Castle Donington - the hidden gem of the East Midlands!

Here at William Davis Homes, every one of our stunning developments is situated in a prime location and our Castle Donington development, Regency Park, is no exception.

Nestled south between Derby and Nottingham, the charming town consists of around 6,420 residents, making it a great place for families who want a quiet country living environment with lively cities nearby.

So why choose Castle Donington as the location for your new home? Here, we explore the many benefits of living in the beautiful market town.

A growing community

As one of the Midland’s best kept secrets, Castle Donington has a flourishing community of beautiful homes that provide amazing value for your money, so now is the perfect opportunity to upgrade your family life and home to a quaint market town with an inclusive society.

The town is never short of activities or events. Within the local community, there is an array of interest groups and regular outdoor events, such as the annual May Bank Holiday Medieval Market and the Farmer’s Market, which is held on the second Saturday of every month.

The Castle Donington Parish Council has its own community hub, a facility of open plan function rooms that can be used as offices or a hot desk area, alongside a café that is open daily. The hub currently plays host to the town’s volunteer centre and library.

Picturesque surroundings

On the edge of Castle Donington, you’re perfectly placed to enjoy the picturesque countryside as well as the wide variety of things to see and do in it. Elvaston Castle Country Park and the National Trust’s Calke Abbey are both within a 20-minute car journey. Or for even more beautiful views, Derbyshire’s Peak District is under an hour’s drive away.

The town has some stunning Tudor houses and is a popular area for boating and picnic areas along the River Trent. Not only is it an idyllic country setting, but it also plays host to a stunning, well-supported shopping street and a hearty number of country pubs.

High street essentials

Castle Donington’s thriving high street is home to an array of independent retailers, local coffee shops, restaurants, salons, and a great choice of takeaway options! If you’re keen to support local, this market town has it all.

Well connected

The market town is ideally situated whether you’re commuting to work, heading out to Nottingham, Leicester, Derby or London or even to another country, with the M1, A42, A50 and East Midlands Airport all nearby.

East Midlands Parkway railway station offers regular trains to Manchester, Sheffield and Birmingham and is just a short drive away from the town.

A town of history

Castle Donington is deep rooted in history, having existed for more than 1,000 years, the town dates back to long before the Norman Conquest, with evidence of Romans, Saxons and Vikings, and is even mentioned in the Domesday book.

In the town you’ll find the Castle Donington Museum, the Tarpey Gallery and the East Midlands Aeropark – an exciting aviation museum – and the Donington Grand Prix Collection, the largest of its kind.

Perfect for all generations

With The National Forest, Attenborough Nature Reserve and Twycross Zoo all within a 30-minute drive, there are plenty of nearby activities for the whole family to enjoy.

For education, all the Nurseries, Primary and Junior schools in the area are rated either good or outstanding, making it the perfect location for your growing family. And for higher education, the surrounding cities of Nottingham, Derby and Loughborough all play host to prestigious Russell Group universities.

So, with the perfect balance of village and city living, an exciting growing community and affordable homes, Castle Donington may just be the ideal location to upgrade your family home. To find out more about our development, Regency Park, download our brochure or register your interest.
