This fine courtyard of old stone barns was part of a working farm but has now been sensitively converted to offer fifteen beautifully furnished and well-equipped cottages. They enjoy shared use of a superb indoor heated swimming pool in an adjacent building, with a shallow area for children, the pool has its own changing rooms. There is a separate games room within the pool building where Wi-Fi is available. Knockerdown Treatment Rooms is an independent facility offering luxurious treatments, which guests can book by contacting the spa directly. There are two conference/dining rooms for large groups, and a separate laundry room with automatic washing machine and tumble dryer. Close to the cottages are patio and barbecue areas, all set in 3-acres of shared grounds, offering a children’s play area and plenty of space in which to relax.

This is an ideal setting for a Peak District holiday. Knockerdown Farm is conveniently situated within walking distance of beautiful Carsington Water, a superb windsurfing and sailing centre, which has an area devoted to nature conservancy. At the water sports centre guests can hire (with tuition) kayaks, windsurfers, canoes and bicycles. Fly fishing is available to enable guests to try their hand at fishing this popular, well-stocked reservoir. Fine walking country is virtually on the doorstep, and the renowned Tissington and Middleton cycle trails are both close by. Wirksworth, the market town of Ashbourne, attractive Bakewell (of pudding fame) and Matlock: all are fascinating ancient towns. The young (and the young at heart) will enjoy a day out at the National Tramway Museum. Chatsworth House (16 miles) boasts a famous collection of art treasures as well as beautiful gardens. Haddon Hall (13 miles) is England’s most complete and authentic medieval house dating back to the 14th century. One of Britain’s premier theme parks, Alton Towers is within easy reach. There are several country inns within walking distance. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

There were 6 of us and we had a marvellous time. The apartment was well equipped with everything we needed. The swimming pool and table tennis table were well used as the weather was variable. The surrounding countryside has plenty of good walks. Brassington has a wonderful pub, The Olde Gate Inn for lunches and evening meals. Matlock Bath is close by and a day trip there is a pleasure. Ashbourne has a large supermarket and some very good boutiques and shops.
