The village is situated in 21 acres of beautifully well maintained landscaped gardens in the heart of rural Leicestershire. Purpose designed and built in 1986 for the over 55s and comprises 123 one or two bedroom bungalows and flats, managed by Wards Surveyors of Hinckley.

There is a frequent bus service into the City of Leicester as well as Coalville and Loughborough. Markfield itself has a new Co-operative supermarket and is well supplied with local shops, pubs, restaurants, hairdressers, post office and GP Medical Centre.

The village benefits by being surrounded by accessible countryside and if walking is your favourite occupation there are a variety of public footpaths including the Leicestershire Round, many Conservation areas and the famous historic Bradgate Park nearby.

There is a social centre with many monthly events, and every day activities such as short mat bowls, snooker, keep fit, Tai Chi, line dancing and a very popular coffee bar which is licensed for events and the ever popular monthly midweek and Sunday lunches.
