‘The Old School’ is a tastefully restored former school, built in 1863, sitting in the lovely Derbyshire village of Morton. It retains its original features, creating a quirky and comfortable place to stay. The village of Morton lays claim to being the geographical centre of England.

The detached property sits next to the ancient village church in a conservation area and has recently been fully refurbished to a high standard (July 2021).

Outside is a front forecourt with potted plants and astro turf, while to the side is a sheltered patio with seating area. All of the outside is securely fenced and gated.

Enter through the original door into the light and airy, open plan living area. The kitchen area is complete with fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, electric oven, gas hob, microwave and plenty of cupboard space, and is fully equipped with everything you need to make either a sandwich or a 3 course meal.

Central to this area is an oak dining table with 4 chairs.

At the far end is a comfortable lounge area with corner sofa, comfortable armchair and a selection of antique and retro furniture. A 40" Smart TV sits in the corner and a selection of games and guides are also provided for entertainment.

The ground floor has solid oak flooring with a huge luxury rug covering the entire lounge area. The original, open fireplace is made from local stone and a starter supply of wood and kindling is provided – a must on chilly nights, very atmospheric and cosy. This is in addition to the modern combi boiler gas central heating providing warmth and instant hot water.

The pine and stainless steel staircase takes you upstairs where the master bedroom wows you with the original, exposed roof beams and a sublimely comfortable double bed. This is a mezzanine floor, so it is open down to the lower floor. The huge front window reaches over both floors. There is plenty of storage, in the form of a chest of drawers, and a comfortable velvet Chesterfield chair creates a cosy nook to read or relax. Along the landing is a walk-in wardrobe, then on to the second bedroom. Here you will find a 4' double bed, Victorian washstand, bedside table and beautiful views across to the ancient church.

The bathroom has a modern suite, with white P-shaped bath with power shower over, a WC and wash hand basin.

All the upstairs rooms are built into the eaves and have Velux style windows.

The village of Morton lays claim to being the geographical centre of England, so is ideally placed for visiting both Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire. Situated just 7 miles from the start of the Derbyshire Dales, the village was mentioned in the Doomsday Book and a recent hoard of Roman coins was discovered close to The Old School. The village has two local pubs (one just 200m away), a post office, general store, hairdressers and beauty salon, along with a children's park.

From the doorstep in any direction are numerous country walks. Within striking distance are Matlock Bath, Cromford, Buxton, Bakewell, Chesterfield, Nottingham and Derby, to name just a few. There are amazing places to visit too, such as Chatsworth House, Newstead Abbey and Hardwick Hall, all close by, as well as the wide open spaces of the Dales and Peaks.

I have always lived in the area am happy to recommend places to visit, walk, shop and eat!
