  • “A few people in other reviews mentioned the road noise but we didn’t find this to be a problem at all.”

    You could hear cars during the day but no one in our stay was woken up by it in the mornings or kept awake at night. The Joiners Shop is in an excellent location, has plenty of space and provided us with a really comfortable stay for a long weekend. Thank you!

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.
