The space

Private off street parking for 2 cars in front of the House - a real benefit in Stratford. An ideal base on a quiet street for visiting both Stratford and the surrounding area. We are the owners of this 1879 home. It has retained many or its original features including original pine flooring, wooden panel doors and sash windows but is light, spacious and offers comfortable modern living. The home has been completely renovated to include bathroom with in floor heating and large shower. A well equipped and bright kitchen. There is also free high speed wi-fi, direct Ethernet connections throughout & TV with Netflix and cable. Linen and towels are provided as is complimentary tea and coffee and kitchen basics to get you started.

We love this home, have known the previous owner and as such it's been a home from home for us. Our son in the '00's spent many days as a toddler roaming this house and gardens, and we are happy to have been able to renovate this home with a view to keeping its 'feel' being one that you constantly want to return to. You will find us in the not so distant future living here-so enjoy it now until such a time comes. We know you'll love it (and the neighbourhood) as much as we do

We both share a passion for good wholesome food. Kevin has worked previously for 15 years at some of the U.K.'s and Irelands finest 'Relais & Chateaux' Country Inns and Hotels in their restaurants before moving to Stratford from Ireland in 1993. Kim is a native of Stratford and has traveled extensively on a private yacht catering to crew and invited guests. Both of us now enjoy life together in the great community of Stratford with our son among family and friends. Together we hope to nourish your body and soul.

I travel with culture in mind. Whether it's quietly meanering a small village or exploring the big city, getting to meet the locals is paramount to the experience. Language isn't the barrier, a smile and a humble willingness to partake usually overcome any preconceived barriers to friendship. A lifelong background in hospitality focused on the culinary arts has opened my horizons for many years now. Theatre, architecture, music and scenery usually make up the decision on my 'where to next' trip.
