About the property

Nestled within the charming village of Billesdon is Garden Cottage, an exceptional, detached property enjoying an idyllic location within the beautiful Leicestershire landscape and just a short drive from several attractive market towns and the bustling city centre of Leicester.

With so much to see and do within the area and a stylish interior design to enjoy, this outstanding self-catering accommodation has been designed with a group of families and friends in mind, making a fabulous base to enjoy all year round.

Venture through the front door to find the dining room, where you can look forward to tucking into a takeaway from the mobile fish and chip van or relish in a delicious home-cooked dish, whilst enjoying the company of family and friends.

Cross the beautiful wood flooring and discover a seamless blend of character and contemporary, with the multi-fuel fire complementing the plush seating arrangement, perfectly positioned for enjoying the latest box set on the Smart TV.

Any budding chefs of the group will be delighted by the sleek kitchen that’s awaiting them, where the beautiful tiled flooring lies beneath the impressive Range cooker; the focal point of this room.

The quality appliances are accompanied by a wonderful breakfast bar, a perfect spot of popping open a bottle of fizz to savour as dinner simmers on the hob.

From here, you will discover a handy utility, boasting a washer/dryer and a fridge/freezer, as well as the ground-floor shower room with a spacious walk-in shower.

Return to the hallway and climb the staircase to discover the master suite, elegantly decorated with plenty of space to keep your things and a king-size bed, draped in a sumptuous duvet and quality linens.

Bedroom two comprises a king-size bed and bedroom three houses a single bed, offering an ideal set-up for a range of party make-ups.

From the first floor, you will also find access to the rear garden, where you can spend sunny afternoons, lounging on outdoor furniture.

The property also benefits from one off-road parking space, as well as garage storage, should you wish to bring bikes or other outdoor equipment along for an action-packed break.

Better acquaint yourself with your surroundings, as you meander the endearing streets of Billesdon, home to two pubs, a village shop, as well as the mobile fish and chip van that visits twice a week.

From here, head to the city of Leicester, renowned for over 2,000 years of history, diverse culture and cuisine and excellent shopping and sports facilities.

After an afternoon of retail therapy in the Highcross shopping complex, take some time to visit the King Richard III Visitor Centre, Leicester Abbey and the National Space Centre, attractions that suit a family of all ages and tastes.

Rutland Water is also nearby, where you and your loved ones can look forward to a plethora of activities including angling, bike hire, watersports, mini golf and walking amidst 4,200 acres of open countryside.

The Rutland county town of Oakham is well worth a visit and Uppingham exudes plenty of old-world charm too, whilst Market Harborough is close by and the spectacular Foxton Locks and a short drive north takes you to Melton Mowbray known as the ‘Rural Food Capital’.

The delightful Georgian town of Stamford is within easy reach and is a major attraction together with Burghley House.

Other attractions within the area include the Windmill Farm Park, the National Trust owned Stoneywell and the 900-year-old Rockingham Castle.

Bring your loved ones to Garden Cottage for a memorable holiday.
