Torr Vale Mill Cottages

If your sense of history is as great as your sense of adventure you are going to love these three incredible cottages. The cottages have been meticulously converted from outbuildings of the Grade II* listed, Torr Vale Mill which was England’s longest continuous working mill between 1785 and 2000. The mill sits in a deep valley on the banks of the River Goyt where a mighty weir was built as a source of power. The cottages are individual and eclectic and retain many clues to their heritage, although they have been refurbished to be very comfortable with tasteful furnishings and modern kitchens and bathrooms. Step out from any of the cottages and there’s a very short walk past the mighty chimney stack down to Torr Gorge where you can join the award-winning Millennium Walkway and marvel at the beauty of Mother Nature claiming back the river. If you can tear yourself away from this awe inspiring place, you might be surprised to find that you are actually in the centre of New Mills with a wide selection of eateries, pubs and shops. The cottages are perfectly located to make the most of the plentiful attractions of the Peak District National Park, and with the Manchester to Sheffield railway line running through the village, these buzzing cities are easily accessible without having to worry about parking the car. These unique cottages can offer groups and families of all ages a memorable and fascinating holiday at any time of year.

The property

From the mill yard, step through a door and then climb wooden stairs up to the first floor.

You emerge into a stunning open plan room that merges contemporary furnishings with the original stone walls of an 18th century mill workshop.

Then you look up and marvel at the old drivebelt wheels running through the open roof beams and you are instantly reminded of the incredible heritage of this unique building.

An eclectic mix of furniture, fixtures and fittings adorn the open plan living area, whilst the three spacious bedrooms, one of which opens out to a small gravelled terrace with views down to the river, and well-appointed bathrooms are off a corridor on the same floor.

About the location

NEW MILLS

Chapel en le Frith 5 miles; Buxton 11 miles.

New Mills is a small town situated on the borders of North West Derbyshire and Cheshire, forming part of the Derbyshire Peak District. Dating back to the 13th century, the late 20th century saw the Torrs Riverside Park (‘the park under the town’) come into being a place for recreation and relaxation, along with the New Mills Heritage Centre, opened to promote tourism in the area. The Torrs Millennium Walkway, a much-admired bridge, is set deep in the gorge and attracts many visitors, while Chapel en le Frith, the Capital of the Peaks, is only 5 miles away, boasting a cobbled market place and historic old stocks. Within easy driving distance is the delightful spa town of Buxton, famous not only for its therapeutic spring water, but also for its Pavillion Gardens and splendid Victorian Opera House, which boasts a variety of shows, attracting people from all over the world. Within easy driving distance are the Blue John show caves at Castleton, the Chestnut Centre Otter & Owl Sanctuary, and many stately homes such as Chatsworth House and Lyme Hall. You could even leave your car behind as there are direct rail links to Manchester, the Hope Valley and Sheffield. An ideal base for exploring the whole of the Peak District.
