Ever imagined staying in school over night when you were little day-dreaming in class, well at Hopscotch Corner, you can! Originally the local village school, this quirky property used to be the offices and classroom.
Although this house has been skilfully converted to give you all the mod cons, including a sleek kitchen and beautifully fitted bathroom, efforts were taken to preserve the look and feel of the building’s original purpose and features such as the characterful open-grate arts and crafts fireplace, and the open veranda corridor that runs along the front of the building.
Hopscotch Corner is set in one of the most stunning parts of the Peak District. The closest attractions are Matlock and Matlock Bath, giving the opportunity to explore the Heights of Abraham and Gulliver’s Kingdom accessed via cable car, and offering spectacular views of the Derwent Valley. From here you can tour the network of caverns and passageways, or walk over 60 acres of woodland hillside. This is an ideal base from which to explore the region’s attractions, including the magnificent stately homes; the beautiful Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are an absolute must see. Visit the picturesque villages of Bakewell and Ashover, Cardale in TV’s ‘Peak Practice’, both close by. Excellent walking can be found from the doorstep, plus activities at Carsington Water, including sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and cycling, plus excellent birdwatching in the surrounding areas.
If you have any energy left after a wonderful day exploring, why not go into the playground and enjoy a game of, yes you guessed it, Hopscotch!This property can be booked together with Abacus House (CC418041) to accommodate up to six guests.
