Full description

The Elephant & Castle is a stylish, modern home with six bedrooms, open-plan kitchen, stunning dining room and separate annexe, all set in 1.16 acres of gardens in the heart of Rowington. The former Inn, dating back to 1783, has been completely re-modelled, extended and re-furbished by a team of craftsmen and interior designers. The property is available with no chain.

The downstairs offers flexibility. The original stone floors contrast beautifully against the white walls and beams. The large dining room has room for a huge dining table where you could host wonderful family lunches or dinner parties. A chic, country style kitchen is a light and large central hub of the home. Off the kitchen is a large utility room with lots of storage and Aga. 

The sitting room is subtly split into two areas; a formal sitting area and a seating around the fire. There are windows looking out to every direction and a there is a large fireplace with log burner. 

The other space downstairs is a separate annexe with bedroom and en-suite bathroom and cellar below. There is a private door making this an ideal space for a nanny, Granny or teenager wanting their own space.

The name Elephant & Castle is believed to be derived from the original publican who used the Coventry coats of Arms as a pub sign. At the end of the 19th Century, Jane Ryland, of Shakespeare Hall, Rowington, was a regular church goer and her route to St Lawrence Church was via Queens Drive and past The Elephant. She was not impressed with the drinking going on as she passed and so decided to buy the Inn and close it down. In return, she set up the Working Mens Club for the men of the village.
