The Stables  in Warwickshire, a cottage in Middle England: The Stables  exterior

Converted Stables next to the Oxford Canal

The grade 2 listed property adjoins the former Lock Keepers Cottage on the scenic Oxford canal. Close to Lock 9 on the canal yet affording total privacy and seclusion. An ideal base for exploring Warwickshire; Stratford upon Avon, Coventry Cathedral, Warwick, Leamington and numerous National Trust properties. There are plenty of walking options combining canals and rolling countryside. Cyclists are well catered for with miles of quiet country lanes and a few challenging hills.
Converted to a high standard in 2012, the 200 year old property features original wooden exposed beams and stable door. Modern insulation keeps the place snug and draught free. The stone floors throughout are heated by underfloor heating which is fed from a eco-friendly ground source heating system. A log burner is available for really cosy nights. The ground source heating ensures constant hot water for the walk-in shower.
There is a private "sun trap" patio area for guests, which overlooks gentle sloping pasture land. Garden furniture is provided for alfresco dining outside or simply chilling with a glass of wine and good book.
There is one double bedroom with built in wardrobes. One additional guest may stay in the lounge on a "Z" bed (linen supplied).
A full sized cooker, fridge, microwave, full range of crockery and cooking utensils ensure that you can be fully self contained. A 2 place dishwasher means that you needn't spend time "doing the dishes".
The nearby local shop supplies local buffalo burgers, organic local lamb and bacon, newspapers, basic supplies and canal souvenirs. The village post office sells alcohol, a wide range of food and post office facilities.
If you don't want to cook, the nearby (100 metres) Folly Pub is an absolute gem of a country pub and well worth a visit. It offers a range of real ales and hearty pub food amidst a riot of eclectic antiques and pictures. The spacious grass lawn is ideal for Summer eating. In Winter, the logs fires and candles are lit. Don't take my word for it though, look it up on Trip Advisor.

Couples of all ages have enjoyed stays here, from 2 nights to a week.
