Considering the price we paid there are a few things that could be improved here. We arrived an hour early at 3 pm although we knew the room was not supposed to be available till 4pm. It was a freezing cold day so sat around in our coats.until the fire was lit around the dreaded 4pm "I will bring you...

My boyfriend and I stayed here on Christmas eve. Our hosts were kind enough to open for us even though they were in the middle of their family celebrations, and they went to so much trouble. On arrival we were greeted with tea, mince pies and Christmas cake by the log fire, and they got a Christmas-tree shaped brioche for...

It was a pleasure and we thank you for your lovely review. We try to make every stay special whether it is for leisure or business but Christmas time is so nice to spoil guests just that little bit more. We wish you both a very happy and healthy new year and hope to see you again soon.

Horseshoe Cottage Farm is a rural sanctuary located on the edge of Bradgate Park, an 850-acre estate, in Charnwood Forest, Leicestershire. The guest rooms in a beautifully renovated stable are well appointed and we enjoyed the sitting room with Inglenook fireplace and large Christmas tree. We were offered a choice of four hot breakfast options - go for the perfect...

Again it was a pleasure to have you to stay and we look forward to your next visit to see your family. Come in the spring and find time to visit NT Stoneywell Cottage just 10 minutes away, a joy at anytime of year but wonderful when the daffodils are out.

My partner and I attended a family wedding at a nearby hotel. I had never stayed in a B& B before and am very fussy so my partner had his work cut out from the start - the boy did good though as Horseshoe Cottage Farm ticks all the boxes.

A lovely wedding night in a large comfortable room with large bathroom and bath tub. This bed and breakfast is secluded with great parking facilities and has lots of original farmhouse character.
