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.

Overall our stay was great.lovely views and a quirky room.we enjoyed the on site facilities the hot tub was amazing and we had a good laugh in the games room swimming pool was small but OK only downfall was we booked it in evenings and it's very poorly lit.the room was smaller than we thought it would be and not decorated in our taste but was very clean and bed super comfy.only problem with it being an old building it lacks soundproofing so you can hear èverything either side and unfortunately the person next door had taken a very barky dog which woke us every morning at 6am so not ideal for a relaxing restful break.also on entering property noticed a smell like damp and our extractor fan in bathroom never turned off so could hear it even with bathroom door shut.when I complained about the dog and the fan they came out and fixed fan next day which did make it quieter but also made the damp smell return,they did also make dog owner aware of fact her dog had caused us an issue however nothing complimentary was offered to us despite having very poor sleep for 4 out of our 7 nights stay due to noisy dog and only other observation for trying to target the high end market your would expect good quality fluffy towel however the ones supplied had seen better days.the free cava and bakewell tarts on arrival was a nice touch.we would stay again when we get our dog however not in that particular property.

A really quirky place to stay and one that we would definitely recommend and return to ourselves. Fabulous location and views. Lots to do close by and plenty of great walks (and pubs) to choose from. NOTE: I didn’t give 10 across the board as there needs to be an ice bucket and also some way to control the sensor that turns on the main kitchen light as it is too bright and comes on even when sat watching the TV...only little things I know but there is always room for improvement right..?
