About the property

4 bed cottage idealy located for Stratford upon Avon & Cotswolds Pet friendly

A converted farm building which can sleep 7 people in 4 bedrooms. Exposed wooden beams throughout gives this cottage a real cosy country feel. There are 4 bedrooms, 1 on the ground floor with a shower room and wc on teh same level. Upstairs to the master bedroom with en-suite shower and wc, a twin bed room and a single room along with the family bathroom.

As you might expect, the heart of ‘Shakespeare Country’ is packed with places and experiences related to ‘The Bard’ and attracts visitors from around the globe. Mary Arden’s Farm, Anne Hathaway’s Cottage and Shakespeare’s Birthplace head an extensive list of things to see, whilst you can also enjoy a leisurely boat trip along the river Avon, passing by the world famous Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

Country estates including Ragley Hall, Coughton Court and Compton Verney are also popular tourist destinations, as are the historic towns of Henley in Arden, Alcester and Shipston on Stour. South Warwickshire is full of lovely, characterful villages, unspoilt countryside and offers the perfect gateway for exploring the nearby Cotswolds.

Exhall is ideally located for exploring Shakespeare's county and the historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon and also the nearby Cotswolds with famous towns and villages such as Chipping Campden, Broadway, Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold etc.

Every visit to Stratford would not be complete without finding out more about the English poet and playwright that makes it famous. Shakespeare's Birthplace allows you to visit the house where the world’s most famous playwright was born and grew up to discover more about his early years.

Other must see Shakespeare locations include Hall's Croft (home to William's daughter), Nash's House and New Place (the last chapter in his life), Anne Hathaway's cottage (a romantic setting) and Mary Arden's Farm (the childhood home of Shakespeare's mother)

Exhall is known as one of the "Shakespeare villages". ... The nickname "Dodging Exhall" may have arisen from the fact that the village was not, at any rate in the 18th century, directly approachable either from Alcester or Stratford. Exhall is first mentioned in the grant by Ceolred of Mercia to Evesham Abbey in AD 710.
