Stone Lodge House is situated in some of Leicestershire’s finest undulating countryside on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Tilton on the Hill. The village benefits from local amenities including a popular public house, village shop, village hall and petrol station.

A more comprehensive range of amenities can be found in the nearby City of Leicester (13 miles) and market towns of Oakham (7 miles), Market Harborough (12 miles) and Uppingham (5 miles).

These all benefit from a more extensive range of mainstream stores and supermarkets, recreational and leisure facilities.

There are primary schools located in the nearby villages of Billesdon and Tugby. There are also well-known public schools at Oakham, Uppingham, Oundle, Stamford and Leicester. Preparatory schools within commutable distance include Stoneygate at Great Glenn, Maidwell Hall and Spratton Hall.

For the commuter, the property is located a little over 2 miles away from the A47. There is also a direct rail service to London St Pancras International from Market Harborough which takes approximately one hour in duration.
