Dunston is now a semi-rural suburb of Chesterfield but it was at one time part of the ancient and extensive Manor of Newbold, held by the King in 1086. Dunston Hall dates back in parts to the 17th century although it has been extended and altered over the years and is now well known for the Dunston Hall Garden Centre which is situated in what was the old walled garden.

The centre of Chesterfield is about 2 miles to the south-east of Dunston, whilst only a few minutes drive to the west and you will find yourselves high on the Peak District moors with far reaching views over the National Park. A mile to the north of Dunston lies the A611 Dronfield Bypass which leads to the metropolis of Sheffield, making Dunston easily accessible for town or country facilities.

Surrounded by quiet lanes and back roads, it is an easy drive from Dunston to all areas of north-east Derbyshire.

Close to Dunston are Linacre Reservoirs where woodland paths and tracks are popular with walkers, cyclists and horse riders. Pretty in the spring when the bluebells are in bloom, the area is even more attractive in autumn when the trees are draped in glorious shades of amber.
