We are located a short walk or a few minutes’ drive from the centre of historic Nottinghamshire market town, Newark. Situated in over 14 acres of natural parkland our location offers the best of both worlds, with ample space for children to explore their natural environment and easy access to local facilities within Newark and the surrounding area.
We are conveniently located for local transport links with a regular high-speed rail service to London Kings Cross (just over an hour) and local trains to Lincoln and Nottingham. We are just minutes away from core trunk roads including the A1 north (for Doncaster) and south (for Grantham and Stamford), the A46 towards Nottingham and Leicester and the A17 towards Lincoln.
