  • "We had a wonderful and comfortable stay."

    The cottage was one of the nicest and warmest we have stayed in and the hosts were friendly and helpful when needed. Having a washing machine and dryer was an added bonus which we really appreciated as we are from Australia and are travelling around the UK for 13 weeks.

    Rob and Marion were excellent hosts. Everything you could possibly need was provided. Comfortable bed for a good night's sleep. Ideal location for visiting Stratford, and lots of National Trust places within easy reach. Would recommend this to anybody.

    The pool was amazing for my boy he was scared of swimming before we came here and it has given him so much confidence in our short stay, so thank you. Can’t recommend this place enough and perfect location to explore Warwick.

  • "If this property had been the first one we had booked with Sykes we are unlikely to have tried any others."

    The property and surroundings bear little resemblance to the photo's shown and no way deserves a 4.7 excellent rating. The outside table and chairs and swing seat were dirty and clearly not intended to be used. I appreciate it is the countryside but the whole place needed a good tidy. The inside was rammed with old books and childrens games which were obviously being stored from elsewhere. Several of the appliances did not work properly, such as the shower door which we could not open. On a positive note the property was ideally situated for exploring many National Trust and other properties in the area.

  • "A lovely cosy cottage in a good location."

    Nice and quiet but near to a couple of nice pubs if you want to eat out. Plenty of national trust properties nearby and warwick castle is definitely worth a visit. Beware if you do visit the dungeon it is very dark and uneven. We did go into coventry but wouldn't recommend the park and ride as very strange and only a bus every 30 minutes. Unlike any other we've used. We would return to this cottage so that is a recommendation in itself.

  • "Lovely barn conversion property with simple tasteful decor."

    Open plan living area, well equipped and clean. Use of pool was great, plus spacious grass/wooded area with chickens, assorted seating and views of fields, in addition to table and chairs to front of property. Good base for visiting lots of areas and 2 NT properties very close, plenty of local pubs and pretty canals. Friendly hosts live on site. Excellent value and highly recommended. Suggestions: Photos could do with updating to reflect new furniture inside and out. And I agree with another comment - could do with an armchair in addition to sofa. Overall we had a lovely holiday. Thankyou. .

  • "Lovely quiet place to dissappear to."

    Although still near Warwick and areas to visit. Would recommend to couples looking for a base to explore Warwickshire and surrounding areas. Only one recommendation would be for either a second arm chair or a foot stool in lounge. Host very nice and the goodies for arrival were very much appreciated. Also the use of the swimming pool was great and lovely and warm. Would definitely return if in area again.

The cottage was warm and peaceful and very attractive. Basic supplies were greatly appreciated. We enjoyed being able to easily visit Oxford, Coventry, Warwick and Compton Verney from our base. In addition, the Stratford/Avon and Grand Union Canals are minutes away. There are good pubs with meals nearby. In all a winning cottage and location.

  • "We had a great October holiday."

    Main reason for selecting this property was proximity to Warwick Castle and the indoor swimming pool which was right next door to the cottage. Cottage was nice and cosy, really well equipped, great shower and friendly owners who looked in on us on arrival and live in main house if needed. Key fob gates so easy access. Stratford upon avon, Hatton locks and Kenilworth Castle all within a short drive. Co-op, fish and chip shop within about 3 miles and a local shop at Lapworth up the road plus good pubs and canal walks what more could you want. Many thanks J and Alex

About the location


Warwick 5 miles; Royal Leamington Spa 5 miles; Stratford-upon-Avon 10 miles; Kenilworth 11 miles;

The ancient village of Rowington lies in unspoilt Warwickshire countryside and offers many lovely walks including the Heart of England Way. The Grand Union Canal is close by as is the village country pub and restaurant which serves home-cooked food and real ales. The village boasts Rowington Manor, once owned by Catherine Parr and Shakespeare Hall, where it is said Shakepeare's family lived when he wrote 'As you like it'. There are two National Trust properties close to Rowington, Baddesley Clinton and Packwood House, with Wroxall Abbey, another fine house and the country seat of Sir Christopher Wren also near by. Close by, Lapworth Village is strongly associated with the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, as the leader of the plotters, Robert Catesby, was born and lived here, and his tomb is in Lapworth Church. Henley-in-Arden boasts one of the most unspoilt high streets in the country, which contains over 150 buildings listed as being of Special or Historic interest. The town has its own Heritage Centre, itself dating back to the 12th century, with many restaurants, traditional pubs and individual shops, as well as a selection of sports facilities including golf courses, tennis courts and fishing. Visit Stratford-upon-Avon, which is steeped in history and culture and lies on the banks of the River Severn. Experience Olde England by visiting Shakespeare's birthplace and many other houses connected to his family, which are open all-year-round and boast 16th Century furnishings and landscaped grounds and gardens. Enjoy one of his many plays at the world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Theatre. The River Avon offers river cruises, rowing and motor boat rides and many lovely walks. Warwick with its imposing medieval castle, Royal Leamington Spa with its beautiful Victorian and Georgian architecture and many unspoilt Cotswold villages and towns all make a great family day out.
