The Alveston Manor is a beautiful 4* hotel with a fascinating and long reaching history. There has been something on the site since the early 10th century when it was a monastic settlement. The oldest part of the current building dates from approximately 1500 and the owners have been adding on to it ever since. It was privately owned and occasionally held by the Diocese of Worcester until the 1940s when it was turned into a hotel.
Inside there are all the features you would expect from this sort of hotel. Beautiful wood panelling, Tudor beams, stained glass, huge stone fireplaces and lots of cosy areas with comfy armchairs. The room where we will be based, the Cedar Suite, is a huge room edged with window seats which look out over the beautifully maintained grounds. We have french doors which open directly out onto the gardens.
There is plenty of parking available at the hotel although it’s only a few minutes walk from the centre of town and so if you are staying centrally there would be no need to bring your car. This is also handy in case you’d like to visit the centre of Stratford for some lunch or maybe just for a stretch of your legs.
