  • "This is our third stay at Hock-tide and the positive comments made in the previous two reviews still apply."

    We stayed there with our cockapoo dog Bonnie (her third visit too) and the cottage is well presented and clean - I'm fussy about both! Some lovely interior styling and the extra welcome goodies - bread, milk, eggs etc - are a kind and thoughtful gesture. It is in a great location if you are taking a dog, with the lovely Abbey Fields walk just opposite and it is convenient to stroll into town. There are lots of good pubs and restaurants within walking distance too. As we have said before, we'll be back!

    So glad you came back to stay at Hock-Tide again! Thanks for your lovely comments which are very much appreciated! We hope you’ll all be back again soon! Ray, Mickie, & Marvel (woof!) Property Owner

  • "We were impressed how fully equipped the kitchen was and everything worked."

    Very clean and cosy cottage. We also enjoyed the technology provided i.e. Alexa. We found the bed very comfortable but not the armchairs. The rug under the bed impedes the wardrobe door. The location and history of the cottage very interesting. Loved the Abbey Field park across the road and our little dog loved it too. Overall we enjoyed our stay in the 18th century cottage, a really pleasant stay.

    Thank you for leaving us your feedback - much appreciated. We're glad overall you enjoyed your stay! Ray, Mickie, & Marvel (woof) Property Owner

  • "We stayed at hock tide cottage whilst I was attending a course in the local area."

    It was super comfortable, very welcoming and clean. The location is quiet, which made for a nice relaxing evening in front of the fire. We will be hoping to book ourselves into Hock Tide Cottage again in April to complete my course.

    So glad you enjoyed your stay at Hock-Tide and we believe we’ll be seeing you again very soon! Ray, Mickie, & Marvel (woof!) Property Owner

  • "We stayed at Hock-Tide cottage in October 2022 and this was a return visitwhich says it all!"

    . Everything was just as good as before - the cottage was clean, with some nice styling and the owners had left some bread, milk, eggs, biscuits etc which was a lovely gesture. A perfect spot to explore Kenilworth with short walks to the old town and the town centre. Abbey Fields (directly opposite the cottage) is brilliant for dog walking too. For two adults and one dog it is a great place to stay and needless to say we will be back again! Maggie F.

    Hi Maggie! So pleased you came back, and once again thanks for your great feedback! Look forward to seeing you again soon! Mickie, Ray, & Marvel (woof) Property Owner

  • "Property was in a lovely location just tucked away in behind a gate, with the Abbey fields opposite and the castle just a short walk away."

    The cottage is well cared for and beautifully decorated. The owner sent a text wishing us a good stay which was much appreciated. The cottage was much smaller than I realised from the pictures but as we were out most of the time that wasn't too much of an issue. The heating was very noisy and we struggled to get hot water in the bath but I did message owner and she said she only lived round the corner so could deal with it. It was a great stay visiting my new grandson but it was probably too small for us to look at a repeat visit.

  • "Lovely cottage for castle, abbey old and new town within easy walk."

    All you need in cottage. Parking is on road - easy to find some but loading and unloading bit more of a process - I parked by theatre next door to get in then moved car. All good. Owner leaves fabulous treats too. Can't fault it. Little courtyard garden for summer drinks is nice too.

    Hi thanks for your kind feed back . Regards Mickie/Ray Marvel (woof) Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Hock-Tide cottage and would book again."

    The cottage was really clean - I'm fussy, so thanks to whoever does the cottage cleaning/maintenance - and well presented. (Loved the artwork and stylish colour combinations!). The llittle extras like bread, eggs, milk etc were much appreciated. All in all a lovely place - we used to live in Hampton-in Arden so it was great to re-aquaint ourselves with Kenilworth and surrounding areas. Thanks to the owners for providing a great place to stay.

    Very nice welcome pack. Biscuits, milk, eggs, tea bags and dog treats. Cosy courtyard to enjoy the morning sun. Not enclosed so had to keep dog on lead. Beautiful large park opposite. Great for walks.

  • "This cottage is a secluded gem in Kenilworth."

    The owners have thought about everything to make your stay enjoyable. The little things like bread, eggs, milk, butter and dog treats were a welcome surprise. Set away from the road, it is peaceful. Parking is not an issue as there is often a space on the road of the property or a 2 minute walk to school road. Being across from a large park was great and we had some lovely walks. Don't be put off by the lack of a sofa as the chairs are super comfy as is the bed. We had a lovely time and we're sad to leave.

    We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Hock-Tide and your visit to Kenilworth! Thank you for your lovely feedback - it is greatly appreciated! Perhaps you’ll be back again some day …. Property Owner

The property

This semi-detached cottage, built around 400 years ago, rests in the heart of historic Kenilworth overlooking Abbey Fields, in the county of Warwickshire.

Enjoying a hidden position within a courtyard of cottages, Hock-tide Cottage offers a heart-warming escape for couples looking for a romantic bolthole in Warwickshire.

After finding roadside parking, access is from the road through a side door leading to paths to the front of the cottage.

The sitting room offers a real traditional feel with exposed beams, two armchairs and an electric woodburning stove, ideal for those colder months.

The kitchen features a range of appliances, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and washer/dryer, so you are fully equipped to prepare home-cooked meals.

Wash away the day in the bathroom, complete with bath and hand-held shower, before relaxing in the sumptuous double bedroom.

To the exterior of this quaint abode is a delightful patio, complete with a bench and chiminea, perfect for those balmy evenings as you chat away into the night.

When you fancy a night away from the kitchen, Kenilworth is home to a selection of pubs and restaurants, plus some fabulous attractions such as the historic Kenilworth Castle and Elizabethan Gardens, home to over 900 years of medieval history and fascinating stories.

Located amongst the ruins of the Abbey in Abbey Fields, Abbey Museum is well worth a visit with its fascinating interpretation of the monastic buildings and history, with a selection of decorative sculptured stones found many years ago.

Venture to the neighbouring town of Warwick, where you can wander the medieval streets packed with independent shops, pubs and eateries, plus you can also admire the castle, roam the serene parks or explore a fascinating museum.

Nearby rests the National Trust’s Baddesley Clinton, set in the heart of the Forest of Arden, this charming building was once the home of the Ferrers family for over 500 years, now offering a multitude of fascinating and unexpected stories.

Further afield lies the popular towns of Leamington Spa and Stratford-upon-Avon, along with the stunning Cotswolds where you can discover further charming towns and villages.

Or why not visit local attractions such as the Birmingham's iconic German Markets available from the 3rd November to the 23rd December, as well as Christmas in Cathedral Square.

Hock-tide is a splendid escape to Warwickshire, whatever time of year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
