Leicestershire Holiday Cottages
On a luxury cottage holiday in Leicestershire, you can visit historic buildings including Leicester Cathedral, the final resting place of King Richard III who died at the Battle of Bosworth Field. Meanwhile, stately homes and gardens such as Belvoir Castle with its stunning Regency-style state rooms offer a beautiful day out.
Opportunities for walks and outdoor adventures are plentiful and the county is home to part of The National Forest. Take a stroll to Swithland Reservoir or walk up Beacon Hill – one of the highest points in Leicestershire where you will be rewarded with outstanding views. With 70 miles of waterways too, kayaking and sightseeing by boat is possible too.
Unique attractions include the National Space Centre and the National Diving Centre at Stoney Cove, complete with shipwreck. However, if you like a pork pie, don’t leave Leicestershire without sampling a Melton Mowbray, preferably in the town of the same name which is somewhat of a rural foodie hub.
