Manor Farm, Long Duckmanton, is thought to be the birthplace of the Reverend Thomas Stanley, rector of Eyam from 1644-61 – and one of the key figures who decided no-one should leave the Peak District village when it was struck by the plague in 1666.

Estate agent Yopa, which is marketing the Grade II-listed Chesterfield Road property, said: “This property needs no introduction of grandeur as its impressive and imposing standing does this for itself.

“The current homeowners really have taken their time to lovingly restore this beautiful family home. There is an eloquent balance of modern and contemporary living and lifestyle with unmistaken quality throughout yet the character charm, history and ambience are evident throughout.”

Highlights include five large bedrooms, a boot room and vestibule entrance, modern kitchen/breakfast room and sitting room with wood burning stove.
