The Limes description

Dating back to 1860, this large Victorian property enjoys views over the surrounding fields towards Butterley Reservoir and Pentrich, and has been beautifully furnished to provide holiday accommodation of a very high standard. Adjoining the owners’ home – which formerly served as the vicarage – it has shared use of a games room with full-size snooker table, professional table football, as well as outdoor table tennis. It makes a fine base for touring the Peak District – lying in an area offering a wealth of attractions for visitors.
For those with a penchant for shopping, the Amber Valley Individual Factory Shops Trail is a must and includes McArthurGlen retail outlet, De Bradelei Mill Shop at Belper, Denby Potteries and Royal Crown Derby. There are farmers’ and regular weekly markets in many of the nearby towns including Bakewell and Ashbourne. Alton Towers, Britain’s premier theme park, is close by. Younger children will also enjoy Gullivers Kingdom at nearby Matlock.
Water sports enthusiasts can enjoy the excellent facilities at Carsington Water, whilst Shipley Country Park has miles of meandering footpaths and bridleways. At the Midland Railway Centre, transport enthusiasts can take in the nostalgia of the age of steam and travel through countryside for 7 miles. Meanwhile the National Tramway Museum at Crich offers a family day out in a relaxing atmosphere of a bygone era. Stately homes gracing the area include Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall (a fine medieval manor house) and Hardwick Hall and Kedleston Hall (a fine example of the architecture of Robert Adam). Tennis, riding, golf and swimming at Alfreton, 2 miles. Derby, 12 miles, offers cathedral, museums and good shopping. Shop 220 yards.
