For more extensive amenities, nearby Kibworth provides a range of shops and cafes, together with more extensive day to day facilities including doctors’ surgeries, dentists, a supermarket, and sports clubs including tennis, golf, bowls, and cricket. Market Harborough, to the south, has a Waitrose as well as superb shopping with independent boutiques, a theatre, bars, and restaurants. Oadby, to the north, boasts M&S food, and independent shopping.


There is a wide selection of state and independent schooling in the area including preparatory school Stoneygate (Great Glen) and notable private secondary schooling options at Leicester Grammar School (Great Glen) and Leicester High School.


Transportation links are excellent, with both Market Harborough and Leicester train stations in easy driving distance, providing a regular service to London St. Pancras (from 55 minutes from MH) whilst Rugby station is also accessible offering services to London Euston in 48 minutes. The M1 and the M6 are a short distance away, providing access to London and airports as well as Birmingham and East Midlands airports.
