  • What would you pay for this rural Leicestershire-based property, ideal for the small-time horse owner with a couple of steeds?

    Corner Farm can be found in the village of Newton Burgoland which is in some of the prettiest Leicestershire countryside. It is located midway between the market towns of Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Market Bosworth.

    Newton Burgoland is well placed for access to the M42 and M1. Birmingham, Leicester, Nottingham, Derby and East Midlands International Airport are therefore all within easy reach.
