About the property

Cottage in Redmile, Leicestershire, Nr. Nottinghamhsire, England, UK - Great Walking And Cycling From The Doorstep

Willow Cottage is located in the heart of the pretty village of Redmile in the beautiful Vale of Belvoir - just 20 minutes from Nottingham. Outside eating area and BBQ. We think the best thing about the cottage is having a beautiful rural location with canal-side walking under the shade of the iconic weeping Willow tree, alongside the convenience of village amenities, being just a few steps from The Windmill, one of the best pubs in the Vale of Belvoir. Historic village location, just 2 miles from Belvoir castle. Excellent access to walking and cycling from the doorstep. Close to well-equipped village playground.

Lovely short break

  • 5 of 5

Willow Cottage was a great accommodation find when planning a recent long weekend away to visit family. The property was well decorated & furnished, with good facilities & a well equipped kitchen. Thoughtful extras were available for use, such as an iPhone/iPod mini docking station, hair straighteners etc. Everything was nicely presented, clean & tidy, and welcoming provisions of eggs, milk, cake & bread were a sight for sore eyes after a long day spent on motorways! Pretty courtyard garden, with a nice canal walk literally on the doorstep, and situated in a quiet & attractive village. Although our stay wasn't for the purpose of sightseeing, the cottage is well situated for places such as Nottingham. I'd definitely recommend this as a good value, good quality, well located property!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive and helpful review. The property enjoys the perfect combination of being in countryside, yet close enough to nearby towns not to feel isolated. We do hope you'll come back to stay at Willow Cottage again soon.
