Location, Location, Location - Derbyshire
England’s central counties benefit from excellent transport links, vibrant towns and cities and beautiful countryside. The heart of Derbyshire showcases the best of Britain and here at Miller Homes we have a number of exclusive developments across the region.
It’s no secret that we’re renowned for seeking out the most desirable locations and our two latest developments in Derbyshire are helping continue that tradition. Langley Country Park and Somersgate are perfectly placed for both commuting and leisure, and they now host our new homes.
Somergate is situated in the historic picturesque village of Repton, between Burton-on-Trent and Derby and features a choice of attractive three and four bedroom homes. It has excellent road and rail links, is within 10 minutes’ walk of amenities including pubs and shops and is a short drive from East Midlands Airport.
House hunters looking for the perfect place to put down roots, might also want to consider our Langley Country Park development. Just three miles from the city of Derby, the site’s selection of new homes are edged by mature woodland and open farmland.
A carefully planned neighbourhood of superb contemporary, energy-efficient two, three, four and five bedroom homes, Langley Country Park offers a wonderful sense of country living, served by excellent access to walks and cycling routes.
Both new developments are conveniently located for visiting the many interesting and varied towns and cities that the East Midlands has to offer.
Derbyshire nestles at the very heart of the region and is home to the Peak District National Park and all its splendour. Lofty rolling hills sit alongside lush green valleys and pretty towns and villages that keep pleasure seekers returning time after time.
The peaks of Mam Tor and Kinder Scout are very popular tourist destinations, along with the towns of Bakewell and Buxton. Thousands of visitors from across the UK and abroad are drawn to the Duke of Devonshire’s stately home Chatsworth House. Its gilded gold facade, internal treasures and expansive gardens are steeped in history.
Many other Derbyshire properties, parks and gardens are opened to the public by the National Trust. Calke Abbey, Hardwick Hall, High Peak Estate, Ilam Park, Kedleston Hall, Longshaw Estate near Hathersage, and Sudbury Hall on the Staffordshire border all welcome Trust members.
If engineering interests you more, the National Tramway Museum at Crich, Peak Rail steam railway, Midland Railway, and the cable cars above Heights of Abraham at Matlock Bath might make for a great day out.
In the north of the county, three large reservoirs, Howden, Derwent and Ladybower, and the surrounding moorland attracts walkers, cyclists and fishermen alike.
Alongside all the natural beauty, both Somersgate and Langley Country Park are just a stone’s throw from Derby’s thriving city centre. With a whole host of restaurants and bars to choose from, the city’s iconic Cathedral Quarter offers something for everyone.
