Living Here - "The Paddocks is a wonderful place to raise a family and for entertaining, particularly the open kitchen and living room which provide an ideal space for cooking and socialising alike. The dining hall is especially welcoming, complete with a roaring fire, having seated sixteen guests on many an occasion. The purpose built home office came into its own during lock down and it's great to have the flexibility of having two living rooms and very generous bedrooms. The Paddocks is set in half an acre and has west facing private and peaceful gardens where we have enjoyed camping out in the copse, watching wildlife, enjoying fantastic sunsets, growing our own vegetables and collecting eggs from our hens. The gardens are so pretty during the summer, especially when the roses are at their best. Kimcote is a picturesque village in the heart of the South Leicestershire countryside, with an incredibly welcoming community and an active social calendar."
