How to get here

The Longshoot Hotel is situated on the border of Warwickshire and Leicestershire. Originally built in 1938 it was a Bass house and Crest motel but has since been extended and remodelled to make it into the hotel it is today. It is close to the centre of Nuneaton, which takes its unusual name from two sources, the Benedictine nunnery around which the town was built and from the word ‘Etone’, which translates as water town.
Nuneaton was listed as a small hamlet in the Domesday Book and a local market was established in 1233 that is still held to this day. The town suffered heavy bombings during the Second World War due to the number of munitions factories in the area. This led to large parts of the town and the centre being re-built after the war.
The area is also famous for the field where the Battle of Bosworth took place and where Richard III came up against a formidable Henry Tudor in 1485. Recently his remains were discovered underneath a car park in nearby Leicester, reigniting interest in the battle where he met his death. Parts of the county were also the inspiration for many of George Eliot’s novels and Arbury Hall is famous for being the birthplace of this popular Victorian novelist, whose name was actually Mary Anne Evans.
The Leicestershire market town of Hinckley, with a history dating back to Saxon times, is equally close to The Longshoot Hotel, as Watling Street forms part of the border between the two counties. Almost opposite the hotel in 2002 a site known as Saxon Paddock revealed extensive archaeological remains of both Iron Age and Romano-British settlements, indicating the strategic importance of Watling Street as a trading route in ancient times.
The name Nuneaton derives from the Benedictine Nunnery around which much of the town was built. With a thriving centre and bustling high street, all the essential amenities close at hand. The area is famous as the birthplace of 19th century author George Eliot and close to the field where Richard III met his death at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485.
Coventry Cathedral (12 miles)
The ruins of the old Cathedral, completely destroyed by aerial bombardment in November 1942, sit in the grounds of the new modernist St Michael’s Cathedral, opened in 1962. Both are open to visitors daily, and among many noteworthy aspects are the Wooden Cross, made from the scorched timbers of the roof of the old cathedral, and the unconventional spire.
Stratford-upon-Avon (31 miles)
Shakespeare’s birthplace is a deservedly popular tourist attraction in Warwickshire. It takes just 40 minutes to get there from The Longshoot Hotel and you can visit the Shakespeare’s birthplace and the farmhouse cottage where his wife, Anne Hathaway, lived as a child. A beautiful place to visit with delightful bars, restaurants and parks along the River Avon, it’s a highly recommended place to visit when you’re in the area.
The Battle of Bosworth Fields (8 miles)
After the discovery of Richard III’s remains in Leicester, interest in the battlefield where he fought, and lost, his last battle against Henry Tudor in 1485 has risen.

This fascinating historical site is just a short 20 minute drive away from The Longshoot Hotel.
