  • "We had a fantastic time away at The Manor House."

    It was clean, warm and had everything we could possibly need for a comfortable stay. We loved the fact there are two sitting rooms - great for the kids! It is a spacious yet cosy house and we all enjoyed getting out in the garden too. We hope to return soon! Thanks for a wonderful stay!

    Hi Claire Thanks so much for coming. We’re really pleased you enjoyed your stay. We’d love to host you and your family again. R&S. Property Owner

  • "The Manor House was absolutely amazing, it exceeded our expectations."

    It’s a Beautiful place to get away for the whole family, with lots of space but still very cosy. Absolutely beautiful grounds on the outside. Inside it has a really special feel with the history but also still has a modern twist. I Couldn’t recommend this place enough.

    Hi Jade, Thanks so much for your great feedback. We’re really pleased that you enjoyed yourselves. Rob and Sarah. Property Owner

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


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.
