Morcott is a good place to live: a pretty Rutland village of around 155 stone-built cottages and larger houses with a Church, Village Hall , several active clubs and regular social events.
The village is four miles from the market town of Uppingham (via the A47) with easy access to Oakham and Stamford, as well as to the A1.
On the A47 are two petrol stations/garage/repair businesses which also sell newspapers and basic groceries. Morcott Travelodge is now re-branded as a Redwings Lodge on the east-bound carriageway of the A47. Morcott Little Chef has now opened as the independent, locally-owned Country Lounge Coffee Bar.
Morcott has bus links to Uppingham and Stamford: timetables in the bus stop on the High Street. Regular visiting services include a mobile butcher (Saturday mornings), wet fish van (Monday afternoons) and the mobile library (alternate Wednesday mornings).
A heart defibrillator is sited in the redundant red telephone box on the High Street. Morcott has a small number of allotments.
