Self catering holiday cottage rentals in Eaton, Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, England

Located in the lovely Vale of Belvoir, the ancient Leicestershire village of Eaton contains a play area for children, a village hall and a Norman church known as Saint Denys, named from the Patron Saint of Paris. Surrounded by fields and pastures, a stay in this appealing village could be an ideal choice for a country cottage break away.


Advice on Cottage Holidays in Eaton, Melton Mowbray

This small village has plenty of charm to offer visitors taking a break here. The 12th century church is made from local ironstone and is admired for both its exterior and interior. The name, Belvoir  means ‘beautiful view’ and families staying in holiday cottages in Eaton are well placed to enjoy activities in the Vale, such as walking, riding, cycling and fishing on the lakes. Historic Belvoir Castle and its gardens come highly recommended for a day out. The castle is home to the Duke of Rutland and it offers an impressive art collection. Look out for any events, which are sometimes organised here, including concerts, game fairs, steam rallies and firework displays.

Nearby Melton Mowbray is a popular market town well worth a visit where visitors like to browse the diverse choice at traditional stalls. Local culinary products have made this area well-known, especially Stilton cheese and pork pies, both of which are bound to be on sale at the Tuesday market. If your self-catering break coincides with the annual Melton Mowbray Food Festival, you’re in for some tasty treats. Past festivals have included cooking demonstrations and rare breed animals. Melton Carnegie Museum offers displays on local history, including information about the pork pie and Stilton cheese production and other local industries. If you walk the Melton Mowbray Heritage Trail, which will take you approximately an hour, you’ll learn more history about the town.

Eaton is Excellent for a Family Cottage Break

Of course, nothing says ‘family holiday’ like a theme park and Twinlakes is a local park packed with action. Whatever your age, you’ll have fun, especially if you like all kinds of rides, including water rides, playing on pirate ships, birds of prey demonstrations and animals to pet.

Families like to go to Burrough Hill Country Park whilst enjoying a cottage holiday for a bit of kite flying and wildlife spotting. This area is well-known locally for its Iron Age hill fort, which is well preserved and of great archaeological and historic interest.

Staying in Eaton, then, brings lots of opportunities for families to spend enjoyable time together. When it comes to finding a convenient base for your break away, choose from rural country cottages, secluded cottages and farm-stays.

Book a Eaton, Melton Mowbray cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Leicestershire on holiday.
