Planning your perfect Staycation in the Heart of England

Picturesque rolling countryside to explore, thriving cities, a fascinating history and some world class culture – these are the reasons why you need to discover the Heart of England and Sketchley Grange is the perfect base.


There is something for everyone from Theme parks and Activity breaks to walks in the stunning countryside, bike trails beside the canals and country houses and gardens to explore – plus of course easy access to Birmingham, Coventry and Leicester for the culture and entertainment scene.


Sometimes we forget just how much there is to explore in our own backyard, but with your weekend or short break here at Sketchley Grange you’ll have the ideal base to re-discover the history, heritage and beauty of the countryside.


Historic Houses & Castles

If it’s castles you’re looking for then we have some of the best for you to enjoy. Warwick Castle is a top class visitor attraction and a fabulous visit and Belvoir Castle you have probably already seen – it is a favourite filming location including the Da Vinci Code and The Crown.


Museums & Art Galleries

This area is rich with history, you just need to choose your century, from the Bosworth Battlefield in 1485 to the Coventry Transport Museum celebrating the rich heritage of car manufacturing in the 20th, and of course still continuing into the 21st century.

Theme Parks and Days Out

There are some great family days out nearby including the world renowned Twycross Zoo for the exotic animals and Stonehurst Family farm for the more domesticated ones – a sure fire hit with the kids…until, that is, you tell them about the National Space Centre and the giant rockets!


Shopping & Retail

For a spot of retail therapy during your staycation why not head for the Bullring in Birmingham and the famous Selfridges store there, or a little closer by there is High Cross and Fosse Park for some quick impulse purchases or mementos of your break…

Activity Breaks

For something a bit more active, why not bring the bikes and you can explore the myriad of cycle routes in Hinckley and around the surrounding countryside, or pack your trunks and splash about at Bosworth Water Park! 

Gardens, Parks & Walks

This is a glorious part of the country for rambling and we are blessed with some superb country parks and delightful gardens to visit – you are sure to pick up some great ideas for your own garden, maybe even a plant or two to bring home.

Why not take a picnic?

To make things easier we can put together a picnic lunch for you to take on your travels, just ask at reception for more details.
