The walks alongside the canal was good and very relaxing, had a laugh at the people trying to row the boats, one in particular was really funny. Lovely views and the park was nice and tidy.

Excellent countryside and views afar over the mountains, plenty of flora and fauna too look at whilst taking in that beautiful country air. Great roads and no traffic excellent driving conditions for sight seeing.

Stayed in Premier Inn on canal and walked the 7 Miles form there to Wooten Wawen with train on return.

Great pub with good food and service.... More

A taste of the country within the town! We are lucky to live within a 5 minute walk of the canal and regularly walk to Wilmcote and the town centre. The only downside is that a motocross circuit has been set up at Cophams Hill farm and during the spring and summer months this is ruining the ambience and peace... More
