We offer air rifle shooting workshops. And for those learner drivers we offer a 4x4 off road experience, to enable them to become familiar behind the wheel of a motorised vehicle. Both carry an additional charge and are subject to availability. Our latest addition to the farm are 2 saddle back pigs who are making the most of the vegetable leftovers. For security and peace of mind access to the farm is via pass coded entry. Golf, horse riding, fishing and horse racing nearby.
The hot tub is available for your own personal use and is located just outside the front door of the Granary. It is available at an additional cost of £150 per stay (a small additional charge is required for a 2 week stay). We empty the tub and refill it for each party coming in. The price includes 1200 litres of water, refill of salt (from the red sea) and enough Kw of electricity to heat it. Providing the cover is replaced and the jets turned off when it is not in use there will be sufficient allocated electric units to cover your stay. Children must be accompanied. We have chosen a chemical free Hot Tub which is in line with our green policy. It is a fantastic place to sit at night watching the stars.
The nearest airports are Birmingham International approximately 35 miles and Coventry approximately 28 miles . A car is essential.
An ideal centre from which to explore the Midlands, the Cotswolds and Shakespeare Country with its rich tapestry of culture, superb country houses and gardens and lots of interesting things to do and see. It is ideally positioned 8 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon, 12 miles from Evesham, 13 miles from Worcester, 18 miles from Warwick, 24 miles from NEC, and 30 miles from Cheltenham. It is only 3 miles from the village of Inkberrow and 3 miles from the market town of Alcester.
The well known town of Stratford-upon Avon is 10 minutes away. Village shop 3 miles, a whole host of pubs can be found in the market town of Alcester with a wide variety of restaurants. The NEC and the NIA are easily accessible.
Sitting in a beautiful rural location just ten minutes from historic Stratford-Upon-Avon, and five minutes from The Broom Tavern awarded Gastro Pub of the Year for the West Midlands 2019. This welcoming holiday home is an excellent base for exploring Central England. Stratford-Upon-Avon is one of those “must see” places, and even if you have been before. For such an ancient town, it is surprising how there is always something new to discover whether it is a fresh production of an old favourite at the Royal Shakespeare Company or the discovery of bananas flourishing in the English weather (yes, really! Go to the Stratford Butterfly Farm to see them for yourself.) If it is your first time visiting Stratford-Upon-Avon, get up early to see the house in Henley Street where Shakespeare was born, or New Place where he lived for the last two decades of his life. You can then avoid the crowds with a short drive to Charlecote Manor or Mary Arden’s farm, where Shakespeare’s mother was born.
Of course, there is so much more to Warwickshire than Stratford-Upon-Avon. Once you have exhausted the myriad of shops, Shakespeare attractions (including Guild Hall, where he went to school) and places to eat and drink, escape to the countryside. There are numerous waymarked footpaths and cycling trails nearby, including the five-mile Stratford Greenway which follows a disused railway line between Stratford-Upon-Avon and Long Marston.
Alcester is a lively Roman town with a regular market on the last Sunday of the month. Warwick Castle is a fantastic day out for everyone and Worcester is also within easy reach, as are the sleepy villages and historic towns of the Cotswolds. There are at least a dozen golf courses within a 15-mile radius of Oaks Barn Farm, and the NEC and National Indoor Arena are easily reachable by car.
Stratford-Upon-Avon is not only beautiful, but it is also easy to reach from many parts of the country. At Oaks Barn Farm you and your family can stay in comfort as you discover the many fantastic attractions in and around the area.
Oaks Barn Farm benefits from excellent access to the M5, M42 and M50 motorways. Several superb restaurants can be found in local villages and of course, in Stratford-upon- Avon. Shop, pubs and restaurant within 2.5 miles.

About Wayne and Sue
Wayne and Sue live next to the Granary with Daniel (son) & Jimmy their dog. Sue works full time and Wayne is hands on at the farm looking after both guests and livestock. We offer people a unique experience which includes feeding the saddle back pigs with your left over vegetable waste and if your timing is just right the opportunity to experience lambing and all the excitement of bringing new life in to the world. We offer you the opportunity to meet the animals up close to help feed them and on occasions to help round up the sheep. Children can run the fields and feel the freedom of our secure electric gated small holding, all we ask is that if you go through a gate please close it behind you, unless you want the sheep joining you for breakfast!
Wayne and Sue purchased this House in 1980
Why Wayne and Sue chose Alcester
I was fortunate to be able to buy the original unconverted barn from my mum who owns the surrounding farm land. It is really tranquil and quiet we are set back off the main road by two fields so we are easy to find but away from busy traffic. We are only 10ish minutes (depends who is driving) from Stratford upon Avon and about 35 minutes from the centre of Birmingham. You can see the deer from the Ragley estate grazing on the hill. We are in the heart of the midlands and people constantly comment that they have not had enough time to see all that they wanted to. Its a great place to come and relax and unwind.
What makes this House unique
During the growing season you are able to purchase or pick your own vegetables from the farm produce stall, which also has the bare essentials for the Kandia fire bowl and b b que. Enjoy the evenings in the salt water hot tub please note there is an additional charge for this facility.
