                          Alne Hills

                          Is an idyllic rural hamlet between Alcester 4 miles and Stratford upon Avon 7 Alne Wood Barn sits high on top of Alne Hills and its gate opens directly on to the heart of England way 100 miles of footpath with the Arden way a further 26 miles of footpath crossing just a few hundred yards away. It is flanked on the west by Alne wood With it's beautiful canopy of ancient oaks and blessed with it's vibrant carpet of bluebells at springtime, so if you are looking for a very quiet rural retreat just minutes away from a major tourist town such as Stratford upon Avon you need look no further.

                          Alcester is the quintessential English market town, an architectural gem with a lively community feel set in the attractive, rolling 'Shakespeare's Countryside', just seven miles west of Stratford-on-Avon, home of the Bard.

                          Situated on the River Arrow, its medieval street pattern survives almost intact, along with many ancient properties including the wonderful church of St Nichola.

                          Golf: There are around 12 golf course's within a 10 mile radius of Mutton Barn
