The house is perfectly situated for sightseeing some of rural England's greatest gems. Shakespeare's Stratford Upon Avon, the splendid seat of the Spencer Chuchill family at Blenheim Palace, the ancient city with the fairytale castle at Warwick, the pretty picture postcard Cotswold villages and towns like Chipping Camden, Stow On The Wold, Moreton In Marsh, Lower Slaughter and Bourton On The Water are all within close range.
