Billesdon is an exceptionally popular village surrounded by some of east Leicestershire's most attractive open countryside, lying some 11 miles north of the thriving town of Market Harborough, and some 9 miles east of the city of Leicester, both of which have mainline rail services to London St Pancras. Part of the popularity of Billesdon is its wonderful village amenities including a doctors surgery, village store, post office, community centre, sporting and leisure opportunities, fine parish church and two public houses. There is a well regarded primary school, with private schooling located in Oakham, Uppingham, Stamford and Oundle. The village is renowned for its excellent community spirit, and there are numerous walks along footpaths around the village, with Rutland Water a short drive away.
