Leicestershire holiday cottages

One of England's prettiest counties, Leicestershire has it all. Rolling green hills and unspoiled scenery, where you can rent a cottage or farmhouse as a base for perfect family holidays. Enjoy walking in the Vale of Belvoir, which translates as 'beautiful view'. Take the dog, it's the ideal pet friendly destination. See Belvoir Castle, home to the Duke & Duchess of Rutland and one of the most elegant ancestral homes in England. Visit Melton Mowbray and sample some of the famous pork pies in this historic market town. Don't forget to try the world renowned Stilton cheese too. Leicestershire also boasts Conkers. This adventure park and discovery centre in the heart of the National Forest is pet friendly and offers exciting fun for all ages. The city of Leicester is a must for shopping and eating out. The city centre, presided over by the Hayward Memorial Clock Tower has won gold awards for urban regeneration. For great days out the National Space Centre, where you can try a simulated space flight, or Twycross Zoo are sure to be fun for all ages.
