Our barn conversion, set in the idyllic village of Packington, is a special place to stay. The large luxury double and adjoining children's room are full of character for individuals, couples or a family to enjoy. We have a large selection of children's equipment available making us an ideal base for a family stay. Within the village and neighbouring historic town of Ashby de la Zouch there are various cafes, restaurants and shops. Further afield are numerous attractions for everyone to enjoy.
“Julie and Charlie are both very welcoming hosts and the fresh fruit and wide range of choice all made for a substantial breakfast. The West wing is really like a private area with large double bedroom, great looking children’s room and spotless bathroom. Lovely garden area looking out from the breakfast room too. We went to the local pub (Bull & Lion) with family and the meal there was good with generous portions and accommodating staff with particular food requests.”
The cottage is in walking distance of Ashby de la Zouch and has many country walks right on the door step. It is conveniently located 5 mins from the A42 and 20 Mins from the M1 making it accessible for East Midlands Airport and Donnington Park. It is an easy commute to Birmingham, Leicester, Nottingham, Warwickshire and Tamworth. It is also convenient for Alton Towers, Conkers, Battle of Bosworth, Twycross Zoo, Cloud bike trail and Hicks Lodge, Calke Abbey and other National Trust properties.
“Carla was an amazing host! Brilliant communications and the property was truly breathtaking, it has so much character and instantly makes you feel at home. Just left to the property is a nice small local run convenience store which has everything you need and at the bottom of the road is a cozy little pub which serves amazing food! We were so sad to leave! You definitely don't be disappointed :)”
A large room set in the grounds of a stately home. A peaceful tranquil setting. You will have the top floor all to yourself with your own en-suite.
“Our stay was very pleasant. Very warm, comfortable room in a superb location. Hosts were brilliant and even offered to drop us into Swadlincote when we were stuck for transport. Highly recommend this property.”
