We also offer quality and affordable en-suite B&B accommodation in our really cosy converted cottages. These are located in a courtyard at the rear of the main Buildings, many with their own front door! A peaceful nights sleep is guaranteed! We also offer free parking through the narrow archway, subject to availability. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout. So, business or pleasure, you will be well looked after at the Shakespeare Inn.
