Features & Facilities
Inside, each of the 3 shepherd's huts has: A double bed with soft bedding and freshly laundered bed linen. An en-suite bathroom with hot running water, shower, lavatory, towels and a small selection of toiletries. A kitchen space, including an electric hob, fridge freezer, microwave, sink, toaster, kettle and all essential food preparation equipment. A seating space with a wood burner (except in the Lavender Lodge), a table and chars. The Lavender Lodge also has a television. Outside each hut there is a firepit and a seating area with a table and chairs. Fishing is permitted in the river but you'll need to bring your own tackle.
Each pod comes with a welcome pack detailing local shops, restaurants and activities. You can also have a good walk around the farm and venture into neighbouring Hampton wood. Warwick is 4 miles away and boasts one of the finest preserved castles in the country. Built in 1068 by William the Conqueror, Warwick Castle (01926 495421) hosts daily trebuchet firings, jousting tournaments and a range of lively attractions that bring the castle's rich history to life. Also in Warwick are Hill Close Gardens (01926 493339), a collection of restored Victorian Gardens and Grade II summerhouses. In the opposite direction, the National Trust-owned Charlecote Park (01789 470277) is only 2 mile away, surrounded by its own deer park, on the banks of the River Avon. Check out the underground World War II museum at nearby Wellesbourne Mountford Airfield (01789 842007) or, also in Wellesbourne, pop into 19th-century Chedhams Yard (01789 842770), an award winning preserved blacksmiths and wheelwright’s workshop crammed with tools, equipment and items made on site. Last, but my no means least, Shakespeare's birthplace of Stratford-Upon-Avon is 7 miles (a 15-minute drive) away and packed with not only Shakespeare related activities and buildings but also boating on the river and a host of god restaurants and independent shops.
Food & Drink
The nearest pub is a couple of miles downstream in Hampton Lucy. The Boar's Head (01789 840533) is nice but its worth the 5-minute-longer journey into Stratford-Upon-Avon for the full plethora of options. The Swan’s Nest Hotel, overlooking the river Avon, has a good French bistro (01789 264 804), while Lambs (01789 292 554), in one of the oldest buildings in town, is generally the locals' favourite. The Dirty Duck (01789 297 312) is our pick of the Stratford pubs.
Leave the M40 at Junction 15 and, on the main junction roundabout, take the turning for Cirencester (A429). Go just ¼ of a mile down the A429 then take the first right hand turning you come across, which instantly forks, take the left on this fort, following signs to Sherbourne. Follow this narrow road (Fulbrook Lane) for 2 miles, then take the left hand turn (it's 50 metres or so after a stretch of woodland on your left and the turning has a T-junction sign). Follow this lane for ½-mile and Avon Riverside Glamping is signposted on your right.
It's 7 miles to Stratford-Upon-Avon Railway Station and 5 miles (though the same journey time by car) to Warwick Railway Station.
