Redmile/Vale of Belvoir

Redmile makes the perfect base for exploring the counties of Leicestershire, Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire. There’s plenty going on all year round, from sports quizzes at The Peacock Inn to theatre productions in St Peter’s Church. It’s also the perfect place to experience some of the great events regularly held at Belvoir Castle.

The village is a great base for extensive walking & cycling with canal-side paths starting right from the back door, as well as cross-country walks to Belvoir castle & trails which weave the length & breadth of the vale.

The village is lucky to have two great pubs/restaurants in the village, both serve food seven days a week (check this) and even do takeaway fish & chips!

The kids will appreciate the huge play fort and slide in the local park, which is only a few short steps from the cottage.
