Appleby Magna parish includes the two villages of Appleby Magna and the smaller Appleby Parva. Appleby Magna is ideally suited for discovering the countryside of Leicestershire. However, you can also visit attractions in the bordering counties of Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Derbyshire when you take a cottage break here. A cottage holiday in or close to Appleby Magna can provide the best of rural and urban activities and is very handy for the M42.


What Appleby Magna offers for Cottage Breaks

As well as pubs and places to get provisions for your break away, there is a large church, much admired for its beauty. St. Michael and All Angels’ Church which has its origins in the 14th century and with its tall, elegant spire is a local landmark. The centre of the village is a designated conservation area because of its large number of outstanding buildings, the most well-known of which is Moat House. This private dwelling (and its moat) is a Scheduled Ancient Monument, in fact.

If you want the facilities of a town, Appleby Magna is close to Ashby de la Zouch, famous as the setting of Sir Walter Scott’s story, Ivanhoe. For a bigger town, Tamworth is just eight miles away. Ashby de la Zouch is an ancient market town and its castle is a great day out for the family. Ashby Castle was originally a manor house in the 12th century and was deemed a castle by the 15th century. Today’s visitors can take a guided audio tour and enjoy climbing to the top of the tower for tremendous views or navigating through the underground passage created in the Civil War.

Appleby Magna is Magnificent for Family Holidays

Families enjoying a self-catering break in Appleby Magna can also visit Conkers Visitor Centre, situated within the National Forest. It offers lots of adventure for kids whatever the weather is up to. Its Discovery and Waterside Centres contain a forest adventure play area and a simulated walk through the tree tops. You need a head for heights! More than 120 acres of woodland, gardens and lakes give plenty of space to roam, plus there is a viewing tower, a train and an assault course. The covered amphitheatre hosts musical performances plus other family oriented events and you can shop in the retail area and see the work on show at the art gallery.

Appleby Magna is in an agricultural area and the countryside is described as “gently rolling”. Holidaymakers here enjoy walking on the many quiet footpaths, going for cycle rides and horse riding. Make the most of your stay and get close to the landscape with a country cottage break. Choose from rural retreat cottages and secluded cottages for your Leicestershire getaway.

Whether you choose to book a holiday cottage in Appleby Magna, an apartment, a lodge or another type of self-catering holiday accommodation, we hope you have your best holiday yet in Leicestershire.
