Nearby Bingham is a small thriving market town having an extensive range of amenities/professional services and high grade schooling for all age ranges.  The main amenities are grouped around a traditional market square, with the focal point of the Old Buttercross and a small shopping precinct in Eaton Place where there is also a health centre and a library.  Bingham has thriving primary/junior schooling and Toot Hill School offers a high standard of secondary education, with a successful sports/leisure centre close to hand.  From Bingham, there is a direct rail link into Nottingham to the west and into Grantham to the east, the latter having access to the Al road network and a fast direct rail service into London Kings Cross.

The village lies within the local catchment of a highly rated primary school (with a nursery/pre-school) in the neighbouring village of Flintham, also home of the Boot and Shoe inn. Independent junior schooling is also available at Highfields in Newark and there is a local bus service to the girls and boys grammar schools in Grantham and the Nottingham High Schools.
