The pretty cottage, which is all on one level, enjoys a beautiful setting within the grounds of its owner’s country home and has the Heart of England way footpath – taking in miles and miles of Warwickshire’s most scenic countryside – running right from its front door! The popular tourist towns of Warwick and Stratford upon Avon are only a 15 minute drive from the cottage, whilst wonderful Henley in Arden is less than a mile away.
Arden Way’s double bedroom has plentiful wardrobe space and overlooks its enclosed patio garden. The property’s owner can provide a further temporary bed if required, giving the cottage a capacity of 3 (2+1) making it ideal for a small family or group of friends.

Arden Way and its sister property Meadow View, lie in the midst of excellent walking country and are a short drive or walk away from a good selection of country pubs. In addition to walking, this is also great cycling country, with bikes available to hire from nearby Stratford upon Avon and hire bike delivery also available.
Historic Henley in Arden with its stunning High Street is less than a mile away and offers a fabulous selection of cafes, inns, restaurants (including Italian, Indian, Chinese and the Michelin starred ‘Cheals’) and a number of interesting independent shops. Henley also has excellent public transport facilities, offering regular buses to Stratford upon Avon and Birmingham and a British Rail station linking many nearby villages including pretty Wilmcote, home of Mary Arden’s Farm.
Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick, Birmingham and The Cotswolds are also easily accessible, making this an excellent central base for a leisure or business break in stunning Warwickshire surroundings.
Arden Way Cottage guests have given the property 5-Star Reviews on TripAdvisor
“This cottage was a really comfortable base for us and very nicely decorated. It has everything you might need for self catering and is very private. The location was great for us while we visited our family a couple of villages away. Henley and Stratford within 15 minutes were awesome. Minnie (owner) was extremely kind and hospitable making our stay most enjoyable! Arden Way Cottage is a hidden gem that we would definitely book again the next time we visit from Canada!

“The Best of Both Worlds – Arden Way Cottage is in a lovely spot with great sweeping views and lovely walking right from its front door, but is also very close to great places to visit like Stratford-Upon-Avon, Henley in Arden and Warwick. Comfortable and cosy accommodation with everything you could need in a truly beautiful setting. Also very close to some beautiful National trust properties Baddesley Clinton and Packwood House and many great village pubs and restaurants. Our second visit to this area, dogs are made especially welcome by the cottage’s owners and they had a great stay too! A great place to stay in every way.

“‘GREAT TRANQUIL RURAL LOCATION’ – Arden Way really does have the best of both worlds as it’s in a beautiful rural location with lovely countryside and walking all around, yet it’s so easy to get to all the many local tourist attractions like Stratford upon Avon, Warwick and not forgetting the great local town of Henley in Arden. Being able to bring the four legged member of our family along too was a real bonus and we took full advantage of the many great walks running from the Heart of England/Arden Way footpath which runs right outside the cottage. You can also walk across the fields to the town of Henley in Arden where there’s a great selection of cafes, shops and some brilliant places to eat. The cottage is homely and the perfect comfortable base for a trip to this lovely bit of the UK (or ‘Shakespeare Country’ as it’s known locally) There is so much to do in this area of Warwickshire that we barely scratched the surface during our long weekend, so we have a very good excuse for a return visit!

“Much prefer staying in a lovely place like this when visiting the NEC than in some bland, soulless hotel. Popping into Henley is easy and there are some great places to eat and drink”-ANTHONY, BEDFORDSHIRE
