5 Star luxury in the Peak District…

 

After a long day exploring the vast landscapes and quaint villages of the Peak District & Derbyshire, imagine winding down for the rest of the evening in a luxurious B&B or self-catering apartment… sounds pretty nice, doesn’t it?

So, here’s a handful of our most gorgeous 5 star properties in the area:

Underleigh House

 

 

 

Underleigh house was built in 1873 as a typical Derbyshire longhouse with living accommodation at one end, a cart shed at the other with winter housing for stock in the middle and a hayloft above.  Great walks (such as the Great Ridge between Loose Hill and Mam Tor, Win Hill , Crookstone Moor, and Ladybower) can be undertaken directly from the door- suggested routes/maps are provided. Also nearby are: Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Lyme Park and Hardwick Hall to consider, not forgetting the charms of Castleton (and its caves), Hathersage, Eyam (the ‘Plague Village’), Tideswell, Bakewell, and Buxton-

Bretton Cottage, Eyam
