Top 10 Pre-Christmas Escapes by Adrian Mourby

"If you’re looking for a theatre break before Christmas, this hotel – literally a gentleman’s townhouse – provides the perfect base. It’s a mere three-minute walk from the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford. Moreover it sits opposite the old half-timbered grammar school - King Edwards - that William Shakespeare is believed to have attended and is adjacent to New Place, the site of his grandStratford retirement home. In fact as you walk to the theatre on a dark wintry night, you are passing alongside Shakespeare’s garden. It’s thought that his land extended all the way to the river Avon on which the memorial theatre now sits.

Visit New Place if you possibly can. The house Shakespeare bought and extended was, sadly demolished in 1759 but its lines have been recreated in a huge illustrative garden. This is the nearest thing you’ll find to a Shakespeare theme park in Stratford. The Townhouse itself has a grand Strawberry Hill Gothic facade with the kind of ogee windows and crenelated parapets that became fashionable at the end of the eighteenth century. Looking at it from the side however you can see the half-timbered seventeenth-century building that the Hunt family of Stratford lived in for over 200 years. The Hunts were wealthy lawyers in the town and able to afford to gentrify their house in the new style.

Opening as a hotel only in 2010, the Townhouse is a friendly and fun place to stay with just 12 bedrooms, framed quotes from Shakespeare on the walls and two staircases, one grander than the other. The lesser of the two was built by the Hunts for servant access while the larger -under a lovely roof lantern skylight- was designed for the ladies of the house to descend elegantly. Today this staircase rises to a landing with a huge mirror that seems to double the size of the whole hotel.

On the ground floor there a small but busy bar that segues effortlessly into the restaurant. Here the set menu, available from 5pm to 630, is ideal if you’re going to the theatre. My advice is have two courses before you leave for the show and ask if you can have dessert in your room when you get back. I’ve done this before and it’s lovely, celebratory way to end a night at the theatre."
