Why not come and take a closer look?
Location The village of Cosby is a vibrant, well stocked community in south west Leicestershire. The babbling brook running through the centre of the village lends a picturesque and quintessentially British charm, as well as being the venue of the famous annual duck race.
Close to Leicester city centre and Fosse Park Shopping, yet with its own array of amenities and independent shops, cafes and restaurants you have the best of both worlds.
There is a primary school and independent day school in the village, and plenty of sporting clubs and facilities including Cosby Golf Course, Saffron Dynamo FC and Cosby United FC.
The village also stages the annual Victory Show - the largest World War II commemoration show of its kind in the UK.
For the commuter there is access to rail at nearby Narborough and also Rugby as well as access to major road networks, M1, M69 and M6.
All in all Cosby is a great place for a family to live.
What first attracted you to this home
It was a new build so we wanted a house that was going to take little maintenance and had the 10 year NHBC guarantee. The village is amazing and is well located for travelling to all the amenities and road and rail networks that we need.
What have you loved most about living here
First and foremost is was where our family grew and with the other residents in the street, with similar families it has been great living there. The village has many things going on from duck races, to celebrations and activities. The amenities are great with the shops, coffee shops, park and the brook which is pretty to walk around. And fields are really close by for getting out to the country. The main thing though is the friendliness of the street. There is a large social element, even to the point of annual celebrations and street BBQ's (when we were allowed to and weren't locked down)
What will you miss the most about living here
The street and the residents, the village itself and the friendships that we have made. It has been such a friendly place that has a real sense of community.
