About this location

The Leicestershire region

Stathern is located on the fringes of Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Rutland and Lincolnshire. It is an area of outstanding beauty as well as being well served by historic market towns such as Oakham and Stamford and more vibrant cities of Nottingham and Leicester. Belvoir Castle is a famous local land mark and place to visit but is only one suggestion on a very long list of ideas to fill your days!

Vale of Belvoir

Walking: From Garden Cottage there are miles and miles of beautiful walks throughout the Vale of Belvoir. Maps are provided in the cottage and B&B.

Cycling & Mountain Biking: Gentle and more challenging routes locally along the Belvoir trail. Rutland Water for cycle hire and a 26 mile family friendly circuit and Clumber Park has a long trail for all abilities including competition tracks.

Eating and Drinking: Many outstanding local pubs keen to support local producers with seasonal menus. Award winning Red Lion in the village for good ale and delicious food. Local farm shops with tea rooms and delis,can be reached on foot, pedal or by car. Here are some further suggestions:

Red Lion Inn, Stathern.

Plough Inn, Stathern.

The Wheel, Branston. (Game specialists)

The Peacock, Redmile.

The Windmill, Redmile.

The Chequers, Woolsthorpe. (Top 7 main courses £7 before 7pm. A favourite)

Antiques: Annual International antiques fairs at Newark and Swinderby with a wealth of antiques shops and centres in Stamford, Oakham and Uppingham.

Shopping: Plenty of boutique shopping for home and clothes in Oakham and Stamford or visit Nottingham or Leicester for department store heaven. The Birmingham Bullring is just an hour by train from Melton Mowbray.

Stately Homes: Belvoir Castle, Belton House, Grimsthorpe Castle and Burghley House are on the doorstep. Belvoir Castle and Burghley House stage concerts and events in their grounds all year round. For classical music and art exhibitions look to Grimsthorpe Castle and Tolthorpe Manor outside Shakespeare throughout the summer.

Golf: Wide range of pay and play 18 hole courses as well as local driving ranges at Belton Woods and just down the road in Melton Mowbray.

Spa and Beauty: Day spa visits to Belton Woods Hotel, Stapleford Park and Eden Hall Spa. The World famous Ragdale Hall is just 20 minutes away.

Museums and Visitors Centres: Leicester Space Centre, Sherwood Forest visitors centre and Robin Hood museum are all day attractions in Nottingham.

Theme Parks and Fun for Children: Ferry Farm and Whitepost Farm are local farm parks for younger children but for a more diverse range of animals and rides go to Twinlakes just 10 minutes away! This is a full day out and represents excellent value for money. A favourite for our friends and family.

…….or simply enjoy good food and wine and a cosy retreat!
