Property, setting and location:
In the unspoilt hamlet of Dethick at the gateway to the beautiful Peak District, The Manor Farmhouse provides an ideal setting for relaxing breaks. Partly Tudor it was once the home of Anthony Babington, whose misguided plot to assassinate Queen Elizabeth 1 cost him his own head. It is also the house featured in Alison Uttley's book "A Traveller in Time".
This well furnished, comfortable house was built in the 17th century from the remains of a 13th century manor house - there are low doorways, massive stone walls and an abundance of exposed beams.
It is surrounded by rolling Derbyshire countryside with enchanting walks, elegant stately homes and picturesque villages. Places of interest nearby include The Peak District National Park, Matlock, the Heights of Abraham, the stately homes of Chatsworth, Hardwick Hall and Haddon Hall and the Crich Tramway Museum.
Guests will find a friendly welcome and an informal atmosphere. With its stunning views and a lovely garden, it is perfect for those seeking beauty and seclusion.
