Ettington Chase Hotel

Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire

Superior room

Guest room


A grand Victorian manor house just outside historic Stratford-upon-Avon, with tennis courts and an indoor pool - includes breakfast

Stratford-upon-Avon is best known as being the birthplace of William Shakespeare, with its famous theatre (home to the Royal Shakespeare Company) and numerous historic buildings upholding his legacy with pride. Ettington Chase, just a few miles out of town, makes for a convenient prospect for both Shakespeare aficionados and those seeking more natural countryside pursuits among the rolling Cotswolds.

Set among 11 acres of well cared-for grounds you’ll find an imposing Victorian red brick manor, with Gothic-style arched windows and sharply angled tiled roofs. Interiors have been sensitively but smartly restored and reflect a tastefully contemporary style. Enjoy a quiet read in the hotel library, before dinner in the welcoming Tempus restaurant. The excellent hotel facilities include a heated indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and gym, all of which are available for guests to use. Outdoor activities can run to a scenic stroll or jog on marked trails through the grounds, as well as a set or two of tennis.
