Billesdon is an active village surrounded by Leicestershire rolling countryside.

On the edge of the village is the thriving community hall, The Coplow centre offering a great mix of clubs and events including sports facilities and a small concert hall.

Market Harborough is about 11 miles away and from here there are direct trains to London St Pancras taking just under one hour.
