Melton Villages & the Wreake Valley

It seems we’re not the only ones who think that Melton Mowbray and the surrounding villages are a fantastic place to live. In 2020 the Times placed Melton in the top 10 places to live in the UK.

Melton Mowbray is a busy market town also known as the ‘Rural Capital of food and is traditionally famous for its Pork pies and Stilton Cheese. Additionally, it offers an array of restaurants, quirky local independent shops, and unique events such as food festivals and our famous cattle market. As well as the busy town activities, Melton Mowbray has some notable historic buildings such as the impressive 12th-century Church of St.Mary. Once described as ‘one of the finest parish churches in Leicestershire’, it features a 100ft spire rising over the town. 

As a leading Estate and Letting Agent in and around Melton Mowbray, we find that Melton is extremely popular with anyone seeking good access to major road links (A1 and M1), East Midlands Airport, Nottingham and the mainline train stations of either Grantham or Market Harborough. 

The villages within the Wreake Valley are renowned for being unspoilt with their country walks and popular pubs and for ease of commuting to  Leicester and Loughborough whilst  schooling options at Ratcliffe and Loughborough Endowed schools are firm favourites.

Not your average Estate Agents

But what makes Moores Estate Agents different? We like to think it’s a combination of a few things, with our family-oriented, independent business model leading the way. We believe we offer each and every customer a personal touch, we really take the time to get to know you and discuss in detail what your needs and wants are for your future home. It’s crucial that any Estate Agents or Letting Agents know the area that they are selling properties in. With Melton Mowbray, we have years of experience within the area and even a local specialist, Jenny, in the section below.
