Wellesbourne is a large village, east of Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire.

Understand[edit]

Wellesbourne is the formation of two villages Wellesbourne Hastings and Wellesbourne Mountford.

In 2017, Wellesbourne Hall, the village's grade-II listed manor house, was under offer for £1,500,000. It isn't open to the public. However the nearby National Trust-owned Charlecote Park has many amenities for a day out regardless of whether you want to see the inside of the house itself.
