Buses between Uttoxeter and Derby via Ashbourne town centre pass along Wyaston Road, adjacent to Oaklands Park, approximately once an hour, with the trip into Derby taking around 40 minutes. Trains from Derby run to Nottingham, Leicester and Birmingham as well as to London St Pancras, an hour and a half away. Oaklands Park also benefits from easy access to both local and long distance walks and cycle routes.
Arts & Entertainment
Community events and activities in Ashbourne range from amateur drama to a celebrated Shrovetide football game that takes place between teams of indeterminate numbers playing towards goals spaced three miles apart. The annual summer Ashbourne Festival is an eclectic two-week mixture of street performance, comedy, music, drama and art.
Leisure & Recreation
Known as the Gateway to the Peak District, Ashbourne offers easy access to wonderful countryside. Long distance paths include the Bonnie Prince Charlie Walk from Ashbourne to Derby, which passes adjacent to Oaklands Park, and the Tissington Trail through a series of picturesque landscapes and villages into Dovedale Nature Reserve. Ashbourne Recreation Ground, in the town centre, has a children’s play area and various sporting facilities, and Ashbourne Golf Club and the town’s Leisure Centre, with its swimming pool and gym, are both within a short walk.
Education & Health
Hilltop Infant and Nursery School, for children aged three to seven, is just a short walk from Oaklands Park, and there is a primary school, Parkside, in the town
centre, close to Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School. Ashbourne’s two medical practices, a dental surgery, and St Oswald’s Hospital, which has a walk-in clinic at weekends, are all located on Clifton Road, within a mile of the development.
Recycling facilities for packaging, paper, glass and textiles can be found half a mile away in Sainsbury’s car park, and larger items, including white goods and electronics, can be recycled at Ashbourne Recycling Centre.
There are two supermarkets and a range of smaller shops including a pharmacy and a post office less than ten minutes’ walk away, and nearby Waterside Retail Park includes an M&S food store, Homebase and a wine warehouse. The town centre offers an excellent selection, from traditional butchers and ironmongers to high street chains and banks, and an open air market is held in the charming cobbled Market Place each Thursday and Saturday.
When it comes to getting the details right, we're committed to quality throughout. We only work with high-quality brands, for example Symphony for kitchens, Porcelanosa for ceramic tiles and Ideal Standard for sanitary-ware.
From sleek, designer kitchens to cool, contemporary bathrooms, down to the fine details of tiles and taps, there's plenty to fire your imagination and suggest a whole range of possibilities for you to create a unique living environment.
Please note: Specification choices are dependent on build stage at the time of reservation.
“I really like the layout and design of our home; They really offered the best use of space in how it was all planned. I was happy that they divided the area available between the rooms themselves, prioritising the kitchen / diner and living room.
We’re located right on the edge of the market town of Ashbourne in Derbyshire, so it’s just a five minute walk to the centre where there are a lot of amenities, like supermarkets. All the shops you could want are very close by, and at the same time we’re on the edge of a very beautiful part of the country so we have everything here.
I’d definitely recommend Miller Homes...
...because the quality of the house is very good. Miller Homes has been very easy to deal with and it was a smooth process overall. We also think they have a slightly better quality of build than is offered by other builders.”
