Leicestershire Holiday Cottages

Leicestershire Holiday Cottages

Situated almost in the centre of England is Leicestershire, a county renowned for the pork pie. And if that wasn't enough to persuade you to choose it as your next holiday destination, allow us to highlight a few more of its attractions.

Leicester itself is a city which has been in the news a lot lately for having been the burial place of King Richard III, whose remains were discovered under a car park in 2012. The site and that of his reburial, in the grand Leicester Cathedral, can both be visited. For something totally up to date, there's the National Space Centre, Bradgate Park and several shopping centres.

Children and adults alike might enjoy Conkers, the discovery centre in Ashby-De-La-Zouch which features indoor and outdoor activities including a tree top walk. Fans of the aforementioned pork pie should make a pilgrimage to Melton Mowbray, the birthplace of this culinary creation and exceedingly pretty town.

Or why not enjoy a leisurely walk along Foxton Locks in Market Harborough, perhaps popping into a traditional pub for a decent pint along the way? There's lots of wildlife to spot and it's considered one of the most interesting places to visit in the county.

Big kids and sentimentalists might love the Great Central Railway, a heritage museum and 8-mile line with a double track, enabling people to experience steam trains passing at speed, apparently. If that sounds a bit too energetic, then National Trust property, Stoneywell might offer some calm. A beautiful cottage and tranquil grounds, the property was built in the arts and crafts style in 1899 and its rooms are filled with artefacts, old toys and furniture. Visits must be pre-booked, but you won't be disappointed.

Alternatively, there are several walking and cycling routes and bridleways that can help you explore the county at your own pace.

Ultimately, there is something for everyone in Leicestershire, making it the perfect place for a British staycation.
