Description

Set on the owner’s 31-acre stud farm surrounded by open countryside, right on the edge of the Peak District National Park, this beautifully and thoughtfully renovated detached barn conversion has hand-painted silk curtains that adorn the windows and bedrooms, which are complete with their own en-suite bathrooms, oversized beds and generous sized televisions. Laura Ashley furniture completes the living area and a bespoke handmade kitchen filled with Portmeirion crockery has been fitted around a beautiful Lacanche cooking range. Directly facing the Cordwell Valley with its wild deer, this holiday property benefits from stunning unrivalled countryside views and offers gentle walks through rolling farmland and country lanes direct from the door and through the property’s footpaths. Outside of the property, the city of Sheffield and town of Chesterfield can both be reached within 20 minutes, as can the hugely popular tourist destinations of Bakewell, Tideswell and Castleton, with their markets, cafés, and craft shops. Chatsworth Estate is a mere 10-minute drive with the magnificent historic houses of Eyam Hall, Hardwick Hall and Haddon Hall just a further 10 minutes. Shop 1¼ miles and pub 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.
