Enjoy a stunning 6-day break this July as we GoWightAway to Stratford and the Cotswolds.

Stratford-upon-Avon, a medieval market town in England’s West Midlands, is the 16th-century birthplace of William Shakespeare. Possibly the most famous writer in the English language, Shakespeare is known for his sonnets and plays such as ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and ‘Hamlet’. The Royal Shakespeare Company performs his plays in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and adjacent Swan Theatre on the banks of the River Avon.

The Ettington Chase Hotel, your accommodation for your stay, is set in 11 acres of landscaped grounds, only 6 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon. The hotel itself boasts a large swimming pool, sauna and fully equipped state of the art gym. The stylish bedrooms feature modern oak furniture, flat screen TV’s and free WiFi. The Tempus Bar and Restaurant features seasonal menus and room service is also available. Stratford-upon-Avon, just 10 minutes drive away, offers an exciting Shakespeare experience, including Anne Hathaway’s cottage and the Royal Shakespeare Company. Blenheim Palace can be reached in just a 40 minute drive from the hotel, and Warwick Castle is not far either!
