SELF CATERING Holiday Cottages Pear Tree Holiday Cottages

Pear Tree Holiday Cottages

1 & 2 Bedroom Holiday Cottages  |  Sleeping 2-4  
Pear Tree Holiday Cottages are near the village green and look across a paddock towards Mary Arden's House, the home of Shakespeare's mother's family. The The Apple Loft and Acanthus Cottage are completely non-smoking and unsuitable for pets but we do welcome children over 3 years old. The cottages share a beautiful three-quarters of an acre garden.

Pear Tree Cottage itself once belonged to William Shakespeare's parents, Mary (nee Arden) and John Shakespeare, who inherited it from Robert Arden - Mary's father. They mortgaged the property in 1578 and forfeited it, by order of the Chancery Court in 1597 for failure to repay the loan.

Wilmcote is in the heart of Shakespeare Country just 3 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon and 8 miles from Warwick.

Visits to Stratford can be made by tour bus from Mary Arden's House, by train from the village Railway Station, or by your own Car in 10 mins.

The Warwickshire countryside and the nearby Cotswold hills contain a wealth of fine Gardens, Stately Homes, ancient Manor Houses and Castles to delight the visitor, as well as the internationally renowned Stratford attractions of Shakespeare properties and the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

Having lived here all our lives we can offer the best advice on days out from Pear Tree Cottage, aided by our own map and also help you to find our favourite eating places and country Pubs.

Some ideas for excursions within easy reach are the historic County Town of Warwick, with its superb Castle, Church and museums; also Kenilworth Castle, Blenheim Palace, the Cotswold Villages and any of a dozen National Trust Properties, including the spectacular gardens at Hidcote, Packwood and Upton House all within half an hour or less. Antique shops and markets to suit most pockets can be found nearby.

We are only 30 minutes drive from the NATIONAL EXHIBITION CENTRE.
