  • "We could not have asked for any more."

    We were last minute bookers after our trip to London had to be canceled and I can honestly say we had a better time here than we might have had there. Thank you

    Thanks for the great feedback. Glad you had a great time.Hope to see you again. Property Owner

  • "Small but very well appointed cottage for 2."

    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.

    We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Hock-Tide! Thank you for your feedback - its much appreciated! Maybe we'll see you again soon .... Property Owner

  • "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.

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

Elsewhere in the town are the Norman and Gothic ruins of the Abbey and the dramatic Abbey Fields, set in the stunning valley of the Finham Brook with views of Kenilworth Castle.
