Property code: 72814

This imposing house, built in 1802 and sensitively restored in 2018 provides a classic period property with 21st century amenities and a truly unique holiday home for friends and families to get together.

With a sweeping staircase, generous rooms, and stunning original features throughout, this restored Georgian house offers an elegant space to unwind and entertain. Set in 30 acres of woodland in meadows on the edge of the Peak District National Park, here you can enjoy a finer taste of countryside living. Modern amenities, including a projector to create your own cinema room, give this home a unique old-meets-new aesthetic that's sure to delight guests of any age. Sleeping 18 across eight airy bedrooms – one on the ground floor – there is plenty of space for the whole family or a group of friends.

Gather in the kitchen, where a central marble island provides a great space for the whole group to congregate and chat while any chefs in the party show off their culinary skills. There's also a smaller butler's kitchen hidden in a quiet corner of the property – great if two families are holidaying together and would like some time apart. Dine altogether at the kitchen table looking out over the garden, or step through to the classic dining room, where a fine, original shell and leaf trompe l'oeil motif has been discovered by the owners during careful renovations, offering a true taste of history. Put your feet up and relax in the light and peaceful drawing room, snuggling beside the wood burner on a cool evening as you enjoy the beautiful views over the grounds, or retire to the lounge with its snooker table. There's even a snug on the first floor with table football and a double sofa bed, which makes for a fun kids' room. On summer days and warmer evenings, head outside and enjoy the sun instead. Make use of the croquet lawn or play garden games on the gentle slopes. Savour an al fresco feast on the patio as you look over the garden and woodland. Discover the two ponds within the mature grounds; parents must always supervise their children when outside. There is ample off-road parking.

Explore the picturesque Holme Valley, which boasts fine walks and mountain biking on its doorstep. Holmfirth, 4.5 miles away, is well worth a visit. This is well known as the location for the popular BBC series Last of the Summer Wine; it is also home to a wide range of great eateries and pubs that are popular with both locals and visitors.

Plan trips into Halifax, 11.5 miles away. Halifax is a thriving market town and was once the centre of the wool trade in Victorian England. This blessed the town with wealth and good fortune. Many of the opulent buildings and monuments from this time can still be seen as you walk around. These include Piece Hall, a magnificent Georgian building, which was once the place where weavers sold their cloth. Nowadays, it’s a fabulous place to grab a tasty bite to eat or peruse the independent shops and boutiques, as well as catch some outdoor performances.

Other impressive buildings include Halifax Minster, the town’s gothic church; the Grade II-listed Halifax Town Hall, designed by Charles Barry, who also designed the Houses of Parliament and Shibden Hall, a 15th-century historic home surrounded by a glorious park. The parkland is an excellent place to spend a day, walking beside the pretty flowerbeds, rowing across the Mere or taking the children to ride on the miniature train. Kids will also love the National Children’s Museum, Eureka!, which is sure to capture their imaginations with its 400 interactive exhibits.

If you enjoy food, make sure you visit Halifax’s Borough Market, which is a stunning Grade II-listed building, hosting an award-winning covered market throughout the week. Sample some local produce and pick up some tasty treat to enjoy back at your luxury mansion.

It has all modern comforts one could wish for (modern kitchen, bathrooms etc) while retaining all the charm of the original early 19th century house. The owners went through considerable trouble to make us feel welcome and to make our stay very enjoyable.
