Close to open countryside, the development benefits from an exceptionally strategic location less than a quarter of a mile from the A6, bringing Loughborough within around seven minutes’ drive, with the A6004 providing an alternative, more direct route to Loughborough University campus. The centre ofLeicester is approximately 25 minutes away by road, and frequent bus services between Leicester and Loughborough stop close to the development, while trains from nearby Barrow upon Soar railway station run to Leicester, Nottingham, Lincoln and Grimsby Town. East Midlands Airport
is 20 minutes’ drive away.
A convenient Co-op 600 yards from the development complements the assortment of local retailers and services around Quorn’s traditional High Street. In addition to a small supermarket, a post office and a pharmacy, there are hairdressers, gift shops and other specialists, and a wide selection of restaurants, pubs and cafés. There is an Aldi store in nearby Woodthorpe, around a mile away, with a Tesco Extra a little further on, and Mountsorell, to the south, has a large Waitrose supermarket.
Health services in Quorn include a medical centre, a dentist and an optician, and the local community supports a wide variety of activities and amenities including a library, an amateur drama group, a ukulele orchestra and several youth organisations. The village’s many parks, lakes and riverside walks include Springfield Lake near the development, and the popular Stafford Orchard with its play area, sensory garden, sculptures and performance area.
Loughborough, three miles away, greatly extends the choice of both shops and leisure amenities with a lively mix of high street names, market stalls, bars and restaurants, theatres, cinemas and museums to create an endlessly fascinating environment for shopping and relaxing. Charnwood Forest Golf Club is the nearest of several courses around the village, and the more unusual options for days and evenings out include Stonehurst Family Farm, with its pony rides and motor museum.
Quorn’s primary and secondary schools are both within around ten minutes walk of the development. St Bartholomew’s C of E Primary, set in natural green surroundings, features a dedicated music studio, and secondary and sixth form education is provided by Rawlins C of E Academy.
Both schools have strong community links, and both are rated Good overall by Ofsted, with St Bartholomew’s assessed as Outstanding for its personal development and early years provision, and Rawlins Academy recognised as Outstanding for its 16 to 19 study programmes.
