About Wellesbourne

The large village of Wellesbourne is located in south Warwickshire around five miles from Stratford-upon-Avon and seven miles from Warwick and Leamington Spa.

Wellesbourne grew mainly out of agriculture and the very first Farmers Union was formed here in 1872. Nowadays the village is home to a population of around 5,000 made up of longstanding village families and commuters working in the nearby towns.

The village’s Cricket Club dates back to 1824 and received an honourable mention in the novel Tom Brown’s School Days when the teams played the ‘Wellesbourne Match’. During World War Two, the village was home to a key air base and the airfield at RAF Wellesbourne Mountford is thriving today as a private flying school.

With a wide range of amenities available within the village and easy access to the M40 motorway, Wellesbourne is a popular location and has a great variety of housing on offer. Housing stock ranges from one and two-bedroom maisonettes to 17th century cottages and large period housing.


The village went through three major periods of expansion in the 1960s, 1980s and then in the late 1990s leaving a legacy of modern family homes towards the outskirts of the village. Central Wellesbourne remains the heart of the village having the main concentration of older cottages and period properties.

Surrounded by some of Warwickshire’s most scenic countryside and bordering the breathtaking Cotswolds, Wellesbourne continues to be a popular residential location.
