    Hill Farm sleeping up to 10 guests

    This holiday property is a great base for a large family or groups of friends to discover all that Leicestershire has to offer.
    This large detached farmhouse is situated on a small working stock farm just 1½ miles from the pretty village of Harby with its organic farm shop, and is just 7 miles from the popular market town of Melton Mowbray. Surrounded by open countryside, the verdant landscape offers all sorts of outside activities, and with excellent walks and cycle routes straight from the door, S72788 provides an ideal family base for exploring the attractions of the neighbouring countryside and counties. Set on the edge of the Vale of Belvoir, Belvoir Castle is nearby and the magnificent 3000-acre Rutland Water attracts visitors worldwide to enjoy water sports, bird watching, walking and cycling. Take a trip aboard the Rutland Belle Cruiser, visit the famous ospreys at Egleton Nature Reserve, or browse around Barnsdale Gardens, designed by the late Geoff Hamilton. Sherwood Park, Rufford Country Park and Clumber Park are all well worth a day out, or you can enjoy a stroll alongside Grantham Canal with superb walks along the towpath. The market town of Oakham, Stamford and Grantham, as well as Melton Mowbray are all nearby, and for serious shopping, Nottingham is a must. A day spa with mini gym, outdoor Jacuzzi, indoor heated swimming pool (10m), sauna and refreshments can be found just a 2-minute drive away (pre-booking required). Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    "We were a mixed group of infants, children, cousins, aunts/uncles and grand parents having a pre-Christmas get-to-together. The farm setting was brilliant for the children, walks on the door step. The large lounge was all we used as we were generally in and out of the large, sociable kitchen. The welcome pack was appreciated as was the dog goodies. Very caring owners."

    "we had a lovely weekend, the farm was fantastic for our needs, the little touches really made it special. Toiletries etc. We will certainly try and use it again"

    "Stayed for a long weekend with friends. Even though the website said pub in 1 mike it’s actually 1.7 miles, and there are no local taxi firms.On the Saturday evening one of the upstairs toilets blocked (seems to be a common theme reading the reviews) and owner didn’t seem overly concerned so 8 of us shared one toilet. Could really do with a downstairs toilet as well. Need to sort the wasps nests in the guttering. Left the window open in the bathroom only to be bombarded with a swarm of them over the light which luckily as there was wasp killer spray we managed to kill them. Overall a nice place and we had a great stay."

    "S72788 was difficult to keep warm. I realise we were visiting in a particularly cold February. However the heating went off too early in the evening and with young grandchildren did not come on early enough in the morning. We solved the problem by moving the fire from one lounge and using it in the lounge attached to the kitchen. Enjoyed the piano in this lounge. The kitchen was well stocked, good sized table and there was a lovely welcome hamper. However not enough towels. The outside area had plenty of chairs and tables if you were visiting in the summer. One side of the cottage is right in the farm yard so be prepared for tractors and plenty of animals! One bedroom is downstairs but there is no downstairs toilet. if going in cold weather take plenty of thermals!"

    "Overall very good. Wonderful farm setting. Scoring was only reduced as one shower was Out of action and one toilet difficult to flush! Otherwise a lovely, clean and homely stay. Thank you"

    "We hired this property for the week of Christmas 2017. It’s 8 miles away from the nearest supermarket but the owners had provided a comprehensive supply of toiletries and cupboard essentials including some herbs, cooking oil, margarine, bread, milk, sparking wine and toilet roll. The bedrooms are spacious and lots of space to store clothes. There are two lounges, one roomy kitchen, a twin bedroom and a utility room (with washer and fridge freezer) downstairs, 1 bathroom with loo and separate shower, 1 loo and shower upstairs, along with the rest of the bedrooms. However, the upstairs was very cold, the windows were old and single glazed, and there was condensation on the inside of the windows every morning. One toilet broke on 23rd Dec, and although the owner came to look at it, he wasn’t a plumber and unable to fix it so we had a house-full and only one loo for 5 days until we left. The property is very rural, and down a very muddy drive through a farm, so please be aware that some vehicles might struggle down it. Also, the sat nav was wrong by 0.6 miles and we struggled to find it in the dark. That having said, the owners were pleasant, the property was nicely decorated with Christmas trees and lights, and we had an enjoyable week, and we would go again."
