About Billesley Manor Hotel & Spa
Barely a stone’s throw from Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare penned his comedy ‘As You Like It’ at Billesley Manor in 1599. Not content with their illustrious past though, the hotel has just completed an extensive £5.6m refurbishment. The sumptuous interiors coupled by 11 acres of private grounds, an 11th century church and a Victorian-era topiary garden, offer that perfect peaceful sanctuary from the outside world.
