Cattows Farm is situated in the heart of the National Forest in rural North West Leicestershire. With easy access to the M1 and A42 motorways and all major cities in the East and West Midlands it’s easy to see why Cattows Farm is becoming a highly sought after venue.

The farms elevated position gives stunning panoramic views over open countryside – not to mention fabulous sunsets. We also have some beautiful historic churches just a few miles from the farm.

As evening falls over the stunning Leicestershire countryside, you and your guests will get to experience one of our breath taking sunsets. The sun gives way to a beautiful sky full of stars, providing the ultimate backdrop to a perfect evening party.
