The Central England/Cotswolds region
Kingsmead Farm is situated in South Warwickshire, a rural county in the South Midlands of the UK. It is the ideal base to visit the historic and beautiful towns of Stratford upon Avon, Warwick and Royal Leamington Spa, as well as the wonderful countryside and villages of the Cotswolds to the South. Also the city of Birmingham is a just short train or car journey away.
There are many traditional Pubs and delightful Restaurants in the surrounding villages. The local village of Wellesbourne has a good range of local shops.
We are within walking distance of Charlecote Park, a historic 16th century Tudor manor house, now managed by the National Trust. There is much to see and investigate in the house, garden and park. Charlecote has been home to the Lucy family since the 12th century. Step into the house today and you will see how Mary Elizabeth Lucy spared no expense furnishing it in Victorian times. The gardens and parkland (inspired by 'Capability' Brown) offers miles of walks and views across the River Avon. A herd of fallow deer and flock of Jacob sheep have been in the park since Tudor times.
Kingsmead Farm is only 4 miles from the centre of Stratford upon Avon. A beautiful market town situated on the banks of the River Avon in the heart of rural Warwickshire and the renowned birthplace of William Shakespeare, Stratford has a range of activities and places of interest to keep you occupied. Whether you are interested in history, theatre, culture or just a fun day out Stratford has lots to offer including the world famous Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Shakespeare's houses and gardens and boating on the River Avon.
We are 15 minutes away from the historic market town of Warwick. Visitors to Warwick can enjoy the popular farmer's markets, shops, and restaurants as well as one of Britain's oldest medieval castles. Warwick Castle overlooking the River Avon is traditionally associated with the Earldom of Warwick and dates back to 1200 AD. It is one of the UK's most popular tourist attractions, where guests can tour the castle and enjoy many activities such as archery demonstrations, falconry and medieval knight shows.
Royal Leamington Spa is less than a twenty minute drive away, famous for its spa-waters and pump rooms in the 19th century. Today it offers a wide range of shops, restaurants, cinema, botanical gardens and fine Edwardian architecture.
