A footbridge over the River Nene and public footpath provides access from Water Newton on foot, an attractive walk, to the villages of Ailsworth and Castor with their public house restaurants, village shop, primary school and facilities.

The Georgian market towns of Oundle and Stamford, and the Cathedral City of Peterborough, provide a good range of shopping, services and leisure facilities. Peterborough has direct trains to London Kings Cross from approximately 51 minutes.

The area is well served by public and state schools in Stamford, Peterborough, Oakham, Uppingham and Oundle. Sailing and fishing can be found at nearby Rutland Water. There are golf courses at Elton Furze, Luffenham Heath and Burghley Park.
