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. Golf and horse riding are available within 5 miles. Shop 3½ miles, pub 1 mile.

Manners (RAA4) and Harthill Barn (RAA5) can be joined by interconnecting doors and may be booked together to sleep up to 16+4 children under 8 yrs.

The view is amazing and the surrounding area is amazing. Beautiful scenery from all the bedrooms. We had a big gathering and for the money we paid for a few days we’d expect things to be exceptional and there is definitely room for improvement. The bedrooms are pretty small for two adults sharing except for two masters. The en-suite bathrooms are all tiny and most have shower curtains which aren’t very nice and damp smelling. Some showers I think have been re done but not all. Most bedrooms could do with re-painting. Beds are pretty small as well. Duvets very heavy and mattress / pillows average. Especially if you’re tall beds are small! Water pressure rubbish especially in upstairs showers. Games room has a wonky table tennis table & foosball table two arcade machines but only one works. Could do with just a decent pool table and get rid of all the stuff that doesn’t work / can hardly be used! Room is very dingy as well. The noise from upstairs over the bedrooms below is pretty loud, not ideal for children sleeping. I know it’s an old barn but maybe floor boards can be improved! The plus points which really make the stay good are the hot tub and the shared pool. The views and setting is un-rivalled. I think for a quiet hen party or gathering with friends it would be great but for use with family and children it wasn’t ideal. Overall value for money therefore is not great, would have expected higher standard for the money paid.
