Description

A 13th-century building dating from 1296 nestled in 14 acres of grounds with a private hot tub and excellent walks from the door.

‘‘...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 had a lovely stay, a little cold at first but once radiators heated up it was all good. Only thing missing is a pog fire. All had a great time.

    Really enjoyed our stay. The housekeeper was very helpful always replying straight away. The only comment I would make is that the gentleman who I think is the owner came across as rather rude. We did arrive at the accommodation earlier than the time that we were able to check in, but we were unsure how long it would take us to get there so allowed extra time. We were only looking around and then heading into Bakewell but his manner was not very welcoming. It put a bit of a dampener on our stay. Everything else was lovely.

    Poor tv reception, fobbed off by ‘Lolly’ saying someone was on route...they hadn’t been contacted .owner was agressive and confronting myself but calmed down when he understood and found dirty pants and joggers under our bed , so not cleaned . Enjoy

    A truly fabulous cottage, the pictures do not do it justice. We hired as our honeymoon and were not disappointed. The views and location are dreamy. However, amenities are some distance away and the local roads are fast and without pavements so walking isn’t recommended. The pool was lovely and a very nice feature. No issues booking a private hour. Our only issue was the check in/out time. 10am is far too early considering you are required to wash up, clean and do the bins before check out. With a 4pm check in, we lost 6 hours of a 72 hour booking. The cleaning turnaround should take far less than 6 hours although I appreciate some guests may leave it in a lesser state. Overall, I would wholeheartedly recommend this property and we had a wonderful time. It has a real wow factor and we hope to return some day.

    Great place, service & facility. Very unusual & well maintained. A wow location & everything thought of ..... but too expensive .... probably the 20% agent fee on top pushed the price over the top 😱
