The village is surrounded by beautiful countryside, providing ample opportunities for outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling and boat rides along the tranquil Ashby-de-la-Zouch canal. It is also home to the historic St Margaret’s Church, which dates back to the 12th century and is a must-see for history buffs. It’s also known for the Battle of Bosworth Field, which took place nearby in 1485 and played a crucial role in the War of the Roses.
