By Wyndham Vacation Rentals


Alcester is a charming ancient town of great character in rural south west Warwickshire. Its picturesque town centre is a mix of 17th century black and white houses and fine Georgian architecture. There are good selection of restaurants, real ale pubs and cafes and in the summer its floral displays are good enough to win prizes.

With Stratford-upon-Avon close by and the beautiful Cotswolds on the doorstep there is plenty for visitors to do in this lovely part of the UK. Discover the gentle rural countryside, pretty villages and culture of the region. And there are plenty of walking and cycling trails to enjoy.

Take a trip to Coughton Court, an historic stately home boasting an impressive two churches and magnificent gardens in its grounds, before heading over to Alcester Country Market for some quality home-produced goods. You can then reminisce on your day in one of the town’s many tea rooms.

Ragley Hall makes a good family day out, with the fine architecture and art at the stately home and gardens, to the exciting woodland adventure playground which has a 3D maze and extensive woodland walks for the whole family to relax and unwind.

For those artisans and antiquarians there is no shortage of art and crafts shops and antiques dealers, so be sure to bring home a memento of your holiday.

Alcester holiday cottages provide the perfect base with which to explore this fascinating and beautiful town and region.

  • Glebe Farm Barns - Duck Pond Cottage

    Nr. Alcester, Stratford-upon-Avon

    Ref: W43700

    These holiday cottages (refs W43699 and W43700) are situated in the middle of the pretty village of Exhall. Parts of the farmhouse date back to Tudor times and for centuries it’s been the home of the local clergyman who both cultivated the land and preached in the tiny church next door. William Shakespeare is alleged to have referred in a poem to ’Dodging Exhall’ and the tag has remained ever since. If you wish to dodge the hustle and bustle of the 21st century, you could do no better than stay in this delightful place, for although peace and quiet is in plenty, a 10 minute drive will take you to Stratford-upon-Avon, 40 minutes to the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, or Broadway in the beautiful Cotswolds Hills. All this, plus plenty of local country pubs serving good food and the many historic houses and castles that abound in the area, make this an ideal holiday location for exploring the Heart of England. Shops and restaurant 2 miles, pub ½ mile.
