Looking for a new home in Chellaston?

Chellaston is just outside the city of Derby. This is a conveniently placed residential area, between the city and the countryside below the Derby Southern Bypass.

Right on the edge of the city, this popular suburb of Derby is looked on by local people as a village and is big enough to have its own amenities, with the benefit of Derby's city centre, a 20-minute drive away, as its backup for all the extras. Chellaston looks to Derby for business and industrial opportunities, and to the Peak District National Park for leisure time.
