The village of Horninghold lies seven miles north-east of Market Harborough in the county of Leicestershire.

The village is over a thousand years old and following the Norman Conquest in 1066 the village was given to Robert de Todeni, Lord of Belvoir. In about 1076 he gave the parish to the priory of Belvoir where it remained until the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the 16th Century. At the beginning of the 20th Century the Hardcastle family remodeled the village into what is acknowledged today as the 'Prettiest village in Leicestershire'.
