The Area

Whetstone is a South Leicestershire village in the Blaby district of the county. Conveniently situated close to the A426 approx 5 miles south of Leicester city centre. The village has a good selection of shops, restaurants and public houses along the main street with day to day amenities in the considerably larger neighbouring village of Blaby.
The village is well serviced by a number of primary schools feeding into a number of secondary schools in and around Blaby.


There is a frequent bus service into Leicester and the village enjoys easy access to the motorway network and has a number of local railway stations allowing travel around the country.
The village has grown over the years with several new housing developments but retains the feel of a small village. It remains popular today with local buyers and commuters due in part to the good mix of housing, its ease of access to the city centre and the excellent road and rail links.
