It offers three tastefully decorated bedrooms, the master bedroom and twin room are both spacious and boast lovely views over the bowling green and rolling hills of the Monsal Dale.

From the dining area, double doors open into the light, spacious lounge with comfortable seating and contemporary soft furnishings.

Guests staying here can make use of the games room which provides a full-sized snooker table, pool table, table tennis and air hockey, ideal for perhaps a rainy day or enjoy the Astroturf bowling green within the shared gardens.

Outside this impressive mill, you are surrounded by mature landscaped gardens with plenty of seating areas to sit and relax with friends or family while enjoying the beautiful views and listening to the calming sound of the flowing water of the River Wye.

From your doorstep, you can cross the river and walk up the footpath to the popular Monsal Trail, a traffic free route for walkers, cyclists and horse riders through some of the Peak District’s most spectacular limestone dales.

The pretty villages of Litton and Tideswell are nearby, with a number of fine pubs selling real ale and the popular little market town of Bakewell with its array of independent shops, pubs and restaurants is just four miles away.

A little further beyond are the historic houses of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall, both well worth the visit.

About the location

CRESSBROOK

Tideswell 3 miles; Bakewell 4 miles.

Cressbrook is located on the River Wye and its focal point is the wonderful mill, which was built in 1779 by the famous Richard Arkwright. The surrounding area has some of the prettiest scenery in the Peak District. Follow the footpath upstream of Cressbrook Mill to Water-cum-Jolly, a beautiful river gorge with fine limestone cliffs, which is superb for rock climbers, birdwatchers and walkers. North of the mill lies the lane to Ravensdale, which is adjacent to Cressbrook Dale, a fine gorge-like limestone dale with numerous crags and the remains of several lead mines. Cressbrook Dale is a National Nature Reserve renowned for its range of rare flowers. South of the mill you pass through the lovely Monsal Dale leading up to the famous landmark of Monsal Head, which is on the Monsal Trail. This provides a wonderful “behind the scenes” view of this beautiful part of Derbyshire. Close by is the lovely little village of Litton, which has a village green outside the wonderful food-serving pub, The Red Lion, and a well-stocked village shop. Visit nearby Tideswell in the heart of the Peak District National Park with its fine church dedicated to St John the Baptist, known as "The Cathedral of the Peak", country inns, local eateries, wells dressing and carnival wakes. There is excellent walking with rugged peaks to the north and gentle hills and dales to the south, while Mam Tor and Castleton are only a few miles away with the popular Spa town of Buxton a 25 minute drive.
