About The Orchard

The Orchard is inspired by the fruit farms across the Leicestershire countryside, which have helped to produce wines, fruit cordials, and presses for many years, the most popular of which is Belvoir Farm Elderflower Cordial. 

Our latest development, The Orchard, is ideally suited for all students looking for accommodation that has everything they need. The new apartments are modern and luxurious, with all the amenities needed in the building.

​Make the most of the summertime sunshine with the private outdoor garden exclusive to The Orchard residents. Generous communal areas provide a perfect space to chill with friends, with a large TV and comfortable areas to relax. There are two communal laundry rooms on-site that are available 24/7 and the building has 24-hour CCTV and on-site security overnight.

The Orchard is located on Friar Lane, ideal for students at De Montfort University, it’s only a 3 minute walk to the centre of campus. 

Based in the city centre, all amenities are a short walk from The Orchard  - ideal for anyone looking to experience the city lifestyle. There are a number of supermarkets within walking distance, including international supermarkets on the doorstep. 

Leicester’s top shopping centre is less than a 5-minute walk away, which also has a Showcase Cinema de Lux so you can keep up-to-date with the latest releases. 

The Orchard also sits in the heart of Leicester’s rich historical culture and Roman heritage with museums, galleries and the cathedral only minutes away. Castle Gardens is a popular spot for soaking in the sun, right next to the River Soar, and only a 4-minute walk. 

Public transport is frequent and accessible enabling the surrounding countryside and nearby towns to be visited easily.  Leicester’s Train station is just a 20 minutes walk where there are regular trains to London taking just over an hour.
