Ratby, located 5 miles north-west of Leicester, is centred on St. James' Church dating back to 1230. It boasts excellent commuter links and wide ranging local amenities, all set in a rural location.
Situated just minutes from the M1, there are convenient links to all Midlands cities, and East Midlands airport. Both Leicester, just 15 minutes away by car, and Fosse Park offer extensive shopping, and a regular bus service or park and ride at Meynells Gorse will take you into the city centre. For day-to-day needs, a mini market, shops, newsagent and post office are also on your doorstep.
The village has a primary school, and both secondary and upper schools are a short walk away. For leisure, there are three public houses, and Ratby's sports club has both cricket and football pitches. A network of countryside footpaths surround the village, and nearby woodlands offer relaxing walks.
