Owner's perspective - It's no overstatement to say that we love this house. From the physical layout and aesthetics of the house itself, to opening the door and seeing the gateway to the Peak District on our doorstep it ticks so many boxes. We have found the peace, quiet, fresh air and tranquility of Marston Montgomery a great leveller for the stresses of the daily grind, but with the nearby towns and transport links it doesn't feel too remote. Being on either the M1 or M6 in half an hour, or alternatively being in the deepest Derbyshire Dales countryside on your bike in minutes offers great balance. Or, none of the above and take a 1 minute stroll to enjoy the welcome and village atmosphere of the Crown Inn!
