Create unforgettable memories within this fine period residence set with this peaceful village of Middle Mayfield. An ideal gathering place for relaxation, celebrations or country pursuits.
Grand and imposing with an impressive history, this Grade-II listed property sleeps ten and is a sheer delight for that special big holiday you have been planning. Positioned in idyllic Ashbourne with the Peak District National Park as your playground, you’ll soon find yourself thoroughly relaxed thanks to the abundance of scenic walks, country inns and cosy evenings spent feasting on good food and wine.
Decorated in the spirit of the past with antique furniture and a soothing colour palette, your accommodation is perfectly suited to family occasions. Don your finery and sip drinks in the parlour, moving through to the dining room with its Jacobean panelled walls, wood burner and hidden reading nook and large table when it is time to eat. The spacious kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly need to cook up a storm, and you can even take your meals outside to dine alfresco on warm afternoons in the large garden. Your sleeping quarters consist of five bedrooms that share a marvellous bathroom and shower room, and can be arranged in a variety of ways to suit your group. Accessed via one of two staircases, they are a wonderful retreat after a busy day – just take care as the steps are narrow and uneven.
Tailor your itinerary to match your mood, enjoying the excellent walking opportunities that lie beyond the village. Rich pastures, craggy tors and riverside meadows are waiting to be explored, and there are lots of country inns to choose from for a slap-up lunch. Try the Tissington Trail and bring along your bike, or seek out thrills at Alton Towers, 6.5 miles away. Further afield, Dovedale (5.5 miles away) is a must simply to take in the breathtaking Thorpe Cloud and the picturesque stepping stones.
