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.

A lovely cottage weekend break with our dog. Great peaceful location not far from Bakewell. Only issue we had were beds were too small especially in the twin bedroom.

A family of 4 (12 & 17 yo) plus a dog, we had a wonderful time. There was literally not a single solitary thing to complain about. Pool, jacuzzi, sauna, treatment room. I got a massage which was as just what I needed! Games room which we thoroughly enjoyed the retro Pac-Man and street fighter games were so fun. The area was beautiful, the fields all lush. The info provided about local pubs and restaurants was so so useful!!! The place had everything you need. Couldn’t fault it … will definitely book again - thank you!

This was an outstanding property. We loved the hot tub outside and used it every day. The personal use of a swimming pool and sauna area was great- particularly during COVID times. The property was ideal for doing some lovely walks locally which had stunning views (particularly Stanton Moor) and very close to Chatsworth and Bakewell. Book early!
