  • "We were blown away by the outstanding view as we pulled up to the loft!"

    It exceeding our expectations! Every morning, it felt like we were in the countryside of a foreign country -it is that beautiful and peaceful! The loft itself was clean, accommodating and our pups loved all the space to run and explore. Suzanne and Andrew answered any questions we had and we just didn’t want to leave! The stay really helped us unwind and take a break from our daily lives. I would strongly recommend and would love to come back. Most importantly, we want to say how loving and warm the owners dogs were to us all, it was a treat to wake up, open the door and be greeted by Twiggy. She was so motherly to our pups and being around the dogs really helped with some their socialisation! 5 star stay!! Thank you

  • "Enjoyed a needed hot tub and sauna break in spacious accommodation in lovely surroundings."

    Everything you need is supplied. Slept very well in king sized bed. Felt very 'at home'. Peaceful farm location but not remote so makes a good base for nearby towns and sight seeing. Would book again for the Loft.

  • "We had a lovely time (3 night break) at The Loft."

    The sauna, billiard table and hot tub were an excellent bonus. The dogs and horses were friendly and made our twin girls very happy. We have never stayed in such a spacious holiday let before. It was amazing. Yes, there are very low beams! As soon as you are used to them all is fine! Comfy beds, two fridges, powerful oven, lovely hot water. A gem of a place to stay!

  • "What a fabulous 2 days here."

    The Loft made up for the rubbish weather. Sauna & Jacuzzi brilliant, everything you need for cooking, huge fridge/freezer + an under counter fridge, bedrooms huge with comfy beds plenty of storage space. Just could do with mirror in each bedroom, apart from that it’s perfect

  • "Lovely quirky converted barn."

    We enjoyed our stay. Easy access to property. very quiet and secluded spot. Fantastic sauna and hot tub which gave our stay extra comfort given the weather. Thank you. Points for improvements: the cleanliness could be improved. spare bedding will really help particularly that the property was very cold the first night we arrived but improved afterwards. People have different preferences, but we would've liked being introduced to the property by the owner same or next day given they lived locally.

    Comfortable beds and good facilities, all in a lovely rural setting. Although the owners were not around to greet us themselves on the day of arrival, the dogs on the farm were very friendly and visited us every day. Hot tub and sauna were an added bonus. Many thanks. X

    Hot tub and sauna are a great way to relax. Lovely countryside setting. Ideal for animal/ dog/horse lovers. Fantastic scenery bang outside the door. Beautiful walks close by. Friendly owners/host. Only thing to improve would be an extra bathroom required if you had a large party, as the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms are Accessed through the master. Oh and mind the low beams. Ha ha.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in this location, there are plenty of walks around the area while also being a good base to get to many more places."

    We really enjoyed being there after lambing season as we got to see all the lambs running and jumping in the fields! The Loft itself is a nice cosy venue with pleasant owners. Although it is a working farm you were never disturbed or feeling as though you were in the way. We would definitely recommend this venue to others, just beware the low beams if you're tall! Really enjoyed the Bar Billiards table, so much so that we're really wanting to buy our own!

    Only negative were the owners dogs, who wake you up in the morning with there barking, not super early but when your on holiday you want a lie in.also they are constantly hanging around the kitchen door wanting feeding and attention,great if your a dog owner but if not a bit too much

  • "Lovely stay in picturesque surroundings."

    The cottage was as expected as we stayed there many years ago. The only real drawback, particularly at night, is the access to the bathroom being through the main bedroom. We were aware of this and it is made clear in the information listed about the cottage. Overall, we had a very enjoyable stay in a beautiful countryside setting, thank you.

  • "Lovely location but quality/care of the Loft let it down."

    Kids loved feeding the horses and being able to roam in the hills. The kitchen wasn’t clean, splashback needed cleaning, dishes were left dirty in the dishwasher, only one dishwasher tablet, no dish cloth, no kitchen role, no hand wash....if going Make sure you take supplies. Jacuzzi lovely but looking at the mould whilst sitting in it wasn’t that relaxing. Saying that, huge space, loads if room for kids to play and plenty of space to spread out!

    Thank you for your feedback and please accept our apologies for the issues you encountered during your stay. Unfortunately our regular housekeeper was away and we are sorry our usual high standards appear to have slipped. If we had been made aware during your stay we would have rectified these issues for you immediately. We are glad you enjoyed the location and the children loved the horses. Property Owner

  • "Amazing relaxing week spent in The Loft."

    It is a spacious comfortable characterful dog friendly property, with beautiful views and the added bonus of the hot tub, sauna and exclusive use of a gas BBQ. It’s a bit away from the nearest convenience store so we were glad that we had arranged a supermarket delivery on our arrival. Sharing the one bathroom through interconnecting bedrooms proved challenging at times, especially with a sleeping infant, but it didn’t spoil our break. Just something to be aware of. The local pub is a mile away and is closed on a Monday. Great local walks and despite the storms we successfully completed two of them. Andrew and Sue are very friendly relaxed and accommodating hosts. Thank you both for making us feel welcome and at home in your lovely property.

About the location

MILLTHORPE

Chatsworth House 6 miles; Baslow 5 miles; Bakewell 9 miles.

Millthorpe is a small hamlet 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. The hamlet is surrounded by undulating countryside and deep valleys, and is set amongst pretty villages made up of traditional old houses, interesting manors, village halls and old churches. 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, 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.
