Enjoying a picturesque setting in the heart of the National Forest, Donisthorpe enjoys a friendly community feel, with attractive countryside surrounds and charming nearby villages. The expansive woodland, lakes and cycling paths which surround the development are ripe for exploration by residents of any age.

The immediate area is peppered with quaint independent stores, such as a village convenience store and antiques shop, while nearby Swadlincote is home to large supermarkets, an array of high street shops and a multiplex cinema.

As to be expected in the heart of the National Forest, there are a selection of casual eateries nestled in the Leicestershire countryside which cater for relaxed family meal times. Just a five minute walk from Lockharts, residents will find the accredited Halfway House pub and restaurant, boasting a wood-burning fire, a traditional interior and a well-kept beer garden. This hidden gem of a pub features guest ales and a carefully selected wine list to accompany its impressive menu of hearty, home-made meals.

Just 40-minutes away by car is the cosmopolitan city of Leicester, home to impressive shopping centres, an 800-year old market, world-class family attractions and renowned museums and galleries.
