The Farmhouse - ACCOMMODATION

The main house was built in 1788 when a local man Francis Hiorn commissioned an architect to replicate Asgill House a property he had seen in Richmond overlooking the River Thames and subsequently fallen in love with. Careful attention was taken to create an exact replica of this Grade I Historical Palladian villa which had been the home of Sir Charles Asgill, Lord Mayor of London in 1761. It has been built using Sandstone Ashlar, over its three storeys, with flanking wings and a Pyramidal slate roof and projecting modillion eaves cornice. The symmetrical layout of the casements with glazing bars throughout and many more special architectural and historical features combine to give Kites Nest Farm its Grade II listing.

Location - Warwick
Warwick, Warwick Parkway and Leaminton Spa offer direct fast services to London and Birmingham. Its central position makes it an ideal location for commuting to the rest of the UK with easy access to M40, M42, M1 and M6. Birmingham International Airport is just 15 miles away. The great fire of Warwick in 1694 destroyed much of the medieval town and as a result most of the buildings post date this period. One of the most popular tourist destinations in Warwick is its world famous castle. William the Conqueror founded Warwick Castle in 1068 on his way to Yorkshire to deal with the rebellion in the north. A consistent lure to the area for families is Warwick Boys School which is believed to be the oldest boys school in the country.

Leamington Spa and Stratford upon Avon.
Leamington with its quality High Street shopping, boutiques, restaurants, bars and theatres and of course its famous Victorian Spa are just four miles away and Shakespeares Stratford-upon-Avon is close at hand where The Royal Shakespeare Company resides. Stratford offers alternative main stream shopping to Leamington and with its 5 million tourists a year it caters for locals and visitors alike.

Kenilworth
Kenilworth is a small and beautiful town which lies in the heart of leafy Warwickshire. The stunning castle is just one of the many reasons to visit, it has a diverse range of Independent shops, cafes and restaurants and popular state schools. The town also incorporates Abbey Fields, which includes picnic areas, a lake, a leisure centre (outdoor and indoor swimming pools) and tennis courts.
