This charming village is home to some picture postcard property.   Close to the independent school, Ratcliffe College and the nearby village Ratcliffe on the Wreak. Cossington enjoys the best of countryside living with excellent walks but also one of the closest Charnwood villages to Leicester city centre.

After a brisk walk around Cossington Meadows or along the river soar, there is nothing better than a meet up with friends at The Royal Oak public house. If you enjoy your gardening Derrys nurseries and Goscote nurseries are well worth a visit.
