Country Weekend Breaks
Enjoy a quintessential English getaway
Weekend breaks in the country provide an ideal escape from the demands of day-to-day urban living. Brimming with arts and culture, history and heritage, few parts of the UK are more idyllic than Shakespeare’s England in the corner of leafy Warwickshire.
Tranquil rivers and canals meander past historic market towns, honeypot villages and pretty hamlets. Add to this the wealth of stately homes, mighty castles and beautiful gardens, and it’s clear why this part of the country is such a popular destination for weekend breaks.
The region also boasts an impressive selection of things to do in the great outdoors, including country parks, nature reserves, waymarked trails, boat trips and cycle paths along disused railways.
And if that’s not enough, visitors are spoilt for choice with numerous delightful rural towns and villages such as Alcester, Dunchurch, Henley-in-Arden and Southam. Many of these host annual food festivals and markets that give visitors on weekend or short breaks an authentic taste of the country.
In addition to all of these activities and places to visit, Shakespeare’s England has accommodation covered too with an array of places to stay – from cosy family-run B&Bs to luxury country house hotels. Weekend and short breaks really don’t come much finer than this!
