Cottages in Warwickshire
Follow in the footsteps of England’s greatest playwright in the beautiful heart of England
This is a land of literary greats. Where glorious rolling countryside, meandering waterways and magical, medieval castles all jostle for the limelight under the everlasting legacy of Sir William Shakespeare.
Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace and resting place of Shakespeare pays tribute to its most famous resident in impressive fashion. There are no less than three theatres including the world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company. Walking tours and guided experiences will help you get under the skin of the town. The stars of stage and screen vie to perform here and tickets are highly sought after when a big name appears on the billing. If you are visiting during the summer, an open-air performance at the Lydia and Manfred Gorvy Garden Theatre is a must. There is much more to Stratford-upon-Avon, however. This historic market town lies on the River Avon giving rise to a variety of water-based activities from leisurely boat rides to stand-up paddle boarding. Stratford is also a festival town with a varied and diverse array of events throughout the year. These include the highly regarded literary festival and Victorian Christmas market.
Just a short drive from Stratford, you can step back in time with a visit to Warwick Castle. Dating back more than 1,000 years, this medieval masterpiece is now an exceptional day out for the whole family. Or explore the Tudor Towers and Elizabethan Garden at Kenilworth Castle. Those in search of urban delights can explore the Regency, Georgian and Victorian streetscapes that weave through Royal Leamington Spa,
Enchanting villages and historic market towns lie scattered across a bucolic landscape. Hundreds of years ago it was the site of the first battle of the English Civil War in 1642. Now you’ll find thick woodlands, canal towpaths to wander and miles and miles of rolling countryside. Spend your days filling your lungs with fresh county air.
Lying snugly in central England this charming county offers a wealth of attractions and the oh-so beautiful Cotswolds touching its southernmost border add to the appeal.
