Brailsford Village

Just over 2 miles away is the village of Brailsford. Head towards the A52 right by the Yew Tree Pub and right again onto the main A52. Follow the road up the hill. You will see Brailsford Post Office & Stores on your right hand side. A little further along, also on your right is The Buttermilk Coffee House, followed by Saracens Yard (see their Facebook page )with its small collection of shops. Just as you are leaving the village there is a turning on your right which takes you to Brailsford Golf Course which is open to non members. They have a welcoming club house, bar and café.

Bus routes

The nearest bus stop is on the A52 just past Ednaston and just over a mile walk. Stay on this side of the A52 to catch a bus to Ashbourne or cross the road and you will head to Derby.
