    “The property is situated on the busy high street @ Polesworth with your daily needs very close to hand.”

    The cottage has lots of character & we found it spotlessly clean with lots of little extras. Parking a bonus & a lovely small garden.

Polesworth Abbey

Situated in the centre of the large village of Polesworth in North Warwickshire, and close to the borders of Staffordshire, Leicestershire and Derbyshire, these two Polesworth cottages are located in the medieval gatehouse at the entrance to Polesworth Abbey which dates back to the 9th century. These delightful Polesworth cottages have been lovingly restored to their original use and are uniquely furnished and decorated, retaining character and charm. Both of these Polesworth Abbey holiday homes boast many pieces of antique furniture that is in keeping with the age of the cottages. Positioned on the edge of the abbey grounds, itself a Scheduled Ancient Monument, and close to the River Anker, guests are invited to visit the original porter's office and his family's meagre living quarters to learn about its connection with William Shakespeare who, it is believed, was educated here. It provides a fascinating insight into what life was like at the abbey over the years. Guests are also invited to enjoy walks around the abbey grounds. The village of Polesworth boasts many amenities including pubs, a village shop and a Post Office, as well as offering a Heritage Centre, Poetry Trail and lovely walks and cycle paths. The area surrounding these two cottages in Polesworth offers many activities including, horseback riding and fishing, good golf courses including The Belfry, water parks and theme parks. Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick with its magnificent castle are both within easy reach. A fantastic location for a memorable holiday at these two cottages in Polesworth.
