A Great Place to Live
If you are looking for affordable property, a relaxed lifestyle, great outdoor leisure experiences, interesting and varied retailers alongside myths, legends and heritage then North Nottinghamshire has something for you.
There’s a wide choice of housing from upmarket developments to country cottages, apartments to established family estates at prices that offer great value. With friendly and welcoming communities it’s a safe place to live, bring up your family and a place to truly call home.
Stroll amongst trees and wide open grasslands at one of the many award winning country parks, cycle, run or walk alongside the Chesterfield canal or simply enjoy a movie at Worksop’s modern multiplex. There are three leisure centres, numerous golf courses, riding schools, private health clubs and spas that all contribute to the happy, healthy lifestyle that is synonymous with North Nottinghamshire. The Peak District is a short drive away as is Sheffield and its Meadowhall shopping centre while the heritage cities of Lincoln and Nottingham are within easy reach.
With many independent traders, national brands, farmers’ markets, antiques markets and out of town shopping there’s a retail leisure experience to suit all tastes. There is a developing food focus in our area with local producers such as cheese production with the traditional raw milk English blue cheese Stichelton, or the brewing of local craft beers by the Springhead Micro Brewery.
North Nottinghamshire has an enviable high standard of education with 49 diverse and easily accessible primary schools and 6 secondary schools all with Academy status.
