The property

Resting in the pretty village of Tilton on the Hill, Hard Day’s Night is a 300 year-old former skittle alley, which has recently been converted into a delightful home.

This stone-built, semi-detached cottage is Grade II listed and with exposed beams throughout, Hard Day’s Night is a charming honey-coloured base from which to explore the beauty of the Leicestershire countryside.

Its location close to the county border makes it ideally situated to explore all that England’s smallest county, Rutland has to offer and yet the City of Leicester is less than half an hour’s drive. You are greeted to the property by off-road parking for two cars, before you step into the open-plan living space where you can grab a spot on the sofa and take advantage of the Smart TV or the DVD player, cook up a storm in the stylish and well-equipped kitchen for guests to enjoy around the dining table or head out of the bi-fold patio doors and enjoy the south-facing garden with a barbecue and furniture so you can indulge in some al fresco dining.

The ground-floor also boasts a cloakroom with WC, handy laundry facilities and a double bedroom with its own en-suite shower room, making ground-floor living possible for those who need it.

Climbing upstairs there is a spacious landing with a dressing table so guests can get ready in style and a double bedroom with a TV for a bit of wind down time in the evening.

Flowing through, there is a second landing also with a dressing table, so each bedroom has their own spacious spot to get ready for an evening out, as well as another double bedroom and a bathroom with both bath and Rainfall shower.

Hard Day’s Night is just a stone's throw away from the village shop which is perfect for grabbing any essentials and even more conveniently, the delightful cottage is adjoining the Rose and Crown pub so it’s just a short walk to enjoy this charming little pub’s range of excellent value traditional pub grub.

In one direction, you can take a short drive into the town of Oakham where children can enjoy feeding the animals at Rutland Farm Park, and there is also a train station, a museum, playgrounds and a 12th century castle.

Also in this direction is the Rutland Water Nature Reserve which is home to a thrilling aqua park, a golf course, Rutland Falconry and Rutland Zoo.

There is cycle hire, boat rental and other water sports and 26 miles of paths to explore around the reservoir.

In the opposite direction, you can explore the thriving city of Leicester which has a captivating cathedral, plenty of interesting museums and galleries including the National Space Centre, a go-kart track and the Flip Out indoor trampoline park, as well as shops, bars and eateries to spoil you for choice.

The lovely market towns of Uppingham, Market Harborough and Melton Mowbray, famous for the Pork Pie, are all around 20 minutes away from your base in Tilton on the Hill.

There are also many attractive villages nearby and a host of farm shops and cafes offering outstanding local produce.

Hard Day’s Night is a stunning, comfortable home with all modern conveniences, which has been created from a quirky old building in the heart of this friendly village.
