Cottages to rent for self-catering breaks in Leicester, Leicestershire, England

Being a city, Leicester is not an obvious choice for a country cottage break.  However, for those keen to discover just what this city has to offer, it may be possible to rent a rural retreat, a barn conversion or a farm cottage within easy reach of the city.


What Leicester offers for Cottage Breaks

Fascinating attractions that Leicester has to offer include:

  • King Richard III Visitor Centre – visit to learn more about the life, death and discovery of the remains of King Richard III in Leicester.
  • The Roman Jewry Wall - this is large segment of Roman wall with two archways that stood next to what was once a Roman Bath House.
  • Leicester Cathedral – a large historical cathedral with a fascinating history dating back some 900 years.
  • National Space Centre – this award winning visitor attraction is home to Britain's biggest planetarium, as well as interactive galleries and a 42 metre high Rocket Tower.


For days out, Rutland Water in nearby Rutland is a great place where you can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, as well as time by the waterside and is within an hour’s drive of Leicester.

Also within an hour’s drive of Leicester is Draycote Water, another popular area with a visitor centre, walking, cycling, bird watching, as well as watersports and fishing by arrangement.

For a self-catering holiday with plenty of facilities including restaurants and shops nearby, as well as fascinating visitor attractions, Leicester could be a great choice.

Book a Leicester cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Leicestershire on holiday.
