Charters is set in an elevated position within the village of Upper Mayfield and takes in far reaching views. It offers seclusion and yet is within very easy reach of the excellent range of amenities
offered in Ashbourne. Ashbourne is considered to be one of Derbyshire's finest market towns, with some splendid Georgian buildings and a range of high quality, independent shops. It also offers a range of supermarkets, including Waitrose and Marks and Spencer, a doctor's surgery and St Oswald's hospital. The town is considered the gateway to the Peak District National Park and
there are many tourist attractions within easy reach including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Alton Towers. Local opportunities for outdoor pursuits are almost unlimited with wonderful walking, climbing, horse-riding, and cycling, a range of water-sports and fishing on nearby Carsington Water. There is a very good range of well-known schools within the area including Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, Repton School,
Foremarke Hall Preparatory School, Denstone College, Derby Grammar, Abbottsholme, and St Anselms.
