Property description
``...imbued with noble history...set in a dramatic and varied landscape...' Take a beautiful Peak District National Park setting, just 31/2 miles from Bakewell, add a historic hall (first recorded in the Domesday Book), and an ancient cluster of listed buildings converted to form superb cottage accommodation....and the result is the captivating blend that is Harthill Hall. Nestling in 14 acres of grounds on an upland called Priest's Hill with excellent walking available from the doorstep, the properties have the use of an extensive range of leisure facilities including an indoor heated swimming-pool, sauna, solarium, spa and beauty treatment room, and wifi bistro. Noble names have woven the threads of the hall's long history including Henry de Ferrers, the Cokaynes and the Harthills. Henry VIII is also believed to have stayed at the hall. It was here in 1259 that Sir Richard de Hartle was issued a Papal Bull by Pope Alexander II, allowing him to appoint his own chaplain. The chapel ceased its functions as a place of worship in 1546 and now takes the form of The Chapel and Hartle Cottage. Furnished with antiques, the eight cottages (five featured here) surround a medieval cobbled courtyard and retain a wealth of original features including thick stone walls, large oak beams, mullion windows and flagstone floors. Derbyshire's bustling market towns, villages, hills, dales and rivers, offer majestic scenery, and a rich variety of customs. Boasting a varied and beautiful landscape, they also offer a blend of heritage, history and family attractions. The beautiful market town of Bakewell is situated on the River Wye, crossed by a 13th-century five-arched bridge, with the 13th and 14th-century All Saints Church, where Saxon and Norman stonework can still be found. Within easy reach are Matlock, with Hall Leys Park offering numerous recreational facilities, Chesterfield, Alfreton and Buxton. National Trust properties and gardens nearby include, Riley Graves, Longshaw, Mam Tor, South Peak, Divedale, Hardwick Hall and Kedleston Hall.
