Up the stairs to the first floor there are two twin bedrooms, both with ample storage space to unpack any personal belongings and lovely feature fireplaces, as well as a shower room so you can prepare for your day, and up another flight of stairs there is a stylish king-size bedroom with a contemporary en-suite wet room, to enjoy some privacy when the evening draws to a close.

Outside there is a gorgeous multi-level garden with lawn, patio and well-kept trees, as well as furniture to enjoy a spot of al fresco dining, and there is also a bike store.

Within driving distance is Alton Towers Theme Park, a handful of breathtaking stately homes including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall, the impressive caverns in nearby Castleton and Little John’s burial place in Hathersage.

A day trip to Matlock or Matlock Bath leaves you in the home of Pic Tor War Memorial from 1921, Heights of Abraham hilltop park accessed from the by either cable car or a steep zig-zag path, and Gulliver's Kingdom Theme Park, or go the opposite direction to Buxton which is also worthy of your time, as you can visit the impressive Edwardian Opera House, designed by Frank Matcham, or Solomon's Temple, a hilltop landmark dating from 1896 which offers views of the Peak District from the top of its tower.
