PACKINGTON
Packington village is located approximately one mile due south of the thriving market town of Ashby de la Zouch, offering a range of local amenities and facilities, together with excellent road links via the A42 dual carriageway to East Midland conurbations beyond and the M1 motorway corridor. Packington village boasts a Church of England Primary School with 'Good' OFSTED rating, local village store, public house and a new dog friendly café, together with a recently rebuilt village hall located at the heart of the village.

Packington is well served with footpaths to the recently formed Jubilee Woods and established woodland of the National Forest.
SYDE HOUSE HISTORY
Originally a tenanted part of Henry Lord Hastings estate, believed to have been built Circa 1648 using recycled materials from the slighted Ashby Castle. The house and land formed a small holding of around 6 acres.

Ashby Road at this time had several of these small holdings along its eastern boundary. Syde House is the only survivor and therefore Grade II listed. Much of the stone found in the building, on site and within Packington is believed to have come from the castle.

The house stayed in estate hands until approximately 1900 when it was sold to the Poxon family (see early photo) and has changed hands a further 3 times in the last century or so.

The present owners have a keen interest in historical buildings and have carefully restored and maintained Syde House over the last 8 years. In 2018 they ensured trouble free maintenance for future purchasers by reroofing the thatch with a new reed finish.
