Countryside Escapes

Hanbury Hall & Gardens
Your chance to get up close with Mother Nature

Countryside escapes don’t get much better than a few days in Shakespeare’s England, a delightful rural corner of South Warwickshire. Meandering rivers and canals connect picturesque market towns, villages and hamlets to make up a patchwork quilt that represents quintessential England.

This part of Warwickshire is a perfect destination for escapes to the countryside, whether with a partner, friends or family. Here you can unwind for a few days from the daily grind and enjoy fabulous hospitality, historic houses, exquisite gardens and numerous annual festivals – all set against the backdrop of rolling countryside.

Head for the hills with a ramble through ancient woodlands or along waymarked nature trails and footpaths. Visit one of the many Warwickshire country parks and nature reserves, stroll alongside the tranquil River Avon, chill out with a spot of fishing or cycle one of the two Greenways on disused railway tracks.

Local farmers’ markets allow you to sample a taste of the countryside, while a visit to the famous Hatton Locks is not to be missed. Countryside escapes in wonderful Warwickshire can be as energetic or relaxing as you want; all you have to do is decide when to come!
