Village life

Sitting on the outskirts of Coalville, just 12 miles from Leicester, this popular village offers a slice of tranquil village life while sitting in close proximity to an array of amenities. Enjoy a good pub lunch at The Station or The Robin Hood or head to Chilli N Spice for an amazing curry (so good in fact that Westlife had one flown to their show in Manchester. No we’re not joking!)

Kids will love the working windmill at Hough Mill and there’s endless rambling opportunities across the beautiful countryside right from your doorstep.

Well connected

Swannington lies within easy access to the A511 between junction 22 of the M1 motorway and the A42 dual carriageway, linking with the M42 South-West towards Birmingham. The area is well served with further road links to Leicester, Derby and Nottingham, and connects to East Midlands Parkway Railway Station and Nottingham East Midlands Airport with ease. The village itself lies between Coalville and Ashby-de-la-Zouch which both offer a range of brilliant independent shops, facilities and amenities.
