Ulverscroft is a hamlet in Charnwood Forest in Leicestershire, a mile from Markfield.

Ulverscroft Priory, set in a hidden valley, is now a ruin. It was an Augustinian priory, founded in 1134. The prior's lodgings are now incorporated into a farmhouse.

Three cottages in Ulverscroft were built by the Leicester architect and furniture designer Ernest Gimson between 1897 and 1908.

There is a moated site nearby.
