The cottage is designed to offer guests a relaxing retreat in the heart of the Warwickshire countryside, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

This property lies in the village of Knightcote, in the heart of Shakespeare’s Country, within 600 acres of Warwickshire countryside, where you can enjoy nature walks to the nearby Burton Dasset Hills to experience spectacular views. Take a visit to the carp lake and feed the fish, stop by the vintage tractor collections with a play area for the kids. Just 15 minutes down the road you’ll find the riverside town of Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick offering an excellent selection of shops, pubs, restaurants, theatres and Warwick Castle. This great central location is perfect for exploring Oxford, the Cotswolds and Banbury with its Famous Cross and links to London by train.

Arriving at this country retreat you immediately feel at ease. Relax in the open-plan lounge/diner with its solid oak floor and original beams, artwork and antiques, snuggle up on the sofa with a good book and perhaps a glass of wine, while looking out across the open farmland views. If you stay in for the evening, the fabulous well-equipped kitchen, includes an electric oven with gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer and dishwasher for convenience. The dining area has a wooden farmhouse table with chairs for four. Heading upstairs to the first floor you will find a double bedroom with TV and ensuite bathroom with shower, wash basin and WC.

Lovely, light and roomy. Views to the front of sheep grazing in the field. Small secluded patio area at back with wonderful perfume of lavender surrounding me as I read outside. Our 11 year old granddaughter had a great time using the go-cart in the large hard surfaced area. Fiona gave us lots of ideas where to visit, among them Warwick Castle, StrRead moreatford Upon Avon, Compton Verney. She also cooked us a beautiful meal one evening. A truly wonderful holiday. Hide
