The town and internationally famous theatres sit alongside the picturesque River Avon.
With boats for hire and shady trees to enjoy summer picnics under. The town attracts tourists from all over the world - when you meet people on holiday and tell them where you live, expect to have friends for life!
The equally desirable towns of Georgian Leamington Spa and historic Warwick are on the doorstep.
The real charm of the area lies in barn conversions and pretty period cottages in nearby historic and quintessentially English villages like Shottery, Hampton Lucy, Snitterfield and Quinton.

Although the town has its fair share of quaint tourist gift shops, its not all tea caddies and fudge! The Maybird Shopping Park has all the high street big names you could want, creating a blend of the charm of the original medieval town with contemporary shopping.
There are pubs, gastropubs, swish dining venues, pre-theatre dinners, afternoon teas and hip coffee shops everywhere. Casual dining on Sheep Street, acclaimed independent restaurant Salt, The newly opened Hotel Du Vin, Marco Pierre Whites New York Italian and the Church Street Townhouse are all hot dining choices right in the heart of the town centre. Drink in The Dirty Duck close to the theatre where the actors wind down post-performance.

Throughout my personal and professional property life I have seen the problems which can arise when agents dont provide the support and communication that clients need to complete a smooth property transaction, so these things are at the heart of the service I expect to offer. To me it is a privilege and a responsibility to be able to influence and inspire people's choice of home, because our location and environment shape who we are and how we live our lives.
