Burton on the Wolds and Walton on the Wolds form part of the Wolds Valley where they are joined by Wymeswold and Willoughby on the Wolds. Together they bridge Leicestershire with Nottinghamshire. Known for pretty village settings, some excellent village schools and great public houses and restaurants.

Surrounded by rolling countryside, each community is thriving with social clubs and activities. Burton on the Wolds enjoys a petrol station with local shop where Wymeswold has the apply named G G Granvilles convenience store (readers of a certain age will remember BBC's Open All Hours).

Hoton and Prestwold sit on the periphery of the Wolds valley and enjoy excellent commuter links to Nottingham, Leicester and Loughborough.
