We stayed at Moorhen Cottage, Kendall Avenue this weekend whilst visiting family in the area and I have to say, I'm thoroughly impressed - It is a very well cared for and spotless holiday let. The rooms are well furnished and clever use has been made of the space within. The kitchen is to die for and we really enjoyed... More

The pace of life is slow which in turn slows you down and turns your mind off from the everyday fast paced antics that life throws us. A visit to the... More

Stratford has miles of canal paths to walk, right from the heart of Stratford, my favourite route is out towards Wilmcote, The start is by the new Premier Inn on the Birmingham road, out towards Wilmcote ( Mary Ardens House) and continue to the Edstone Aquaduct, if you keep going you'll reach Birmingham. There is a pub on the route... More
