Welcome to your home in the East Midlands!Guest access
My air-conditioned, underfloor heated, spacious 2 bedroom loft, is a loving conversion of the standalone Victorian red-brick stable building at my family home, Rectory Farm, which is set in rolling countryside close to Market Harborough (1 hour by train to London).
It has literally just been converted for luxury modern living in Summer 2019 so everything is brand new and sparkling clean.
The space is a large 135 sq metre / 1450 square foot space which welcomes friends and families or work colleagues travelling together. Ideal for those who want a relaxing and luxurious place to stay which is a world apart from the chain hotels and poor quality accommodation otherwise available.
• Amazing Base from which to explore - Rectory farm is conveniently located for Leicester, Market Harborough, Northampton, Rugby, Kettering and Corby.
• 10 minutes drive to Market Harborough for supermarkets, kids soft play, restaurants etc.
• Good dining in village pubs in Clipston, Sibbertoft and more (5 mins).
• 4 mins drive to Kelmarsh Hall if you are coming for an event or a wedding.

o We are always super flexible to try to accommodate late check-out and early check-in subject to other guests arriving or departing whenever we can.
o I host because I love helping people discover the area I grew up in and giving them the chance to experience it the way we do as locals. Neighborhood overview
o I respond quickly via the AirBNB app, Messaging Apps and by phone if you have any questions.
o We will normally be here to welcome you personally when you arrive but I also provide self check-in via your personal door code if you are arriving late or we are not around.
Clipston is just 10 minutes drive from the hustle and bustle of Market Harborough which is directly connected by direct high speed train to Nottingham, Leicester, Luton Airport and London St Pancras and one change to London Gatwick Airport. Getting around
The village offers a traditional English way of life with a good pub serving homemade food, summer fetes, friendly community and access to beautiful walks and countryside pursuits.
We are very close to a plethora of interesting places and things to do including the world famous Foxton Locks and the Grand Union canal, The Soaring Centre (Glider Airport), Welford Children's Farm Park, Pitsford Reservoir (sailing / kayaking / biking), Mini Mischief's Soft play centre and much more.
Check out my guidebook here on Airbnb for suggestions of things to do and great places to eat.
Whilst you can arrive by train and then taxi to the Loft, most people come by car, as we are located about 2 miles from the village in open countryside and we offer secure parking free of charge.
