Bell Cottage is a beautiful country home situated within the Leicestershire countryside accessed from Ashby Road, Coleorton.

Coleorton is a Parish with a substantial heritage having been built around the amalgamation of a number of Country Estates. Bell Cottage was the site of a C18th Coaching Inn known as The Bell Hotel. The original property’s character has been maintained with exposed beams throughout and large inglenook fireplaces. The present owners added a timber framed extension, providing a contemporary feel.

This beautiful home is made exceptional by the extensive gardens and grounds which include a 2 acre ornamental lake, woodlands and gardens with the total property area extending to approximately 9 acres. The Lake known locally as the Fish Pond formed part of the local landed Estate. To the side of the Lake is a Grade II Listed Bridge built in the 1800’s and constructed from locally quarried sandstone (The Ashby Road runs over the Bridge).

In the Parish there are a good range of services including a Post Office on Lower Moor Road and a Public House, The George Inn, on the Loughborough Road.

Schooling is excellent in the area. There are a number of exceptional private schools which are a draw for this area including Grace Dieu, Repton and Twycross. The closest 3 primary Schools include Viscount Beaumont’s Church of England Primary School in Coleorton, Griffydam Primary School, and Newbold Church of England Primary School. At the time of writing all of these 3 Schools were rated Ofsted Good. The closest secondary State School is the well regarded Ashby School with an Ofsted rating at the time of writing of Good.

Extensive shopping and Dining facilities can be found in the nearby Town of Ashby de la Zouch and further afield Loughborough, Derby and Leicester.
