What has Wymeswold got to offer?
Wymeswold is a highly sought after village offering superb transport links due to its location situated at the northern boundary of Leicestershire, conveniently mid-way between the cities of Nottingham and Leicester. The village offers a wide range of amenities including local village shops, pharmacy, sports club and a highly regarded Primary School. There is an active social life with the newly refurbished The Three Crowns pub ran by The Cat and Wickets Pub Co as well as The Windmill Inn and the Hammer & Pincers pub proving very popular amongst the locals .
There are many clubs and societies within the village, including WHO (Wymeswold Historical Organisation), Guide and Scout groups, dancing and aerobics, karate classes, bowls, cricket, cycling, and football clubs. At the southern edge of the village, the ‘Washdyke’ recreational area contains play equipment, a BMX track, football pitch, and a community orchard.
Wymeswold holds a number of very successful and family friendly events every year, such as the famous Duck Race (mid May), the Open Gardens (mid June) and the Washstock music festival. Wymeswold Running Club also organises the ‘Waddle’, a 5-mile road race on closed roads, to take place on the same day as the Duck Race.
Our favourite places to go:
Known for their food The Hammer & Pincers Owners Sandra & Danny Jimminson were trained at the Savoy Hotel in London and pride themselves in sourcing some of the finest local ingredients, everything is made in house from their selection of daily freshly baked breads, puddings and even accompaniments. Don’t miss the family beer garden and cookery demonstrations too.
The Windmill Inn is a good old fashioned village pub with a contemporary feel. It’s dog friend and also has a beer garden. The menu is all about British pub grub with a few modern twist, wash it all down with a real ale on offer. You may have visited their sister pub The Curzon Arms in Woodhouse Eaves.
Last but certainly not least is the newly reopened The Three Crowns pub ran by The Cat and Wickets Pub Company founded by dream team Dan Cramp, Stuart Broad and Harry Gurney (yes, that’s correct). This friendly village local features open fires, a beamed ceiling in the bar and a split-level cosy snug/lounge. Guest beers are sourced from local breweries including Castle Rock, Belvoir and Nottingham. A good range of snacks and main meals are available lunchtimes and Thursday to Saturday evenings. There is a great function room available for hire and don’t miss the skittle alley and newly installed pizza oven, yummy.
