Featured in the 1086 Doomsday book,

Coton-in-the-Elms is a small village of approximately 800 inhabitants. In the past this has been a coal mining community.

The church of Saint Mary erected in 1846 lies at the north west of the village. The small village shop is across the road from the church.

The cottage is close to the village green where there are pretty flower beds and the Pessal Brook where ducks are to be found.

The Black Horse is a popular and welcoming real ale pub at this end of the village across the brook.

We are in the heart of the "National Forest" where 200 square miles are being transformed, blending ancient woodland with new planting to create a new national forest.

From one of the country's least wooded regions, the ambitious goal for The National Forest is to increase woodland cover to about a third of all the land within its boundary. Around 8 million trees have been planted since 1991, making large swathes of countryside more accessible for local people and visitors who are finding a host of attractions and activities and a beautiful landscape to enjoy.
