Melbourne


Melbourne (the name means 'mill on the brook' or 'a mill stream') is a small attractive Georgian market town in a delightful part of South Derbyshire set in rolling countryside and is situated midway between the major city of Derby in the north and the bustling town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch in the south. The town contains a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants and there are several good schools in the area. The property has good access to the A50, the M1 and M42 motorways, making it within easy reach of many Midland towns and cities.
