Marsh Green Hall

Marsh Green Hall dates back to the 15th century and its history is linked to the Civil War. The stable block has been converted and is idyllically-placed on the edge of the small village of Ashover, five miles from the popular tourist town of Matlock. Situated in the hall’s grounds, along with the owner’s property, the two semi-detached properties have been meticulously renovated to a beautiful standard throughout. Retaining some exposed internal stone walls and timbers, both properties exude quality, with handcrafted, country-style kitchens boasting granite worktops, Belfast sinks and range cookers. The sitting rooms are comfortable and spacious with wood grain flooring, leather sofas and tasteful furnishings. Both properties offer contemporary bathrooms with an en-suite, a separate family bathroom and an additional ground floor cloakroom. With ample off road parking and private gardens showcasing views over open, private parkland and countryside, the properties provide excellent holiday homes with all modern comforts. A short stroll brings you to the four local inns and village shops, whilst golfers can enjoy a round on the 9-hole course in nearby Stonedge or on the Matlock golf courses. Ashover is one of the country’s largest parishes and has an extensive footpath network, with all routes coming back to the village. The surrounding area is wonderful for walking and cycling, or touring the pretty market towns and popular tourist attractions. Nearby Matlock, with its warm springs, offers interesting, independent shops, restaurants and tempting tea rooms, with Leys Hall Park providing a lovely setting for recreational activities such as bowls, tennis and boating. Chatsworth House and gardens are about 20 minutes’ drive away and Hardwick Hall and Haddon Hall are also both well worth a trip. With Crich Tramway Museum and Matlock Bath close by, there's a wealth of activities for all. For birdwatchers and nature lovers, you can enjoy taking a walk around Carsington Water along well defined paths. Both lovely properties really do sit in a delightful area of Derbyshire.
