  • “Beautiful cottage, spotless and a great location.”

    We appreciated the contact from Gill the housekeeper to check that everything was ok. A first family holiday with our new baby, and we loved it!

The property

Positioned in the heart of the Peak District, in the peaceful village of Monyash, surrounded by a patchwork of green fields, is The Priory.

This character cottage offers families and friends the opportunity to explore a beautiful region of walking country.

You are invited inside by a home-from-home welcome, with original beams and exposed stonework throughout.

There is a utility room and cloakroom off from the hall and a storage area with some household essentials.

Prepare a hearty meal in the kitchen and get together around the dining table, toasting to a long-awaiting getaway in Derbyshire.

The Range cooker takes centre stage before a host of useful appliances and integrated units.

After dinner, step into the sitting room, throw another log on the fire and unwind into the evening before heading up to bed.

You have a master king-size room, followed by a double bedroom and a single bedroom, each well-presented for a wonderful stay.

The wonderfully appointed bathroom has been fitted with a tiled floor, roll top bathtub, perfect for soaking your aching muscles, and a separate shower cubicle.

Outside, you can make the most of a sunny afternoon and sit in the south-facing front lawned garden with a refreshing beverage.

Monyash has a good pub known for serving delicious food, if you fancy a night off from the cooking.

There is a cafe in the village centre that does food all day, including a wonderful, hearty breakfast; you also have the option to take out.

You are also within easy reach of Bakewell, a delightful market town with many shops, pubs and restaurants, along with the local farmers' market, also, nearby is Buxton, home of Buxton Water, a thermal spa town famous for its stunning ornamental gardens and Georgian and Victorian architecture.

Explore the stately home of Chatsworth House and even venture out to the enchanting Haddon Hall to stroll its romantic gardens and uncover a long history.

Fabulous walking and cycling opportunities await within the Peak District National Park, with many scenic routes to enjoy.

The Priory is a delightful base to return to at the end of each day.

About the location


Bakewell 4.5 miles; Buxton 8 miles.

Monyash is a charming Derbyshire village built around the village green in the heart of the Peak District National Park, boasting a 17th century village pub which serves good food. The attractive market town of Bakewell is just under 5 miles away and offers visitors a good selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as frequent local farmers' markets. Bakewell is situated within the Peak District National Park and is ideally placed for exploring this beautiful region. Both the rugged Dark Peak and the softer limestone White Peak are within easy reach, and Alton Towers, Britain's premier theme park, is only a short drive away. There are many stately homes to visit including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall to mention just a few, while the impressive caverns in nearby Castleton and Little John's burial place in Hathersage are also well worth a visit. It is beautiful walking country with several of the Peak District's famous dales close by including Dovedale, Millers Dale, Monsal Dale and the stunning Lathkill Dale. The Tissington Trail is also nearby.
