Reviewed 8 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

My husband and 3 children rented the Granary and were very happy staying for the 5 nights, the accommodation was perfect in that is was clean, decor was up to date but we still had the feel of the wonderful cottage charm. Ken met us when we arrived and showed how everything worked, he was friendly and easy to deal...

Management response:

Thanks for the review: so pleased you liked the cottage. Some Sat Nav systems do seem to pin-point our postcode a few hundred yards along Shawbury Lane, which can be misleading

Reviewed 28 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

We wanted a quiet, relaxed, comfortable hideaway for Christmas in the countryside but not far from an assortment of villages. That is exactly what we got. The cottage was well equipped, the beds were comfortable and the cottage was spacious for four (or even five) adults. The downstairs shower had excellent pressure. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners....

Management response:

Thanks for the review. We're really pleased that you enjoyed your Christmas in the cottage.

About the neighbourhood
Shustoke is an ancient village in Warwickshire, recorded in The Great Survey of 1086 (Domesday Book) as “Scotescote.” The parish registers are some of the earliest in the country, dating from the reign of Henry VIII, and include entries in the handwriting of Sir William Dugdale, who was born on Shawbury Lane and is widely regarded as the country’s first and greatest antiquarian. Today, Shustoke retains its village character, in a quiet and beautiful rural setting close to Coton Lakes and Ladywalk Nature Reserve as well as other areas of natural interest off the beaten track.
For the business traveller, Shustoke is just a short drive from key Midlands venues such as the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) and The Belfry conference centre. Hams Hall Business Park and Birmingham Business Park a...

From M6, leave at junction 4… From the motorway junction roundabout, take the A446 (Stonebridge Road) towards Coleshill. Stay on the A446 until it crosses the B4114 at a roundabout just outside Coleshill. Take the third exit at this roundabout, heading into Coleshill on the B4114 “Birmingham Road”. Continue straight on at the crossroads in Coleshill, where you will see a pub on the right as you approach, and where the B4114 then becomes “Blyth Road.” Continue on the B4114, and you will come past Shustoke reservoir signed on your left as you come into Shustoke. Carry on through Shustoke village, passing the Plough Inn on the right. At the other end of the village, you will come to a sharp left bend in the road, with the Griffin Inn on your left. Turn right here. This is Shawbury Lane. Conti... more
