Derbyshire sits in the East Midlands of England. A large part of the beautiful Peak District National Park is here, meaning the landscapes are naturally picturesque and many of the towns and villages have a rural edge. This county also has part of the National Forest and The River Derwent running through it, so if you are a lover of the great outdoors, this is the place for you.

The town of Sandiacre is big with those that love good quality food and drink, as it is filled with excellent restaurants as well as affordable homes. It’s almost important to mention that Bakewell is home to the Bakewell pudding, one of the Peak District’s world-famous delicacies.
Mercia Marina is not only a pretty waterside location, but here you can move on to a wide boat for less than £100,000. If you prefer dry land, the terraced houses here and great for families and young couples too.
