A handsome manor house set in stunning grounds, Alveston Manor hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon offers luxury, elegance and a real sense of history. The hotel’s 16th century origins contribute to an ambiance that’s in keeping with its location – two minutes from the glorious River Avon and a footbridge away from one of England’s most famous market towns: Stratford-upon-Avon.
4-Star Hotel Stratford-Upon-Avon
Formerly a 16th century hall which was further developed during the 17th and 18th centuries, Alveston Manor certainly has a touch of Shakespearean style about it, with Elizabethan-inspired design features including timbered beams, wood panelling and beautiful stained glass. Some even say that the first performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream took place outdoors in a location that is now part of the hotel’s grounds. The site certainly has a colourful history that dates back to pre-Roman times.
Today, the aura of Alveston Manor’s historic past blends seamlessly with contemporary, four-star luxury to create a warm and sophisticated atmosphere. With a fabulous spa and leisure club, two top-notch restaurants, parking for guests, and magnificent grounds - plus excellent meeting and event facilities - you’ll find all you need to switch off, relax and thoroughly enjoy the experience.
The ideal base for enthusiasts of the Bard, Shakespeare’s birthplace and Anne Hathaway’s cottage are within walking distance of the hotel, as is the centre of Stratford-upon-Avon itself. Coffee houses, antique shops and artisan producers ensure the quaint side streets are full of life and the riverside is an integral part of the town, with the Royal Shakespeare Theatre standing proudly on its banks, open parklands running alongside and an endless parade of gleaming, preening swans on display. You’re also spoiled for choice when looking to explore further afield, with easy access by road to the glorious Warwickshire countryside and the picturesque Cotswolds.
Whether you’re visiting for a romantic weekend, celebrating at a spectacular wedding, hosting a cutting-edge conference or paying homage to the nation’s most revered poet and playwright, you’ll be inspired by every minute of your stay.
