The two main doctor surgeries that serve Wilnecote are Wilnecote Health Centre, situated on Smithy Lane, and Parson Street Surgery, found on Parson Street, with the local pharmacy located opposite. Although Wilnecote does not have its own dentist, nearby ones include Stonydelph Dental Practice situated on Ellerbeck, and Dosthill Valley Dental Practice, found off Cadogan Road in Dosthill. There are rumours that one is on its way however.

There are several takeaways located in and around Wilnecote as well as a few small local convenience stores, hairdressers, barbers and salons. Morrison’s Supermarket and the Co-op can be found in the Wilnecote area too. In addition, the Co-op houses a large post office.

If you fancy a drink, there are a few good local pubs too. As our owner lives in Wilnecote, I'm sure he can give you a breakdown!!

The houses that can be found here, range from 1 bedroomed flats, all the way up to large detached properties, and prices can vary from around as little as £80,000 right up to a handful of properties that will fetch £500,000+.
