Little Acorns is situated within the small village of Alkmonton. This area of delightful countryside is located close to the edge of the Peak District National Park and the whole area presents
wonderful opportunities for outdoor leisure pursuits. There are hundreds of miles of footpaths, bridleways and cycle routes and Carsington Water has a well-regarded sailing club. The area is well
known for its historic estates and stately homes including Chatsworth, Tissington Hall, Sudbury Hall, Hardwick Hall and Kedleston Hall. Despite its attractive rural location, Alkmonton is within close
proximity to a number of transport links with the A50 linking to the M6 and M1 which are a short drive and provide fast connections to numerous regional centres including Birmingham, Nottingham, Derby and Leicester. East Midlands, Manchester and Birmingham International Airports and mainline rail services from Derby are also within easy reach.
The area is particularly well served with an excellent range of primary schools and secondary schools including Abbotsholme School, Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School, Denstone College,
Derby Grammar and Derby High Schools.
