“Wonderful location and excellent accommodation”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I have stayed at the Cow Shed twice in the last year and love the quiet location close to Kenilworth Castle but still convenient for Kenilworth and Coventry.
The Cow Shed is spacious and always clean. Zoe is a wonderful host and communicates well before the stay and is in the farmhouse next door if needed during the stay.

The Cow Shed has a modern well equipped kitchen including dishwasher and a relatively small but modern shower room .

There are also a number of lovely walks from the Cow Shed and nearby.

“Great stay at Grounds Farm”
Reviewed 15 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed in the 'Cow Shed' at Grounds Farm for 2 weeks, whilst visiting my wife's family and friends, as Kenilworth is her home town. The Cow Shed was lovely, well equipped, clean, and in a peaceful location. We walked to pubs or restaurants most nights, both in the town centre and the old High Street area, and it was no more than a 15 minute, very scenic walk. We would definitely recommend Grounds Farm and will definitely stay there again in the future.

“What a jewel of a find.”
Reviewed 7 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed over the bank holiday weekend and booked late but were rewarded with this wonderful tasteful conversion of a milking shed. It was cosy whilst having a very modern clean feel and we could have stayed a lot longer if only work had allowed. The situation was amazing set among fields with the backdrop of a castle which is well worth exploring. We had many options of things to do and the purpose of our trip was to meet up with our daughter studying at Warwick University and explore the surrounding area. We were not bored for one minute, exploring Kenilworth, Lemington Spa Warwick Castle and the old parts of Coventry. All of which were less than 10 miles away. We never got round all the things we wanted to do or see as there were plenty of walks surrounding the cottage that I would have loved to explore. There was also a large choice of what seemed to very good eating places in the local village and town center only got the chance to try two but they were good. Yes we would love to come back.

“characterful, peaceful and compact home from home”
Reviewed 7 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

i was working in the area, and this suited my needs perfectly. Warm and cosy, everything I needed for a comfortable week was there - including wifi and all mod cons including a dishwasher which I wasn't expecting! Zoe was lovely and welcoming. I can't fault it. I arrived quite late in the evening and did begin to wonder if I was lost when the sat nav abandoned me about half a mile short - but all was well. I recommend arriving in the light to appreciate the lovely views. Kenilworth is a nice town with lots of restaurants and shops.

“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed 1 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

The Cow Shed was fantastic accommodation and I would highly recommend it and I will definitely book again! It is in a lovely quiet location on farm grounds just beyond Kenilworth Castle. It's in a great spot for Kenilworth, Leamington Spa, Warwick and we also went to Birmingham shopping which was just half an hour drive. The place itself is immaculate and has been beautifully and simply fitted. All modern conveniences, comfy big bed, great shower, great kitchen and brilliant under floor heating! Perfectly clean and cozy. It was definitely value for money we loved it and will stay here again!

“Well designed and functional”
Reviewed 28 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

All good (location, quietness, internal arrangement, cleanliness, contact with owner). The remote control for the heating system was a bit hard to understand fully, but after two nights we had it well in hand.

Thank you for your review. Sorry about the inconvenience with the heating and I am glad you worked it out in the end. We were struggling to explain with our limited french language skills!

“Good choice for a relaxing mini break”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Friendly welcome from hostess Zoe. Accommodation spotlessly clean and well kitted out. Good location, castle, park, pool and pubs within easy walking distance, only a fifteen minute drive to Warwick castle.
A splendid choice for a relaxing mini break!
