Escape To Shakespeare Country

Darwin Escapes has further developed its offering of premium UK breaks with the opening of a new Stratford-Upon-Avon Lodge Retreat, deep in the heart of Warwickshire.

The 44 luxury lodges sit in an area of outstanding natural beauty, guaranteeing a getaway full of stunning sights but with the added intrigue of the nearby hustle-and-bustle of historic Stratford-Upon-Avon.

The nine different types of lodges offer a relaxed opportunity for self-catering holidays with fully fitted kitchens, floor to ceiling windows, large dining and living areas and, expansive decking – an ideal mix for families. Some offer private hot tubs. All are pet friendly

The Stratford-upon-Avon Retreat will be operating through the summer at capacity with full COVID safety protocols in place.

The site also hosts the Stratford Armouries Museum, now reopened and updated by Darwin Escapes, with its war exhibitions that include a collection of mementos from the life of Winston Churchill.

Known by many as the birthplace of the legendary poet and playwright, William Shakespeare, Stratford-Upon-Avon still revels in its connection to the brilliant wordsmith with a museum of his life located in the same house he was born in and continuing to the Holy Trinity Church where his body rests.

Darwin Escapes has developed extensive links with the area over recent years, including the sponsorship of The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) since 2018. This summer the RSC will be starting their summer season in the newly built “Garden Theater” and Darwin Escapes is the sponsor of “The Comedy of Errors” production.

Tickets for the production can be purchased at:

Darwin Escapes currently operates 24 holiday resorts and three golf courses across the UK, offering a mixture of beach, city, and countryside breaks as well as holiday home ownership.
