Dorset House (REF NLQ) is to be found in the heart of Alcester’s historic conservation area, facing the old town hall and parish church. With 15th-century origins, this handsome town house was once a large brewery whose extensive cellars ran beneath the length of the house adjoining the long walled garden leading down to the River Arrow. Fishing is available in season. Dorset House Cottage, , (Ref NLT) is very warm and welcoming with an open fire and double doors lead out to a sitting area where kingfishers can be spotted. Dorset House (Ref NLQ) and Dorset House Cottage, , (Ref NLT) are fully restored listed buildings, each of which is well equipped and furnished with antiques and objets d’art, making these wonderful properties an ideal base for an interesting holiday, ideal for family reunions or a holiday with friends. The location is perfect for walkers and bird-watchers, and next to the property there is a bowling green available by prior arrangement. Alcester itself is a small, attractive town at the heart of one of the most popular tourist areas in the country, 8 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon. The town’s heritage spans at least two millennia, from its origins as an important Roman town and fort located at the junction of the two roads - the Salt Way from Droitwich and Ryknield Street to the thriving medieval town and busy 18th-century coaching and staging post (traces of which can be seen today as part of Alcester’s exciting Heritage Trail). Local attractions include Ragley Hall - seat of the Marquis of Hertford whose 19th-century ancestor, the fourth Marquis and his natural son, Sir Richard Wallace, founded the magnificent Wallace Collection in London, Coughton Court - one of the country’s great Tudor houses, home of the Throckmorton family since 1409 and its implication with the Gunpowder Plot, the medieval Kinwarton Dovecot - still housing doves in its circular walls, and many other notable country houses. Further afield, but within easy reach, are Warwick and Kenilworth Castles, the picturesque villages of the Cotswolds, the NEC and NIA at Birmingham and Coventry. Alcester has an excellent range of shops, pubs and restaurants and a fine museum.
