A pretty posh village with walkable amenities
Claverdon sits in the heart of the beautiful Warwickshire countryside, just down the road from Warwick, and almost equidistant between Stratford upon-Avon and Royal Leamington Spa.
Although Claverdon is a tucked away in beautiful Warwickshire countryside, it’s certainly not remote. In fact, it’s exceedingly well connected. You could be jetting off to warmer climes from Birmingham International Airport, only 25 minutes away, zipping along to London from Hatton or Warwick Parkway Station or heading home along the M40 quicker than Mrs Clarke can say ‘supper’s ready’.
Shrewley is close by and a hub of activity with a post office, deli counter and very friendly service. A pleasant walk across a few fields (or a short drive) in any direction and you will find a pub. The Red Lion is a real cracker for Sunday lunch, the Fleur de Lys in Lowsonford is famous for its pies and canal side location and the Durham Ox is just up the road and we love The Crown for its good ale and warm welcome.
The heart of the Warwickshire countryside
Shopaholics will adore Leamington Spa and Stratford for their variety of independent shops and retail parks, and you’ll find all the big names in Solihull, including John Lewis.
If it’s country living you are after then look no further. It is surrounded by equestrian activities, walking routes and there is a lovely community. Rugby fans and players have a good old fashioned, friendly club. Claverdon RFC has a thriving children’s section and two men’s teams on a Saturday. The Ardencote Health Club has tennis and squash courts, golf course, swimming pool, gym, spa, hairdressers and restaurant. There are lots of children’s activities and Mrs Clarke even learnt to swim in the pool many years ago!
Claverdon has its own primary school in the village and there are a range of secondary options nearby, including grammar and independent schools.
The local residents are very proud of where they live. “You know we were voted in the top 50 villages in the UK by the Telegraph?” is often heard at dinner parties.
