‘‘...imbued with noble history...set in a dramatic and varied landscape...’’

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. Games room with free wireless internet connection (1gb per day per device). Golf and horse riding are available within 5 miles. Shop 3½ miles, pub 1 mile.

    We absolutely loved staying in "The Chapel" It was so old and wonky and was what it was!! This which we absolutely loved and delighted in!! And so fully accepted the fact of drafts and creaks and cracks etc etc... The secluded back patio with its own little Hot tub was a delight and the place as a whole with its little swimming pool was wonderful. I wouldn't really say they had a spa area as all we could find was a tiny little sauna cupboard... We couldn't find the BBQ hut either but we did manage to find the games room which was an old fashioned delight and was really very stunning!! Everything we felt, was really well planned out by the owners and the welcome upon arrival, chocolates and bottle of prosecco were well and truly a nice touch and certainly well received!! So thank you!! However, here's the moan; Please, please, please sort your heating system out! Oh my gosh, the amount of air that there was trapped and banging around in the heating system was horrendous... "Tapp, tapping, tapping and really very loud banging and clunking" all night long, made for a very awful nights rest!! So with us having 5 children, we went there looking for a rest and a good old fashioned lie-in along with a well earned peaceful nights sleep... Absolutely no way, we went home more tired than when we arrived, so as long as you're cool with that then you will love this place!! It has ample room space and the accommodation itself was so old we adored it!!

    We had a very nice pre Christmas break and enjoyed ourselves very much in the lovely countryside. It was just perfect to unwind and relax in lovely surroundings and near to many of the beautiful villages and walks.

    Had a lovely family birthday celebration at the chapel. Warm, clean and well equipped . Only downside is cannot walk to a local pub but taxi service available and worked fine. Highly recommend this accommodation, fabulous weekend.
