Welcome to Costock Village
Costock is situated in the south of the Borough on the A60 Loughborough Road. The village is situated in an elevated position in the Nottinghamshire Wolds Character Area and is surrounded by arable and pasture land. The neighbouring village of East Leake is situated less than a mile to the west along Leake Road while just over a mile to the south along the A60, lies the village of Rempstone.
Costock’s historic core, bounded by Church Lane and Chapel Lane is very picturesque and has a genuine village feel with winding and secluded lanes, trees and high walls.
The church and Manor House stand close together, the latter being one of the most charming Elizabethan stone houses in Nottinghamshire. The church of St Giles on the other hand, has undergone major restoration in 1688, 1848 and 1862, though some of the original 14th century masonry, both internal and external, still remains.
