What Market Harborough offers for Cottage Breaks

If you admire old buildings, look out for the former grammar school and its unusual wooden stilts. The parish church of Saint Dionysius, with origins in the 1300s, is worth a look too. As for markets, the Market Hall hosts a regular indoor market. However, a major refurbishment is scheduled to take place and the hall will be closed from January 2014 until work is completed. Farmers Markets also take place once a month in both Market Harborough and nearby Lutterworth, selling the best of local produce, so you can stock up on all the supplies you need for your cottage holiday.

If you enjoy staying active on holiday, Harborough Leisure Centre offers excellent facilities, including a fitness studio, swimming pool, indoor tennis courts, indoor bowls hall and children’s courses. Nearby Lutterworth also has a sports centre.

If your family prefers to stay active in the outdoors, you can join one of the Weekend Wanderer Walks whilst on your cottage break. Lasting between two and four hours, they are proper country walks involving crossing the fields and getting close to the scenery. They are free and you don’t have to book; just check on the meeting point and follow your volunteer leader. For waterside walks close by, Foxton Locks offers lovely walks with a slice of Victorian history on the Grand Union Canal. Watch the boats make their way through the elaborate system of locks.

Wistow Maize Maze is a full day out for all the family to enjoy whilst on a self-catering holiday. The kids can let off steam trying to find their way out of the natural crop maze and there’s a quiz trail to follow too plus bridges ten feet high and viewing towers. Each year, the maze has a new design based on a new theme. Past themes have included Harry Potter, space travel and Ancient Egypt! It only lasts for eight weeks, so don’t miss out. Little ones might prefer the challenge of the mini mazes in the Activity Funyard, where you’ll also find table-top activities and puzzles. Other kids’ activities include a football shooting game, space hoppers and bean bag throwing competitions.

As you can see, there is plenty of variety to be had when staying in this area and it’s ideal for an active family break. Country Cottages Online feature a great selection of family cottages whereas those with pets may want to browse through dog-friendly cottages.

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