Buying a new build in Derbyshire

A new-build home offers high energy efficiency and a blank canvas that you can truly make your own. Easy to heat in the colder months, a new home reduces your monthly budget, giving you more freedom to explore everything Derbyshire has to offer.

Living in Derbyshire

Home of the Peak District

Right in the centre of England, the famous Peak District National Park – England’s first – has the glorious Derbyshire Dales below it. With so much lovely countryside, it’s easy to see how Derbyshire offers that sought-after life balance.  

Back in the hills, Edale is the starting point for your first steps along England’s longest hiking trail, The Pennine Way.  Dipping down to the east, the scenic waters of the Ladybower Reservoir are Derbyshire’s answer to being an inland county.

City life

Well positioned near to the northern big cities of Manchester and Sheffield, Derbyshire also has its own key locations of industry. The largest city is Derby, and you also have Chesterfield in the North East. 

Plus, to the south of the county you have neighbouring Nottingham and Leicester –  making Derbyshire a good commuter new-home location for the North and East Midlands alike.

Centre of the East Midlands

Towards the east of the county the M1 is shared with Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire – which connects north to South Yorkshire. You also have a wide network of A roads that provide good cross-country routes, plus stunning panoramic views. 

Getting you to London in just over an hour and a half, Derby is the mainline hub for East Midlands Trains. And, of course, you have connections across the county, and to the North and East Midlands.
