English Country Cottages

From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


A 13th-century building dating from 1296 nestled in 14 acres of grounds with a private hot tub and excellent walks from the door.

‘‘...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 enjoyed staying at the Chapel, mostmy. It was tidy and had a lot of character. However, even though it was advertised as a dog friendly property, we were glad we changed our mind about taking our dog. The advertised "off lead exercise area" wasn't there. The dog would have to be kept in her kennel as there were no stair gates provided. The property is just not suitable for dogs, unless the dog is exceptionally well behaved perhaps? A few things you might want to sort out! Please could you provide oven gloves as a couple of us managed to get burnt whilst cooking. The nightlight on the landing (a torch) isn't working so we had to keep the lights on all night for our children to go to the toilet as the house is very dark inside. The shower curtain in the main family bathroom isn't protecting the floor from getting wet as the shower hose is outside of the bath area. The showers in both bathrooms are terrible and very slow. The mattresses in both double bedrooms are extremely uncomfortable. Both ladies in our group had back problems and after sleeping on those mattresses for a week, they got worse. It might be time to invest in better quality ones, especially as the property rental price is rather high. The two single beds are on a short size and should probably be advertised as children's beds as none of the adults in our party would be able to sleep in them comfortably. The floors! We appreciate it's an old property but gosh, they are noisy?! Especially on the stairs? The pool water was rather dirty. I don't think anyone ever had a shower before entering? In the time we were there, we didn't see it being cleaned? We found hairs floating and stuck to the sides which was quite disgusting. The sauna was cold and the fact that the door didn't shut properly, probably didn't help? That was not enjoyable and therefore not useable. All in all, the property has a lot of potential and it's beautiful, but could be managed better and it would be excellent if those niggles were dealt with.

    Beautifull cottage with stunning character. Fab facilities including private hot tub, swimming pool onsite which you could hire for free at hourly slots, there's also a small spa onsite so we booked a pamper party for our last night as a treat which was lovely. The only negative point was that you could only use the hot tub till 9pm which isn't very late for a group of girls and also on our last night the owners came to put the filter in the hot tub after we had just got out at 9pm so we felt that this was an invasion of our privacy to be honest. On the whole though would def go back it was a beautifull setting & local area.
