Have a Super Time on a Cottage Holiday in Scalford: The charming village of Scalford is surrounded by farmlands and lies four miles from the attractive market town of Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire.

About Scalford for Cottage Holidays

Within the village itself, the parish church is unique in that it’s the only church in England to be named after St. Eglewin. The village retains a strong sense of community and there is a local pub, the Kings Arms, along with a post office where you can pick up some basic essentials for your cottage holiday.

For those who like to stay active and go on long walks whilst on a self-catering holiday, there are plenty of routes to follow. The village is located on the Jubilee Way, a popular footpath that lasts for 20 miles. If you prefer to cycle, it’s a great area for that too, with several roads away from heavy traffic.

People of all ages love a theme park and nearby Twinlakes is a terrific day out. A mix of land-based and water-based rides, themed play and animals will keep everyone entertained. If the kids like playing at pirates, the Buccaneers Island Zone is a hoot. Donkeys, meerkats, Highland cattle and various farm animals are a big hit with the little ones. You can also go sledging, tackle an assault course or get wet in the bump boats. At the Gauntlet Falconry Centre, you’ll see displays of peregrine falcons and a golden eagle.

Being so near to the town of Melton Mowbray means there are lots of amenities on tap when taking a cottage break in Scalford. Famous for its pork pies and Stilton cheese, tasting the local produce at cafes and pubs is a special treat and you can take something home from the twice weekly Farmers Market.

If you’re into antiques, the Antiques Fair runs once a week. The Regal Cinema is an independent Art Deco cinema from the 1930s, which reopened earlier in 2013 after a refurbishment and it’s a splendid venue to go see a movie with the family. Golfers on holiday can have a game at Melton Mowbray Golf Club. This 18-hole, par-70 course and driving range welcomes visitors of all abilities. Melton Carnegie Museum celebrates the history of the town and the local area through different periods, including the Romans, Tudors and Victorians. As well as the permanent displays, an interesting programme of temporary exhibitions offers further information on local history. The museum also organises activities for adults and children.

For walks, bike rides and picnics, Melton Mowbray Country Park is well worth a visit. With over 137 acres of green space to discover along with a community cafe and children’s play areas, a day out here is sure to be a top choice for families. What’s more, entrance is free.

Staying in Scalford offers town attractions, shopping and country pursuits to suit everyone’s interests, so it’s the best of all worlds. Whether you are interested in family cottages, romantic retreats or even large country houses, Country Cottages Online features an excellent collection of holiday homes to choose from.

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