Description

Located in a quiet backwater of the pretty Peak District village of Baslow, Little Hoot adjoins the owner’s home and comes complete with a superb walled roof terrace offering spectacular, breathtaking views over to the Chatsworth Estate and beyond. Perfect for those wanting to explore the local area on foot, there are gates from the roof terrace which lead directly to a mature woodland, with immediate walks leading to Chatsworth Park, Baslow Edge, Birchen Edge and Yeld Wood.
Baslow village itself is much sought after, being located on the doorstep of the magnificent Chatsworth Estate, and benefiting from a well-stocked village shop, tearooms, good local pubs serving food and even a Michelin starred restaurant. Set in the heart of the Peak District National Park, the village is surrounded by magnificent countryside, and other pretty unspoilt towns and villages. The fascinating ‘plague village’ of Eyam can be reached in around 10 minutes, as can the thriving market town of Bakewell. Matlock and Matlock Bath, with its cable car ride to the Heights of Abraham, are just 20 minutes away, and the spa town of Buxton 30 minutes. For thrill seekers, Britain’s premier theme park, Alton Towers can be reached in around 50 minutes. Shop ¼ mile, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

About the local area

The River Wye follows the Wye Valley, rising above Buxton flowing eastward through Bakewell before finally joining the Derwent at Rowsley. This is perhaps Derbyshire's prettiest rivers with its limestone uplands and superb dales.

At Monsal Dale the valley widens, the steep sided Monsal Head provides spectacular views over the valley before the river reaches Ashford-in-the-Water, passing beneath what was a medieval packhorse bridge and then again at Bakewell where there is a 13th century bridge with five gothic arches before reaching Haddon Hall.

The old market town of Buxton nestles in the Derbyshire hills and at a height of 1,000 feet above sea level it is one of England's highest towns. Its fame as a health spa dates back to Roman times.

Bakewell has an equally ancient past being mentioned in the Doomsday Book and probably also occupied by the Romans. This beautiful, small market town is situated on the River Wye and has many pleasant walks from the bridge to the town centre where there are many shops, pubs and restaurants and one of the oldest markets in the area, dating back to 1300. The renowned Bakewell Show takes place on the first Wednesday and Thursday of August, attracting both the farming community and visitors from all over the region and beyond.

Apart from the many charming Peak District villages that can be found throughout the Wye Valley other nearby places of interest includes Chatsworth House, home of the Dukes of Devonshire and the grandest stately house in the region and Haddon Hall, a medieval manor house and home to the Dukes of Rutland situated on the River Wye.
