Kirkby-in-Ashfield lies on the eastern edge of the Erewash Valley which separates Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. Kirkby, as it is locally known, was originally a Danish settlement (Kirk-by translates as 'Church Town' in Danish) and is a collection of small villages including Old Kirkby The Folly (East Kirkby), Nuncargate and Kirkby Woodhouse. The town's most famous historical resident is Harold Larwood; the England cricketer who was born in Nuncargate in 1904. Best known for his 'fast leg theory' in the Ashes Test series of 1932-33.
The property market in and around the Kirkby-in-Ashfield area is buoyant with houses selling at realistic prices. A three bed roomed semi-detached property in the area can fetch an average of £125,000, whilst a terraced property can fetch as little as £51,000 (which has good investment yields). At the other end of the scale you can find superb detached homes with land for the sum of £1.5 million. The lettings market is buoyant in the Kirkby area with tenants registering on a daily basis so the demand for landlords is extremely high. Getting the right tenant in your property is vital and we at Your-Move offer a full service catering from tenant find to rent collect and fully managed.
Sherwood Forest is a fantastic place to visit, where you can see the Major Oak and read all about Robin Hood. The town's most famous historical resident is Harold Larwood, the England cricketer who was born in Nuncargate in 1904. Best known for his 'fast leg theory' in the Ashes Test series of 1932-33.
"This really is a great area to live in", says Angie Wray, Branch Manager. "I have lived in the area all my adult life and love the friendly atmosphere, there are a wide range of activities from swimming to ice skating and an abundance of leisure centers. For shopping you have the East Midlands designer outlet just a stones throw away and the Idlewells shopping centre in Sutton and Four Season shopping centre in Mansfield. There are great schools for the children. Both my daughters have attended the local schools. And of course one of the great things is the A38 giving quick and easy access to Jct 28 of the M1. Also the Robin Hood line either from Kirkby in Ashfield, Sutton or Mansfield is a great way to commute to Nottingham to link onto the major railway lines or simply have a leisurely shopping day or sightseeing."
