Location

The ancient, historic town of Ashby de la Zouch (with its famous 15th century castle) almost certainly dates to Roman times. Later, in the early 19th century it became a spa town. Many of the Georgian style buildings that you now see were built to accommodate visitors to the Baths. Today, Ashby de la Zouch is a thriving and bustling town within the National Forest and enjoys a wide range of good shops, excellent schooling, pubs, churches and local amenities and having recently been named the Best town in Leicestershire. The nearby M42 motorway gives easy access to the M1 and M6 and many other Midland towns and cities. The town is also convenient for East Midlands Airport (15 mins) and Birmingham Airport (30 mins).
