The Hayloft - Warren Carr, Matlock, Derbyshire, The Peak District, England - Sleeps 2

The Hayloft

The Hayloft is a cosy retreat for two sitting in an idyllic position amongst beautiful grounds on the edge of the Peak District National Park in the Derbyshire Hills. Equidistant from Bakewell and Matlock, The Hayloft is one of two unique holiday homes that provide an ideal base for exploring the area's many attractions including popular Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall which are both ten minutes away by car.

As the name suggests, the building dates back to the 18th Century and was formerly an old stone hayloft. Today it still retains much of its former glory with lots of exposed stonework and timbers throughout, perfectly blended with traditional furnishings, giving a lovely cosy olde worlde feel.

The Hayloft is self-contained and nestles amongst glorious gardens. Accessed via a pretty courtyard, stone steps take you up to the apartment where you will find welcoming accommodation, well equipped with everything needed to self-cater in comfort. Ablaze with colour during the warmer months, guests have full use of the pretty cottage gardens and adjoining land where chickens wander. There is plenty of outside space to relax and take full advantage of the beautiful views that allow the eye to wander over farmland and the surrounding hills covered in woodland and heather.

For those who enjoy walking and cycling, the surrounding area offers plenty of opportunities with many lovely walks and cycle rides starting from the front door. The Tissington Trail and Monsal Trail are also a short drive away.

Spend your days relaxing in the beauty of this picturesque setting or tear yourself away and visit the many attractions. Stanton Moor offers lovely walks and is rich in historic interest with its ancient Nine Ladies Stone Circle and Bronze Age. The county town of Matlock is a short drive away with a great choice of shops and places for a meal out. Bakewell is another favourite with lots of lovely independent shops, cafes, bustling weekly market (Monday's) and picturesque riverside setting. Other popular attractions include: world famous Blue John Mines for an underground adventure; the ancient market town of Ashbourne with its cobbled market place that holds a twice weekly market (Thursday and Saturday); Derwent Water with its lovely circular lake walk; Ladybower Reservoir; the stunning valley and much loved beauty spot of Dovedale; and Castleton, possibly the most picturesque village in the Peak District.
