    “Lovely cottage, modest, nothing fancy but cosy, clean and comfortable.”

    Everything we needed, beautiful location, made to feel very welcome by the owner, Russell. So peaceful, home from home and near to some wonderful places to visit. 10/10!

The property

Ilmington 2.1 miles.

Find this lovely cottage nestled amidst the beautiful Cotswolds AONB, found on the grounds of the owner's grand home, perfect for a group of four to enjoy a peaceful break to Warwickshire.

Granary Cottage is a welcoming dwelling where you can settle in for a relaxing evening after a day of exploring, sit back in the living area, home to a snug sitting space for film nights and a family dining table to enjoy all your delicious home-cooking.

Rustle up your best work in the kitchen, throwing together a quick meal before heading out on a thrilling adventure with your loved ones, there's even a dishwasher to pop your dishes in to save extra cleaning up, as well as this floor also holding a convenient cloakroom.

When you're ready for bed, retire upstairs and choose from one of two lovely bedrooms, a double and a twin, both resting below intimate sloped ceilings, storage space and a sleek shared en-suite shower room where you can delight in a brisk morning wake up.

Make use of the outdoor seating area for a spot of alfresco dining on a warm day, or to enjoy a hot coffee on a crisp autumn morning.

Travel over to the quaint village of Ilmington to stock up on your self-catered essentials at the local shop, or tuck into a meal away from the kitchen at one of the country pubs.

Chipping Campden and Moreton-in-Marsh are also in reach, offering a gorgeous place to visit with an even wider selection of retail, pubs, bars, restaurants and more!

Discover Shakespeare's birthplace at Stratford-upon-Avon, a beautiful market town beaming with culture where you must catch a production at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre Company, take a cruise out on the River Avon, find historic museums, or take the kids out to Stratford Butterfly Farm.

Warwick is a fantastic town with links to medieval culture where you can explore the dramatic castle, or visit the historic spa museums at Royal Leamington Spa before rejuvenating in a nearby spa of your own!

Walkers, ramblers and nature lovers will love the close proximity to the Cotswolds AONB, hosting a hub of leisurely walking routes, challenging cycle paths and opportunities to meet local nature.

Granary Cottage is a stunning base for a chance to explore the Cotswolds AONB.
