The Central England/Cotswolds region
Wilmcote is ideally located for touring Shakespeare Country and the lovely Cotswolds. Stratford Upon Avon is 3 miles away, a bustling market town and home to The Royal Shakespeare Theatre and the birthplace of William Shakespeare; England's greatest poet and playwright.
Wilmcote is most famous for Mary Arden's House, the childhood Tudor home of Shakespeare's mother, only 0.5 mile distant.
This is an old village and is listed in the Domesday Book of 1086, but little is known about it between then and the sixteenth century. The Stratford-upon-Avon Canal in 1816 was routed through Wilmcote because of its quarries.
Stratford upon Avon
The Historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon boasts the Birthplace & the 5 family homes of William Shakespeare & his family . Experience the 16th. century life with a day out at Mary Ardens Farm in our village of Wilmcote. Learn about Williams early life & see the beautiful romantic thatched cottage of his wife Anne Hathaway.
The Royal Shakespeare Theatre, recently reopened after extensive refurbishment, is in nearby Stratford where Shakespeare's plays are magnificently presented.
Englands' finest medieval castle, Warwick Castle, is just 15 miles distant. Explore the castle, the dungeons and the fabulous extensive grounds.
There are many outstanding National Trust houses and gardens nearby, including Charlecote Park, Packwood House, Baddesley Clinton, Upton House and Coughton Court. Ragley Hall Estate and Gardens are 10 minutes by car.
Within a short drive are the beautiful Cotswold villages of Chipping Campden, Broadway and Mickleton (home of the Pudding Club). There are the beautiful Hidcote Manor Gardens nearby, Batsford Arboretum, Moreton-in-Marsh with its famous market.
There are many excellent traditional country pubs and fine restaurants serving good food and locally brewed real ales. We will be happy to advise on the best venues to suit your taste.
Birmingham city centre, with its stylish shopping malls, restaurants and Symphony Hall, is about 40 minutes by train. The National Exhibition Centre is approximately 40 minutes drive.
Three Counties Show, Cheltenham and Stratford Racecourses are just some of the additional places to visit.
For those who fancy a more active holiday there's horse riding, clay pigeon shooting, horse racing, fishing, walking, cycling, and there is even gliding at the local gliding club at Snitterfield or microlighting at nearby Long Marston airfield.

"Great, peaceful boutique cottage!!"
I took my wife and 7 month old for a long weekend over Easter for a little 'Family Time'. The cottage was fantastic and very comfortable with everything we needed to feel at home. We would like to thank Sarah for being 'on hand' for anything to make our stay more relaxing.....even though she was on a break herself!! Location was good with a very pleasant walk along the canal in to Stratford upon Avon and the train station was also very handy. My wife and I would definitely like to return in the future.

"Very cosy and comfortable!"
Sarah, our host, was very welcoming and attentive during our weeks stay. The accommodation was stylish, spacious and well equipped and the under floor heating ensured that we were always warm and comfortable despite the grim weather outside.
The cottage is well placed for Stratford and visiting surrounding villages and towns such as Warwick and Leamington. We would definitely stay again if visiting the area and recommend it to others without hesitation.
Thank you Sarah for your kind attention during our stay.

"A real gem of a find."
A beautifully presented property in a lovely village within walking distance of two pubs and the train service into Stratford which takes approximate 10-15 minutes.
Sarah & Richard were the perfect hosts and nothing was ever too much trouble.
We found the area perfect for walking & cycling, having some of the best countryside in Warwickshire on the doorstep.
