The property

This former farm calf shed has been tastefully converted into a romantic yet quirky one bedroom get-away in the Peak District near the village of Hollinsclough.

It is set in an elevated position with stunningly beautiful views over the Dove Valley and Moors.

The owner, who lives next door, is a renowned artist and has put his own unique stamp on the decor with lots of original works adorning the walls.

The living area is open plan with a kitchen, dining area and a comfortable sofa where you can snuggle up together in front of the glowing woodburning stove.

The bedroom is nicely furnished and features some very whimsical reminders of the buildings previous occupants.

Step out into the garden and marvel at those views!

This is the perfect place to just spend some quiet time, however if you want to venture out, there are extensive walks and trails on the doorstep.

Take short drives to discover the spa town of Buxton, the market town of Leek, the caverns of Castleton and the stately Chatsworth House, as well as many more diversions in the glorious Peak District National Park.

The ever-changing scenery, and year round Peak District events make this a great base whenever you decide to go.

About the location


Buxton 7 miles; Bakewell 11 miles; Leek 11 miles.

Hollinsclough is a small village just south of Buxton in the Peak District National Park. The village sits between the River Dove and the River Manifold and is situated in beautiful rolling hills which are generally quieter than the more popular walking areas to the north and east. Nearby Buxton is famous for the spa waters that rise up through the eight thermal springs that originally attracted the Romans to the town. It was during the 18th and 19th centuries, under the patronage of successive Dukes of Devonshire, that the Palladian splendour of the Buxton of today was designed and built - including the magnificent semi-circular Crescent, The Great Stable, Hall Bank, The Square, The Pavilion Gardens and The Opera House. Today visitors continue to enjoy these magnificent buildings and gardens, as well as the Opera House's full programme and annual festivals of music and arts. Also within easy reach is the charming town of Bakewell, famous for its puddings, as well as the Chatsworth Estate which is open to the public throughout the year. A great base for exploring the Peak District.
