The Old Tractor Shed
“A perfect place for a romantic break in rural Leicestershire.” - AA Inspector
Our Inspector's view
The Old Tractor Shed is a boutique lodge on a working farm with panoramic views from its perch high on a re-wilded gravel pit. Nature lovers will enjoy the opportunity to observe kestrels and buzzards in their natural habitats, while history buffs will appreciate the annual Battle of Bosworth and the area's links to Richard III. The shed has a fully enclosed garden with hot tub, fire pit, barbecue and outdoor seating including an egg chair for maximum guest enjoyment. Inside is a sitting room, kitchen diner and a fully equipped kitchen.

About the area
The sparkle of sunlight on a gentle river as it meanders through beautiful countryside; the reflections of sailing boats on a lake; relaxing with a pint in the garden of an old English pub in a picturesque village; brightly coloured narrow boats making their way through a flight of lock gates; the imposing silhouette of an historic castle. These are the scenes that make Warwickshire a delight.
There may be few seriously high hills in this fertile plain, but it is an area full of attractive walking in rolling countryside, blessed with a fascinating history and wonderful places and buildings to visit. This is Shakespeare’s county, and the footprint of the famous Bard appears almost everywhere. He was born and brought up around the beautiful Warwickshire town of Stratford-upon-Avon, and many of his plays draw upon his own experiences in the area.
Warwickshire has a history that embraces the Civil War, castles and large country houses are scattered over the county. Warwick Castle is the home of the Earl of Warwick, Kenilworth Castle was a stronghold for lords and kings of England in the 11th and 12th centuries, and so the list goes on.
