Flat 2 Bishops House is a converted former hunting lodge, situated in the village of Great Bowden, which lies on the edge of the Welland Valley in the Harborough District of Leicestershire and has a history dating back to Anglo Saxon times. It is situated within a conservation area 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.
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 the popular pub, 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.
The train station is in walking distance and offers access to London St Pancras from 55 minutes, making the area an excellent location for those wishing to travel regularly to London for leisure or work purposes. Communication links are excellent with the A14, M1 and M6 all within easy distance, providing access to London and Birmingham, whilst the A6 leads to Leicester and A508 to Northampton.
