Welcome to Old Guadaloupe
We are based in the Heart of Leicestershire, England one and a half miles from the historic Market Town of Melton Mowbray. Promoted as the "Rural Capital of Food", Melton Mowbray is perhaps best known for its culinary specialities, being the home of the eponymous pork pie and one of the five homes of Stilton cheese.
Melton Mowbray is bustling with activity on Tuesdays, when both street and cattle markets are held. Everything from clothing and household goods to fresh produce can be purchased. There is a large Saturday street market too, and on Wednesdays a small antique/bric-a-brac market takes place in the town centre.
Melton Country Market takes place every Friday from 9am - 2pm, at the Cattle Market with a range of naturally reared meats, organic vegetables, bread and locally made cakes, preserves and honey. Sunday is the day for car boot sales with around 50 vehicles and 1000 visitors at the Cattle Market.
There are many Towns and Villages of interest in the area along with Rutland Water, Stamford, Nottingham, Leicester, National Space Centre, Belvoir Castle, Twin Lakes for the children and much more. With many village pubs with excellent dinning facilities.
The Farm House and Cottage are provided with a few little essentials including a welcome pack of milk, tea, coffee, sugar and fresh flowers also toiletries. All you need to bring is food, drink and coal for the BBQ or make a selection from Melton Mowbray's excellent local take-away's and yes they deliver.
