The Heddles development forms part of the Newark urban expansion, which is newly named Middlebeck. Set in 300 hectares of beautiful open countryside, the new place will feature a host of local amenities and is just a short drive from the quaint village of Balderton and the larger town of Newark, which is steeped in history and famed for its role in the English Civil War.
Taking inspiration from the stream which flows through it, Middlebeck’s ambience is one of idyllic serenity, offering residents a peaceful way of life. This gentle setting also brings the opportunity for a community hub to grow and for the development to become one of Nottinghamshire most sought-after places to live.
Middlebeck has been designed very much with the importance of nature in enjoying a rich quality of life at the forefront. With natural landscaping, scenic paths, walkways and cycle paths abound, you can bask in the sort of outdoor lifestyle you’d expect from a delightful rural village.
Throughout the development process, Middlebeck will reap the benefits of having its very own primary school and GP practice, as well as an array of local shops, cafes and bars to befit this modern urban expansion.
The project is also perfectly located to take in the bustling town of Newark. Sitting on the banks of the River Trent, Newark is a cultural and historical hotbed, as well as being home to the Buttermarket indoor shopping centre and a range of well-known high street brands. Antique and vintage shops are dotted around the town and provide a great insight into the historic importance of the town.
The city of Nottingham can be easily accessed from Middlebeck by the excellent transport links, while Grantham, Mansfield and Lincoln are each around a 30-minute drive away. Two local train stations – Newark North Gate, with travel time to London Kings Cross of just 80 minutes, and Newark Castle – are also located a short distance away from the development.
