Nestled in a rural area between Nottingham, Newark and Grantham lies Thoroton, a picturesque village that embraces the charms of a leisurely country life, whilst offering close transport links to nearby towns and cities. Such a location provides residents with easy access to the glamour and bright lights of the City whilst also enjoying the tranquillity of village life. We are immensely proud to be able to offer some stunning new homes in such a wonderful location.
This conservation village has the character of a traditional Nottinghamshire village with properties built from red brick and clay pantiles lining the street, wide grass verges edging the lanes and far-reaching views over large arable fields, hedgerows and streams. The village boasts a beautifully restored 500-year-old, thatched, circular dovecote, one of only three circular ones in the county, and a Grade 1 listed church. The small population of around 140 people is a tight knit, friendly community but despite being a small village the local area benefits from an incredibly large heritage with some famous historical sites on the doorstep, including Sherwood Forest, Belvoir Castle and Newstead Abbey.
The leafy countryside, fresh air and extensive farmland is the perfect backdrop for raising a family and Thoroton benefits from being within 15 minutes’ drive of two Outstanding Ofsted rated schools that focus on ensuring your children receive the best education possible whilst prioritizing their holistic wellbeing.
Travel to and from Thoroton to the larger cities is incredibly easy, being in a prime position close to the A46, A52 and A1. It is the ideal location for people wanting to live in the countryside whilst being able to quickly commute to Nottingham, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire and other key cities and towns in the East Midlands.
Styled to emulate a farmstead, Wheatcroft Homes brings together a culmination of modern technology and traditional styling within our charming properties. Each home incorporates the architectural features and natural materials that perfectly capture the charm of Thoroton’s heritage and its location, while also providing a growing family all the benefits of a high specification home that caters for every demand of the modern day.
