Once heavily forested, the village remains a haven for nature lovers with a wealth of walks and cycle routes nearby. Calke Abbey is home to an enticing combination of heritage and nature, with regular themed events and way-marked trails that are open all year round. The popular visitor attraction, Conkers, also offers over 120 acres of woodland and lakes to explore, as well as a range of indoor and outdoor activities that make it the perfect family day out, whatever the weather.

For sports fans, there is an enviable selection of local golf courses near by, as well as a cricket club and leisure centre, while The Pipeworks retail park offers additional retail and restaurant options, along with a five-screen cinema.
