens up unique views of the Royal Shakesepare Theatre and Holy Trinity Church. For something a bit different try the Butterfly Farm with the largest indoor collection of butterflies in a simulated leafy tropical environment.
There’s lovely walking and cycling and with the Cotswold nearby you will be spoilt for choice. Hot tub breaks in Stratford-Upon-Avon go very quickly so make sure you book yours today and plan your trip to Olde England.
