From the owner

Swift Stables is a former carriage house recently renovated to a high standard and provides extremely comfortable holiday accommodation for up to 6 guests. Set on a quiet equestrian yard in a rural position close to the village of Mowsley, the property enjoys wonderful views across the Leicestershire countryside.

This magnificent conversion offers guests over 1500 square feet of internal space to enjoy at their leisure.

Perfectly located just 10 minutes from J20 of M1 and just 20 minutes from excellent shopping, sports and culture in Leicester .

The cottage is beautifully appointed, with a large living/dining area with bi-fold doors enjoying glorious views of the open countryside. Excellent well equipped kitchen and 3 good sized bedrooms will provide guests with lots of indoor space. Large garden with trampoline and small orchard too!

Guests will have access to the whole house, with a large wrap around garden and separate parking area for several cars.

Please note the property is also available for longer lets.

This is an ideal spot for couples and families, those interested in walking and bird watching. The Grand Union canal which leads to Foxton Locks a busy tourist attraction can be accessed via a short walk along country lanes. There are many local footpaths you can explore on foot including the Welland Valley Way starting in Market Harborough. You can also find golf, riding, fishing and gliding locally.

No smoking, inside and outside due to construction.

No parties or events allowed.
