The Passionate Pilgrim in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire
From: €369 nightly 3
The Passionate Pilgrim Self-Catering
As soon as you see this home's bright pink doorway, it wouldn't be a great leap to suspect that eccentricity lies on the other side. However, it's hard to prepare yourself for the level of full-on maximalism. In the living room alone, an antique dresser rubs shoulder with statement light fixtures, flourishing house plants and a gaggle of animal sculptures. Elsewhere throughout the property, there's a street art collection, offbeat furnishings and a leopard-print staircase. It could be too much, but guess what — it really works. It certainly helps that the home itself is so pleasant to live in, with a private patio area and wraparound garden complete with seating for sunny afternoons, as well as large bedrooms and a bathtub ideal for a dose of relaxation. Also, it must be said the location is wonderful, too. The address sits just inside the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which means there are plenty of rural days out nearby — the Arts and Crafts garden at Hidcote is only ten minutes away in the car, for instance. The town of Stratford-Upon-Avon and the Royal Shakespeare Theatre are a quarter of an hour's drive in the other direction, as well.
Home truths: *There's space for two cars to park on the driveway and there are additional spots on the road outside
*A maximum of two dogs are allowed to visit at no extra charge, but the host asks that they're not left on their own at any point and they're not to go on beds or furniture
*The host also requests that no outside shoes be worn inside
*The garden is enclosed
*The home is spread across two floors so it might not be suitable for guests with reduced mobility
