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.

Absolute stunning location and lovely cottages, having the hot tub and pool was passive bonus for us all. Booked for my partners birthday which we had a lovely surprise as they had provided a cake and champagne along with a birthday ballon and banners which was a lovely touch so thank you for making our weekend even more special Would definitely recommend

We stayed here for my husbands birthday. The staff decorated the living room with birthday banners without us even asking and left a bottle of prosecco, birthday cake and card. We loved the cottage and the facilities and will definitely go back. No negative points as far as we were concerned.

Firstly the double bedroom was damp with water condensing on the walls. The carpet was wet on arrival and remained wet for the rest of the stay. Overnight the bed sheets would become damp and cold. This is not only unacceptable but clearly not in adherance to minimum quality standards or health and safety standards! We note that the swimming pool is directly below this apartment and is obviously causing these substandard conditions. We were accompanied by a friend who is a Respiratory Physician who expressed serious concerns regarding potential pathogens being spread in that accomodation. Secondly the bathroom had mould growing in the corner of the bath and the shower pressures can only be described as pathetic. The carpet in the bathroom was mouldy and damp and was odorous. I'm sure you can agree that this is not acceptable or in keeping with what you advertise on your website.
