Hickling is an unspoilt rural village on the edge of the Vale of Belvoir having extensive amenities close to hand in the thriving market town of Melton Mowbray and in West Bridgford.
The village has a good community spirit centred on the village hall, the parish church, a traditional village inn and a really well stocked farm shop on the edge of the village.
Melton Mowbray which has earned the accolade of the "Rural Capital of Food" being the home of the pork pie and one of the five homes of Stilton Cheese, offers an extensive range of amenities in a thriving market town environment.
In turn, the regional centres of Nottingham and Leicester can be readily accessed from the village, as can the M1/A1 motorway networks, the East Midlands Airport and the Kings Cross rail service from Grantham.
