Mountsorrel village is situated between the River Soar and the rocky crags of Charnwood Forest. The village grew in between rock and river with the communication links of canal, rail and road. The village today consists of ancient buildings, inns, boatyards and housing.
An ideal way to see the beauty of Mountsorrel is to take the delightful village trail. Notable landmarks include The Butter Market, erected In 1793 to protect stallholders from the weather and to replace the original medieval market cross which is now sited at Swithland. Castle Hill is a registered Ancient Monument. The site includes a War Memorial commemorating the fallen in both World Wars and is the site of a former castle.
Stonehurst Farm & Museum has more to offer than the average farm park, housing a blacksmiths forge, vintage car museum, a natural foods and gift shop, tea room with homemade cakes and hands on experiences on the farm. It is also home to Johns House, Leicestershire's only Michelin Star restaurant.
