The property is situated within the popular village of Bonsall, which lies on the edge of the Peak District National Park and is ideally situated for the nearby towns of Matlock, Bakewell and Wirksworth, whilst commuting to Nottingham and Derby is done with ease.

Description 
The property on offer comprises two dwellings, the principal one being The Manor House, a 17th Century Grade II listed dwelling with spacious living accommodation.
