Great Place to stay in South Leicestershire


Victorian Barn holiday cottage near Theddingworth in Leicestershire

While visiting family in Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Derbyshire recently we rented a cottage called the Victoria Barn. It turns out we were the first renters as the lovely couple who own it Sarah and Michael Skinner have just finished it and put it on the market. I can highly recommend the place. It is very private, located in the corner of a wheat field down a private drive. Surrounded by flowers and fields. The cottage itself has been very well done with quality fittings throughout, and is fully equipped, right down to tablets for the dish washer. There is a double bedroom with private wet room downstairs and twin beds with private washroom upstairs. The main lounge/ dining area is open plan so the upstairs is galleried. The location is very convenient being just off the M1 and not far from Market Harborough, a lovely small market town with a weekly antiques market. It pretty, private and comfortable for us, wife and I and two boys 13 and 15. We had a week there and loved it.
