The area is famed for its country pub, The Martin's Arms, which has won Nottinghamshire's Dining Pub of the Year five years in a row.

Colston Bassett is also home to the Grade-I listed ruin of St Mary's Church, and the Shropshire and blue cheeses.

According to Rightmove, house prices in the village have risen by 345% over the last year and are currently 37% up on the 2011 peak of £1,450,000.

In its story, the Telegraph said: "Colston Bassett Stilton, arguably the king of British blue cheese, hails from this village in the Vale of Belvoir.

"It is foodie country with the award-winning pub the Martin’s Arms in the village, a short drive to Perkins Bar & Bistro and England cricketer Stuart Broad’s pub Tap & Run.

"There’s even a local spa called The Little Day Retreat."
