How near to Stratford do you want to be, and do you want to be on the canals or on the river mostly?

Canal:

 

Hill Farm marina at Wootton Wawen

 

River:

 

Stratford Marina (obviously!) :)

 

Welford marina

or

Welford boat station

 

or a bit further out

 

Evesham marina

or 

Sankey Marine

Did you mean Hill Farm Marina?  More like 5 hours, including 17 locks to Bancroft basin.

 

I guess in a cruiser Welford to Stratford would be possible in around 2 hours.

I did, and I edited it 10 minutes ago :D

 

It depends how flexible a "couple of hours" are - that's the nearest marina I can think of that way.

It is definitely the closest marina to Stratford on the canal, we had a short term morning there before the river festival last year.  It’s not cheap!

@snappytd didn't ask for cheap, he asked for close to Stratford-upon-Avon.  I assumed the two things would be mutually exclusive. :D

 

Not sure it that’s the case really,  but there are not many marinas in the area, so I guess supply and demand and all that.  Don’t get me wrong it’s nice at Hill Farm marina, but it is twice the cost of marinas at Napton.  Does not help the OP though.

You could try Dovecot Riverside Moorings at Barton. I moored there for 3 years. 

 

Dovecote Moorings, for narrowboat, cruiser and caravan breaks

 

It used to take me about 4 hours to Stratford on my widebeam but you'd do it a lot quicker.

 

However, anywhere on that river floods badly so make sure the risers are high as it floods quickly too you won't get to your boat.

There are some on line moorings a few locks up, I think its a little hire base with a few moorings available? Can't remember the name.  Also what looks like a big back garden with a few boats moored up by Wilmcote?
