The property is around 4 miles from Tuxford, which has a much wider range of local shops and facilities for everyday needs, including excellent education options for all ages. Retford (9 miles), Worksop (14 miles), Newark (18 miles) and Lincoln (14 miles) offer further facilities.
The commuter is well served by the main line rail link from either Retford or Newark stations into London Kings Cross, taking from around 1 hour 20 minutes, or the regional motorway network with the A1(M) close by. Doncaster Robin Hood, East Midlands and Leeds Bradford Airports all provide regional flights to the continent.
Leaving the A1 at Markham Moor, head East on the A57 towards Lincoln. Continue for around 4 miles, passing through the village of Darlton, and after less than a mile the property will be found on your left hand side.
