Coalville is an ex-mining town in the county of Leicestershire. It is a traditional market town with a mix of small, independent shops. Situated just 30 to 40 minutes from Leicester city centre, it is a popular place for families and commuters working in Leicester and Nottingham. There is an abundance of industry in the vicinity, including an Amazon distribution hub and Pall-Ex Distribution, owned by former Dragon from Dragon’s Den; Hilary Devey.
Ashby de la Zouch, twinned with Pithiviers in France, is an affluent town just 5 minutes away from Coalville and is a popular place to go to for bars and restaurants. Why not book a table at the popular Zamani’s Restaurant on Rushton Yard Market Street for some delicious Italian food and then wash it down with some real ale at The Tap at No. 76, a micropub on Market Street. If you would like something a little more extravagant; a champagne breakfast, canapes, tapas or cocktails then you ought to head to The Vine Restaurant and Cocktail Bar. They have an impressive menu and something for all tastes.
Families relocating to the town should note, there are a variety of very good mainstream state schools in and around Coalville. Newbridge High School on Forest Road, Belvoirdale Community Primary School on Scotlands Road and Hugglescote Community Primary School on Ashburton Road. In terms of further education, Stephenson College, also in Coalville, is well respected and has partnered with the likes of Volvo Trucks UK, Renault Trucks UK and Sanctuary Housing.
The area has a mix of houses from local authority properties, terraced houses and new builds. Typically, a 4 bed detached house would sell anywhere between £180,000 and £300,000 depending on the location and finish of the property.
Locally, there is a good rental market and often traditional terraced housing is affordable for investors wanting to add to their portfolio. Generally, 3 bedroom properties can be let for around £595pcm.
