  • "Fabulous quirky property."

    Very spacious and warm. Accommodated our toddler grandson and a very sensitive Viszla extremely well. Panelled bedroom like being on a ship with wonky floorboards and doors . The goat got a nasty suprise when we appeared in the garden but managed to hop over the gate into its proper field before the dog could say hello. Very well equipped with a small supply of tea and coffee-big bottle milk left for us in the fridge. Obviously a much loved family home and not a sterile holiday venue.

    Thanks Nick, we really appreciate your comments. Kind regards, R&S. Property Owner

  • "Amazing house, very clean."

    Think the uneven floors helped reduce the alcohol!!!the cistern on the upstairs toilet (not the bathroom) didn't always refill so needed a jiggle. Good provision of cot, high chair, plastic crockery, toys, dishwasher tablets. Brill cookware- we always bring good knives but didn't need too- sharp! Lovely garden- kids loved the slide despite the wet! The goat from the field nearby jumped through the compost bin into the garden- again kids loved it!! Very very very warm house.

    Plenty of room for all of us in this impressive old house, full of character. Village is lovely and we enjoyed a drink at the pub across the road. We did a couple of nearby walks in the Rolling countryside which we enjoyed despite the rain. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

  • "Another great stay at The Manor House."

    We were a group of 4 families with young children and the space worked great. Both indoors and outdoors there was plenty of space for everyone. The children loved the garden and the secret toy cupboard! Adults loved the very well equipped kitchen and great dining space for eating, socialising and board games. The house really had everything you could need. Location wise is fantastic. We had a Tesco delivery but topped up at Ashborne shops only a few miles away. We all enjoyed days out at Peak Wildlife Park and Sudbury Hall. We will definitely be back. Thank you again.

    Hi Anna, Thanks for your great review - much appreciated. The penguins enclosure at the wildlife park was our kids favourite. An unusual sight for Derbyshire! Come back soon. R&S. Property Owner

  • "Would highly recommend this property."

    Several days before arrival, we received a comprehensive information pack; the detailed instructions on how to find the property were a big help for those guests whose satnav took them to the school! The house is full of charm with many original features, yet has modern kitchen, bathrooms etc. The kitchen was very well equipped and the welcome pack, including doggy treats, was much appreciated. There was plenty of space for our party of 10 plus 2 dogs, and the separate sitting rooms were great for a group that size. The photos don't do justice to the garden, which is extensive and well maintained. There is a dog friendly pub over the road which serves good food. I'm not sure why Sykes advertises this property as having 2 bathrooms - there are definitely 3! The description also doesn't mention the (rather lovely) stairgate which, while not at the foot of the stairs so not perfect for babies/toddlers, keeps the dogs downstairs.

    Hi Jackie Thanks so much for the great review. Also for pointing out our missing bathroom on the property description! We have updated the listing. Please visit again soon! Kind regards, R&S. Property Owner

  • "What an absolutely lovely property!"

    Set in an idyllic location, with a host of charm and beautiful character this house was perfect for out family and friends weekend away. Everything was finished to a high standard, it has everything you need. We loved the quirkiness of the property. Also, huge bonus of a fabulous pub just over the road!!! Only issue is the heat and some rooms have sealed windows so it gets extremely hot. And it may have been nice to have a games room instead of 2 sitting rooms, however we would come back again in a heartbeat! Thank you.

    Hi Emma Thanks for the great feedback. We are really pleased you had a great time. We hope you discovered the games cupboard in the second lounge! Some of the window frames in the property are absolutely ancient which is why they are fixed closed - we were worried that they would be damaged if left in the wind. They are unique ancient windows and are irreplaceable. We know it can get hot - particularly nowadays and have provided fans to try and help keep everyone cool! Hope that helped? Come back soon.

  • "What a beautiful and handsome old property this is, with its quirks and history."

    Despite the age of the property the key facilities such as the kitchen and bathrooms were modern and fully equipped. Comfy beds made for a good nights sleep and lovely back garden was a lovely place to sit and unwind after a busy day at near by Alton Towers (where me and my family of 9 were for the weekend). Only suggestion I would make is to put more sofas/seating in one of the 2 lounges (not enough for more than 6) and change the other into a games room (pool table, darts etc), as its a shame we didnt use the other room as we all wanted to spend the time together and not be split into 2 rooms just so we can sit down. Aside from that, we loved our stay and will be back !

    Hi John, Thanks for your feedback. We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay. Alton towers and the water park Splash landings are a great facility to have locally! We used to take our kids there too. Come back soon!. R&S. Property Owner

    It is in a great location and provided ample comfortable accommodation. There are just a few suggestions: The available beds and layout needs updating - specifically the trundle beds that we needed to make use of because not all our guests were in couples. The details indicated no baby facilities - in actual fact there was a high chair and a travel cot so I need not have brought (and purchased!) these There was no pepper mill bizarrely although there was a container of peppercorns! There was no indication of what to do with the recycling although separate bins were provided. We generated a lot over the holiday period and could find nowhere nearby to take it. Otherwise the property was was well equipped, warm and a most interesting property to host a large family gathering over New Year, Thank you.

  • "Gorgeous property full of character with potential of being 5*."

    Overall we had a fantastic stay but a few things bothered us. Here are the things that could be improved. Full replacement of range oven. We were told the day before the hob was broken. This was a nightmare when cooking for 10 people. We were given a late check out as a gesture of goodwill which was no good to us as we had to go back to work. The x2 temporary hob plates were not great but we had no choice. We relied more on the oven which wasn’t super reliable either (uneven heat etc). Maybe just replace the whole thing?! Living room arrangements, the 1 with the working chimney is the one we used the most as it had the big tv and log burner in it. There are 2 sofas and 1 big bean bag, we were a group of 10 so it always meant a few people were sat on the floor or beanbag which is not ideal. We wanted to sit as a group and felt like this set up was better for a group of 6 adults… please look at this as at full capacity it would be even worse (groups don’t always want to sit in separate rooms). The freestanding bath was something a lot of us wanted to use but it isn’t installed at level so it wobbles from side to side, doesn’t feel safe, again please look into this.

    Hi Matt Thanks for your feedback. Sadly our induction cooker was indeed temporarily ‘on the blink’ for your visit. It is a bit of a monster with 5 hob rings and 4 ovens and the repair company was unable to effect a full repair immediately... Thankfully it is now back in full working order! We did buy the extra hobs for your party to try and avoid any inconvenience. These will now also be available for future guest-stays giving the property a total of 7 hobs! Enough for any aspiring chef I should think! Property Owner

    It was lovely & clean & we really appreciated the hamper on arrival. The milk was a lovely touch too so thank you! Perfect for a group our size. Pub next door (The Crown Inn) was also great. Feedback - I would say more toilet roll should be given. We also couldn’t access the cupboard under the stairs with the washing machine in it as it was locked & no key was given for this. We would definitely recommend this place to friends. Thanks for having us!

    Hi Jessica Thanks for the great feedback. We will certainly boost the loo-roll supply :-) The cupboard under the stairs isn’t actually locked - it is of ancient construction and you open it by popping your finger into the circular hole and pushing up the latch on the other side from beneath.

Bedroom had no hanging space and even with radiator full on was quite cold.

Although very old house, the kitchen and bathrooms modern with quality fixtures and fittings and good facilities. Only real negative - kitchen, bathrooms, bed linen and towels clean but upstairs very dusty and full of cobwebs.

    . Pros- house is very clean, kitchen well equiped, fabulous large garden for adults and children, 2 lounges make it perfect for a family getaway so children can have their own space too. Its is a beautiful old house with wonky floors/walls etc - this is part of the charm. A lovely welcome basket from the owners. Pub opposite for lunch/dinner if required. Cons, only 8 dining chairs which is strange as it is a house for 12-14 so you can’t eat together. We were lucky with the weather and ate outside but would be a pain in bad weather. Even in April the house was boiling!! Only 1 bedroom had opening windows which made us all slightly uncomfortable- the attic bedroom is classed as a family room but was unbearably hot, admittedly there was a fan but in the summer you wouldnt be able to be upstairs, only a tiny unopening window up there.

    Hi Rebekah, Thanks for your review, we are really pleased you enjoyed your stay. The extra chairs are stored in the utility room under the stairs - really sorry you didn’t find these - we will have to make it more obvious in the welcome pack! We even have oak extensions for the dining table to cater for our largest groups (the table extensions are under the sofa in lounge). The bedroom on the third floor does get a little hot in Summer as it is right under the eaves! We usually have the fans running to try and keep it cool. The bedrooms on the first and second floor are better for cooler customers! Thanks again. R&S Property Owner

Negatives - the mattress in the double bed in the black and white room is very uncomfortable and I’ve been left with back pain after sleeping on it for a few days! Definitely needs a new one.

The property

Rocester 2.7 miles.

Tucked away amongst 1.5 acres of countryside, on the outskirts of the quaint village of Marston Montgomery, rests this remarkable Grade II* listed holiday home, The Manor House.

Set across three floors and boasting an interior full of original character, The Manor House makes an idyllic base for a group retreat to the Peak District.

A spacious driveway with off-road parking for up to six cars greets you at the foot of this picture-perfect holiday home, making loading and unloading an easy task and leading you through the landscaped grounds and into your new home-from-home.

Stepping inside, be welcomed by a charming entrance hall, providing handy storage for your coats and shoes away from the main living areas, adjoined by a fully accessible wet room to help freshen up following a day of adventure.

Warm your toes with the underfloor heating as you discover the open-plan kitchen/diner, traditionally decorated with exposed wooden beams, an eye-catching log store and a rustic woodburning stove nestled within an inglenook fireplace, providing a homely spot to gather with your loved ones to tuck-in to a heart-warming meal.

Settle down for the evening with a sumptuous seat in front of the Smart TV in the sitting room or carry the conversation outdoors with a sociable seat amongst the rolling greenery of your private garden, where you can enjoy a crisp glass of wine as the little ones keep themselves entertained on the swings.

Escape the excitement and retreat to the enticing snug room, where you enjoy a moment of peace as you delve into the pages of a captivating book or recount the days adventurers over a bottle of wine with your better half.

Completing the ground floor is a wheelchair accessible double bedroom, ideal for a multi-generational family or for those with limited mobility.

Climbing the stairs to the first floor, you'll find four well-presented bedrooms, with a super-king-size and a family room sharing access to the family bathroom, alongside two double room, each lovingly adorned with rustic wooden décor and exposed beams.

The original character of the property continues to the second floor, where a second family room is found settled underneath the vaulted ceiling, providing an intimate setting to enjoy a night’s embrace.

Take advantage of your rural location by lacing up your walking boots and taking a stroll through the generous grounds enveloping your holiday home, where you can lose yourself amongst the shrubbery of the orchard or let the little ones burn off some steam with a ballgame on the extensive lawns.

A short walk from your doorstep will bring you to the village pub, The Crown Inn, serving fresh, locally sourced produce in a rustic setting, or for a wider variety of choice, the village of Rocester rests within easy reach.

Whilst you're in the area, be sure to visit the JCB Golf and Country Club, where you can test your swing on the magnificent course, designed by internationally renowned golf course architect, Robin Hiseman, or head to Denstone Hall Farm Shop & Café to stock up on local artisan produce to enjoy from the comfort of your holiday home.

You can expect thrills at the nearby Alton Towers theme park, stretching over 500 acres and boasting rides and attractions that all the family can enjoy; thrill seekers can ride the award-winning roller coaster, The Wicker Man, whilst the little ones can meet their idols at Cbeebies Land.

With the Peak District National Park resting on your doorstep, you're spoilt for choice with the plethora of walking, cycling, and hiking routes to choose from, why not challenge yourself with a climb to the summit of Kinder Scout, the highest peak in the area and part of The Derbyshire Three Peaks Challenge.

Whisk your loved ones away on an unforgettable retreat with a stay at The Manor House.

About the location

ROCESTER

Alton Towers 5 miles; Uttoxeter 5 miles; Ashbourne 10 miles.

A pretty little village, Rocester lies on the Derbyshire and Staffordshire border, located on a triangle of land between the River Churnet and River Dove. The site of a Roman fort exists today and the village was also mentioned in the Domesday Book. Rocester is home to the famous JCB factory, and the company has landscaped the surrounding area to provide some wonderful walks with some interesting sculptures around the site and the nearby parkland. Most significant of these is The Fossor, which is made entirely of digger parts and is a powerful representation of JCB. Rocester is halfway along the Staffordshire Way which runs the length of Staffordshire and is also at the start of the Limestone Way which goes to Matlock. Close to Rocester is the lovely market town of Ashbourne, and just a short drive away is Alton Towers, with fun for all the family. Explore either the Staffordshire or Derbyshire part of the Peak District National Park with historic houses, market towns, moorland, rolling hills and valleys, all easily accessible from Rocester.
