Luxury bed and breakfast (B&B) in Leicestershire's Charnwood Forest awaits at Horseshoe Cottage Farm, recently converted from old stone farm buildings. It is surrounded by countryside and located in the National Forest, midway between Leicester and Loughborough.

On arrival in Hallgates, near Cropston in Leicesteshire, B&B guests can enjoy tea and delicious Aga baked scones or homemade cakes, served on the terrace or by the inglenook fireplace in the elegant drawing room. Stone flagged floors and large oak beams in many rooms impart a sense of peacefulness and well-being. Traditional antique furniture graces the interior of this luxury B&B accommodation, especially in the pretty en suite guest bedrooms. Individually decorated with quality fabrics and furnishings, they are a haven of relaxation and the ground floor room is ideal for guests less able to climb stairs.

The cottage garden with herbaceous borders, topiary, azalea and heather beds is home to flourishing kitchen gardens and an orchard where hens lay fresh eggs for breakfast - the sort of home fare that Wolsey Lodge B&B guests really appreciate. Fields beyond are laced with footpaths and Bradgate Country Park, with its herds of deer and the ruins of Lady Jane Grey's family home, make a perfect pre-dinner stroll.

Your B&B Hosts

Your hosts at this luxury B&B in Leicestershire are Linda and Tim Jee. Tim, who used to work in the City and Linda, a radiographer and keen gardener, are both well travelled and offer good food, good company and a warm and friendly welcome to their B&B guests. Breakfast is a feast and dinner an occasion - clearly Tim and Linda enjoy good food and entertaining!
