Set in glorious farmland down a tree-lined private drive close to Shakespeare’s River Avon, each of these delightful adjoining properties (Cressida Ref: NMA and Troilus Ref: NMB) has been restored by professional architect design to offer a holiday retreat for all seasons. The interiors have been converted in a contemporary manner whilst retaining their original charm, including their attractive exposed beams.
Cressida (NMA) is ideal for a family holiday as it has a double and twin bedrooms. It has a beamed open plan kitchen/ living/dining area with patio doors to the terrace. The double bedroom has a 5ft bed and there is also a twin bedroom, ideal for the kids! Troilus (NMB) retains its character with a beamed open-plan living/dining area and a modern kitchen. A mix of old and new throughout, the spacious conversion has 2 double bedrooms and 1 twin. Ideal for families or a group of friends wishing for a relaxing break. Light and airy, the views from the terrace stretch across the owner’s fields and give it a real secluded feel. Perfect for a few drinks in the evening! Both properties can be booked individually or together for larger groups, and as they are only 2 miles from the M40, they can be reached easily from the north or south making them ideal for family holidays, reunions etc.
