WHERE THE FECK IS FECKENHAM?

Feckenham is a tiny, picturesque village consisting of just under two hundred houses, two pubs, two churches, one garage and one FeckenOdeon. We're on the B4090 between Hanbury and Cookhill. If you have a map to hand look for Redditch - you'll find us about three miles to the south-west. Once you're in the village the FeckenOdeon is simple to locate - we're handily positioned on the High Street about half way between the Rose & Crown and The Forest at Feckenham (formerly The Lygon Arms).

Scroll down for other attractions and a "What's On" Guide.

Not a lot! - which is just the way we like it! Having said that it's quite a lively place with a  a busy social calendar. The Square is actually the village green and a happy half hour can be spent just meandering around in the chocolate box prettiness of it all. There are lots of well marked public footpaths if you want a more extensive ramble - there's a (slightly faded) map in the village hall car park to get you started.

The following is a list (with links if available) of some of the things to be enjoyed in Feckenham....

The Rose & Crown, High Street. Tel.: 01527 892188 : Classic country pub with a warm welcome from the Clarke family. Bar, lounge, separate restaurant and large beer garden.

Feckenham Cricket Club, Mill Lane : With the idyllic backcloth of the church and the rolling Worcestershire countryside this has to be one of the nicest places to sleep though village cricket on a sunny afternoon - there's a bar too! Click HERE for fixtures.
