About the location

MARCHINGTON

Uttoxeter 5 miles; Ashbourne 15 miles.

The scattered village of Marchington is set in some beautiful rural countryside in the boundaries of the Marchington Woodlands, within easy reach of the Peak District National Park. Marchington is mentioned in the Domesday Book, and offers some beautiful walks as it runs adjacent to the River Dove. The village has a couple of friendly pubs with The Dog and Partridge serving good food, The Barn Indian Restaurant, a small shop and two churches. The village is situated five miles from the bustling Staffordshire town of Uttoxeter with its popular racecourse, golf club, and cinema. NT Sudbury Hall and its Museum of Childhood are very close by, offering a fascinating insight into days gone by. The market town of Ashbourne is within driving distance, with its eccentric street plan, narrow cobbled alleys and quaint coaching inns. Ashbourne is something of a haven for antique hunters, boasting superb shops, as well as offering a variety of good pubs and restaurants. The Dove and Manifold Valleys are also nearby, and with both Tittesworth and Carsington Reservoirs and the thrills of Alton Towers an easy drive, this is a beautiful and relaxing location to enjoy all year round.
