Tempting though it might be to spend your whole break chilling out at this ultra-stylish retreat, there’s a huge choice of things to do to suit all ages and tastes. Take the footpath that passes through the land directly onto Carsington Water first thing in the morning and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the waterside walks. Try your hand at windsurfing, canoeing and fishing, or, for those who like dry land, push your limits on an 8-mile mountain bike course. You will also find an award-winning restaurant, a playground, shops, four bird hides and miles of footpaths and bridleways to explore nearby. There is a local village pub in Kirk Ireton, which dates back to the 18th century and offers a friendly welcome. Make sure you visit pretty towns and villages such as Matlock Bath, Ashbourne, Bakewell and Buxton, all of which boast an array of shops and restaurants, and head into the nearby market town of Wirksworth to enjoy the interesting architecture and local independant shops.

Step in through the floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors and take in the beautiful kitchen/diner with a huge vaulted ceiling. The kitchen is bright, contemporary and open-plan, offering an electric double oven, induction hob, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Come together around the kitchen island and plan the day ahead, watch the Smart TV or enjoy a relaxing dinner at the nearby dining table. The utility space houses the washing machine and tumble dryer. Take off your shoes and enjoy the underfloor heating as you wander through to the lounge with comfy seating and Smart TV. Downstairs is a handy double bedroom with en-suite shower and WC. Upstairs, there's a master bedroom with a super-king-size bed and an en-suite bathroom with a shower, WC and freestanding bath with countryside views. There's also a king-size bedroom and a twin bedroom, both of which share a shower room with shower and WC.

Outside, you'll find a beautiful patio and loungers surrounded by trees. This is a wonderful place to enjoy summer evenings dining alfresco. There is off-road parking for four cars. The property is situated on the owners grounds and their dogs and cats may make an appearance. There is a helicopter pad for guests wanting to arrive in style or plan pleasure trips for a special occasion.
