Surrounding Towns/Villages

For a more relaxed trip out try the numerous smaller towns and villages in the surrounding area, such as:-


A small attractive Georgian market town formerly known for its silk glove and hosiery industries. Melbourne mean s ’Mill Stream’ so one of its best features is the old mill pond. It has a wide range of restaurants, bistros and cafes together with galleries, antique, specialist clothes and local produce shops. It has an attractive covered market place in the central square. Melbourne Hall and gardens are well worth a visit.


Repton is known and signposted as the capital of Mercia. There are many fine old buildings in the village, with the crypt of St Wystans church being one of the most important surviving pieces of Saxon architecture in the country. The market cross in the village centre is said to be where Christianity was first preached in the Midland.


This is a pretty village with several pubs, a church and a village lockup. It is the entrance point to Calke Abbey which has been dubbed ‘the house that time forgot’ as since its owner died in 1924 nothing has been altered. The seclusion of the house and bizarre lifestyle of past occupants has left many rooms untouched in over 100 years.

Weston on Trent

An attractive small village with many connections to the English Civil War, indeed the church of St Mary situated away from the village has a churchyard in which lie fallen soldiers from that conflict. Nearby Weston Hall is a large 5 storey Tudor building which is one of few private houses in the country which is moated.
