These attractive stone holiday cottages enjoy their own driveways and pretty, lawned gardens. Green Farm Cottage, (ref RPP6), adjoins the owners’ 17th-century farmhouse, and Green Farm Stables (ref RFFQ), stands detached. Tucked away down a little lane, they lie 500 yards from the heart of the attractive old village of Hognaston, which stands on a hillside overlooked by Hognaston Wynn. Many houses in the village date back to the 17th and 18th century, as does the pub. Within walking distance is beautiful Carsington Water, offering superb water sports, sailing and bike hire facilities with an area devoted to wildlife along with cycle and walking trails.

Park Hall Manor Ref: RVV2

This Grade II listed manor house is set within 14 acres of natural grounds, together with the occupied adjoining servants’ wing, and has been sympathetically converted, retaining many original features to provide comfortable accommodation for families wishing to meet up for that special family occasion, and wi-fi is available in the living room.
Perfectly situated just off the main road between Glossop and Chapel-en-le-Frith, the pretty hamlet of Little Hayfield provides an ideal base for walking or touring all the Peak District has to offer. In the village, Tony Warren created the television series Coronation Street and the village is now home to the annual Hayfield sheepdog trials and country show which takes place in September each year. Situated just 1 mile from the charming village of Hayfield in the narrow valley of the River Sett, it is surrounded by some of the wildest hills in the Dark Peak, a popular base for exploring the Sett Valley Trail and walking on Kinder Scout. For many years Kinder was barred to walkers, being preserved as a grouse moor until interrupted in 1932 by the famous Kinder Scout Mass Trespass! There are excellent walks literally from the door and a good variety of traditional pubs within walking distance. Close by and just a short drive away are the caverns around Castleton, the plague village of Eyam, the popular walking village of Edale and the attractive village of Hope.
For guests who enjoy visiting stately homes and gardens, there are several notable places to visit in the area. Just 3½ miles from Bakewell, the spectacular Chatsworth House is set in extensive parkland with a backdrop of wooded, rocky hills leading to heather moorland. The house itself contains a collection of paintings, furniture, old master drawings, neoclassical sculpture, books and other artefacts. It was built in the 17th century by the first duke of Devonshire and has been in the family ever since. Both the house and grounds (redesigned by Capability Brown) are open to the public and they make for a memorable day out. The small estate village of Edensor is also worth a visit; it was remodelled by the sixth duke for his employees.
Impressive Haddon Hall is another stately home to visit. Originally dating from the 12th century, it is a fortified medieval manor house which has featured in many films and TV programmes, including the BBC’s 2006 production of Jane Eyre and the 2005 film Pride and Prejudice. It has a fine collection of English, Flemish and French tapestries. A visit to the stately homes in the area would not be complete without seeing Lyme Hall in Disley - a fine, Italianate house which featured as the home of Mr D’Arcy in the BBC’s adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.
The towns of Buxton, Bakewell, Glossop and Holmfirth (setting for Last of the Summer Wine) are all an easy drive, as is Manchester with its excellent shopping. Shops 1½ miles, pub ¼ mile.

This property is close to the 2014 Tour de France route, come and experience the spectacular scenery for yourself and follow in the trail of some true cycling legends.

"Fine cottages and facilities – in a county of unspoilt landscapes, deep dales and winding rivers . . ."

This fine courtyard of old stone barns was part of a working farm, but has now been sensitively converted to offer sixteen beautifully furnished and well-equipped cottages, four of which are featured here.

This truly magnificent famhouse is perched on the edge of the beautiful Manifold Valley, famed for its lime-stone crags and caves. Approached by a farm drive, nestling in a secluded spot, it enjoys breathtaking valley views.

‘‘...imbued with noble history...set in a dramatic and varied landscape...’’

Take a beautiful Peak District National Park setting, just 3½ miles from Bakewell, add a historic hall (first recorded in the Domesday Book), and an ancient cluster of listed buildings converted to form superb holiday cottage accommodation....and the result is the captivating blend that is Harthill Hall. Nestling in 14 acres of grounds on an upland called Priest’s Hill with excellent walking available from the doorstep, the properties have the use of an extensive range of leisure facilities including an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, solarium and treatment rooms. Noble names have woven the threads of the hall’s long history including Henry de Ferrers, the Cokaynes and the Harthills. Henry VIII is also believed to have stayed at the hall.
It was here in 1259 that Sir Richard de Hartle was issued a Papal Bull by Pope Alexander II, allowing him to appoint his own chaplain. The chapel ceased its functions as a place of worship in 1546 and now takes the form of The Chapel and Hartle Cottage. The eight cottages are furnished with antiques and surround a medieval cobbled courtyard. They all retain a wealth of original features including thick stone walls, large oak beams, mullion windows and flagstone floors. Derbyshire’s bustling market towns, villages, hills, dales and rivers offer majestic scenery, and a rich variety of customs. Boasting a varied and beautiful landscape, they offer a blend of heritage, history and family attractions. The beautiful market town of Bakewell (3½ miles) is situated on the River Wye, crossed by a 13th-century five-arched bridge which has coffee shops and restaurants. Within easy reach are Matlock, Hall Leys Park, Chesterfield, Alfreton and Buxton. National Trust properties and gardens nearby include Riley Graves, Longshaw, Mam Tor, South Peak, Dovedale, Hardwick Hall and Kedleston Hall. Close by are both Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall.
