Office Barns - The Forge, The Dairy and The Coach House & Hovel
There are three areas of former barns which were converted to highly specified offices in 2007. Each has underfloor heating with in-floor ducting for telecommunication connections, male and female WC's (including disabled facilities) and kitchenette. The buildings are set within an attractive landscaped setting with sufficient car parking. "The Forge" and "The Dairy" Barns are both single-storey. The "Coach House and Hovel" building is 'L' shaped being part two-storey and part single-storey.
New Build Office Opportunity - 8,696 sq ft

The accommodation has implemented planning and listed buildings consent from Stratford-on-Avon District Council under references 13/00185/FUL and 13/00186/LBC. The proposed scheme comprises office space, meeting rooms, 'buzz space', servery, toilet facilities and storage, along with 58 new parking spaces and covered cycle parking.
The main access for the offices is to the rear of the Dutch barns off Fosse Way, with further access for Harwoods House itself off the Banbury Road. The planning permission for the new office building includes a new further access off Banbury Road; this entrance is also expected to provide access to the fields, which are currently arranged to provide a single grazing area.
Where Dick Turpin stashed his ill-gotten gains, according to local legend, Harwoods House, land and buildings occupy a highly prominent and landmark position at the junction of the B4100 Warwick to Banbury Road and the B4455 Fosse Way, half way between Warwick and Gaydon, close to the village of Ashorne in the glorious Warwickshire countryside.
Jaguar Land Rover and Aston Martin are both close by at Gaydon, with the Warwick Technology Park also just up the road. Coventry and Warwickshire are known for being at the forefront of technical innovation, creating and developing digital and transport technologies for the future. Brands such as Geely London Electric Vehicle Company, PSA Peugeot Citroen, Rolls Royce Aerospace, Tata Motors and VivaRail have made their homes here and the area is a major centre for B2B and gaming/entertainment software.
