Living only a mile away from this property we have watched the scaffolding erected and builders come and go and read about the lottery funded restoration of Polesworth Abbey gatehouse, so with friends from Lincolnshire coming to visit for the week it was a perfect excuse to book the property as a base to introduce them to the area - and oh boy, are we glad we did.
This is one of the most amazing properties it has been our privilege to stay in. Full of character and charm you could feel the history in every beam, wall and rafter whilst enjoying the modern day comfort of under floor heating, free Wi-Fi and dishwasher.
The welcome from Fr. Philip and his flock made us proud to say we were locals and we were amazed at the discoveries we made about our own locality and heritage.
Situated on the Warwickshire/Staffordshire/Leicestershire boarder the property is an ideal base for days out to Bosworth Battle Field, the National Memorial Arboretum Drayton Manor Theme Park, Twycross Zoo and many more attractions as well as been about 45 minutes from Birmingham or Nottingham in you require a serious shopping day, Theatres etc.
It should be noted that there are steep stairs to the top floor where the twin room is situated which would be unsuitable for young children or the less mobile.
We are so pleased that we decided to 'holiday at home' - it was just fantastic and a place we would certainly recommend and can't wait to return to.
