A stay at the Pytchley, West Haddon not only offers rural escapism, but we can highly recommend some surrounding towns & cities for shopping, cafe and a bustling atmosphere. Some include: Stratford Upon Avon, Leicester, Warwick, Leamington Spa, Kenilworth, Birmingham, Coventry, Oxford, Cambridge, Market Harborough.
We are situated close to the M1, a bus runs through the village, and a train station in Long Buckby reaches London very quickly and cheaply.
