Whitwell is a really nice little village...but it all depends on what you are used to. I grew up in a smaller village just down the road, all my mates live here, I know most people (at least to say aye 'up to) and I love it. On the other hand, the missus has lived in a town all of her life and she is struggling to adapt. We have been here since December and she is just starting to settle. You have to be prepared to be stared at at first "cos your not from round 'ere". Its an old mining village so there are some parts that are rougher than others, but it is mostly a really nice little village. Even in the rougher areas, there is not really any crime or any youths hanging around on street corners.
We are close to lots of open countryside if you enjoy that kind of thing. 5 mins from Clumber Park, 15 mins from Sherwood Forest, 10 mins from Rother Valley and 2 mins from some really good pubs
