The Central England/Cotswolds region
The location is perfect for walkers and bird-watchers, and next to the holiday property there is a bowling green available by prior arrangement. Alcester itself is a small, attractive town at the heart of one of the most popular tourist areas in the country, 8 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon. The town’s heritage spans at least two millennia, from its origins as an important Roman town and fort located at the junction of the two roads - the Salt Way from Droitwich and Ryknield Street to the thriving medieval town and busy 18th-century coaching and staging post (traces of which can be seen today as part of Alcester’s exciting Heritage Trail).
Local attractions include Ragley Hall - seat of the Marquis of Hertford whose 19th-century ancestor, the fourth Marquis and his natural son, Sir Richard Wallace, founded the magnificent Wallace Collection in London, Coughton Court - one of the country’s great Tudor houses, home of the Throckmorton family since 1409 and its implication with the Gunpowder Plot, the medieval Kinwarton Dovecot - still housing doves in its circular walls, and many other notable country houses. Further afield, but within easy reach, are Warwick and Kenilworth Castles, the picturesque villages of the Cotswolds, the NEC and NIA at Birmingham and Coventry. Cheltenham is only one hour away by car. Alcester has an excellent range of shops, pubs and restaurants and a fine museum. Shops
100 yards, pub 50 yards.
There are many beautiful and interesting walks through typical Warwickshire countryside offering the opportunity to visit the attractive villages of Great Alne, Walcote, Haselor and Oversley Green. Alcester also forms part of the 'Heart of England Way', 'Arden Way' and 'Monarch's Way' making it a natural destination for walkers.
The area has pretty much all corners covered in the activity range. For example Draycote Sailing Club, Stratford Race Course, Cheltenham Race course, Fishing lakes and the internationally renowned Silverstone Circuit.
If you want variety on your door step you will be coming to the right place. From the large West Midlands Safari Park to the small Stratford Butterfly farm is just 2 of the hundreds of places to go. Also check out what is on at the NEC to see what show is on or band playing while you are here.
For treating yourself you also have a a great selection. Stratford-upon-Avon itself hosts many different shops but 40 mins on the train will get you to the BullRing Birmingham shopping centre.
