Horninghold is a quintessential English village nestled on the Leicestershire/Rutland borders, completely unspoilt by virtue of its conservation village status, all surrounded by delightful rolling countryside. Houses in the village are the result of complete or partial rebuilding by the Hardcastle's of Blaston Hall. The Hardcastle's set out to create a model 'garden' village, planted with a great variety of trees and ornamental shrubs, with properties being made of local ironstone.
Located only two miles from Hallaton and served by the market towns of Uppingham, a 'Cotswold style' delightful market town located approximately four and a half miles away, Oakham and Market Harborough; the latter providing mainline railway access into London St. Pancras in under an hour and by road via Road access to London can be either from A1 or M1. The regional centre of Leicester offers a wide range of facilities usually associated with a large city centre, with the surrounding villages offering well-respected schools in the state sector with an abundance of private schools at Oakham, Uppingham, Stamford and Oundle within a reasonable commute.
