Warwickshire boasts some of the most attractive and diverse towns in the country. From our office in Stratford-upon-Avon we sell properties across Stratford, Leamington Spa, Warwick, Kenilworth and Rugby. In Stratford-upon-Avon town, there are many quality restaurants, public houses and gastro pubs with excellent reputations all within walking distance. The area is well served by schools including The Croft Prep School, King Edward Grammar School for Boys, Shottery Grammar School for Girls and Stratford High School. Stratford upon Avon has many leisure opportunities with boating, fishing and rowing together with its links to the canal network.
The town also has a golf course and racecourse and there are other racecourses further afield at Warwick and Cheltenham. For the commuter, the M40 is easily accessible and there are regular trains from Warwick Parkway and Stratford-upon-Avon to both Birmingham and London – each can be reached in an hour, and 90 minutes respectively.
Other urbanised areas we cater to, include Leamington Spa and its beautiful Regency style buildings, and Warwick, the county town of Warwickshire, a historic market town situated on a bend of the River Avon. Both provide convenient shopping options, trendy restaurants and wine bars, as well as other recreational pursuits.
Like Stratford-upon-Avon, both are well served by a variety of decent state, private and grammar options including Warwick Foundation Schools.
The demand for houses in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick and Leamington continues to be strong. During the pandemic, we have seen buyers from all over the country moving to the area to be closer to families and the great communication links we have in Warwickshire are a real draw for those who are looking to commute to larger cities. Houses within close proximity to schools and train stations with good sized gardens for families are hugely popular.
Stratford-upon-Avon is known as the West Midland's cultural centre. After all, it's home to the Royal Shakespeare Company. In the town there is a wide range of shopping and recreational facilities, and schooling options that are highly regarded across the county.
Shakespeare is at the centre of the town's cultural offering.
Internationally known as the birthplace of perhaps the most famous writer and playwright of all time, William Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon is a medieval market town with a rich history and a diverse cultural offering. Naturally, a proportion of this offering is dedicated to the life and work of Shakespeare, while the renowned Royal Shakespeare Theatre is at the town’s heart. It’s also home to the Royal Shakespeare Company, which offers a schedule of productions featuring some of the UK’s finest actors.
Stratford is the perfect town for shopping and dining, with the opportunity to maybe catch sight of a famous face or two.
When it comes to shopping, Stratford-upon-Avon offers a great selection of independent boutiques and high street names, with plenty of hidden gems tucked away down many of its historic side streets, intertwined with stunning Elizabethan architecture.
For dining out, gastropubs are aplenty, as are popular high-end restaurants such as Loxleys and Sorrento. And for the budding thespians in the family, Head to The Dirty Duck by the river – a regular haunt for RSC actors throughout the week.
