Kenilworth is home to England's largest ruined castle (900 years history), the remains of an Augustinian Priory (founded 1119 and raised to an Abbey in 1448) set in 60 acres of parkland and many buildings of architectural interest. Our cottage is situated mid way between the old town of Kenilworth, with a range of historic buildings, pubs and the famous castle and the more modern shopping street offering both independent and artisan shops alongside superb restaurants, pubs and trendy wine bars. The Abbey Fields which is a 2 mins walk from the cottage forms the heart of Kenilworth and offers a gorgeous lake, two children's play areas, tennis courts, a trim trail, a cafe and heritage trails. Kenilworth has a train station (10 mins walk from cottage) offering links to Leamington Spa and Coventry, where easy connections can be made for day trips to Birmingham and London. Stratford Upon Avon, the home of Shakespeare, is a 20 mins drive from our home through beautiful countryside where there are lots of cultural and fun activities to enjoy all year round. Kenilworth has easy motorway links to all the major cities and day trips to the beautiful Cotswolds, Oxford and Bath.
