Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, England
Old England at its authentic best! 'Fair Haven' cottage dates back to 1837 and is in the very heart of Stratford upon Avon town. Shakespeare's birthplace is just 3 minutes walk away. You will go back in time as you enter this attractive abode with its timber beams and sash windows and be amazed as it opens up to airy and light areas with your own enclosed private garden. With a wide variety of cafes, restaurants, shops and Shakespearean places of interest just minutes walk away there is always plenty to do. Even the theatre and river are a 10 minute stroll, as is the railway station for those coming by train. There are a number of good rate car parks within a 2 minute walk from the cottage.
Once you arrive, the car is not really necessary, so if you are happy to you could park it on free street parking 20/25 minutes walk away...

Fair Haven Cottage is in the perfect location, just a few minutes’ walk from the station and just round the corner from Shakespeare’s birthplace. The cottage itself is cosy, welcoming and beautifully clean. The owner, Rachel, could not have been more helpful, and I wouldn’t...More

About the neighborhood
There is plenty to do right on the doorstep of 'Fair Haven' cottage. Go back in time as you visit the 5 Shakespearean houses to see where Will was born and grew up. Be inspired by the Tudor buildings throughout the town centre. Stroll along the river banks of the Avon; jump on a river cruise or hire your own motor or rowing boat to explore the waters around Stratford. The canal also provides great waterside walks plus the opportunity to hire narrow boats and try your skill with the locks. Relax on an Open Top bus or chill out in the numerous cafes and restaurants. Enjoy the delights of Stratford market which was awarded the best private market in 2014 and attracts many visitors each week.
