This lovingly converted former hay barn is set in a beautiful rural position within the rolling landscape of the Peak District National Park complete with superb, uninterrupted views.
Located in the beautiful Staffordshire Moorlands, this property is within easy reach of many local attractions. The local village pub is within walking distance and a little further afield there is a country café and farm shop where you can enjoy a breakfast, lunch or dinner. The market town of Ashbourne, famous for the Royal Shrovetide, is 8 miles away, and the towns of Bakewell - famous for its Bakewell Pudding - and Buxton, home to an opera house and spa, are both a little further. When you’re looking to fill your days, you can choose from Alton Towers, Peak Wildlife Park, Thor’s Cave and the Manifold Trail, all of which can be found nearby. Or if you’re looking for activities right from your doorstep, there are plenty of pretty walks and cycle rides around the Roaches and the Manifold Valley. For those who like the water, you’ll find Rudyard Lake (of Kipling fame) with its miniature steam railway and a little further out, Carsington Water with its water sports centre. Tittesworth Reservoir also has a kayak/canoeing centre if you fancy a paddle and keen anglers will also enjoy spending time here. Other attractions include Haddon Hall, Chatsworth House, Cheddleton Steam Railway, Tissington Hall, Sudbury Hall and its Museum of Childhood - all are local and easily reached from the property by car.
