The Muddy Oar


Situated in the centre of Stratford Parks, a holiday home complex just outside Stratford-Upon-Avon, The Muddy Oar has been refurbished in a quirky nautical style. With picturesque views to the River Avon and beyond, the venue offers a luxurious spot for the holiday park’s guests to socialise and relax. Hospitality interior experts, Design at Source have styled a luxurious contemporary interior that reflects the history of the riverside location with an idiosyncratic yet tastefully restrained nautical theme. A range of Karndean flooring designs bring an authentic rustic style with a modern twist, complementing the wood structure of the building and highlighting different seating and activity zones. The distinctive décor of the lounge bar reflects the riverside building’s timber ribbed ceiling and porthole windows. Featuring modern industrial aspects, the interior combines eclectic metal and wood furnishings with a rich teal colour palette, luxury velvet and leather upholstery, nautical inspired memorabilia and historic riverside photographs. Intimate seating areas are defined with rich toned Knight Tile Aged Oak flooring laid in herringbone pattern. Identifying the bar area, the grey monochrome geometric pattern of Lansdown from the Heritage Collection clearly delineates the busy activity zone. Alongside the bar, a central social space with bench seating has been given a rustic feel with Art Select Reclaimed Chestnut, featuring a characterful design and authentic random plank layout.
