Newton Harcourt is a charming hamlet surrounded by some attractive undulating countryside and yet with easy access to Oadby and Leicester City Centre and the popular market town of Market Harborough. The nearby village of Great Glen offers a great selection of amenities and shopping facilities including a Health Centre, Post Office, a primary school, library and public
houses. Leicester has theatres, cinemas, and superb shopping facilities as well as restaurants and bars. Market Harborough is a charming town with a great range of independent shops as well as supermarkets, restaurants, bars and a small local theatre. Mainline rail services operate from both Leicester and Market Harborough with services into London St Pancras International (journey time approx. one hour).

Uppingham and Rugby.
