Willesley Close is one of the finest addresses within Ashby and is situated off Willesley Road. Lying on the fringes of the town centre enjoying the best of both worlds with the countryside of the National Forest, Hicks Lodge and a golf club on your doorstep and the convenience of the town centre only minutes away.
Embrace the lifestyle that living in the historic market town of Ashby offers, being able to walk into town along the many walks and pathways to a bustling high street filled with coffee shops, boutiques, restaurants and bars is one of its many joys. The famous butchers, Taylors, has queues around the block at the weekends, and who can say no to a pizza and cocktail at Zamanis or a trip to The Tap at No 76 on an evening. A walk through the Bath Grounds is always pleasant, whatever the time of year; in the Summer the thwack of Willow on Leather can be heard here on Sunday afternoon and is a popular event for a family picnic. All this, more and of course the wonderful historic Ashby de la Zouch Castle.
Strategically, Ashby is perfectly positioned for the busy commuter, with access via the M42 and M1 to many East and West Midlands towns and cities.
