North West Leicestershire is at the heart of The National Forest and home to East Midlands Airport with easy links to the major road network.
The National Forest area covers 200 square miles across the counties of Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire. Over eight million trees have already been planted, more than trebling woodland cover, creating new habitats for wildlife and a beautiful landscape for everyone to enjoy.
No multi-purpose forest on this scale has been created in the UK for one thousand years. The National Forest provides environmental, social and economic benefits, including landscape enhancement, creation of new wildlife habitats and major new access and leisure opportunities. The Woodland Trust flagship Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Wood near Ravenstone, is planted with 200,000 trees.
There's lots to see and do in the area - lots of heritage to explore including Ashby de la Zouch Castle, great places to eat, fun activities for the family at Conkers Discovery Centre and a spa when you need to relax. There's so much you'll need to book a short break.
Stay at a B&B, hotel or take a more leisure pace at a self catering cottage, or get back to nature on a campsite.
