Well located

With the M1 just to the west of Nottingham, the A46 is another important route that quickly connects you with Leicester and Lincoln. Mansfield and the historic market town (complete with castle) of Newark-on-Trent are also within easy reach. 

For convenient rail travel, you can catch a train from nearby Hucknall and Bulwell, there are regular bus services into Nottingham. For journeys across the UK, Nottingham train station is served by East Midlands, CrossCountry and Northern railways. The East Midlands Airport is less than an hour away by car – so with a new home in Calverton you really do have all the benefits of modern life on your doorstep.

Best of both

In the centre of the village you have everything you need for day-to-day amenities. And Nottingham city centre is also close by providing you with large well-known retailers and independent shops, plus history, culture, leisure and entertainment for all ages. For growing families, the village has four ‘good’ schools – both primary and secondary – and of course, nearby Nottingham has a wealth of education opportunities right up to university level.  

Days out in rural bliss

South of Nottingham you have the River Trent – the third-longest river in the UK – that offers miles of walks along riverside footpaths. Just over half an hour away by car,  Holme Pierrepont Country Park, the home of The National Water Sports Centre, is also a perfect day out for all the family. 

For extra adventure, the Peak District National Park is under an hour’s drive, plus you can stop off in the quaint towns of Bakewell, Buxton or Chapel-en-le-Frith on the way.
