Snarestone, a small village in North-West Leicestershire, is situated near the borders of four counties - Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Warwickshire and Staffordshire. It is within easy reach of Ashby de la Zouch, Donisthorpe, Swadlincote, Coalville, Ibstock, Market Bosworth, Hinckley and Atherstone, and students both current and past have come from all of these places.

Snarestone is just down the road from the village of Appleby Magna - hence name Appleby Languages. The first courses were held in Appleby Magna, and the name just stuck.
