Leek Wootton is a village roughly one mile from Kenilworth and two miles from Warwick. It lies in the triangle created by Kenilworth, Warwick and Leamington Spa.

The War Memorial Recreation Ground is to the north-west of the village and is home to The Village Hall and Leek Wootton Sports Club. "The Rec" as it is known locally is also home to a children's playground. The Leek Wootton Sports Club has formed a recreational cricket team with local members and members from neighbouring villages. Every year there is a fete at the Village Hall with competitions, art and crafts and tea and cake.

There are numerous public footpaths and walks in the village, including the Tink-a-Tank, (so named because people used to use the path to walk to church and think about god and thank him for his blessings), several across the golf courses, a woodland walk between the Coventry Road, which crosses the A46 and comes out at the north end of the village on the Warwick Road, and a small area of woodland to the north west of the village (accessed from Waller Close and the recreation ground).

To the north of Leek Wootton is the Cattle Brook and just north of Hill Wootton this meets the much larger River Avon, which forms the south-eastern boundary of the Parish.

When the Leek Wootton First School was threatened by closure in the early 1990s, the community campaigned to save it and a new school was built at the southern end of the village and All Saints' Church of England Primary School was opened in 1996.
The Warwickshire Golf and Country Club is on the edge of Leek Wootton and has an exclusive members only gym and fitness centre, indoor pools, spa, creche and café and also benefits from an outstanding 36 hole golf course with a separate 9 hole par 3 course and driving range. There are some lovely walks through and around the golf courses.

The Anchor Inn sits at the heart of the village, has a good car park and large beer garden at the rear- it is renowned locally for its Sunday roasts!
Woodcote House, a 19th Century manor house, lies to the western boundary of the village. Once the family home of the Wise family it is now the Headquarters of the Warwickshire Police.

The village is very close to the A46 dual-carriageway and  nearest railway station is Warwick Town with Warwick Parkway just a little further away. The nearest airport is Birmingham Airport (11.7 miles).
