Surrounded by unspoilt countryside, and offering comfortable accommodation rich in character, this charming Stratford-upon-Avon cottage is a wonderful choice for a get-together with family and friends. There are five lovely bedrooms, one set on the ground floor, and the master benefits from en-suite facilities. The spacious, farmhouse-style kitchen offers a welcoming dining area, and the cosy sitting room at this Warwickshire cottage is accompanied by a warming open fire; a delightful addition on frosty evenings, whilst on warmer occasions, the patio doors can be swept open to invite inside a cooling breeze. Outside this Stratford-upon-Avon cottage, the large, private lawned garden is ideal for an afternoon’s alfresco feast, and the more energetic will appreciate the tennis court, which is available at pre-arranged times. A further two acres of unique wildlife garden, which is shared with the adjoining holiday cottage, will be adored by all, especially children and pets, whilst many footpaths and cycling trails can be easily found nearby should you wish to stretch your legs. Just two miles away, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, offers horse racing, the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, and many typically Tudor buildings at every turn, housing a very good selection of cafes, restaurants and traditional pubs serving real ales and excellent food.
