The property

Holmesfield 0.7 miles.

A stunning, 17th century Grade II listed detached house with a hot tub, on the outskirts of the village of Holmesfield, within driving distance of the Spa town of Buxton and only ten miles from Sheffield.

A former coaching inn, this wonderful property has been lovingly refurbished, boasting underfloor heating, a fabulous hot tub, beautiful beamed ceilings and modern fixtures and fittings, providing a truly outstanding holiday home.

This is an ideal base for families, friends, birthday or anniversary celebrations and stag/hen parties.

The first room you enter into is the games room with a pool table and table football, where many in your party can enjoy a competitive game or two during a rainy afternoon.

From here is the delightful kitchen with a breakfast bar, granite work surfaces and a Belfast sink and which has everything you need to cook lovely home-made meals.

These meals can then be enjoyed around the dining table from where wonderful countryside views can be admired.

Within the same room as the dining table is a cosy sitting area with a warming woodburning stove set in a stone fireplace, beautiful exposed beams and patio doors that open out onto the garden and hot tub.

Completing the ground floor are two comfortable bedrooms, a king-size double with a feature fireplace and a twin.

On the first floor are three further bedrooms, including another king-size double and a double with the convenience of an en-suite, together with a modern bathroom with roll-top bath.

The lawned garden invites you to enjoy a spot of alfresco dining on the patio after which you can relax in the bubbles of the hot tub before retiring to the bedrooms for a good night’s sleep.

The property offers breathtaking rural views and wonderful walks can be enjoyed from the doorstep.

Within reach are many attractions and places to visit, including the excellent Chatsworth House, Bakewell or Sheffield with its shops, pubs and nightlife.

A superb and stylish holiday home.

About the location


Chatsworth House 6 miles; Bakewell 10 miles.

Holmesfield is a small village situated on a high peak between Bakewell and Sheffield, on the very edge of the Peak District National Park, and with commanding views of the Cordwell Valley. Surrounded by undulating countryside and deep valleys, the village is made up of a group of traditional old houses, interesting manors, a village hall and the parish church of St Swithins, built in 1826. There are many local amenities; the area boasts eight pubs and a number of fine restaurants, and is ideally located for exploring this interesting and beautiful area. Nearby, the impressive Damflask, Agden, Dale Dike and Ladybower dams make for an interesting afternoon's ramble, while the attractive village of Hathersage is also within easy reach, thought to be the inspiration for Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre and home to a selection of shops, pubs and inviting eateries, and a lovely outdoor lido. There are many stately homes to visit including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall to mention just a few, whilst the historic and ever popular town of Bakewell along with the lively city of Sheffield are both within a short drive. An ideal location whatever the time of year.
