Holiday cottages in Warwickshire
As a cottage holiday destination Warwickshire is perhaps best known for Stratford-upon-Avon the birthplace of William Shakespeare, but it has some very picturesque countryside to its north, impressive castles at Kenilworth and Warwick, the city of Coventry, Rugby home to the game and to the famous Rugby School and a choice of cathedrals, stately homes and scenic waterways.
If your target is Stratford-upon-Avon and Shakespeare country be aware that Stratford itself is probably second only to London as a tourist attraction, you might be better taking a holiday cottage in one of the many charming villages around Stratford than in the town itself.
