A superb YHA Hostel just a mile and a half from Stratford.

YHA Stratford-upon-Avon

Hemmingford House Alveston Stratford-Upon-Avon Warwickshire CV377RG 01789 297 093

We say

It's not your average hostel accommodation, indeed Stratford's YHA is housed in a fabulous Georgian mansion set in its own extensive grounds just a mile and a half out of town. It has 132 beds in all, ranged across dorms, private and family rooms, many of the latter en-suite. There is onsite catering and a licensed bar, self-catering facilities within the hostel, as well as a number of nearby pubs and restaurants just a few minutes walk away in Tiddington and Alveston. There's on-site parking and free wifi in communal areas, and the bus into Stratford stops just outside the hostel and takes just 10 minutes. You'll struggle to find better value for money in the area .

They say

Only two miles from Shakespeare's birthplace, this magnificent Georgian mansion, set in three acres of grounds, is perfect for a budget family break. Recently renovated, this hostel offers 32 refurbished bedrooms, 16 with en-suites, showcasing the best of the YHA experience. With easy access into the historic Stratford-upon-Avon and the chance to see performance by the world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company, YHA Stratford-upon-Avon offers the perfect base for a history-filled family holiday, or a school trip.  Only a short distance from the historic Warwick Castle, one of England's finest examples of a medieval castle, there is history to be discovered by all. After a day of exploration our new restaurant offers a delicious à la carte menu and children's menu, or sit back with a local drink in our stylish bar.
