Local Area Guide

Tudor Cottage is a situated in the centre of Stoney Stanton on Carey Hill Road and is conveniently placed for all local amenities with the school, doctor’s surgery, post office, local shops, sports ground and pubs/restaurants all within walking distance. The UK’s National Diving Centre, Stoney Cove is a short walk from Tudor Cottage and there is a friendly bar and restaurant overlooking the lake.

Stoney Stanton is a large village in the Blaby district of Leicestershire, England with a population of over 3,454 in 2001. It constitutes a civil parish. The village lies some five miles east of Hinckley, just to the east of the M69. Nearby villages include Croft, and Sapcote and it is some ten miles from Leicester. As may be gathered from its name it is set on rocky outcrops of igneous rock, granodiorite, a fact which has had its influence on its history. Even in the eighteenth century, Parish records show that gravel and stone were being removed from Carey (or quarry) Hill in the centre of the village. That would later, in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries be quarried for its valuable stone, along with Lanes Hill (now the water-sports & diving centre known as Stoney Cove), Clint Hill, and Hall's Court. Carey Hill and Hall's Court quarries were later filled in but Clint Hill remains, a relic of the village's industrial heritage, now filled with water and a haven for wild-life.

There are many walks on the doorstep, including a link to the Leicestershire Round and for woodland walkers nearby are Freeholt, Burbage and Sheepy Woods make the perfect place for an afternoon stroll. For the convenience of modern day living, Stoney Stanton is conveniently located close to an excellent commuter road network including the M69 and M1, making some of the region’s major towns and cities easily accessible.
