Self-Catering Accommodation Alcester, Warwickshire
The old market town of Alcester is located in the west of the county of Warwickshire and lies at the junction of the Rivers Alne and Arrow. There are plenty of things to see and do here on a self-catering cottage holiday such as taking a visit to the National Trust-owned Coughton Court, a wonderful Tudor country house and Grade I listed building set in beautiful grounds containing a lake and a river. Taking a day trip here and going on a tour of the house is a great way to spend an afternoon when staying in Alcester. Another place to visit in Ragley Hall, a stately home open to the public filled with art work, antique furniture and the Jerwood Sculpture Park.
