There are a good range of local shops, pubs, restaurants and many other amenities all within easy walking distance.
In the surrounding area there are many different historic attractions to go and see such as Warwick castle, Kenilworth Castle and Stoneleigh Abbey. With Stratford-upon-Avon a few miles up the road, the home of Shakespeare has plenty of activities to choose from.
There are many beautiful and interesting walks through typical Warwickshire countryside offering the opportunity to visit the attractive villages of Great Alne, Walcote, Haselor and Oversley Green. Alcester also forms part of the 'Heart of England Way', 'Arden Way' and 'Monarch's Way' making it a natural destination for walkers.
The area has pretty much all corners covered regarding activities. For example, Draycote Sailing Club, Stratford Race Course, Cheltenham Race course, Fishing lakes and the internationally renowned Silverstone Circuit are all nearby.
If you want variety on your door step you will be at the right place. From the large West Midlands Safari Park to the small Stratford Butterfly farm, there are many places to explore. Also check out what show is on at the NEC.
For treating yourself you also have a a great selection. Stratford-upon-Avon itself hosts many different shops but 40 mins on the train will get you to the BullRing Birmingham shopping centre.
