General Information: - The sought-after village of Newtown Linford is situated to the north of Leicester within the renowned Charnwood Forest which is well known for its popularity in terms of convenience for ease of access to the afore-mentioned centre of employment, as well as the market towns of Melton Mowbray, Loughborough, Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Coalville, the M1\M69\M42 motorway network for travel north, south and west, and the East Midlands International Airport at Castle Donington.

The combined villages of Newtown Linford, Woodhouse Eaves, Swithland and Anstey offer a fine range of local amenities including shopping for day-to-day needs, schooling for all ages, regular bus services to both Leicester and Loughborough, and a fine range of recreational amenities including the renowned Bradgate Park, and the adjoining Cropston and Swithland Reservoirs.

The Location: - Warren Hill is one of the most desirable residential addresses in north Leicestershire, set within the Charnwood Forest - an outstanding area of rural beauty which surrounds Bradgate Park, from which the property is situated just a stones throw away.

The park is a Leicestershire landmark with its centrepiece being the ruins of Bradgate House, one of the earliest Brick Built Country houses in England and the childhood home of Lady Jane Grey who was Queen of England for just nine days in 1553. The park covers well over 800 acres and offers dramatic rocky outcrops, ancient oaks and is bisected by the River Lin which provides a natural boundary to the Deer sanctuary and leads eventually to Cropston Reservoir and nearby Swithland Woods.

The forest area is situated mainly in the Charnwood district and is classified as an upland tract with much of its elevation being in excess of 600 ft above sea level and contains many scenic parks for walking, golf courses and many equestrian/leisure facilities too.
