Walton Thorns Farm Holiday Cottages


Self Catering Holiday Cottages

Our three, four star holiday cottages, converted from the former courtyard dairy, hay barn and stables next to the farmhouse on our farm near Six Hills. We look to provide a relaxing environment for guests seeking self catering accommodation in Leicestershire.

With woodland views and rolling fields on the doorstep each cottage has a separate furnished patio to relax, watch the wildlife and allow you to enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside. Wi-fi is available in all cottages but can be turned off in your cottage if requested.

Due to our cottages' peaceful rural courtyard setting alongside the farmhouse and working family farm we are not able to cater for guests looking for a party venue. Sorry we do not accept pets.
