The Central England / Cotswolds / Warwickshire region
Goldicote is just outside a small village called Loxley.
Stratford Upon Avon only 4 miles away is a beautiful Town and home, most obviously, to The Royal Shakespeare Theatre as well as William Shakespeare's Birthplace - and a total of five Houses connected with him to visit.
This whole area is steeped in History - National Trust Properties and Gardens, Heritage Properties, Landscaped Gardens, Castles, Canals, Moated Houses, Water Parks, Farm Parks, Arboreteums, Museums, Ramblers Walks..........You can play Golf, hire a Motor Boat or Rowing Boat, take a trip on a Barge, hire a Punt, go up in a Glider, visit a Haunted House, take a Balloon ride, walk the longest Aquaduct in Europe, go Clay Pigeon Shooting, buy scrumptious local produce at our superb Farmers Market, visit a local Brewery, enjoy a night at the Theatre, eat in the most wonderfully diverse array of Restaurants, Bars and Hotels - and all within a five minute car ride of the Cottage! There are few finer places in the UK to go shopping than Stratford Upon Avon, Warwick, Leamington Spa, Birmingham and all of these places are just a short distance away. What could be better than going out for the day into the hustle and bustle of these major Towns and then returning to the Cottage to change for Dinner out at one of our superb Local restaurants. Whether you wish for simple English food or perhaps Chinese, Greek, Caribbean, Italian, Thai, French - these, and more, are all available a short distance away.
There is more to see and do than we have managed in the years that we have lived here, and we will happily recommend to you days out based around your personal preferences.
The Stratford upon Avon area
Being only 20 miles from central Birmingham, 30 miles from the NEC, 4 miles from Stratford Upon Avon, 12 miles from Leamington Spa and Warwick, and only a 30 minute car journey from many Towns and Villages in the Cotswolds there are umpteen things happening throughout the Year around and about in the area.

Had a four night stay here over Easter 2013, what a fantastic time we had. Cottage was everything it promised, very comfortable with all amenities and surprisingly large!! Great welcome from the owner who was on hand to answer all we needed to know about the location.
Had some great days out in both Stratford upon Avon and Warwick. After all that walking was great to get into the Spa bath in the evening.
7 year old son loved the pool table and the trampoline in the adjoining field - just a shame that he is afraid of animals so wasn't keen to use it a second time due to the chickens.
Would love to come back in the summer when we can make more use of the lovely garden (it was extremely cold this easter!)
One additional point, response great on original booking enquiry and answered all our queries promptly on email before we went.
So pleased that you and your family enjoyed the Easter Break at Bluebell Cottage and found it to be comfortable and spacious.
We are glad to hear that your son liked the trampoline,as for the chickens they can be extremely inquisitive.
Thank you for taking time to write a review and we hope to see you again in the summer and hope the sun will shine.

This is a nice well-equipped cottage with a big kitchen/conservatory with views over the countryside. It is located in a very quiet area with good walks and pubs nearby in the villages of Loxley and Ettington. Stratford is within easy reach just 10 minutes drive away, if that. The 2 bedrooms are small but comfortable and the bathroom is a good size with a shower/bath including a "spa" option. The living room is also a good size with a proper wood stove for extra heating and a sofa bed for extra guests. There is a nice little garden outside too which backs on to open fields. The owners are very friendly and helpful and live next-door so are on-hand to help most of the time in the event of any problems. Overall, we would definitely recommend this place and hope to come again.
We are delighted to know that you found the cottage to be well equipped, in a quiet location set in the countryside, with walks to the local villages but only four miles away from Stratford.
We thank you for taking the time to write a review and hope to see you again in the future.
