Lapworth | Canals & Countryside
Lapworth is a great village tucked away in the beautiful Warwickshire countryside. But it’s certainly not remote. In fact we think it is better connected than most places in England. You could be jetting off to warmer climes from Birmingham airport, which is only 20 minutes away, zipping along to London from Lapworth Station or zooming down the M40 quicker than Mrs Clarke can say “supper’s ready”. If it is Birmingham you are wanting to get to then Lapworth station runs regular services to all Birmingham stations.
The school is very sought after and yummie mummies are queuing up to get the little ones enrolled. After drop off they head to The Virgin Active for some pilates. “There is a great network of people in the village. Lapworth has a really friendly community.”
That’s the boring stuff done! Did I mention there are three pubs? Mr & Mrs Clarke’s favourite is The Boot. “The beer is delicious and the food is wonderful. Mr Wilkes, a charming regular at The Boot recommends the annual bonfire “It’s a must see. The teepee in the back garden is great for a fancy party, but I love a proper pint in the snug.”
Lapworth is surrounded by stunning countryside and some lovely National Trust properties. The cycling around the area is fantastic and with Dynamic Rides, a great cycle shop in Hockley Heath, there is always someone to jump on the saddle with.
“We love Lapworth because it’s so friendly. Everyone says hello when you are walking the dogs along the canal and it’s just a really pretty and safe place to live” said Mrs Williams when we last popped into the village for a bottle of wine at Frazier’s wine merchants.
You are close to lots of little hubs like Hockley Heath, which has a McLaren garage if you fancy a new car, a great fish and chip shop, a superb Indian restaurant, and a dry cleaners. Henley-in-Arden for great ice cream, Warwick, Solihull, Leamington and Kenilworth. It’s a well connected place to live.
