Mr Clarke thinks :
Great location and well appointed
On a pretty mews in Kenilworth Old Town you will find this gorgeous two bedroom house. The cottage was once part of the stable block belonging to Kenilworth Hall, it is now a beautiful two bedroom house with a gorgeous courtyard garden. The property is ideal for a couple or a single person who wants something a little more special than a standard apartment. It is also ideal as a lock up and leave home for those lucky enough to have a second home in sunnier climates. It would also make a great investment property to rent out.
Kenilworth Hall Mews is nestled in Kenilworth Old Town, opposite Abbey Fields and a few minutes from Kenilworth High Street. You may struggle to find it at first as it is delightfully secluded but when you walk towards the bottom of the lane and see the front door you will be delighted you took the time. The downstairs has a large open plan sitting and dining room with high ceilings and a great kitchen that leads out to the wonderful courtyard garden. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a bathroom - the master bedroom has original beams and is more like a boutique hotel suite than a normal bedroom.
We all know that location is key when buying a home and you will agree that Kenilworth Hall Mews is in an enviable spot. You will be living in the heart of the Old Town with Abbey Fields on your doorstep, great pubs and restaurants within walking distance and you are on a quiet, friendly and private road. As well as being in a wonderful spot, the cottage has a warm vibe - it's hard to explain but when you walk in to the home you are greeted with a sense of calm and you can imagine a great house warming party, Christmas gatherings and summer barbecues.

Mrs Clarke loves :
The courtyard garden is picture perfect
Only three of the nine homes on the mews have outside space. This cottage is one of them and it has a great courtyard garden that is both pretty and low maintenance. the current owner describes it as an extra room because she loves opening the door and having a cup of green tea on a weekend morning or hosting a barbecue in summer months.
The kitchen has lots of work space and room for a washing machine. There is then a large living room with space for a table to dine from, and sofas to relax on. It's a cosy room that works hard. Because the cottage is so quiet, you can be curled up with a book and not hear any noise - bliss.
Upstairs you find the two bedrooms and a bathroom. The Master bedroom has plenty of storage and space for a big bed. The second bedroom is ideal for an office or a single bedroom. The bathroom has a bath with a shower above, sink and WC.
We are all utterly charmed by the location, the interior and the courtyard garden and we look forward to making this someone's very special home.

Trendy cocktail bars and Waitrose
Being a short walk away from the train station linking Kenilworth with Coventry, Leamington and then the wider rail network. You are also only only a short walk 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 Loch Fyne or the Michelin starred The Cross. You can be drinking a pint at The Queen & Castle or The Virgins. There is a newsagent, a bakery, a tea shop, a physio and lots of lovely local peeps to say hello to.
Kenilworth High Street boasts banks galore, numerous coffee houses, bundles of restaurants, funky bars, fantastic schools for kiddly winks 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.
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. And should you like stepping back in time, you could always descend onto Kenilworth Castle, which is lovingly cared for by English Heritage.
