Why Alan and Liz Griffith chose Wilmcote
We moved into this property due to its quiet location and its close proximity to Stratford upon Avon and easy access to good transport links. In addition, the property is located adjacent to the Stratford Canal and surrounded by fields on 3 sides making this a relaxing environment. The property is situated in 4.8 acres. and is surrounded by many mature trees.

Great weeks holiday
Amazing time in beautiful setting, plenty of great walks, we all loved our holiday .
Beautiful cottage in stunning location
A very friendly welcome from Alan, Liz and Bertie. The cottage is delightful with everything you could need. The grounds are out of this world and we all loved exploring. A truly relaxing week in a real home from home. We look forward to returning again next year.
Fist class holiday let. Very welcoming owners who have superb grounds overlooking the Stratford canal. Enjoyed watching the wild life and taking walks direct from the cottage.
Excellent accommodation and location in tended grounds alongside the canal.Easy access to Stratford,Warwick,Solihull and Redditch. Hosts Liz and Alan are friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Great with our disabled daughter.Bertie is friendly,attenative and entertaining:one of the highlights of our stay.Highly recommended for couples and small families.
Great cottage in a wonderful location. There was everything you could possibly want and more, clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Ideal location for watching the canal narrow boats and for walking to Stratford-on-Avon. Very handily there is also a station in Wilmcote, with very cheap fares for the journey back! Mary Arden's Farm, just up the road is also worth a visit. Would happily recommend the cottage.
Thank you both for writing the review, gratefully appreciated.
So glad you had a good holiday and Liz and I would welcome the opportunity of seeing you again in the future.

Delightful cottage quietly situated. But still in striking distance of Interesting places
Wharf Stables is situated in Wilmcote, 3.5 miles from the heart of Stratford upon Avon. Here visitors can enjoy the attractions associated with William Shakespeare. i.e. Anne Hathaway's Cottage, Mary Arden's House, Shakespeare's Birthplace and Stratford Theatres.
Stratford sits on the river Avon where visitors can take sight-seeing tours or hire individual boats. If canal travel is of interest, boats can be hired locally, with reasonable notice, for parties up to 12. Wilmcote is also very well placed to explore the beautiful Cotswolds, recognised as one of the most picturesque areas in the U.K. In addition,there are many stunning National Trust properties in the Warwickshire/Gloucestershire area.
Warwick Castle, one of the best preserved Medieval castles in the U.K., is only 7 miles by car, as are the remains of Kenilworth Castle.
The Heritage Car Centre can be found just south of Warwick and the Coventry Car Museum is located in Coventry City Centre not far from Coventry Cathedral.
From Wilmcote, access can also be obtained to Birmingham City, where there are many museums and attractions. This would take approx. 40 minutes by train. The National Exhibition Centre is 24 miles to the North which hosts many shows and concerts throughout the year.
