Situated in the owner’s grounds, this stylish and spacious rural retreat is perfect for groups of friends looking to explore everything Carsington Water and the Peak District has to offer. There’s plenty of room here for six guests, with remarkable views across the surrounding rolling countryside and direct access to footpaths leading to the lake.

We really enjoyed our week at this beautiful property. It was very well equipped, clean and warm. More than enough space for our family of 5 and our sons loved playing outdoors in the open space. If youre like I was and toying with the idea of staying here, trying to choose between a few different properties, just go for it - you wont regret it!
