The Old Dairy sits within a private development of three barns conversions off Ward's Lane on the edge of Stanton by Bridge. The village is located 1.5 miles north of the delightful market town of Melbourne and five miles south of Derby. It is located at the southern end of Swarkestone Bridge - a renowned causeway dating from the early 1200's. The village includes a number of attractive Georgian houses, and the small parish Church of St Michael.
Road communication links in the area are excellent with Birmingham, Leicester, Derby and Nottingham all within commuting distance. Rail links and East Midlands Airport are also within easy reach. The area offers a wide range of sporting facilities including sailing clubs at Swarkestone (on the edge of the village), Foremark Reservoir and Staunton Harold Reservoir, and motor racing at Donington Park. The Peak District National Park, with superb walks is easily accessible from Stanton By Bridge.
A great choice of public footpaths and bridleways can be accessed from Stanton By Bridge (and Wards Lane itself) leading across the adjoining countryside with some providing access to the River Trent as well as Melbourne. Melbourne was recorded in the Domesday Book and saw considerable expansion during Georgian times. The town has a great range of independent shops, restaurants, pubs and a supermarket, along with a leisure centre, and recreation ground.

The sitting room itself is well proportioned and also has a glazed door leading out onto the patio area which provides plenty of natural light.
