Description

A former coach house with views over open countryside. Facilities include a private hot tub and shared use of a swimming pool and games room!

‘‘...imbued with noble history...set in a dramatic and varied landscape...’’

Take a beautiful Peak District National Park setting, just 3½ miles from Bakewell, add a historic hall (first recorded in the Domesday Book), and an ancient cluster of listed buildings converted to form superb holiday cottage accommodation....and the result is the captivating blend that is Harthill Hall. Nestling in 14 acres of grounds on an upland called Priest’s Hill with excellent walking available from the doorstep, the properties have the use of an extensive range of leisure facilities including an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, solarium and treatment rooms. Noble names have woven the threads of the hall’s long history including Henry de Ferrers, the Cokaynes and the Harthills. Henry VIII is also believed to have stayed at the hall.
It was here in 1259 that Sir Richard de Hartle was issued a Papal Bull by Pope Alexander II, allowing him to appoint his own chaplain. The chapel ceased its functions as a place of worship in 1546 and now takes the form of The Chapel and Hartle Cottage. The eight cottages are furnished with antiques and surround a medieval cobbled courtyard. They all retain a wealth of original features including thick stone walls, large oak beams, mullion windows and flagstone floors. Derbyshire’s bustling market towns, villages, hills, dales and rivers offer majestic scenery, and a rich variety of customs. Boasting a varied and beautiful landscape, they offer a blend of heritage, history and family attractions. The beautiful market town of Bakewell (3½ miles) is situated on the River Wye, crossed by a 13th-century five-arched bridge which has coffee shops and restaurants. Within easy reach are Matlock, Hall Leys Park, Chesterfield, Alfreton and Buxton. National Trust properties and gardens nearby include Riley Graves, Longshaw, Mam Tor, South Peak, Dovedale, Hardwick Hall and Kedleston Hall. Close by are both Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall. Games room with free wireless internet connection (1gb per day per device). Golf and horse riding are available within 5 miles. Shop 3½ miles, pub 1 mile.

A former coach house with large glazed views over open countryside. Large living room with sofa bed (for +2) and views of countryside.

    Excellent and beautiful venue. Could have done with some more kitchen implements or for it to be a bit more obvious where they were (we spent an age trying to find the can opener!). Some of the crockery and pans were a bit dated and it would benefit from some more non stick frying pans and soap in every bathroom. Perhaps a list of where the items are might help. The hot tub was fantastic and we liked the privacy of the cottage on the site.

    Had a lovely time staying here, beautiful location with a well kitted out property. Everything was kept at a high standard and having our own hot tub was great as the pool was often booked out. Would definitely recommend staying here.

    Excellent location, very well equipped property, loved the hot tub! The only problem that we encountered was that the bathroom door on the first floor did not shut properly. I'm sure that this will be fixed for future residents.

    We had a great time and was pleasantly surprised with the property after reading some of the reviews and after receiving the rather less than welcoming "welcome pack" email, (which had really taken the edge off the excitement for the trip) however the onsite staff were really nice, helpful and friendly. Loved the pool and the hot tub and made full use of both. The only real negative that we found, (other than the wording of the aforementioned email) was that the bathrooms are not up to spec for the capacity of the property and definitely for the amount of money you pay, they need updating and another shower needs to go into the upstairs bathroom.

    Deferres was in a great location. Villages and shops were a 10min drive and walks were very local. My only little comment would be that there was only one shower for 10 adults. Although there was two baths it would have been a lot more efficient if both baths had showers installed. The hot tub was great with lovely views,a quiet surrounding at some points we thought we were completely on our own. We did have an issue with the boiler but this was resolved extremely quick.

    Perfect location to meet up and spend a fab birthday weekend with friends! Who wouldn’t enjoy a hot tub in the snow!! It would have been great if there was a little more up-to-date information included at the accommodation regarding the surrounding area / things to do and directions from the property rather than the local towns - however this would not put me off returning and we already have our next visit planned!

    It desparately needs a second shower in the upstairs bathroom for the capacity of 10. There should also be a gernerous supply of hot water. The oven was only working on one side and needed a thorough clean. The lighting in the downstairs bedroom was not working crrectly msking it particularly gloomy.Apart from those setbacks the propery has the potential to be outstanding with its spectacular views and private hot tub. With these minor amendments we would not hesitate to return to de ferrers.
