Oakerthorpe Manor

Manor House -
8 Bedrooms , 5 Bathrooms , Sleeps 17
South Wingfield, Derbyshire, England
Oakerthorpe Manor is an 19th Century Manor House situated in private grounds, ideal for that getaway from it all with family and friends. With 8 bedrooms, there is plenty of spacious accommodation to cater for a large group. The Manor is approached through electric gates with a long driveway with plenty of parking available.

You are likely to see rabbits and squirrels from your window and can pick apples, pears and damsons from the trees in summer. The house has been completely renovated in keeping with its Victorian origins, but also given a contemporary twist, to give you that feeling of splendour and luxury.

From first arriving at the property myself and my group were made to feel very welcome, and we loved the property which just seemed to have an endless supply of bedrooms. Couldn't have asked for any more and we can't wait to visit again soon.

Our third visit to Oakerthorpe Manor! Great location, lots of things to do and would highly recommend the new 'Pesto' restaurant (was The Peacock Pub) just up the road. As always, the house had everything we needed (plenty of glassware and barbecue tools in particular!)....More
