Just off the M6, and with strong transports links to the local towns of Wolverhampton, Lichfield and Cannock, Essington is an ideal base for commuters. The village’s idyllic rural location in the Staffordshire countryside makes it the perfect spot for those fond of country hiking and outdoor pursuits, but there’s plenty for lovers of film, theatre, and sport too. The picturesque Brownshore Lakes, known locally as ‘the pools’ are less than a mile* away.  With its wildlife-rich surrounding woodland, it’s the ideal place to come for a gentle walk, a picnic and even a spot of fishing. Cannock Chase, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is just eight miles away and a popular spot for mountain bikers and horse riders alike. There’s plenty for the kids too, with a Gruffalo trail and a choice of two Go Ape adventure activities on offer. Culture vultures will love Wolverhampton’s independent cinema, Art Gallery and Grand Theatre, which attracts a wide range of major touring productions – all just five miles away. For multi-screen cinema, head to Bentley Bridge, four miles away. For shopping, locals choose between the shopping centre at Cannock and two more in Wolverhampton, all within a seven mile radius. For true shopaholics, Birmingham city centre offers world-class shopping, just 16 miles away. Health - Local health services can be accessed at Essington Medical Centre, less than half a mile away.
