Chilcote lies close to the borders of Derbyshire (to the north), Staffordshire (to the west), and Warwickshire (to the south). Roads from the village only lead to Derbyshire and Warwickshire. It is therefore not possible to travel by road from Chilcote to any other part of Leicestershire without first leaving the county.
