Underwood, Nottinghamshire is a pleasant hilltop village within the civil parish of Selston in the District of Ashfield. It stands in a former colliery district. The village offers views across the Erewash Valley towards the Southern Pennines. It is situated very close to junction 27 of the M1. It is bordered by Selston to the North, and Brinsley and Moorgreen to the south. Felley Priory, with its attractive gardens is accessed from the village.It is part of Nottinghamshires 'Hidden Valleys' area.Bagthorpe Primary School, and particularly Underwood C of E Primary School have good reputations, and as a consequence the area is a desirable one for families. This has caused house prices to be much higher in Underwood and Bagthorpe than in the surrounding areas, resulting in the villages having high levels of affluence, especially in Lower Bagthorpe and the area along Main Road, Underwood.

The village has numerous public houses including Ma Hubbards (formally the Brick and Tile), The Hole in the Wall, the Miners Welfare, the Red Lion, the Dixies Arms, the Shepards Rest, and the Sandhills Tavern.
