For our son, a professional jazz musician, Christmas 2014 was a busy period, with gigs up and down the country. As a result, he could not make it home to the Isle of Wight from his house in Leeds. We therefore decided to celebrate a 'delayed Christmas' in mid-January and, in order to share the travelling, we agreed to meet at Polesworth, which lies about half way between the two. We rented the Gatehouse Croft for the weekend and had the most wonderful stay.

The house is probably the best-equipped rental accommodation in which we have ever stayed and we lacked for nothing. With its mixture of Mediaeval structure and modern facilities, it was extremely comfortable and, indeed, on the coldest night of the year [minus 4 C], we were as warm as toast, thanks to the log fire and the under-floor central heating. The whole place was spotless and beautifully presented and we received the friendliest of welcomes from the custodian, Father Philip, who gave excellent guidance on...

Management response:

What a lovely idea to book a cottage for a delayed Christmas. Thank you so much for the kind words. We are glad you found some good walks nearby - and we hope Sherlock and Mycroft enjoyed it too! Hopefully we will welcome you back soon.

Living only a mile away from this property we have watched the scaffolding erected and builders come and go and read about the lottery funded restoration of Polesworth Abbey gatehouse, so with friends from Lincolnshire coming to visit for the week it was a perfect excuse to book the property as a base to introduce them to the area - and oh boy, are we glad we did.

This is one of the most amazing properties it has been our privilege to stay in. Full of character and charm you could feel the history in every beam, wall and rafter whilst enjoying the modern day comfort of under floor heating, free Wi-Fi and dishwasher.

The welcome from Fr. Philip and his flock made us proud to say we were locals and we were amazed at the discoveries we made about our own locality and heritage.

Situated on the Warwickshire/Staffordshire/Leicestershire boarder the property is an ideal base for days out to Bosworth Battle Field, the National Memorial Arboretum Drayton Manor...
