There is lots of history to discover close by. The Old Manor in Ashbourne is a grand, Elizabethan manor house adjoined to an impressive medieval hall. The house has a long and fascinating history. Badly damaged during the Civil Way it fell into ruins soon after the death of Sir John Fitzherbert in 1649. After being rebuilt in 1680 it has been well preserved ever since and is now owned by the National Trust. It also has lots of fascinating features to spot, including 17th century Flemish glass alongside a medieval fireplace and a rare king post. Elsewhere, Kedleston Hall offers a huge 820 acres of stunning parkland, with lakes and waymarked walks. As well as a museum, landscaped gardens, and even a costumed housekeeper.
