Property details

A charming two bedroomed Grade II listed stone fronted and thatched cottage of character overlooking the churchyard within an historic part of the picturesque Welland Valley village of Hallaton surrounded by some of south-east Leicestershire's most attractive open countryside.

The beautifully refurbished interior retains a wealth of period features, and includes an attractive sitting room with inglenook fireplace having a cast iron multi fuel burner with oak fronted cabinets to side, dining area with exposed stone work and beamed ceiling, open plan to a superbly appointed breakfast kitchen area with built-in appliances and breakfast bar, rear lobby/utility area, and an extended and refitted bathroom with shower over the bath. Off the first floor landing with window overlooking the churchyard and braced & latched doors, are two double bedrooms each with stunning oak beams.

Outside, there is an enclosed landscaped courtyard garden approached via a cobbled path, wooden decked patio with gravelled and paved areas, shrub beds, timber garden shed and brick store.

This cottage has undergone an extensive and sympathetic refurbishment, including: in 2017 full re-thatch of the roof and installation of a thatched dormer to the rear bedroom; a rear extension to the ground floor; new boiler; full electrical re-wiring; complete remodelling and installation of a new kitchen and bathroom; new hardwood double glazed windows and Velux windows to the rear; new English white oak bannisters and cupboards; and mostly new internal doors.


The picturesque village of Hallaton is located in the heart of the highly desirable Welland Valley area, and has a strong local community supporting a primary school, two public houses, village hall, museum and a sports ground on the edge of the village with tennis courts, cricket, rugby and football pitches, together with a children’s play area. The nearby thriving towns of Market Harborough and Uppingham offer excellent shopping and amenities, and Market Harborough has mainline rail services to London St Pancras in about an hour.
