  • “Fantastic views, hadn't actually realised how good they would be.”

    Really a superb spot, completely isolated from neighbours, perfect place for a relaxing break. Looks like owners are investing in the property, looked like a new air source heating unit and garden furniture added which were great. The living spaces are comfortable and clean. The kitchen is a little old but quite ok. The range cooker was great to prepare food on. Double bedrooms a little tight to fit in a travel cot (we had two toddlers in our party). Downstairs bedroom ideal for older children ...

    Really a superb spot, completely isolated from neighbours, perfect place for a relaxing break. Looks like owners are investing in the property, looked like a new air source heating unit and garden furniture added which were great. The living spaces are comfortable and clean. The kitchen is a little old but quite ok. The range cooker was great to prepare food on. Double bedrooms a little tight to fit in a travel cot (we had two toddlers in our party). Downstairs bedroom ideal for older children or single adults. Bedroom with views down into the valley did have a slightly damp smell which is mentioned in other reviews. It is a very old cottage and moisture is a bit inevitable, it wasn't intrusive or really unpleasant. One thing to keep in mind is the farm track, if you have anything lower than an SUV/4x4 you will need to take it very carefully. XC90 was absolutely fine but our party had an Audi A4 which scraped up the hill in parts.

About the location

PRIESTCLIFFE

Bakewell 7 miles.

Priestcliffe is a small hamlet of farms and dwellings, sited between Taddington, the River Wye and Monsal Head. This is the scenic heart of the Peak District, with high limestone hills offering fantastic walks. Monsal Head is a famous beauty spot, with a magnificent view down Monsal Dale and up the Wye Valley. The position is at a spot where the Wye, on its passage eastwards to meet the Derwent, encounters a band of harder rock and is forced to make a sharp turn southwards and carve its way through a high ridge of limestone. The view is spectacular, with the river far below, winding through a steep-sided and often rocky valley. The route of the former Midland Railway makes its way along Monsal Dale and was carried by a viaduct over the river and into a tunnel which goes right beneath Monsal Head. This is now part of the Monsal Trail, a popular route with walkers. The attractive market town of Bakewell is just 7 miles away and offers visitors a good selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as frequent local farmers’ markets. An ideal location for exploring the Peak District National Park.
