Trendy cocktail bars and Waitrose
It’s really well connected, with Birmingham airport just 20 minutes away and should you need to pop down to London and it’s just over an hour from Coventry station. You are a short walk away from the train station linking Kenilworth with Coventry, Leamington and then the wider rail network and are a stroll away from Waitrose, The Kenilworth Cocktail Lounge, The Almanack, Indian Edge and Talisman Square.
With a further hop and step… You can be eating supper at Michelin starred The Cross and you can be drinking a pint at Kenilworth’s oldest pub The Virgin & Castle.
Kenilworth High Street boasts banks galore, numerous coffee houses, bundles of restaurants, funky bars, fantastic schools for children of all ages, a Waitrose, Boots and a weekly farmers market that dishes up some delicious local produce. Mr Clarke is particularly fond of the high percentage of pubs all within wobbling distance of each other.
A town with a rural feel
Kenilworth is surrounded by breath-taking countryside and some lovely walks are on hand to help you blow off the cobwebs after work or if you just fancy a long Sunday ramble. We particularly like the walk from Kenilworth Castle to the Alpaca Farm “Faerie-Tale Alpacas”. Not to mention the outstanding park, Abbey Fields.
There’s a super friendly community spirit in Kenilworth too and you’ll always find something in the calendar to enjoy. It could be the annual bonfire and fireworks display that draws in thousands of folk. Or the annual duck race on Boxing Day (no, not real ducks). All in all, it’s a place you’ll feel at home.
