Visiting The Area

Market Harborough
A shoppers haven. Apart from some of the "majors", Market Harborough has an abundance of exquisite specialist upmarket small shops. The Town Centre, with its mature trees and wide pavements has a very continental feel to it and there are several enticing alleys choc a bloc with more individualistic shops. Several good walkways around the town (all on the flat) and some spectacular gardens and floral displays, especially along the River Welland make this itself a reason to visit the town.

Shopping
Market Harborough itself is excellent for shopping whether you are looking for clothes, house hold items or antique bargains. The market is held on a Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. Surrounding Market Harborough are also lots of quaint villages and small towns with lovely shops, the kind you like to explore and seem to go on forever. The new Highcross shopping centre in Leicester is also easily accessible

Local places of interest

Rutland Water - approximately 20 minutes from the hotel:
This is the largest man-made lake in western Europe. Rutland Water has something for everyone. The attractive 3,100 acre reservoir has an international reputation for providing a balance of sport, leisure and wildlife conservation and offers everyone the opportunity to try something new.

You can try energetic sports such as windsurfing, rock-climbing or canoeing, hire a dinghy, bicycle or fishing boat or just relax by the water and watch the action around the 25 mile shoreline.

Althorp House - approximately 25 minutes from the hotel:
Althorp has been home to the Spencer family for nearly 500 years. It became the focus of world attention following the tragic death of Diana Princess of Wales in September 1997.

Much of Althorp's charm derives from the sheer beauty of its setting. The house is set in 450 acres of idyllic park, much of which has remained unaltered over the past 500 years. The house contains a fascinating variety of furniture and ceramics as well as one of the finest collections of portraiture in the world. There is also an award winning exhibition depicting the life and work of Diana Princess of Wales, showing her Bridal Gown, childhood letters and much of Diana's work for charities

Foxton Locks - approximately 5 minutes from the hotel:
Set in the beautiful Leicestershire countryside Foxton Locks is famous for its flight of 10 staircase locks on The Grand Union Canal, midway between Leicester and Northampton.

Many hundreds of canal boats pass through the locks every year, providing a colourful attraction. Wildlife, flora and fauna thrive in the ideal habitat. The network of footpaths and towpaths provide ideal walking, with a choice of many routes. The locks and surroundings are freely open and accessible to the public all year.

Rockingham Motorspeedway - approximately 15 minutes from the hotel:
Rockingham is a great place to visit whether you are interested in car racing, watching concerts or attending a corporate day and driving the cars yourself.
