Morcott – an ancient settlement named in the Domesday survey – is a good place to live today: a pretty Rutland village of 150 or so stone-built cottages and larger houses, with a Church, Village Hall, several active clubs and occasional 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 has bus links to Uppingham and Stamford: timetables in the bus stop on the High Street. Visiting services include a wet fish van and the mobile library.
A heart defibrillator is sited in the redundant red telephone box on the High Street. Morcott has a small number of allotments.
