Description

Located on the banks of the River Dane in the tiny hamlet of Gradbach, this superb farmhouse complete with a private hot tub, can be found in an unspoilt corner of the Peak District National Park, close to the borders of Staffordshire, Derbyshire and Cheshire. It is within the secluded grounds of an 18th century stone built silk mill. Both the former mill and farmhouse are steeped in history, with a quote dating back to the 1700’s describing the two ancient buildings as ‘being in one of the most delightful and romantic settings in the valley’. Surrounded by 16 acres the setting is indeed spectacular and the accommodation pays justice to this. With all bedrooms en-suite, a stylish farmhouse kitchen with wood burner and range cooker and a beautiful oak beamed lounge the result is warm, comfortable and spacious. To make your stay as relaxing as possible packed lunches, pre-prepared dinner options (ready to cook), breakfast baskets and pizza and drink packages are available. Please book in advance with the owner with at least 7 days’ notice.
The Gritstone Roaches, one of the UK’s premier climbing destinations and the wonderful hidden gem of Lud Church with its fantastic myth and legend, are also just a stones’ throw away. The spa town of Buxton with its magnificent architecture, shops, swimming pool and Opera House is just 20 minutes away, and the other Peak District towns and villages such as Bakewell, Tideswell and Hartington can all be reached within around half an hour. Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and the beautiful honeypot village of Castleton are around 40 minutes away, and the National Trusts Quarry Bank Mill, Little Morton Hall, Tatton Park and Biddulph Grange are all nearby. Finally for those thrillseekers Matlock with its cable car to the Heights of Abraham can be reached in around 45 minutes and Alton Towers in around half an hour.

About the local area

Leek is the principal town of the Staffordshire Moorlands on the south western edge of the Peak District National Park, situated in an elevated position by the River Churnet. The town has a long history being mentioned in the Doomsday Book, but it certainly pre-dates this.

In the late 18th and 19th centuries the town grew to become a centre of silk weaving and several mills were built at this time, however nothing now remains of the silk industry in Leek today. The town has a bustling shopping centre and a market every Wednesday and provides an excellent base from which to explore the south and western Peak District.

To the north within the Peak District National Park is an area of rock and heather called The Roaches, with Hen Cloud and Ramshaw Rocks, forming a gritstone escarpment which marks the south western edge of the national park. The Roaches consist of two edges, a lower and upper tier, with rock-steps connecting them. Hen Cloud is an imposing solitary edge which rises steeply from the ground. This whole area is well known to walkers and rock climbers, providing some of the best gritstone climbing in the country.
