Brickyard Cottages built a little over 160 years ago was once the site of a small local brick yard, of which there are many, scattered over the area owing, to the heavy clay found in this part of the British Isles. No signs of the former workings are now visible, as they disappeared many years ago. The two cottages, over the last 20 years, have been converted, by the present owners, into a picturesque family home.
They are situated in farmland about half a mile outside the small village of Offchurch, Warwickshire close to the Fosse Way and Welsh Road junction. It is very peaceful with a small woodland and meadow behind the garden. You will be sure of a warm and friendly welcome. There is also a good pub called The Stags Head in the village.
Royal Leamington Spa, an interesting Georgian town with The Pump Rooms, now a museum, is 15 minutes drive away and has some good shops and many restaurants. Warwick is a historic town, about 25 minutes away, where you can visit the magnificent medieval castle voted by BBC listeners as Britain's favourite caste. Kenilworth is about 20 minutes away and has a ruined castle well worth a visit.
Stratford-upon Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, is about 30 minutes away. While in Stratford it is possible to hire a boat and explore the river Avon. There is also a Brass-rubbing centre close to the lovely parish church. Coventry is about 20 minutes away where you visit St Michael's Cathedral, built next to the remains of the old Cathedral and designed by Basil Spence. It also houses the tapestry by Graham Sutherland.
