This week’s village in the spotlight is the ever popular East Leake. The villages fantastic amenities and location means its popularity with families and those wishing to slow down the pace of life and retire continues to build.
Why is East Leake so popular?
The popular village of East Leake in the Rushcliffe district of Nottinghamshire offers an excellent range of local facilities and amenities including primary and upper schools, library, medical centre, five active churches and a range of shops and pubs. There are several play areas, outdoor sports facilities and allotments and Rushcliffe Golf Club lies just to the north of the village. East Leake is also home to Manor Farm Animal Centre which has become Rushcliffes first licensed zoo. The village is well known for its community spirit, is surrounded by charming countryside yet also affords easy access to Loughborough, Nottingham and the M1 motorway.
What do our staff love about East Leake?
Jeanette Newcombe, Sales Negotiator at the East Leake branch, who has worked for John German for over 10 years and lived in East Leake all of her life is the perfect person to comment. “People want to live in East Leake for the schools; we have a great pre-school, infant schools (Lantern Lane Primary School and Brookside Primary School) and secondary school (East Leake Acadamy) and also fantastic nursery facilities at Manor Farm and Honey Bee. Plus, the village offers other fantastic facilities, this is why I think the houses sell so quickly. People stay here and either upsize or downsize, but we also have a lot of people from outside who come to live here and that’s down to the reputation of the village and what we have to offer.”
