Littlethorpe is a small village in rural Leicestershire that is just 7 miles from the bustling city of Leicester, home to a number of shopping districts, museums, theatres and two Premiership winning sports teams. Our new build homes in Littlethorpe provide a rural retreat for first-time buyers and families, with a number of golf courses within driving distance of The Croft.
Owing to the size of the village, Littlethorpe has a small number of shops, including a village store and several pubs, the neighbouring village of Narborough has larger supermarkets for the weekly shop and is less than half a mile from The Croft. In nearby Leicester you’ll find a larger selection of shopping centres, including the bustling Highcross shopping centre and the largest outdoor covered market in Europe. On the outskirts you find the popular Fosse Park Shopping Centre, which has a variety of high street stores.
Things to do
Enjoy a pint and a game of darts or skittles in one of Littlethorpe’s village pubs, while in neighbouring Narborough you’ll find an Elizabethan manor house and a number of leisure facilities. The city of Leicester has plenty to explore, including old cathedrals, Belvoir Castle and the Richard III Visitor Centre for a taste of history. Why not blast off and explore at the National Space Centre or take a leisurely walk through the many parks and botanical gardens the city has to offer. Sports fans can get their kicks in Leicester, with two Premiership-winning teams to watch on matchday, or why not take in the spectacle of a T20 cricket match at the Grace Road pavilion.
The nearest train station is in the town of Narborough, less than half a mile away, with hourly services to Leicester and Birmingham. Littlethorpe is just over 3 miles from Junction 21 of the M1, which provides access to many major cities in the East Midlands, including Leicester, Nottingham and Sheffield, as well as London, while the nearest airports can be found in Birmingham and East Midlands.
