Boothorpe enjoys a most tranquil position, located approximately 1 mile from the sought after village of Blackfordby, which lies 2 miles from the market town of Ashby - de- la - Zouch. Boothorpe is a small cluster of houses situated on a no through road, with a real community spirit. A convenient location, for ease of access to both Ashby and Burton on Trent town centres, with ease of access to the M42, M1, A50 and A38, linking in perfectly major towns and cities at Derby, Nottingham, Leicester, Coventry, and Birmingham, together with East Midland's & Birmingham's International Airports.

Blackfordby is a small village that lies approximately a mile North West of Ashby de la Zouch. A footpath connects the two which takes approximately 25 minutes to walk.

The village boasts an award winning village hall and two public houses. It has a small park which is well kept and donated to the villagers in 1894.

There has been a "settlement by the black ford" since the 9th century when the Danes sailed up the River Trent and occupied much of this area. It is mentioned in the Leicestershire survey of 1125 and there has almost certainly been a church in Blackfordby since the 11th century.
