Come together with friends and family to this spacious holiday retreat full of character and stylish fixtures and fittings providing the perfect base to explore the Peak District National Park.

Nestled on the cusp of the Peak District National Park within the pretty village of Cromford, this attractive property sleeps eight and is ideal for families with a love of the outdoors. Elegant and spacious with quirky details throughout, your stylish accommodation is excellently located for navigating the surrounding countryside and enjoying top local attractions such as Gulliver’s Kingdom and Crich Tramway Village 4 miles away. For walkers, there are three iconic routes accessible within 18.5 miles, and when the day is done your crackling wood burner provides a soothing atmosphere for relaxing with a favourite tipple.

 

Characterised by flagstone floors, Art Deco-style features and two wood burners, the interiors of your comfortable base provide a welcoming retreat for your special holiday. The tastefully decorated kitchen is the hub of the home with a breakfast bar for simple drinks and sharing platters of deli meats and local cheese. Sip your first coffee of the day and rustle up a breakfast of kings, and of an evening, dinner is a glamorous affair in the dining room with its ample seating, roaring wood burner and high ceilings. Light the second wood burner in the lounge and sink into the sofas to watch TV, or take your nightcap up to the fabulous bathroom to have a pamper session in the freestanding bath. There are three beautifully styled bedrooms to choose from, and right next door a separate outbuilding offers a further king-size bedroom with its own en-suite shower room. Your outside space is a treat with a patio, BBQ and seating, large lawn and you’ll also find off-road parking for six cars. For the ultimate indulgence, there is a private hot tub for stargazing over glasses of something fizzy and delicious.

We had a great time at this holiday home. The hot tub made our evenings so much more relaxing after some very long dog-walking days over the Peaks. The rooms were ample and very well maintained and quite luxurious. and the beds are very comfortable. The location was super, with hills and walks right on our doorstep.

A lovely spacious property, well positioned for exploring the Peak District. All the rooms are a good size and it can accommodate 8 adults easily. The only down side is the location of the house which is very close to the main A6 and therefore the traffic noise does have an impact.

Great location for dog walks from the door in stunning woodlands (but house is right next to busy / noisy A road) Lovely bathrooms / kitchen (but property rather dark inside) Good spot to explore the Dales, and Cromford itself is really great. Couple of issues on arrival, quickly sorted out.
