About this listing

7 minutes walk away from Shakespeare's Birthplace, the shops, and the theatres, this one bedroom flat is situated in a characterful Victorian building. Centrally heated and window-seated, there is one double bedroom and sofa bed in the sitting room.

The space

The flat is in a Victorian pile that was converted in the 1970s. The house stands on land that used to belong to Shakespeare. It is painted pale blue and white throughout. The kitchen is very small but well equipped and I've produced many a happy meal there for friends. There is a Narnia wardrobe in the bedroom and a lovely deep bath (with a shower over it). There is wi-fi access, a cd-player (with a digital radio), but no television. The flat is on the first floor and there is no lift. There is good parking on the drive.

Guest access

Plenty of off-road parking in the drive. You can park anywhere in front of the house but not in front of the three garages. Full access to the whole of the flat (except one storage cupboard).

Interaction with guests

I live on the site, too, and if I'm around would like to say 'hello' but wouldn't expect to see you and would leave you to yourself.

Other things to note

There's a small file of information about the flat and the town in the flat for you. Bread, milk, cereal, tea, fresh coffee, butter, marmalade and jam, and fruit juice are left you for as many breakfasts as the supplies cover. There is one-off £30 charge for cleaning added to the cost.

It was clean, neat, & tidy. It was close to the town centre. It was comfortable. We had a good time. We never met Paul but arrival went well. The dog, Ziggy, from the cottage on the grounds is beautiful.

I absolutely loved my stay at Rowley Lodge! The flat was so comfortable and peaceful, and the light from the evening sun coming into the living room was pretty special! Paul left detailed information on the flat itself as well as Stratford-upon-Avon which came in really handy. Would most definitely recommend, and will hopefully return in the future!

Paul is a very gracious host. He welcomed us warmly upon our arrival, provided food for our breakfast, which was much appreciated, and gave us all the information we needed for our stay. The flat is clean and bright, located in a quiet area, and is within walking distance of the train station, grocery stores, Royal Shakespeare Theatre and other local attractions. Paul's wonderful collection of books is an added delight! We certainly recommend this flat for visitors to Stratford-Upon-Avon.

My parents and I enjoyed our stay in Rowley Lodge. It was well equipped and in a great location, close to the city centre. We appreciated the food in the cosy kitchen and all possible information Paul left in the welcome folder. Paul also has an extensive and wonderful book collection. I would definitely like to come back and highly recommend staying in Rowley Lodge.

This apartment is as listed. The kitchen is functional but cozy. I loved the neighborhood. It is an easy walk to downtown. Don't be worried that Rowley Crescent is not on the tourist map as it is only 1 block north of the map. Paul made us feel welcome with all the goodies he supplied for breakfast.

Good communication from Paul and arrangements made, although we did not meet. Flat was well located in walking distance from centre of town. Comfortable stay.

The flat was in a lovely quiet part of town and the building itself was very attractive. The living room was sunny with a nice window seat overlooking the garden and there are shelves full of wonderful books to browse through. The flat was clean and tidy. Paul had bought nice bread, provided butter, marmalade milk and tea bags and coffee. It was a great place to stay overnight.
