Situated in the village of Great Bowden, which lies on the edge of the Welland Valley in the Harborough District of Leicestershire, with a history dating back to Anglo Saxon times and surrounded by beautiful countryside. Combining the delights of a thriving community spirit and a stunning location, it is little wonder that the village has an enviable reputation as a highly desirable place to live.
FACILITIES & SCHOOLING
At the heart of the village are three unique village greens, fringed by lovely homes, the village Church, Bowden Stores and Welton’s providing a local Post Office, delicatessen and café. The village also boasts two popular pubs, The Red Lion and The Shoulder of Mutton; the Ofsted rated Outstanding Great Bowden Academy and Bowden Pre School, located in the Village Hall. For sporting enthusiasts, it is the home of Great Bowden Cricket Club and Market Harborough Tennis Club.
Despite its rural setting, Great Bowden is very accessible. The market town of Market Harborough is just under a mile away and offers a more comprehensive range of schools, shops, restaurants and recreational facilities.
Transportation links are excellent, with Great Bowden being within easy reach of Market Harborough Train Station, where London St. Pancras can be reached with direct trains from 55 minutes.
