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


A 13th-century building with medieval stonework located close to Bakewell. 14 acres of grounds, leisure facilities 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.

    The cottage as a whole was a lot bigger than expected and had all the necessary mod cons (including dishwasher!) and was warm and cosy. The rooms, on the other hand, were very small and with the cot in the room it felt very tight. The shower was appalling (luke warm and no power). The couches were very uncomfortable and just quite hideous, really. But the beds were very comfortable and everything was very clean. The sauna took 15 minutes to become functional & the indoor swimming pool was freezing. Still, nice to have the option of these on site. The games room was a real let down - cold, small and old/broken equipment. We felt very safe and left our cottage unlocked when we went out. Ours seemed to be the only cottage that didn't have a hot tub though! Disappointing. Location is brilliant - very close to Bakewell and Buxton; beautiful setting; lovely walks. It really was a treat and we loved our stay. I would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a stone cottage getaway (but choose one with a hot tub!!)
