Country Cottage and Caravan Site

The Warren

the warren
The Warren holiday cottage is attached to Amanda and Roy’s family home nestled on a quiet hillside with fantastic views all around. It is a mixed working farm, situated alongside the Fosseway and a short distance from the M40.

Stratford upon Avon and Warwick both in easy reach.

We like our visitors to feel its home from home and relax and de-stress.

We have chickens and geese roaming around our farm that are happy to be fed by you each morning.

We start lambing our few Kerry Hill Sheep on the 14th March the rest of the flock following.

There are plenty of grazing deer visible around, and an abundance of songbirds which can be watched on their feeders from the French windows of the lounge at Hill Farm.

We are situated just on the outskirts of Moreton Paddox hamlet, neighbouring the village of Moreton Morrell.

Moreton Paddox was a private estate which no longer exists but the farm is still part of the old estate.

We encourage guests to use the public foot paths and see the area. The Green Way at Stratford upon Avon is a 5 mile old decommissioned railway track,where you can cycle and walk along what is now a country path and there is plenty of canal and riverside walking at nearby Hatton, Stratford on Avon and Warwick.

Our other local attraction Compton Verney, a short drive away, holds a huge art collection and a lovely restaurant.

Stratford upon Avon and Warwick are only a short distance away from us.

Stratford upon Avon with Shakespere’s Birthplace, Mary Arden’s and Anne Hatherway’s cottages, as well as the Royal Shakespeare Company with it’s newly refurbished main theatre. There are an abundance of very good restaurants.

The Ferry at Alveston, near Stratford upon Avon is one of our favourite places to eat.

Home cooked food can be provided on your arrival by prior arrangement. I also have a selection of tea, coffee, milk, home baked cake and our own eggs waiting for you in your “welcome package”. There is a small selection of wines already in the wine rack within The Warren as we find that after a long journey a drink is very welcome! Please help yourself and replace with a bottle of your own choice.

Towels and all bed linen are provided and by prior arrangement a cot with bed linen is available too.

All cleaning products, liquid hand soaps, kitchen rolls and toilet rolls etc are provided so no extras for you to pack.

There will always be a few laundry items and fire lighters to get you started.

The aim is to take the worry out of “Have I packed that!” Please ask if I’ve forgotten something!
