Here in the National Forest there is so much to do for adults and children. You can go to Thomasland at Drayton Manor Park, the National Memorial Arboretum, Calke Abbey (NT), Twycross Zoo, the National Brewery Centre, St Georges Park National Football Centre, and Conkers to name just a few. Our guests are constantly surprised at the number and range of interesting places to visit and other activities that are within a short drive of the cottage. Within 35 minutes drive you can be in Birmingham and nearer to home are Derby, Lichfield, Tamworth, Ashby de la Zouch, Swadlincote and Burton on Trent. The beautiful Peak District is north of here for a lovely day out. Coton-in-the-Elms and our cottage is ideally placed in a quiet village location with a friendly real ale pub, and small shop. We have many walks, cycling, fishing and horse riding nearby. Getting here is easy. We are right in the centre of the country and road links are excellent (M42 and A38).


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I have lived in Coton-in-the-Elms very happily for 37 years. The people round here are friendly and welcoming. I love living in the country and enjoy walks and cycling round the lanes.

Why the Owner Chose Coton in the Elms, Swadlincote, Derbyshire, UK:
The cottage needed a total makeover when we bought it, but I'm a very practical person and was a great builder's mate and project manager! Being close to our home means is so useful for looking after the house and garden and being there to meet and greet our guests.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
On a lovely summer day the sun will shine in the garden from sunrise to sunset and it is so peaceful! At the end of the day, take your glass of wine to the top of the garden and catch the last rays of the sun and the is lovely!
