Smisby is a small rural village situated in South Derbyshire, close to Ashby-de-la-Zouch and the Derbyshire-Leicestershire boundary. Extremely popular with a mix of housing, including some fine older properties, the village offers the ambience of village life with the convenience of being on the doorstep to Ashby.
