Warwickshire is a county in the West Midlands with its county town at Warwick. The county is famous for being the birthplace of William Shakespeare and there are plenty of half-timbered buildings and mellow brick houses in "Shakespeare's County". Warwickshire is also home to the Belfry golf course, the medieval castle at Warwick, the elegant town of Leamington Spa with its Royal Pump Rooms and the famous school at Rugby. Kenilworth Castle became famous in Victorian times following the publication of the novel of the same name by Sir Walter Scott. Properties for rent include city centre apartments and family homes in the plentiful small towns and villages. Demand is high in the county and in particular the Leamington Spa market mirrors that of London with its high demand and short supply.
