Location - Rugby has grown to become Warwickshires second largest market town, boasting a variety of designer and high street shops, restaurants and pubs. Famed for its public school, the birth of rugby football and the Frank Whittle jet engine, Rugby is also home to the green open spaces of Caldecott Park, Coombe Abbey Country Park, Brownsover Hall and Draycote Water. With a range of excellent schools, Rugby is ideally placed for a well-rounded education. Equally so for transport too, thanks to its convenient motorway links and speedy rail services to Birmingham, Leicester and London Euston in under 50 minutes. Situated on the northern edge of Rugby, this location combines the relaxation of a semi-rural retreat by the River Avon, with plenty of amenities close including a new retail park at hand and the Warwickshire countryside beyond.
