The Gate House stands in an elevated and prominent position set back from the pavement edge behind a foregarden.

Location -

The village of Duffield provides an excellent range of amenities including a varied selection of shops and schools including The Meadows and William Gilbert Primary Schools and the noted Ecclesbourne Secondary School.

The Gate House is located close to the noted Bluebell Woods, open fields and walks along the banks of the River Derwent thus enjoying delightful walks. The property also enjoys views to the Derwent Valley and beyond.

There is a regular train service into Derby City centre, which lies some five miles to the south of the village. Local recreational facilities within the village include squash, tennis, cricket, football, rugby and the noted Chevin Golf course. A further point to note is that the Derwent Valley in which the village of Duffield nestles is one of the few world heritage sites.
