  • “We had a very nice time and some beautiful walks, On arrival about 4pm it was very disappointing to arrive in October to a cold house.”

In the morning on waking the heating was on but again around 9am it appeared to go off again until 5pm! We are in our 70’s and so did not want to be out walking all day hence the afternoons were chilly to say the least. We did feel that for the three days we were there that the owners could have supplied us with warmth all day. We would stay there again but when it is warmer ! The house was lovely but chilly at times.

Buxton 7 miles.

Chapel-en-le-Frith is known as the Capital of the Peaks, with its cobbled market place and historic old stocks. Just four miles away lies the spa town of Buxton, famous not only for its therapeutic spring water, but also for its Pavillion Gardens and splendid Victorian Opera House, and which boasts a variety of shows, attracting people from all over the world. A short drive away are an abundance of attractions including the Blue John Cavern and the castle at Castleton and many stately homes such as Chatsworth House and Lyme Hall. Chinley is a lovely little village nestled in a wonderful rural setting, on the western edge of the Peak District National Park. Popular with walkers, who are attracted by Chinley’s close proximity to Kinder Scout, visitors are well-catered for with the village’s selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants.
The delightful High Peak village of Hayfield is situated in a wonderful rural setting on the north western edge of the Peak District National Park. It’s a peaceful little village, popular with walkers who are attracted by its close proximity to Kinder Scout. Serious walkers head east out of the village, up and over the green foothills to the russet expanse of the Kinder Plateau, Pennine Way and Snake Path, whilst families (and those who enjoy more gentle rambles) head west along the beautiful Sett Valley Trail towards New Mills.
