Surrounding areas

Derbyshire also has the benefit of being surrounded by some of the UK’s best counties – meaning there’s even more to enjoy if you move to a McCarthy Stone development. Yorkshire to the north is home to the stunning North York Moors, but also has an array of great towns and cities like Leeds, Sheffield, York and Hull, each of which being full of sights and attractions. 

If you head south you’ll reach Leicestershire and Staffordshire, with the latter having Alton Towers – one of the UK’s best theme parks and family attractions – and the former having fantastic historic sites like Leicester Cathedral and Bosworth Battlefield. 

Either side of Derbyshire is Cheshire to the west and Nottinghamshire to the east. Again, there’s lots to see and do in these counties, Nottinghamshire has the famous Sherwood Forest, in which you can get back to nature and enjoy the fascinating legend of Robin Hood. Equally, Cheshire is renowned for its top family days out at places like Chester Zoo and Gulliver’s World theme park.
