Set in a peaceful, tranquil location in the heart of canal country, Mercia Marina is on the scenic Trent and Mersey Canal, halfway between Fradley Junction and Trent Lock/Sawley.
The Marina was created from the existing Willington Lake and nestles within 74 acres of unspoilt Derbyshire countryside with quiet footpaths leading to the nearby villages of Willington, Findern and Repton.
With boats to hire, fishing, walking and cycling at the Marina itself as well as a wealth of leisure opportunities close by, there is always plenty to do. The neighbouring villages of Willington and Findern can easily be reached via footpaths or the towpath.
Situated in the heart of the Midlands, the Peak District and Derbyshire Dales are world class destinations, stretching from the breathtaking landscapes of Britain's first National Park to the ancient oaks of the National Forest in the south of the county.
With a fascinating historical and cultural heritage, this diverse region is home to some of the country's finest stately homes including Chatsworth, Haddon Hall, Kedleston Hall, Hardwick Hall, Elvaston Castle, and Calke Abbey. Enchanting market towns, picturesque villages, the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site, Alton Towers, Drayton Manor Park, Carsington Water, Dovedale, National Space Centre are all easily accessible.
