    Getting there

    Our nearest airport is East Midlands (45 Mins) but we are not too far from Birmingham (1 hour), Manchester (90 Mins) and just two and a half hours from London by train.

    While it would be possible to travel around Derbyshire by public transport you would enjoy it much more by car.

    Comfortable family home in central England.

    Close to the Peak District and surrounded by stately homes.
