Development info

Situated in a rural village with a lovely community feel, great commuter links and proximity to Burton-upon-Trent and Derby, Wakelyn Gardens offers a range of brand new two, three and four-bedroom homes.

The development sits on the outskirts of Hilton, a South Derbyshire village surrounded by scenic meadows. Hilton provides a wonderful backdrop for everyday life, thanks to the local amenities on offer and welcoming feel. Within minutes of the development you'll find two supermarkets, two takeaways, three pubs, a pharmacy, post office and primary school – everything you could need for day-to-day living. There are plenty of ways to integrate into your new community – why not join one of the many local groups, such as the Women's Institute, Rotary Club, gardening club, dog walkers group, book club or amateur theatrical society? There really is something for everyone.

There's also plenty to explore beyond the village. Nearby villages including Etwall and Tutbury are well worth a visit for their independent shops and eateries, while a wider range of shops and attractions can be found either side of Hilton in Derby or Burton-upon-Trent.

Add this to the superb range of local schools, fantastic travel links and proximity to the beautiful Peak District National Park, and you have a location that anyone would be proud to call home.


Wakelyn Gardens is within easy reach of a number of schools rated 'Good' and 'Outstanding' by Ofsted. These include Hilton Primary School, Mease Spencer Primary Academy (a new school just a few minutes' walk from the development), Willington Primary School, Fountains High School and the John Port Spencer Academy. There's plenty to occupy kids outside of school hours too, thanks to the local playing fields, skate park, and weekly schedule of activities that take place in the village hall.


While essential shops including supermarkets and a post office are located in Hilton, within walking distance of the development, a wider choice of retail outlets can be found at the Octagon Shopping Centre in Burton-upon-Trent (6.8 miles away) and at Intu or Cathedral Quarter in Derby (10.1 miles away). The two locations both also offer a great range of eateries, cultural facilities and other activities.


Wakelyn Gardens, located just off the A50, is a popular commuter village, with excellent road links to Derby, Burton-upon-Trent, Nottingham and Stoke-on-Trent. Alternatively, you could catch a train from Willington (8 minutes away) for direct trains to Derby, Birmingham and Nottingham, or from Derby train station which has regular routes to London. The area is also served by a good bus network, and for travel further afield, East Midlands Airport is 19 miles away.
