Read more about Upper Rectory Farm Cottages

Set amid the rolling cornfields of Leicestershire’s idyllic countryside, award- winning Upper Rectory Farm Cottages provide the perfect setting for holidays, short breaks, special occasions and corporate retreats.
The converted barns sit around three pretty courtyards, surrounded by cornfields. We’ve sympathetically restored the original granaries, cowsheds, dairies and stabling to preserve the character of our working arable farm and tastefully converted the interiors of our Leicestershire holiday cottages to include every home comfort from home made flapjacks to free wifi.

We have cottages with one, two three and four bedrooms and the unique design means we can interconnect several of the cottages to create cosy retreats for romantic weekends, multi-roomed cottages for extended family and friends reunions or comfortable communal spaces with private sleeping arrangements for mid-week corporate away-days. We can interconnect our three largest self catering cottages around one of the courtyards to form one large country retreat for parties of up to 22.

Each of our luxury cottages has an open plan lounge, country-style kitchen and dining area. Exposed brick, rustic slate and plenty of original oak beams and floors retain the working farm authenticity of our comfortable interiors while beautiful fabrics from the likes of Osborne & Little and Designers Guild ramp up the refined rural chic. To help everyone feel at home on the farm, our decor is contemporary country style with natural materials and pale walls providing the backdrop for graceful soft furnishing and elegant accessories.
Every cottage has a comfortable lounge area with flatscreen TV and Freeview box, DVD and free Wi-Fi. Bedrooms each have one double or two twin beds with cosy duvets, crisp white linen and snuggly throws, and all have en suite facilities.
French windows lead onto a patio in the shared courtyard or lawned area with panoramic views across the cornfields.
Contemporary garden furniture ... and skylarks…. complete the perfect picture!

We have 2 miles of private roads to stroll along between the wheatfields or you may like to explore the miles and miles of woodland walks in The National Forest  on our doorstep! From zoos to stream trains, from National Trust properties to big theme parks, from the National Memorial Arboretum to Bosworth Battlefield - you'll find something for everyone in this undiscovered corner of England!
