Mill Lane Holiday Cottage

House, Entire place - Gilmorton, United Kingdom

ID 9152


Number One, Mill Lane is a delightful, one bedroom end of terrace holiday cottage, that dates back to the early 19th Century. It retains considerable character and is perfect for couples or parties of up to four guests with the use of a sofa bed in the lounge.

Located on the edge of the picturesque village of Shearsby, the cottage is surrounded by some of south Leicestershire's most beautiful open rolling countryside and is conveniently placed for access to the city of Leicester, Lutterworth and Market Harborough.

Shearsby is a beautiful little no-through village, set around a picturesque village green. It has local village pub - The Chandlers Arms - that has a CAMRA real ale award and is well known locally for it’s good beers and wide selection of home cooked food. In August there is a music festival that takes place on the village green where music including live jazz is played (usually the first Saturday evening in August – contact the owners for further details).

Shearsby does not have a shop but the nearby village of Fleckney and small town of Wigston are just a few miles away and offer super-markets for groceries, which can also be purchased from local shops in surrounding villages.

The cottage is perfectly positioned in a quiet rural location, yet it is conveniently close to the picturesque town of Market Harborough with its bustling streets offering eating establishments, boutiques, independent shops and a sports centre with swimming pool.

This is a superb base from which to explore the area. Situated south of Leicestershire, and near to the Northamptonshire border, it is within easy reach of many attractions and interesting places including: Melton Mowbray, Stratford upon Avon, Rugby and Warwick - all within an hour's drive. Closer to home are Rockingham Castle, Althorp House, Bradgate Park, Foxton Locks and Kelmarsh Hall. The National Space centre in Leicester makes a fascinating day out or you can follow the Naseby Battlefield trail around Clipston and Naseby, along with the surrounding countryside.

For those who enjoy walking, there are plenty of scenic walks from the village with many local footpaths allowing you to explore the area by foot. The area also offers sailing, golf, riding, fishing and gliding at the National Soaring centre - all available locally. And for those with an interest in diving, the cottage is approximately half an hour from Stoney Cove, the UK’s National Diving Centre.
