I am coming to Leicestershire for 2 weeks of work at the end of June / beginning of July. I will be travelling all over the county but will not be in the city of Leicester. I wondered if anyone knows of a good area I could base myself in for the two weeks? I usually do airbnb so I can have my own independence in terms of coming and going as well as eating. I really don't know anything about the area and don't know anyone who can advise me! Aside from work, I like plenty of options for going out for a nice meal, opportunities for walking / activities as well as a nearby gym and shopping. I like to get out and about and enjoy / get to know the areas I stay in! Also, if possible, I would like to be in an area that I can access the rest of the county fairly easily!
Any advice, greatly appreciated :)
