Stay over night to get the true Stoke Bruerne experience
Unless you’re lucky enough to own your own narrow boat, like our guest writer Jeff, you’ll more than likely be needing a place to stay whilst you visit Stoke Bruerne.
Although the village is a little far from most major chain hotels, there’s a decent selection of accommodation options which should suit most tastes and budgets. Everything from spacious campsites to cosy little B&Bs can be found in the local area – we’ve done the hard work for you and sought out the best value places that will give you a good night’s sleep.
Each of these places are only a short distance from the quaint village of Stoke Bruerne, where you’ll be able to while away many a peaceful Summer’s day – just don’t forget to book well in advance to avoid disappointment!
The Walnut Tree Inn, Blisworth
Recipient of Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence for four years in a row, this super traditional pub, restaurant and inn is a perfect choice for families or older travellers. The rooms are well furnished, the menu on offer has a great selection of pub grub and we’ve heard tell that the locally sourced ales could give our very own Navigation Inn a run for their money!
With room rates starting as low as £65 per night, the prices are very good value – head to their website to get the best deals.
Graham’s B&B, Shutlanger
You may have to pay a pretty price to stay at Graham’s B&B in Shutlanger, just a short walk away from Stoke Bruerne, but every penny will be well spent at this fantastically plush overnight accommodation.
Graham’s prices start from £120 per night, with a choice of four rooms to pick from including a double with an ensuite – you can find him on AirBnb right here.
Colin’s Cottage, Stoke Bruerne
You don’t get much closer to the centre of the action than this. Colin’s Airbnb property is right slap, bang in the middle of Stoke Bruerne, set just back from the edge of the canal. Although it’s all traditional stone wall and slate on the outside, the inside is super modern and ultra stylish.
When you stay within the grounds of the 17th century Dove cottage you’re just a minute’s walk away from the museum, cafe and pubs that make up the heart of Stoke Bruerne.
No. 3 and No. 4 Canalside Cottages, Stoke Bruerne
These two privately owned properties were originally built to house the workers of the local corn mill. After the mill closed down in 1913, they were turned into residential accommodation and so they have remained ever since.
At around £300 to £550 for a week’s worth of accommodation, these 4-bed cottages are great for a comfortable, cosy stay in Stoke Bruerne – plus you’re close enough to the canal to almost touch it.
Waterways Cottage, Stoke Bruerne
Just set back from the canal, the Waterways Cottage offers a variety of studio apartments. Although the experience is closer to that of a B&B rather than a hotel, you’ll find that your stay at Waterways will still feel secluded and calm.
With a place to relax outside, as well as jacuzzis in some rooms, this is a great choice for anyone looking for a romantic break away for the weekend.
