Cotgrave is a village located 5 miles southeast of Nottingham, sandwiched between the A52, A606 and A46 with regular bus services running to and from Nottingham. Cotgrave still has a village atmosphere despite being a larger village. There are a number of amenities in the village and a shopping precinct. Here you can find a supermarket, eateries, leisure centre, library and a medical centre.
There are two primary schools in the village which feed through to highly regarded secondary schools.
Cotgrave Country Park is a great place to get away from it all, with over five kilometres of paths and trails; the site includes woodland, lakes, grassland, a horse riding trail and part of the Grantham canal runs through the park. This is an ideal place for walks, jogging, running or cycling.
