Redhill is a wonderful area to live, work, and raise a family. It is perfect for commuters to the nearby City of Nottingham, but also those looking for a peaceful place to call home. Countryside is never far, including Gedling Country Park, Bulwell Hall Park, Bestwood Country Park, and of course, the iconic Sherwood Forest.
For families, Redhill is the place for achieving a well-rounded education for all ages. The Redhill Academy Trust oversees 15 academies at nursery, infant, junior and secondary levels. It has an excellent reputation for secondary education, achieving two “outstanding” Ofsted ratings in succession.
Outstanding primary schools include Pinewood Infant and Nursery School, Ernehale Infant School, Woodthorpe Infant School, and Haydn Primary School. Degree level students have access to two universities: the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University.
Whether you are interested in fine dining or shopping till you drop, Nottingham has everything you would expect from a city, and much more. Comedy clubs, theatres, and cinemas share street space with designer boutiques, lounge bars and cosy pubs. Explore Nottingham’s subterranean world of caves, visit leading art galleries, and enjoy a year-round programme of events.
Transport for Nottingham has invested in trams and e-scooters to aid mobility for all residents and visitors. From Redhill it takes 37 minutes by Tram (with a 6-minute walk), 1 hour 32 minutes walking, and 29 minutes by bike or e-scooter.
The legendary Sherwood Forest is just a 40-minute drive from Eagles Edge. The nature reserve is packed with ancient oaks, several species of wildlife, and echoes of famous English folklore. It’s free to explore the 420 hectares of unique woodland along the numerous walking, running and mountain biking trails. Special events, workshops and guided tours take place throughout the year.
