    The location is very good to, althopugh some warning needs to be given about the state of the narrow lane that must be traversed to access. However there were a couple of teething problems that put a downer on the weekend. The first was that there was a leak from a pipe in the ceiling of the dining room, which had covered one piece of furniture and the floor when we arrived. We reported this, but no progress was made during the weekend. We collected 5 trays of water over the period. Also talking to the cleaners this was already known. Second when we arrived there were a number of wasps in the barn part of the house. Listening on the landing we could ere scratching and rustling noises quite clearly indicating a wasps nest in the roof, Fortunately the wasps were accessing from outside, but still occasional wasps would get into the rooms. This meant we weren't really able to use the small bed room, as noone would sleep near the nest. Again we reported this but nothing was done over the period. The cleaners obviously had noticed wasps int he house but had not investigated further (it took us less than 10 mins to find this on arrival). 3. The gas rings on the stove int he farm house had functioning igniters on only 2 of the 7 rings. 4. The door of the double bed room of the farm house jammed when shut so that my 80 year old mother got stuck inside, because she couldn't pull the doo open. 5. There needs to be a contact number in the house for snags, as we wasted a couple of hours trying to find the right people to report this to when we had just arrived.

The property

This stunning detached farmhouse is set next to the owner's working farm in the hamlet of Priestcliffe, within the breathtaking Peak District National Park.

The property has been sympathetically renovated to offer luxurious, spacious accommodation comprising of two wings, the original farmhouse and its converted barn, with both wings having the added benefit of their own kitchen and living space, making it an ideal choice for families and groups of friends who want to holiday together but equally enjoy their own space.

Both of the kitchens are well-equipped with one having a large range cooker with double oven and 6-ring gas hob, and both include dining tables where guests can sit keeping the designated chefs company whilst preparing their gourmet dishes!

The wings of the house are joined by a beautiful dining room with a gas stove and an exquisite antique banqueting table large enough to sit twelve guests, the perfect place for entertaining or celebrating a special occasion.

There are two cosy and comfortable sitting rooms, one featuring an open fire and the other a wood-burning stove, and as both include Smart TVs with Sky TV you will be spoilt for choice where to relax in the evening.

There are six spacious and beautifully styled bedrooms, two with luxury en-suite facilities and one of which is on the ground floor, ideal for guests who may struggle with stairs.

A seventh twin bedroom, accessed through a quirky half-height doorway, provides additional accommodation that will appeal to older children.

As well as the en-suite facilities there are a further three stylish bathrooms, one of which boasts a luxurious freestanding bath, and with two cloakrooms on the ground floor there are plenty of facilities for all.

Outside, you will be astounded by the beautiful countryside views and the outdoor space available to you, with an enclosed garden and play area, lovely patio area perfect for alfresco dining whilst taking in the views, and a gated enclosed pond.

Walkers and mountain bikers will be spoilt for choice with public bridleways, a nature reserve, tracks and footpaths on your doorstep, taking you through magnificent open moors and countryside.

With Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, and the market towns of Bakewell, Buxton and Ashbourne close by there is plenty of choice for things to do and see, in this wonderful area.

This beautiful character property, in a stunning location, provides all the ingredients for a special holiday and will have you wanting to return year after year.

About the location


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.
