About

The Cock Hotel Stony Stratford near Milton Keynes is situated in the historic Buckinghamshire market town of Stony Stratford within easy reach of the Milton Keynes via the A5 and Silverstone Race Circuit. The Cock Hotel a 15th Century coaching inn rose to national pre-eminence in the great age of coach travel with as many as 100 coaches a day coming into the town. The Cock Hotel was the official staging post for the famous Manchester Flier which took a 25-minute stop at The Cock Hotel. The time allowed for lunch at the Cock was 25 minutes so passengers had to eat fast. One of them on more than one occasion was Charles Dickens who based Mr Turveydrop in Bleak House on a local dancing instructor Joseph Hambling (or is that another cock and bull story ). Other travellers staying at the hotel and The Bull opposite vied with each other in the telling of outrageous tales of the road from whence the famous phrase Cock and Bull story derives. Today the hotel is very popular with locals and travellers alike and is renowned for its welcoming atmosphere and great hospitality. Hotel has a large car park. (from LateRooms.com)
