The Heart of England/Peak District
The Heart of England / Peak District / Leicestershire and Rutland region
Leicestershire and Rutland have a multitude of places of interest to discover.
Within a reasonable distance from Amberliegh Cottage are a host of interesting places to visit.
Cottesmore (pronounced Cotts'more as a result of its origins as Cotts Moor) is a picturesque stone village in the unspoilt county of Rutland. The local honey coloured stone, evident throughout all of the county, is well represented in Cottesmore and the village has been designated as a Conservation Area. Thatch is also used in a number of distinctive older, and modern, properties including the Sun Inn!
The Sun Inn is as pretty as the proverbial picture, the 17th century inn looks like everyone's idea of the quintessential English country pub, with its tidy thatched roof, whitewashed walls, hanging baskets and flagstoned courtyard. Inside it maintains its charms, thanks to flagged floors and beamed ceilings.
The Village store and Sub Post Office.
Daily newspapers, groceries, fresh bread, wines and spirits, video rental, National Lottery, foreign currency, travel insurance.
