An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


A spacious Victorian property which has been well equipped for the larger party. Take advantage of the shared games room or drink in the surrounding countryside views.

Dating back to 1860, this large Victorian property enjoys views over the surrounding fields towards Butterley Reservoir and Pentrich, and has been beautifully furnished to provide holiday accommodation of a very high standard. Adjoining the owners’ home – which formerly served as the vicarage – it has shared use of a games room with full-size snooker table, professional table football, as well as outdoor table tennis. It makes a fine base for touring the Peak District – lying in an area offering a wealth of attractions for visitors.
For those with a penchant for shopping, the Amber Valley Individual Factory Shops Trail is a must and includes McArthurGlen retail outlet, De Bradelei Mill Shop at Belper, Denby Potteries and Royal Crown Derby. There are farmers’ and regular weekly markets in many of the nearby towns including Bakewell and Ashbourne. Alton Towers, Britain’s premier theme park, is close by. Younger children will also enjoy Gullivers Kingdom at nearby Matlock.
Water sports enthusiasts can enjoy the excellent facilities at Carsington Water, whilst Shipley Country Park has miles of meandering footpaths and bridleways. At the Midland Railway Centre, transport enthusiasts can take in the nostalgia of the age of steam and travel through countryside for 7 miles. Meanwhile the National Tramway Museum at Crich offers a family day out in a relaxing atmosphere of a bygone era. Stately homes gracing the area include Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall (a fine medieval manor house) and Hardwick Hall and Kedleston Hall (a fine example of the architecture of Robert Adam). Tennis, riding, golf and swimming at Alfreton, 2 miles. Derby, 12 miles, offers cathedral, museums and good shopping. Shop 220 yards.

    Beautiful cottage with lot of space,wish we could go in summer so that could use conservatory and garden.only few minor problems like blocked sink,bathroom exhaust was not working.these problems overshadowed the space of cottage.very good break.

    What a fantastic house! The photos don't do it justice at all. All the rooms a huge with high ceilings and period features and everyone had their own bathroom (even in 2 were not officially en-suites). We barely left the house apart from a few walks as the games room kept the young ones (20s and 30s) occupied and everyone else was happy to chat, catch up, play board games, watch 6 nations etc. The kitchen is so well stocked with cooking utensils etc that our only tiny gripe was that we didn't have much cupboard space to put our shopping. Not exactly the end of the world. Oh and that fridge..... We all want that secret compartment on ours now! Thanks for a great stay, we'll be back.

    Had a brilliant long weekend! Wonderful house with lots of character. Ideal for large family/friends gatherings. Lots of space and everything you need for entertaining. Added bonus of a full size snooker table in the games room. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for quality time together in a lovely location.

    We had the most brilliant weekend celebrating my 50th and my husbands 60th birthdays with our family and friends. The house is the perfect place for a large get together, plenty of space for everyone. Great having the 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. As we visited in the winter, we were worried it may be cold as it is such a big place but we needn't of because it was lovely and warm.......even had to turn the heating down at one point. It was spotlessly clean and the kitchen extremely well stocked to cook meals for all 11 of us. We met Peter, the owner, and he was lovely and welcoming. Having the games room with the full size snooker table was a huge hit with the men (and 81yr old Mum and her 84yr old Cousin had a ball in there.....beating one of the guys at pool!!!!!!!) We would thoroughly recommend you staying at The Limes and we will certainly go back.

    Lovely house, everything we needed for our family get-together. Felt very much at home, all modern conveniences but not too 'posh' for the children to be able to play. Games room a real boon for teenagers and dads/grandads. Kitchen was well equipped and big enough for us all to sit round the table for dinner in evenings. Only criticism was that the garden wasn't secure from carpark for toddler, but that would be difficult to achieve. All 15 of us had a really memorable time. Thank you.

    Beautiful sopranos house that has been tastefully decorated and is perfectly clean. Beds comfortable with good linen. Kitchen very well equipped. Lovely conservatory. Actually did one of the jigsaws that was there.

    Great weekend away for a large group of uni friends. House is huge, lots of space and benefits from as many bathrooms as bedrooms. Only two minor points - we couldn't get into the games room due to a damaged key (got in their eventually on our last full day) and the pans in the kitchen are all non stick - but thankfully the dishwasher seemed to clean them after 2-3 intense washes.
