Built at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries as a mill-worker's dwelling, Kingfisher Cottage is in the village of Barrow upon Soar, Leicestershire, England. Semi-detached (adjoining another property), it is basically 2 reception, 2 bedroom, and 2 bath, the kitchen and living room having been combined to form a mini great-room. Accommodation is provided for 4 to 6 people, master bedroom having a king size bed, 2nd bedroom two singles. Sitting room offers a double sofa/bed, and living room a small settee/flop-out single bed. We recommend more than 4 guests for weekends only, due to cottage's limitations regarding size and bathroom facilities, though more have stayed for longer at their request with no problem. Fronting quiet Mill Lane it has a substantial lawn and ornamental garden...Built at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries as a mill-worker's dwelling, Kingfisher Cottage is in the village of Barrow upon Soar, Leicestershire, England.

We recommend more than 4 guests for weekends only, due to cottage's limitations regarding size and bathroom facilities, though more have stayed for longer at their request with no problem. Fronting quiet Mill Lane it has a substantial lawn and ornamental garden in the rear backing onto a canal, with a driveway on the free side providing parking for a small car. Located centrally in an area known as the East Midlands it is the ideal jumping off point for touring the country. It is around a two hour drive to such places as central London, Manchester, York, Cambridge, and Oxford to name but a few. Stratford upon Avon is even closer. It is also around a two hour drive from London Heathrow and Manchester Airports. Attractions, both nearby and further afield, can be found in our website www.AnEnglishCottage.com. Shops are a 7 to 10 minute walk away, buses and rail station even closer. Leicester is the closest city, an easy drive10 miles south, with Nottingham being 10 miles north. The university town of Loughborough is 4 miles away. Much more information can be found in www.AnEnglishCottage.com. More
