Minerva is a spacious one bedroom ground floor apartment having its own front and back doors giving it the feel of a single storey cottage rather than an apartment.
Minerva is located in John Street which comprises attractive town houses, many dating back to the Georgian era. Minerva is part of Montague House which has been sympathetically built to fit in with the Georgian architecture. John Street joins Guild Street where the gated entrance to Montague House is located, just yards from the rear of Shakespeare’s birthplace.
The apartment is within comfortable walking distance of all that Stratford has to offer; theatres, Shakespeare properties, markets, shopping, restaurants, river walks and boating, gardens and much more.
The centrally heated apartment consists of: an entrance hall with coathanging and bookshelves; a large sitting room with a 3 seater sofa and armchair, and a fireplace fitted with a modern electric fire; a double bedroom with King-size bed, large fitted wardrobe, chest of drawers and a full-length mirror plus LCD TV with integral DVD player and ipod dock; fully tiled bathroom with full-sized bath fitted with an over-bath shower and screen, low-level flush WC, hand basin, shaver point and heated towel rail. There is a fully fitted, well equipped kitchen/diner which leads out into the car port through the back door. It is equipped with a glass dining table and 4 chairs, a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer and oven with hob, plus everything else you will need for a self-catered stay including a breadmaker and coffeemaker. We provide plenty of glassware, crockery, cutlery and serving dishes to make dining in as special as you desire.
We have equipped the apartment with a selection of CDs, DVDs and books to ensure a "home from home" feel after sampling the delights of Stratford. There is free WiFi and an LED Smart TV (Freeview) with a Blu-ray/DVD player. All linen and towels are included in the rent as is all electricity. You will find the gated parking space a real boon in central Stratford. The apartment is within easy walking distance of all shops, Marks and Spencer food hall is just across the road.
A picnic basket and chairs are provided, very welcome for open air theatre performances during the summer months. The apartment is fully serviced prior to arrival and the key holder will meet you in order to answer any questions you may have about the apartment.
Golf and fishing are within walking distance as are tennis and swimming. There are guided bus, river and walking tours available all year round. An event not to be missed is Shakespeare's Birthday celebrations during the week of 23rd April. Stratford upon Avon is surrounded by beautiful countryside dotted with picturesque villages, castles, historic country houses and gardens. Europe's largest butterfly farm is about a 5 minute walk away, at the start of the historic Tramway walk.
We also have a studio apartment in Bancroft Place that is also available for holiday letting. You can find out more at http://www.4bancroftplace.com/
