Our stunning new development Garendon Park is situated just outside the historic and bustling market town of Loughborough. With a superb range of amenities nearby, great leisure and entertainment facilities, and speedy transport links across the Midlands, it's a great all-rounder with much to offer a range of buyers.
Loughborough is one of a key group of towns in Leicestershire. Leicester, Loughborough, Nottingham, and Derby all enjoy the benefit of having the M1 close at hand. This great connection means that you'll be in a great location to get out and about whether you're heading for town life or country life. Leicester is a very rural county, despite having some large towns keeping it busy, and there are some lovely places to visit from Garendon Park. Rutland Water, Calke Abbey, and walks along the River Soar closer to home, will become firm favourites for family outings.
Charnwood Golf and Leisure Complex is just a mile and a half away, next to Loughborough Rugby Football Club, and Dishley Pool nature reserve for those who prefer a peaceful walk. There are a number of scenic walking trails surrounding the development, including those at historic Stonebow Bridge, and less than a mile away, Jubilee Park and Play Area provides a great place to take children. If you fancy a longer walk, Outwoods Nature Reserve, Beacon Hill Country Park and Bradgate Park are all beautiful place to explore, within a half-hour drive of Garendon Park.
The proposal for the development itself includes a new primary school, community hub and sports hall, plus parks and a play facility. There's also a wide choice of schools for all ages in and around Loughborough, including several rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted. Older children can attend one of the local colleges, such as Loughborough College or Charnwood College, and for further education there's Loughborough University, which holds the prestigious title of the best university in the world for sports-related subjects for the fifth year running.
Charming Loughborough has the feel of a small city, with a bustling centre, plenty of shopping and a buzzing nightlife. A short drive will take you to the heart of the town and the numerous independent shops, high street brands and eateries that reside there. Carillon Court and the surrounding shopping streets have everything you need for a spree, and every Thursday and Saturday you can visit the market, where over 100 stalls sell fresh local produce. Take a break from shopping by relaxing in Queen's Park and Garden, or unwind with a trip to the cinema or one of the many excellent bars.
Loughborough enjoys an unbeatable location for commuters, sitting near the M1 and A6, meaning Nottingham, Leicester, Derby, Birmingham and Coventry are all less than an hour's drive away. Loughborough train station is 3 miles from the development and offers fast services to nearby centres, including a 1-hour 15-minute route to London. If you fancy venturing beyond UK cities, East Midlands Airport is just a 12-minute drive from Garendon Park.
