Cottage Holidays in Loughborough, Leicestershire, England

The market town of Loughborough has many attractions, events and lots to offer for families staying in holiday cottages in the local area. It has all the amenities you’d expect of a modern university town, but it also celebrates its past. This is illustrated in the Market Place where a bronze statue known as the Sock is quite a landmark. The sculpture was commissioned to celebrate Loughborough’s significance in the hosiery industry.


Advice on Cottage Holidays in Loughborough

One of the town’s main attractions to discover whilst on a self-catering break is conveniently located in the centre. Queens Park has long been a green oasis for Loughborough residents and visitors, where you can enjoy concerts at the bandstand, a bowling green and birds on display at the aviaries. Kids love the play area and the Swan Maze. The Carillon and War Memorial contains a museum dedicated to World War I and World War II exhibits. Queens Park also contains Charnwood Museum, where displays on local history, geology and industries make for a fascinating visit. Children will love the Victorian grocer’s shop and the volcanic rocks collection.

There’s so much to do on a Loughborough Family Break

Every kid loves a ride on a steam train and the Great Central Railway is no ordinary heritage railway. Based at Loughborough Central Station, it is the only main line railway of its kind to operate in the UK using a double track. So, you may well have the experience of seeing a steam train on the opposite track to the one you’re travelling on! If you want to travel from Loughborough to Leicester, you can get a five-course meal from the First Class Restaurant. For even more luxury, being a passenger on the Great Central Pullman evokes the glory days of the Orient Express. If being a train driver is the stuff of your dreams, the Drive a Locomotive Experience is just the ticket. Other special events organised by the railway include steam galas, Santa Specials and Wartime Weekends. If your family likes to walk in lovely countryside whilst on holiday, footpaths form routes round the line. You can see the walks in a guide, obtainable from the station shop.

If you want to book tickets for a family night out, Loughborough Town Hall is a concert venue where you can see comedy, musicals, children’s shows and various other forms of entertainment.

This is just a taste of what staying in Loughborough has to offer for cottage holidays. You can combine all of the activities found in a town with discovering the Leicestershire countryside and you’ll probably plan a repeat visit for things you missed!

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