Property code: 85487

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.

Absolutely fantastic. Perfect setting for my 60th birthday weekend with my girlfriends. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and appreciated the beauty of the property. All the facilities were great and the property was exceptionally well equipped. Thank you. Highly recommend.

We have just spent a lovely Xmas at the old hall. The house was beautifully decorated for Xmas and the wood burners were an added bonus, making it very cosy. The beds were comfortable & linens were of good quality. The kitchen was well equipped and spacious for us all to gather. The stairs were a bit tricky for the older members of our group. A hanRead moredrail would help. Also a 2nd shower would be beneficial. Welcome pack was much appreciated. Overall a lovely house to stay in. Hide

A fabulous place to stay, which felt really special. Set in beautiful countryside and with lots of social space in the house, and a wonderfully equipped kitchen and dining room. A little tricky in terms of bathrooms with so many guests, but we managed! And very steep and uneven stairs up to bedrooms which could be tricky for older guests. But it waRead mores the perfect setting for celebrating our special occasion! Hide

We were each celebrating a significant birthday and invited our children and little granddaughters to join us. All 3 generations had a lovely time and the owners had prepared everything to make us feel welcome. The house is close to the Peak District and only a few yards from an hourly bus route from Derby for anyone coming by public transport. ORead moreld Hall is a 17th century house with a lot of historic features and, though the kitchen and bathrooms are very modern and spacious, guests should expect some low doorways and steps which are part of its character and appeal (as are the swallows nesting in the porch). We have already recommended it to friends. Hide

A really beautiful old building which is extremely well equipped and has been decorated in a sympathetic and quirky modern style. A great base to visit the Peak District, but also lovely walks directly from the door. We had a great weekend for a 3 generation family get together.

We arrived at Old Hall to find a beautiful welcome basket of local cakes and beers. It was wonderful to enjoy the history of this beautiful old place, while enjoying every modern amenity. A great deal of thought has obviously been given to creating the perfect balance of ancient and modern, with a delightful quirky twist.

The Manor House is stunningl. Clean and decorated beautifully. We had a lovely winter long weekend stay. We were a large group of 10 and there was hot water for all.
