Where to Live in Nottingham

With a rich variety of parks, museums, art galleries and a wide range of fun neighbourhood events, Nottingham is a brilliant place to call home. The city offers a great balance between the tranquillity of the countryside and the dynamism of its student community, and is packed with exciting activities for children and adults alike. To help you choose the right place for you, we’ve highlighted some of the best areas to live in and around the city.

The Lace Market

Located in Nottingham city centre, the Lace Market is an ideal spot if you’d like to live in the heart of the action. You’ll have access to all the bars, restaurants and local boutiques, as well as superb transport links into nearby popular sites such as Derby, Chesterfield, and Fernwood, where you’ll also find our popular Fernwood Village development.


Lenton is situated on the western part of the city, near the University of Nottingham campus. With plenty of different bars and shops, and lots of fun events being organized, properties here are always in high demand, which makes the area ideal for both short- and long-term investments. Lenton has also its own train station, with regular services for Derby, Loughborough and Leicester.


This part of the city is very popular among students and families alike, thanks to the many restaurants, boutiques and local facilities to pick from. Sherwood has shown huge potential over the years and is today seen as one of Nottingham’s up and coming areas. A real draw along with superb access to the city centre and great transport links to nearby local attractions like Sherwood Forest and the National Trust Hardwick Hall.

East Leake

A little further afield, about 12 miles south of Nottingham city centre, East Leake is a desirable place to call home. With a great selection of schools, and plenty of nature reserves close to hand, it is a great location for your move. Houses here are spacious, suitable for large and small families alike, including our exciting Skylarks development.


Uttoxeter is a pleasant market town found on the western outskirts of Nottingham. It offers great open spaces, plenty of local amenities for both adults and children and historical sites such as the Millenium Monument and the Dr Johnson Memorial. If you prefer the pull of the suburb to the frenzy of the city, don’t miss out our superb collection of 3 and 4 bedroom homes at Bentley Fields and Olive Park developments.
