Mountsorrel is a large Charnwood village in south Leicestershire close to the newly opened Waitrose and Michelin starred Johns House restaurant. There is an impressive range of amenities and facilities on offer within the village including numerous shops, leisure centre, pubs and restaurants.

Since the owners purchased the cottage in 2011 it has undergone an exhaustive and sympathetic restoration process. Just some of the many highlights are the exposed beams to both walls and ceilings, oak bespoke doors and architraves, handmade double glazed windows and luxury fitted kitchen and bathroom. Ideal for a first time buyer or investor as the property is currently let on a rollover basis at £450 pcm.
