English Country Cottages

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


Quirky accommodation with splendid four poster bed and private hot tub. A cosy retreat for two with countryside views and good on-site facilities.

‘‘...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.

Living/dining room with slate floor, beams and galley-style kitchen with slate floor. Double bedroom with four-poster bed. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

    Henry's Haunt is a lovely little cottage in a beautiful setting. Looking out the back you can see fields of cows (and a pony) and an uninterrupted view of the countryside. The hot tub is in a little area at the back of the cottage, there is no shelter and you have to walk down some stone steps and across a small stony area to get to the hot tub, so if the weather isn't great then it is a bit of a pain but having access to the hot tub was a real bonus. It is a little remote with no local amenities (walking distance) but we brought some food and drink with us for the first night (champagne in the hot tub was a treat).

    Henry's haunt was ok for a weekend but there were certain things that spoiled a beautiful location and an excellent idea. The complex hartwell hall was very good however poor furniture in Henry's haunt made relaxing difficult and the bath with shower over was tricky to get in and out of. That aside the hot tub was excellent and the view stunning and the bathrobes much appreciated. Other properties may not have had those issues and therefore would be an excellent vacation

    Beautiful cottage with incredible views. We stayed here the night of our wedding and we're greeted with champagne and the biggest easter egg you've ever seen. So lovely.

    Great location, great potential, but didn't live up to expectations. It was cold as heating is controlled by sensors so doesn't come on until you enter room. Took ages to warm up. Needs a fireplace. Bathroom ok but shower bit rubbish. Swimming pool was too cold to use and sauna wasn't working when we went in. Sofas are very low so no good if you have bad knees. The bed was very comfy and the hot tub was definitely the best part of the cottage. We also loved the Christmas decorations and the bottle of prosecco on arrival.
