Booking & Availability
Grounds Farm is just a short walk from the pubs and restaurants in Kenilworth, yet still enjoys a wonderfully peaceful location. The farm borders Kenilworth Castle so you’re never far from a magnificent view of these famous ruins.
Grounds Farm and the neighbouring Pleasance Farm have been in the family since 1963 and together cover 460 acres of the beautiful Warwickshire countryside.The farm grows arable crops including barley, wheat and rapeseed and also has traditional Hereford cattle which graze the grassland around the castle.
The farm is steeped in history having been part of the Kenilworth Castle estate until the early 20th Century and contains some important historical features. The farmhouse at Grounds Farm was once used as the estate office. Pleasance Farm is so-named because on its land are the remains of ‘The Pleasance’ – the castle’s own medieval pleasure garden, founded by the future Henry V. Furthermore, artefacts from the English Civil War are frequently found on the farm.
Wildlife is very important to the family and so numerous wildlife habitats have been created including plots of seed mix for wild birds, as well as fields rich in flowers for butterflies and bumble bees.
If you’d like to discover the wildlife for yourself or just fancy a walk, the farm has numerous footpaths which you can access directly from your location at Grounds Farm.

"A brilliant place to stay"
‘I spent six very enjoyable months staying at Grounds Farm. The en suite room was superb, with very nice, cosy and clean furnishings, making you feel instantly at home. The room is also very private, even coming equipped with its own patio outside- perfect for summer al fresco dining! The unique location was yet another bonus, with wonderful views of Kenilworth Castle and the surrounding countryside, making it very relaxing accommodation. All in all, I was very sad to have to leave Grounds Farm, which is a brilliant place to stay.’
