Location & Access
1 The Mews is a quaint bungalow, which comprises part of an attractive gated community of ten buildings, which are built around a central courtyard. The complex was built in 1992 and has been beautifully maintained to this day by the proud residents, who give a fine display of hanging baskets and manicured lawns which promotes a very attractive appearance.
1 The Mews occupies its own private corner of the development, and access is gained through its own entrance directly off the front roadside and not the central courtyard, which gives the benefit of complete privacy. You are invited to use the dedicated parking at the rear of the complex along the row of garages. Please park in front of the third garage from the road as indicated with the sign.
Parking in front of the main courtyard is not allowed as this must remain free for access, but it can be used for unloading & loading purposes at any time. I kindly ask you to adhere to this request
as the other residents often need access.
The Mews is located on the eastern edge of Spondon which is only 4.0 miles from Derby city centre, and with direct access onto the A52, it is only 4.5 miles ( 8 mins ) from the M1 junction 25, which offers very easy access without the city centre traffic congestion.
We are also on the main bus route between Derby & Nottingham, and with a bus stop on the doorstep which has frequent buses arriving approx every 10 to 15 minutes, means we have good availability for public transport.
Bus times to Derby & Nottingham will vary on the service and time of day, but as a guide, they could be 15 to 30 mins into Derby, or 40 to 60 mins to into Nottingham.
Within a walking distance, 11 mins 0.6 miles will get you into Borrowash village, which offers a surprisingly good selection of amenities for a small location. These include a supermarket, Chip shop,
Birds Bakery, Chinese takeaway, Two very good Indian restaurants, daytime cafe, Chemist, Post office, Cash-point, Hairdressers, local butcher, and others. With free parking for the car if you want to drive.
I would recommend you walk so you can visit the ‘Wilmott Arms’ on route for a refreshing pint to go with something to eat from their extensive menu.
Walking to Spondon village is twice the distance with a bit of a hilly challenge so driving there is recommended, but again all similar local amenities can be found, including a particularly good bistro.
If you do not feel like going out or cooking, we have a fortunate selection of local and further afield establishments that will deliver to the door, too many to mention here, but the Wilmott does deserve a mention as they will also include a selection of beer to accompany your food delivery, if you forgot to bring your own.
