Description

Situated in the pretty and popular village of Birchover, this listed, detached, Georgian house boasts super views over the local countryside and provides the perfect base to relax and enjoy this beautiful corner of England. Bradley Hall has retained many of its original features including flagstone and wooden floors, mullion windows and shutters. A south-facing garden completes this lovely property, and also makes the ideal place for relaxing with a glass of wine or al-fresco dining in the warm, balmy summer evenings. There is also a decked area complete with 8-seater hot tub and fire pit.

The village is ringed by rocks and Tors and is set in one the of the most stunning parts of the Peak District. Excellent walking can be found from the doorstep and for nature lovers, excellent birdwatching can be found in the surrounding areas. For days out, the magnificent stately homes, including the beautiful Chatsworth House (8 miles) and Haddon Hall (4 miles) are an absolute must see, whilst a little further afield, but well worth a visit are the NT properties of Hardwick Hall, Sudbury Hall and Stainsby Mill. Ilam Park - running alongside the River Manifold with spectacular views towards Dovedale, and High Peak Estate - a vast area of outstanding walking country also come under NT ownership and provide wonderful walking opportunities.

For water sport enthusiasts, Carsington Water is within easy reach, with sailing, wind-surfing and canoeing all available. Shop 500 yards.

Downriver lies Matlock Bath. This historic village is set in a steep-sided limestone gorge with whitewashed cottages perched along the hill side. Nearer the river a more `touristy' atmosphere prevails with its many attractions from museums and cafes to souvenir shops. On the western side of the gorge is the Heights of Abraham which is popular with visitors due to its superb views and amenities, including restaurant, picnic area and caf�. A cable car can be taken to the top from Matlock Bath railway station.

Between Matlock and Matlock Bath is High Tor, a broad limestone cliff rising some 400 feet above the River Derwent. Around High Tor there is a network of paths suitable for exploring the area and from which to experience the spectacular views. In the grounds below there are refreshment facilities, picnic areas, children's playground, wooded walks and two caverns.

To the south is the market town of Wirksworth, which is one of the oldest towns in the area, with a central marketplace in which markets have been held since the reign of Edward I.
