Renting a holiday cottage in Leicestershire is a great way to see everything the County offers while having a relaxing home to return to at the end of each day. Leicestershire plays a significant role in the evolution of the English countryside, encompassing geology, biodiversity, rich landscapes and history. Walk its footpaths to see and enjoy its quintessential rural landscapes. At the other end of the spectrum, the National Space Centre in Leicester is rated one of the country’s top attractions.

Alternatively, start your self-catering holiday with a relaxed stroll around the City’s High Cross Shopping Centre and the city centre. Also in Leicester is the New Walk Museum and Art Gallery, perfect for a rainy afternoon. If there is time left in the day, grab a coffee to sup in the peaceful Bradgate County Park.
