“Barkestone-le-Vale is a quiet, picturesque village nestled at the heart of the stunning Vale of Belvoir. The village is very welcoming with a strong sense of community and it has been a joy to live here for the past sixteen years.
Marshall Farm Close is set off one of the quietest lanes in the village. Our garden is peaceful and private, perfect for watching the numerous garden birds and soaring swifts while enjoying a cup of tea, BBQ, or maybe an early evening gin and tonic.
The house itself is a large family home with a very spacious feel and generously sized bedrooms, it always feels light and airy in the summer, with a real sense of connection with the outdoors. In winter the sitting room is warm and cosy, especially with a few logs blazing on the fire.
A few minutes’ walk from our front door, past the Church and down Jericho Lane, you will find yourself on the banks of the Grantham canal, designated a “Site of Special Scientific Interest” and home to an abundance of wildlife including foxes, muntjac, dragonflies, warblers and families of resident swans.
The village also has easy access to miles of countryside footpaths in every direction, including Belvoir Castle and The Engine Yard, with its array of local and artisan shops and café.
On Rutland Square, in the heart of the village, is the Chequers Village Hub (previously a pub but now owned by the village) which hosts regular pub nights, quizzes, coffee mornings and social events.
While the village itself is set away from the hustle and bustle, you are only a few minutes’ drive to the large and well served village of Bottesford, or Bingham with all the facilities you would expect from a small market town.
The A52 gives easy commuter access to both Grantham and Nottingham, with their excellent rail and road links, as well as top class shopping and fine dining.
In summary, this has been a wonderful home and I hope its next occupants will be very happy here!”
