‘‘...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.

    The water pressure needs looking at as there is no pressure on the upper floors when the showers are being used on the ground floor, possibly need a booster pump to the whole of the house, I was showering in the pool house. otherwise an enjoyable stay.

    Scenery stunning, views exceptional, kitchen, utensils etc fine. Bedrooms good but not as seen on photos. Ensuites small but every thing very clean. Games room disappointing. Overall very satisfying.

    Our family had a lovely, enjoyable 3 nights in the barn.It was good value for money when you factor in the out door hot tub and private use of the indoor pool.

    Beautiful location, 2 large bedrooms with 4 smaller ones all en suite. Beds a little too short and some of them needed to be replaced as there was no support, and kept hitting shins on the frame in bedroom 3. We used this as a base and were out everyday doing different activities so didn't spend a huge amount of time in the accommodation but the views were spectacular. Overall a lovely place and would go back.

    Excellent weekend break. Not the best sound insulation so hard to get kids to sleep when you're in the living area and rather tight in the kitchen when at full capacity but we were only there for the weekend so didn't matter. Pool & hot tub were awesome and lovely grounds for the kids to play.

    We stayed here as a family group of 12 adults and 2 children. The accommodation is in a great location, ideal for exploring the surrounding area and has plenty of parking with lovely views and lots of areas for children to run around quite safely. The accommodation is fairly spacious (nice large lounge area with lovely window). The kitchen is well equipped, particularly in terms of utensils, crockery, cutlery, etc. However, it is on the small size given the size of the property and any more than 2 people in the area causes a bit of a problem. We felt that the games room would have been better utilised as the kitchen/dining area really. Three of the bedrooms are a very good size but the other 3 are quite small and seem more suited to children. However, for a long weekend they were absolutely fine. The general opinion was that the beds were very comfortable. Only one pillow per person though so had to use the cushions on the bed. We liked the fact that each room had an en-suite but to be honest they all needed some TLC. The toilets and basins seemed new but the shower cubicles had all seen better days with chipped tiles. As for the floor tiling it was atrocious. It looked like someone had put some tiles down and then thrown some grout into the area and walked around on it. Our en-suite was very very small but, again, it was fine for a weekend stay. There was plenty of hot water and water pressure was very good providing that not everyone was showering at once. We liked having the use of the pool and the hot tub was a nice addition. The accommodation advertises free robes, slippers and pool towels. However, three of the rooms were missing robes and slippers (weren't particularly bothered about this but if they are advertised it would be nice to have them) and there were only 2 pool towels when we arrived. However, Housekeeping did provide these as soon as I contacted them. The complimentary Prosecco and chocolates are a nice touch. The barn was more than adequately heated and we had to turn it off as it was too warm during our stay. We all felt that the 'rules' were somewhat stringent and there was constant concern that a minor transgression would result in us (or me as the booker of the accommodation) losing the security deposit. For example, one of the instructions basically said that the hot tub would be 'condemned' if we were found not to be using it correctly, which seemed a bit OTT. A stair gate would be useful for those bookings with children as the stairs were quite steep for youngsters and anyone with mobility problems. On the whole it was a lovely weekend in a fantastic location.

    Beautiful location,lovely property,with excellent facilities.I would have liked a bit more detail on the size & layout of the bedrooms so that I could have picked in which room to have the bunk erected.The one that had been used wasn't suitable as it was right by the living area & therefore noisy for children going to bed early.Otherwise it was a really lovely place to stay.
