These superb historic cottages have been meticulously converted from outbuildings of the Grade II* listed Torr Vale Mill, which was once England’s longest continuous working mill between 1785 and 2000. Sitting in a deep valley on the banks of the River Goyt, the cottages are wonderfully individual and retain many fabulous clues as to their heritage.
When the mill installed steam power it meant that there would need to be a constant fire burning in the boiler room. If a fire were to break out in a working cotton mill the results would be catastrophic, so a full-time fireman was in residence. This cottage is a lovely conversion of his original living quarters, with the light and comfortable bedrooms on the ground floor, and the main living area upstairs to really make the most of the views over the iconic mill and River Goyt. Outside a short walk past the mighty chimney stack and you’ll reach the award-winning Millennium Walkway. This 160m long cantilevered walkway provides a route through the previously impassable gritstone gorge at Torrs, New Mills which is an area of exceptional natural beauty and unique industrial archaeological heritage.
Perched on the northwest corner of the Peak District, New Mills is a scenic, thriving town with a wide selection of restaurants, cafes and pubs. Being on the edge of the National Park means there’s an abundance of beautiful towns and villages to explore such as Edale, Castleton and Hope, all of which all can be reached in around 30 minutes. The National Trust’s Lyme Park is around 20 minutes from the property, Eyam and Bakewell and the magnificent historic house of Chatsworth, are all around 40 minutes away. Finally, the bright lights of Manchester and Sheffield can be reached by direct train from New Mills station. Pub within a mile.
These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 17 guests.
