‘‘...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.

    We had a lovely family filled few days here with ages from grandparents, children and young grandchildren. Everyone had a great time. The hot tub and indoor pool were a great hit. It was great that you could block an hour a day for sole use of the pool and the cottage was very well equipped and comfortable. It was obvious that it was well looked after. Would definitely return.

    Excellent venue really enjoyed our weekend only downside was the oven as it took double the cooking time Asda delivered which was fab & although you were next to people it still felt private

    Lots to like but lots that needs work too, the decor was very dated and shabby in places, pots and pans were not of a suitable size for no of occupants. There were an excessive number of do's and don'ts written in mixture of passive aggressive and just plain aggressive. On the plus side the location was beautiful, the beds were super comfortable, the hot tub was a real treat, sadly the pool was too small to be of real benefit but it was nice to have. Walking in the area was stunning and it made a lovely location for a family get together - we had mentioned a special birthday and were greeted with wine and biscuits which was a lovely treat!Overall we enjoyed it but we just expected a much higher standard of finish. especially given the price we paid!

    Amazing accommodation with great views, peace and quiet, and a relaxing atmosphere. Very friendly and considerate staff and the facilities are top notch. Very clean on arrival with an amazing birthday surprise waiting.

    Great place to stay and the most comfortable bed...ever! Beautiful scenery, it's great that you can book exclusive use of the pool. Would visit again.

    Although we enjoyed our stay, this was due to the company more so than the cottage. The cottage was very dated and looked as if it was in dire need of sprucing up. In particular, one shower (and that was an over the bath type) for the whole property is not sufficient for a large group. The only other bath did not have a showerhead attachment so you could not even wash your hair whilst having a bath. The accommodation was very small for our party of 7 plus dogs, so not sure how it would fare with 10. One bedroom was damp and cold the whole stay. All the bedrooms were on the small size compared to what we're used to. Only one bedroom had a wardrobe, so storing clothes was an issue. Our stay was not helped by our first night adventure. One of our small dogs escaped through the fence (it was dark when we got there so we could not see that small dogs could get out under the fence) of our 'enclosure'. All seven of us were looking for him, when the owner of the property opposite said 'well I hope he's not on our property, this is private land' - despite their gate being open! Very welcoming I must say. We did find the dog after half an hour of looking but this soured things from the start. On a good note, the hot tub was very good, and maintained throughout our stay, so was always ready to jump into, without any work from ourselves. The WIFI allowance was laughable though. You get a small allowance (1GB I think) per device per day. OK if you're just browsing facebook. Not good if you're working on your laptop. Even worse of you wanted to watch a match on SkyGo (as there is no satellite TV) - lasted about 10 minutes, then couldn't get onto WIFI for a day. We've stayed in a cottage the last few years over Christmas, and stayed in some very nice places. Perhaps we've been spoiled. However, this was definitely not up to the standard of previous cottages. All in all, a rather disappointing experience.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We’re sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy your holiday with us. On your arrival the property was just as described when you made your booking, the number of bathrooms and facilities with in them, the free of charge internet provided is brought in via satellite and therefore has to have some limit on this which is 1GB per device / not person per day, most guests have at least 2 devices and find this to be more than ample. I was not onsite for the duration of your stay but apparently the neighbour was upset due to you allowing your dog to escape and ignoring the Private sign on her gate, most guests would check the boundary before leaving their dog unaccompanied in a strange garden. All 4 bedrooms have either a wardrobe or hanging rails with 10 hangers and a chest of drawers. Having checked our call out log for the duration of your stay we did not received a call all week regarding one of bedrooms being cold we would have been more than happy to provide an additional heater, the only call received was to fix a broken dishwasher on New Years Eve which we managed to get an engineer to to find out it had been overloaded.
