The historic village of Braunston is known as 'The Heart Of The Waterways', as it is the location of the junction of the Grand Union and Oxford canals and it was therefore the historic meeting point for travellers using the canal waterways.
Today, Braunston is a pretty and vibrant village, with canal-side pubs, old canal buildings and canal infrastucture, as well as a marina, cafes, butcher, convenience store, chip shop and hairdressers. Many walks are available locally, combining canalside towpaths and footpaths through the picturesque countryside.
Further afield, Braunston provides the perfect location to explore the English Midlands, with Shakespeare's Stratford-upon-avon, Warwick Castle, Silverstone and Althorp House (Lady Diana's family home) amongst many locations within easy reach. The town of Rugby (birthplace of the game) is also only 5 miles away and it has a mainline train station, with London only 50 mins away.
Braunston Manor Cottage is located on the church side of Braunston Manor (as shown on the website home page), with easy flat walking to the village amenities within a matter of minutes. The cottage has recently been renovated and it now combines modern home comforts, whilst retaining many original features.
The cottage is a detached two storey building with two double bedrooms upstairs, both with 4-poster beds and ensuites. Downstairs is a modern kitchen and dining area, as well as a separate lounge with two large sofas, an instant fire-effect electric stove, for cosy nights in and a smart TV with movie streaming. Free wifi is available throughout the cottage.
Outside is a private garden, as well as a patio area with a bbq, outside lighting, candles, and a dining table. Perfect for a glass, or two, on a warm evening.
We regret that no children under 13, or pets, are permitted to stay.
