  • "Excellent We will be back."

    Low ceilings in parts of the house can be a problem for tall people. Nothing you can do about that.

  • "It was a home away from home."

    The hosts had thought of everything - even with an 18 month old in tow. Lovely cakes and toiletries were awaiting us on arrival. Fabulous location to access the facilities of Melbourne Hall and their Gardens. The food market in the Courtyard on Wednesday evenings is a must and so is the brewery and tea rooms. Easy walk in to town where there are a number of independent shops, cafes and a Sainsbury’s local. We had a fabulous stay and well worth booking.

    Thank you for the kind feedback. It was a pleasure to have you stay and I'm glad you enjoyed such a lovely holiday. From all at the Melbourne Hall Estate. Property Owner

The property

Nestled upon the grounds of Melbourne Hall in Derbyshire is Tithe Barn, a delightful, two-bedroom barn conversion.

Enjoying stunning, lakeside views, and set amongst a hub of amenities and pretty gardens, Tithe Barn offers an escape for four guests, looking for a characterful yet convenient base within reach of the Peak District National Park.

Be welcomed by strolling through the magnificent grounds, reaching your new abode.

Climb the internal stairs to reach the formal dining room, where you can dine, host, and socialise with original beams overhead.

Continue into the heart of the home, the open-plan living space, mixing both traditional and contemporary styles, where you'll locate a well-equipped kitchen, a sleek breakfast bar, and plush seating to unwind upon; enjoy views of the neighbouring church from this area.

When sleep calls, select from two spacious double bedrooms, one benefitting from a zip/link feature for flexibility, whilst the master enjoys breath-taking, elevated vistas of the lake.

Complete your morning routine in the handy bathroom, where you can opt for a refreshing shower or a long soak in the roll-top bath, before preparing to traverse the grounds, reaching several tea rooms, shops, a convenient coffee van, and the manicured gardens of the hall.

If you can tear yourself away from the estate, Staunton Harold Reservoir and Country Park offers a tranquil setting for a leisurely stroll and relax, whilst the National Trust remains of Calke Abbey, and the East Midlands Aeropark are ready to tour.

Head into Derby for further attractions, where you can discover the Derby Museum & Art Gallery, tour The Museum of Making at Derby Silk Mill, visit The Eagle Market, offering plenty of shopping opportunities, and dine out at a riverfront eatery near River Derwent.

Travel south to explore the Ashby de la Zouch Castle, Ashby De La Zouch Museum, or head into the Heart of the National Forest with your walking boots in tow, ready for a day in nature.

For a charming base in the heart of Derbyshire, book Tithe Barn.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

About the location


Derby 8 miles.

Melbourne is a small Georgian market town in a delightful part of South Derbyshire on the edge of The National Forest. It is about 8 miles south of Derby and 2 miles from the River Trent. It contains a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants. The village is also home to The church of St Michael with St Mary which is on the site of a much earlier Anglo Saxon building, and is regarded as one of the finest Norman Parish Churches in the country. It is 8 miles north of Swadlincote. There is much to enjoy in the village, including a lovely relaxing walk through rolling South Derbyshire countryside, starting from Melbourne’s medieval market place. Two of the county’s gems, Melbourne Hall and the Parish Church of St Michael’s, are passed in the early part of your stroll. Make the most of this attractive location all year round.
