Living in Bassetlaw

Bassetlaw is an incredible mix of the bustling, historic towns of Retford and Worksop and picturesque villages which offer a more tranquil pace of life. Our area offers something for everyone, including a much lower cost of living than surrounding areas.

Retford Park

There is a wealth of heritage and history here and simply stunning scenery right on the doorstep including a National Trust Park - and, of course, the world famous Sherwood Forest nearby. Stroll along the Chesterfield canal, or get more energetic in one of our many Leisure Centres. Take the kids to see Nature Reserves or the famous Mr Straw's house, or instead give them a thrill at Sundown Adventureland or the Kids Zone. We have a wide choice of schools within the Bassetlaw that you can choose from. Our Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Bassetlaw Primary Care Trust are among the best performing in the country.

The Gallery

There's always something going on, from quirky village events like the Ranskill Scarecrow Festival to the Fabulous Arts in Bassetlaw Annual Festival. Then we have theatres, galleries, name it, it's all here.

Bassetlaw is an invigorating, inspiring place to live whether you choose town or rural life. It's a fantastic place to make friends, make memories - and make your home.

And, just in case you do want to get away for a while, Robin Hood and North East Midlands airports are both under an hour's drive, with Manchester and Birmingham airports also just 90 minutes' away. Putting Europe and the world within easy reach.
