  • "A very comfortable and enjoyable week at Finwood Cottage 1."

    Plenty of space for two people and well equipped. A great location for visiting Stratford-on-Avon, Warwick, Leamington Spa and Birmingham and all the lovely countryside in-between. Also not forgetting the lovely walks along the two nearby canals. A great swimming right next-door. The owners are very friendly and helpful, too. We'd happily stay at this cottage again.

  • "Finwood Cottage 1 was the most comfortable and pleasant holiday accommodation."

    We had absolutely everything we needed and wanted in the cottage. It was very well placed for things we wanted to do in the area and the surrounding countryside is very attractive. 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

  • "We immediately felt at home when we walked in the cottage."

    It had everything you needed, well equipped, spotlessly clean, and all easily accessible. The swimming pool was amazingly and although we didn’t have time to use it, there was a fully equipped gym. We would have loved to have stayed longer and would definitely look here first if staying in the area.

  • "A well equipped cottage with owners who are there when you need them and are very friendly."

    The cottage has the added bonus of an indoor swimming pool and some gym equipment in the building next to the cottage it if you want to use it. Very quiet area with plenty to do in the vicinity and a number of highly rated pubs (if you go by the comments in the visitors book). Well worth considering if you are looking for a quiet getaway with plenty to do nearby.

About the location

ROWINGTON

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.
