Description

Norbury Manor is the former seat of the Fitzherbert family, who now reside in Tissington Hall.

The property is a rare example of a medieval hall built on the first floor and once formed part of the private apartments of the Fitzherberts. The surviving part of the original early medieval hall offers a rare king post, Tudor door and 17th-century Flemish glass. Visitors can also find a beautifully maintained small garden space which includes a knot garden, as well as a short walk into the woodland, and path which leads down to the River Dove.

The manor is run by the National Trust (entry is free for NT members) – opening hours are restricted so check their website for details. There are no visitor facilities and parking is limited.

By car from Ashbourne

By car its just 10 minutes drive along Sides Lane from Clifton but note there is very limited parking on site.

By bus from Ashbourne

There is no bus service.

By bike or on foot

Its walkable from Ashbourne but not a great walk. The best way is by bike - it is an easy 10 mile round trip along Sides Lane from Clifton village which is a nice quiet road without hills.
