Easy travel with the M1

As well as plenty of local amenities including smaller local shops, retail parks and larger supermarkets, you’ve got big-city shopping with Nottingham an easy distance away. Eastwood also enjoys an abundance of outdoor facilities and parks, including a skate park, adventure play area, cricket ground and a sports pavilion. 

For education opportunities, there are five primary schools for you to choose from (depending on your catchment area): Brookhill Leys, Greasley Beauvale, Lynncroft, The Priory Catholic Primary School and Springbank. There’s also Hall Park Academy for secondary school tuition.

Epic days out in nature
