About the property

Whitley Elm Cottages

Perfect for family breaks, business trips, house moves or house renovation and romantic escapes our four holiday cottages have been converted from a 250 year old barn, and are situated in the grounds of heritage property Whitley Elm, a Tudor Manor House which dates back to 1453. Please enquire with Owner if a shorter break is preferred.

Each cottage provides well equipped, luxury accommodation with exposed beams and stunning views across this beautiful corner of rural Warwickshire. The cottages are located off a quiet and safe country lane, ideally located for walking, cycling and horse riding.

There are a fine selection of pubs and restaurants just a short drive away, as well as family attractions and National Trust Properties. The cottages are near to the towns of Warwick, Royal Leamington Spa, Kenilworth and Stratford Upon Avon.

About Katherine Russell

We enjoy welcoming visitors to stay in our lovely cottages. My husband and I run the cottages which my father converted from the 18th century barns in the grounds of, what was, our family home. Whitley Elm Cottages have been established for over 25 years. Many of our guests come year after year and some have become good friends. I was brought up at Whitley Elm so we are able to help visitors with where to go to get the best out of this lovely area.

Katherine Russell purchased this cottage in 1976

Why Katherine Russell chose Rowington

Whitley Elm Cottages are a very special place for my husband and I, and for the many guests who stay here. The Cottages are situated in a beautiful part of the world. The rural tranquility, heritage and location of this area, in the heart of Shakespeare's country, have drawn people here from all over the world making it one of England's most popular tourist locations. Where we are is quiet and undisturbed by traffic noise but within a short car-ride there are many attractions for visitors, including Warwick Castle, Stratford Upon Avon and Hatton Country World, as well as fascinating National Trust Properties like Packwood House and Baddesley Clinton.

What makes this cottage unique

There are very few properties to rent that have such a good position, views and heritage as Whitley Elm Cottages do. We are located in the heart of the Warwickshire countryside, but just a short car journey from the towns of Warwick, Royal Leamington Spa, and Stratford Upon Avon. The National Exhibition Centre is a 20 minute drive away from the cottages. All properties have free wi-fi, so you do not need to feel cut-off if you have to be connected to the rest of the world for business or pleasure.
