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.

Everything was a described. Location and setting was much better than we expected. Beautiful and peaceful. We enjoyed it very much. We will come again.
This was our second stay at Wharf Stables and everything was just as lovely as we remembered it.
The cottage is extremely comfortable and beautifully decorated. We slept soundly in the peaceful surroundings and loved waking each morning to watch the narrowboats gliding by on the canal and the rabbits, squirrels and ducks foraging just outside the windows.
We did all of our shopping in Stratford and found no problem with the short drive there.
We visited many of the lovely villages in the area and were always pleased to get back to our little haven at Wilmcote.
It was a perfectly relaxing and enjoyable fortnight.
Just a brief note to thank you for posting such a lovely review, much appreciated.
Sorry we did not see you this year , that may have made your stay more pleasant!
We hope we can welcome you back in the future.

spacious property and well appointed
Perfect for visiting local attractions including a pleasant walk along the canal towpath to Stratford. The property was only converted in 2016 and the only adverse comment is that most of the leaflets for attractions were from that year including train timetables. they should be updated each year. We left some 2019 leaflets
Fabulous position, beautiful property
Fantastic quality property
Many thanks for leaving your comment on the web site.
We are very pleased you enjoyed Wharf Stables and would love to see you again if you are back in the country.
Bertie loved the toy, may thanks. The bird noise has just broken, lasted longer than most toys.

We had a lovely stay in Wharf Stables. The location is excellent for seeing the sights in Warwickshire, The Cotswolds and Worcestershire and the setting of the cottage itself with access to the canal and surrounding countryside is absolutely lovely. Stratford upon Avon is easily accessable and there are many National Trust sites to visit in the area. The accomodation is furnished to a very high standard and very comfortable. Slightly more comfortable outdoor seating would be good to enjoy the scenery or have a snooze on a relaxing afternoon and the owners dog is very friendly and fun but may concern people who aren't dog lovers and does limit you keeping the doors closed in case he should intrude! We enjoyed our stay immensely and would most definitely return.
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.
