Peartree Holiday Cottages at Wilmcote near Stratford-upon-Avon
The village of WILMCOTE is in the heart of Shakespeare Country just three miles from Stratford-upon-Avon and eight miles from Warwick. Pear Tree Holiday Cottages are near the village green and looks across a paddock towards MARY ARDEN'S HOUSE, the home of Shakespeare's mother's family.
Sharing a beautiful three-quarters of an acre garden The accommodation provides an oasis of calm away from bustling Stratford. Please note: The Apple Loft and Acanthus Cottage are completely non-smoking and unsuitable for pets, we do welcome children over 3 years old.
Recent investigations into the Arden Estates show that PEAR TREE COTTAGE once belonged to William Shakespeare's parents, Mary (nee Arden) and John Shakespeare, who inherited it from Robert Arden - Mary's father. They mortgaged the property in 1578 and forfeited it, by order of the Chancery Court in 1597 for failure to repay the loan.

Visits to Stratford can be made by tour bus from Mary Arden's House, by train from the village Railway Station, or by your own Car in 10 mins.
