Colston Bassett is a remarkable Conservation village set in unspoilt countryside to the south east of Nottingham combining the advantages of country living with direct access into the main regional centres of Nottingham and Leicester, with extensive amenities and high grade schooling close to hand in the surrounding market towns of Bingham, Melton Mowbray and Loughborough.
In turn, the location of the village close to the Leicestershire border gives convenient access to the A1 and M1 motorway networks and from Grantham Northgate station there is a fast direct rail service into London Kings Cross in a scheduled journey time of around one hour (+) and the East Midlands International Airport is some twenty miles or so to the south of Colston Bassett.
The village is characterised by fine brick and pantile farmhouses, cottages and barns, which together with the surrounding parkland and wooded lanes form an intrinsic part of the timeless character of Colston Bassett, which having seen only limited residential development over the last fifty years has retained its appealing traditional ‘English village’ feel and strong community spirit.
Willett Homes, a local respected family business is close to the completion of two new detached houses of a high calibre which are ‘tucked away’ along a shared private drive accessed from Church Gate on the eastern edge of the village, enjoying a far reaching aspect across open countryside to the Belvoir Hills on the horizon.
