The village of Donisthorpe has seen many changes and improvements in recent times. Since the demise of the local colliery, new life has been breathed into the area and quality housing constructed around its perimeter. In spite of progress, the village still retains a certain charm and enjoys close links with Moira and the National Forest and the nearby bustling market town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch about three miles away. The M42 motorway is easily accessible with links through to the M1 and M6 motorways and to all major Midland towns and cities. The Nottingham East Midlands airport can be reached by car within half an hour.
