Today’s smart money, property wise at least, is increasingly being concentrated on that corner of England we know as Shakespeare country, the ancient county of Warwickshire.
Perhaps not as immediately showy or as picture-postcard as its more fashionable neighbours, the Cotswold counties of Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire, it is nevertheless quietly impressive, with its heart centred around the lovely town of Stratford upon Avon.
For those thinking of moving to this part of the country, you will find a region rich in heritage with a wide diversity of housing stock.
Whether choosing an established rural community or a popular location such as Stratford and Shipston-on-Stour in the south, there is always a sense that you can access everything you need without the hassles associated with city life.
Warwickshire’s central location means that you have quick and easy rail and road access to London and Birmingham as well as further afield to Manchester and Leeds. With property prices here up to 20% less than in the Cotswolds, your money goes that little bit further. The county is also well served by very good schools, both state and independent.
Surrounded by areas of outstanding natural beauty, Stratford Upon Avon can be the ideal place to choose your next home. With the Cotswolds on your doorstep, real village life combined with well-established local facilities is a truly accessible dream.
