Why Move to Derbyshire?
One of the most popular reasons to live in Derbyshire is that it is in a super central location. This large county spans both the Peak District and the Midlands and is a well-connected transport hub.
Derbyshire sits in the middle of the UK and has easy access to its own city Derby, with Manchester and Sheffield all perfectly commutable. Additionally, you can get to Leeds, Nottingham, and even Birmingham within a reasonable travel time.
The county was once the beating heart of the industrial age of England. In the early 18th century, Richard Arkwright established cotton-spinning mills, using pioneering machinery, by the River Derwent at Cromford and Matlock Bath. Both these towns fall within Derbyshire’s borders.
The region has a long history which can be traced back to over 10,000 years ago when humans settled here after the last Ice Age. It is a county of contrasts, busy towns, and quiet villages surrounded by areas of great natural beauty, home to the incredible Peak District National Park. Its numerous large cities offer both residents and visitors a chance to soak up historical sites and lively entertainment venues.
Arguably Derbyshire is most famous for its array of unique, stunning country houses that span the length and breadth of this beautiful county. Chatsworth House is one of the most notable. With all this to boast about, the cherry on the top has got to be the county’s economically priced homes. According to Zoopla, property prices fall well below the 2022 national average.
The county scores highly when it comes to its education standards, making it ideal for raising a family. The economic development of the county is ongoing, and a number of interesting projects are either in the planning and consultation stage or have already been completed. Yet to be confirmed is the High Speed 2 rail line will pass through Derbyshire at some point in the near future, making it even more accessible than it already is.
Having more than 500 miles of superb countryside to explore, on foot, on your bike, or by car, your weekends will be booked up before you know it. A forward-thinking county, Derbyshire covers everything you need to live a good life.
