This fairy tale, stone-built, traditional detached cottage can be found tucked away in a prime position within the heart of Hathersage. Surrounded by gardens and greenery, the cottage itself has been fully renovated throughout and includes a beautiful spacious kitchen/dining room and cosy lounge complete with wood burner. Hathersage itself is an attractive village with a range of pubs, shops and cafes, and the surprising luxury of an outdoor heated swimming pool (summer opening only) just two minutes’ walk from the property. Continually buzzing with climbing, walking and cycling enthusiasts alike, Hathersage lies above the River Derwent, and has historical associations with both Robin Hood and Charlotte Bronte. The famous authoress was inspired to write Jane Eyre whilst staying at the Hathersage vicarage, and took the name of local Eyre family (of whom the owners of Tantivy House are descendants) for her heroine. North Lees Hall, a local Elizabethan manor house, was the inspiration for the home of Mr Rochester. Beyond Hathersage, the magnificent historic houses of Chatsworth House (the setting for Mr Darcy’s home Pemberley in Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice) and Haddon Hall can be reached in under 30 minutes, as can the popular market town of Bakewell, home of the famous Bakewell Pudding. You can walk the Charlotte Brontë Literature Trail, taking in the aforementioned North Lees Manor, visit the oversized grave of Robin Hood’s sidekick, Little John, or go fishing on Ladybower Reservoir just two miles away in Bamford. The beautiful Hope Valley scenery and honeypot village of Castleton is just a 10-minute drive, and the cities of Sheffield and Manchester can be reached on a direct train from Hathersage train station. For thrill seekers, Alton Towers can be reached in around an hour’s drive.

About the local area

Located within The Peak District National Park, this area includes Winnatt's Pass and Mam Tor in the west, the Edale Valley where the famous Pennine Way starts, Ladybower Reservoir where they filmed `The Dambusters' and south following the River Derwent to Hathersage.

The Hope Valley has some of the prettiest villages in the Peak District including Bamford close to Ladybower and Derwent Reservoirs, Hope at the junction of the River Noe and Peakshole Water where the Edale Valley joins the Hope Valley and Castleton, famous for Peveril Castle and surrounded by Mam Tor, Winnats Gorge and Cave Dale.

Castleton is one of the most popular and pretty villages in the Peak District. Set in the midst of beautiful scenery it has lovely walks and a ruined Norman castle; Peveril Castle first built in 1080. Around the village square are some fine old cottages, pubs and the church. The natural caverns of Cave Dale and Peak Dale are reached from the top of the main square and several shops in the village sell `Blue John' (a local Fluorspar), the ideal holiday souvenir.

Visitors can leave the car behind and travel the length of the Hope Valley by train; The Hope Valley scenic railway stops at Grindleford, Hathersage, Bamford, Hope and Edale villages.

Like much of Peak District this area is popular with walkers, of particular note is Mam Tor, with its hill fort and wonderful views in all directions and of course the Pennine Way.
