Do not be deceived by this cottage’s exterior. It may look old and rusty on the outside, but it sure is cozy on the inside. Once a blacksmith’s forge, it now holds two bedrooms, a bathroom, a living area and a breakfast bar. This luxury cottage fit for three sits on the edge of Barston, around 8 kilometers (5 miles) from the town center, with some shops and pubs only a minute or two away. In case you’re wondering, it is also open to housing pets. Just make sure they behave well, of course.

A bit further east of Solihull and more into Coventry is another 4-person ground floor cottage. Although a twenty-minute drive from Solihull, this is more accessible from those coming from the east. It still, however, provides the same comfort as the previous accommodations. Driving in, you will see brick walls complementing the green lawn, with a pebbled path guiding you to the doorway. Upon entering, you are greeted with a spacious modern interior that is as homey as it is elegant. Although only with one bedroom, the sofa could also be used as a double bed that is settled right in front of a wood-burning stove.

With this great selection of accommodations, you’ll surely find out why.
