Welcome to Oaklands at Retford, the perfect location

The development, situated off London Road sits within a conservation area, just outside the chartered Georgian town of Retford. If offers bustling markets and rich history together with the peace and calm of countryside living.

Retford has held Saturday markets since 1275 and its past is reflected in the grand architecture of the market square, with the grand Victorian Town Hall as its centre piece, and in Cannon Square where the cannon captured from the Russians at the end of the Crimean War in 1855 is displayed.

Oaklands shares excellent transport links with the town centre, only a few minutes walk up London Road. A bus stop placed directly outside the development provides access to the regular services to Reford’s centre and train station, which offers local and national rail travel with Sheffield 23 miles away, Nottingham at a distance of just 30 miles and London reachable in just 1hr 25mins.

Oaklands is ideally placed for visits to Retford Golf Course, Bassetlaw Museum, Percy Laws Art Gallery and Babworth All Saints Church. The leisure centre, restaurants, pubs and Retford’s two theatres (the Majestic on Coronation Street and the Little Theatre on Wharf Road) are also nearby and easily accessible and the multi award-winning King’s Park, bisected by the River Idle, sits within the town centre.



‘Oaklands’ is a fantastic location. We were really exited about the move and our expectations have been realised. All the Staff at Marque Homes have gone out of their way to be courteous and helpful.


My husband and I moved into our new home on Marque Homes estate, Retford, just before Christmas, 2011. Within half an hour we were met with overwhelming kindness as neighbours visited, bringing flowers, a bottle of wine, new home cards and cups of tea, not only for us but the removal men! The site is gated and is a community within a community, thus being very safe and secure. We bought the property before we moved in, but added extras for which we await the bill. We are very happy here, received a lot of help to put up pictures etc. and know we have made th right move.


Moving from Lincoln was not a problem. The Company was so helpful in every way. I feel that what could have been problematic was made easy. There was a supervisor on site who gave that extra support. So wonderful to live here and so safe. The security gives peace of mind.
