    • “Ideal property for 2 people with everything you need. Property located in a good location near many walks and beautiful countryside.”

    Mr Thomas, Shepton Mallet, July 2014

    • “The settings. The scenery around the Hay Loft was amazing. The location was also another advantage. You were close to villages such as Bakewell, Buxton, Tideswell but also cities such as Derby and Manchester.”

    Mr Landers, Cahir, June 2014

    • “The Hayloft is perfectly situated within easy driving distance to Castleton where you can find some amazing walks and caverns. It's also quite close to Bakewell, Buxton, Edale and Chatsworth. Tideswell is the nearest village where you can pick up essentials and is a very nice village.The Hayloft itself was cosy and very comfortable. The owners are around if you need anything and are really nice and helpful. Fantastic holiday. Thank you The only improvement I would make to the Hayloft would be to put a little radio in there as you don't always want the tv on first thing in the morning”

About the location


Tideswell 4 miles; Chapel-en-le-Frith 4 miles; Buxton 4 miles.

The ancient and peaceful village of Peak Forest is situated in the heart of the Peak District National Park, boasting an excellent pub, which serves good food. The village is named for the Royal Forest of the Peak, which was an open area used as a royal hunting park rather than a forested area. Peak Forest has a church, which was founded in 1657 by the Countess of Devonshire and until the 18th century, its vicar had considerable freedom in conducting marriage ceremonies, hence Peak Forest became Derbyshire’s Gretna Green. Eldon Hole, one of the seven wonders of the Peak, is surrounded by superb walking country. Nearby are the pretty villages of Edale, the start of the Pennine Way, Castleton, with four spectacular caverns to visit, the ‘plague’ village of Eyam, and Tideswell, where the church is regarded as the cathedral of the Peak. Horse riding, cycling and swimming at the open-air pool in Hethersage and the wonderful Castleton Caves are all available within 7 miles. Enjoy a day out at Alton Towers or visit the impressive Chatsworth House estate, Haddon Hall, or the house and glorious gardens at Lyme Park, all within easy reach.
