Well managed, great location, excellent breakfast, and views.

Use of a very good lounge.

We all enjoyed staying there.

We stayed at this lovely B&B overnight. Ellie is was a fantastic host and really made us feel welcome. The setting is idyllic beyond words, looking over a beautiful valley right in the Cotswolds. The bedroom was very nice and the sitting room downstairs was a lovely place to have breakfast. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Catch a show at the RSC in Stratford.

My husband and I and our three university aged children visited Shakespeare's View in July for two nights. We had a whole wing of the house to ourselves, which included two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and a living room downstairs overlooking the vineyard. We had the same beautiful view upstairs. Our rooms were tastefully decorated and the beds very comfortable.We slept well.
Elide, the owner cooked us a delicious English breakfast each morning, with fresh fruit and cereals, toast and homemade jams and even gluten free bread for me!
The house is situated outside the village of Snitterfield, close to Stratford upon Avon, within a few minutes drive to the "Park and Drive" (saves struggling with parking).
Thankyou Elide for a lovely stay. We hope to return again one day.

Snitterfield is a small village just a short drive from Stratford Upon Avon and we stayed at the Shakespears View twice during my recent visit back to the UK. The two rooms one a twin and one a double are in their own annex and we had use of a beautiful lounge for the guests only, which overlooks the stunning garden and orchards and the views of the Warwickshire countryside are beautiful. Breakfast is served in this room and there was an excellent choice and cooked to perfection. I would certainly receommend a visit.

Shakespeare's View, is everything you could want, wonderful location, in the country, but only 3 miles from the town centre. The service was friendly and very hospitable. The views from out bedroom were breathtaking. The beds were the comfiest we have ever slep in. The breakfast was to die for, fresh eggs from their free range chicken, homemade jams, fresh fruit, the list is endless. Perfect for a romantic break. We will definitely return to this jewel in Stratford Upon Avon

We stayed here in November 2007 as a halfway point between Yorkshire and Essex for a family get-together.
There were two couples and with Shakespeare's View's two lovely rooms and a separate guests lounge just for us it fit the bill perfectly.
It is situated in a quiet picturesque location overlooking the Warwickshire countryside and the owner's vineyard.
The owners were very friendly and made us feel welcome, and the breakfast served in a sunny dining room overlooking the gardens was superb.
Stratford-Upon-Avon town centre itself is about 5 mins away by car. There are plenty of places to eat and drink as well as taking in the history.
All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and anyone looking for a relaxing and value for money place to stay should look no further.
