Discover Chesterfield

Famed for its crooked church spire, Chesterfield is a town on the rise. Best known as ‘the heart of industrial England’ and a gateway to the Peak District, Chesterfield stands out on the map as the largest town in Derbyshire and a thriving location for new builds. Chesterfield is English town lifestyle at its finest and a welcoming place to raise a family.

New build homes in Chesterfield are surrounded by stunning vistas and plenty of wide open spaces. The Peak District sits right on the town’s doorstep, meaning your weekends can be spent roaming the picturesque peaks and caverns of the UK’s fifth largest national park.

But there’s far more for owners of our Chesterfield new builds to enjoy than some of Europe’s greatest countryside. There’s plenty to do in town, with country pubs and family activity centres aplenty. Chesterfield is the perfect location for those wanting a good balance of countryside and city life.

Highlights of living in Chesterfield

While Chesterfield might appear quaint with its crooked parish spire and simple market town appearance, the town has more than 2,000 years of history behind it. Starting life as a Roman military fort right at the edge of the empire before sailing into the forefront of history as the home of the first steam engines, the industries that sprung up Chesterfield during the industrial revolution have made an impact around the world.

If you’re looking for a new build, Chesterfield has everything a new family needs to get settled. Despite its busy nature on the weekends, Chesterfield is full of rural atmosphere and countryside living. Kids will be able to experience big city living but also benefit from easy access to the great outdoors.

The Peak District National Park, one of the most inspiring landscapes in all of the UK, is just a stone’s throw away from our new build homes. Chesterfield residents are a mere 15 minutes by car from the park’s borders, where they can go hiking, caving, climbing, and much more. The opportunities for discovery in the Peak District are endless but Chesterfield is also home to plenty of trail walks if you’re after a walk right outside your house.

Sports fans looking for a house in Chesterfield won’t be disappointed. Professional Derbyshire cricket is regularly played in the Queen’s Park, and our Chesterfield new builds are close to Chesterfield FC’s stadium - though not too close to bother you on match day. Golf lovers also have a choice between the Tapton golf course and South Chesterfield golf club if they want to practice their driving.
