The Loft Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
This beautifully converted stable block is a Grade II listed detached building and has been thoughtfully renovated to provide a unique holiday home. With a wealth of original features, the cottage is full of character and boasts cruck beams and exposed stonework. There are three stylish bedrooms, a well appointed bathroom and the fabulous kitchen has a dining area and a utility room, The first floor sitting room is on split level and has a wood burner effect electric stove and a games area, making this a cosy, family-friendly room. Outside is an open courtyard, with fabulous views, furniture and barbecue. A separate building houses a sauna, hot tub and shower facilities. This is a great property for a family holiday all year round.

On the edge of the Peak District National Park between Bakewell and Sheffield is the hamlet of Millthorpe with splendid views of the Cordwell Valley. The hamlet is set among rolling countryside and the neighbouring villages are made up of traditional old houses and buildings. The area has a number of hostelries and restaurants waiting to be discovered and Hathersage is close by with more in the way of amenities. In the summer there is an outdoor pool, the churchyard is said to be the burial place of Little John, and Charlotte Bronte is thought to have got her inspiration for Jane Eyre after she had visited friends in Hathersage, so despite its small size, Millthorpe has had quite an influence on its surrounding area. With both the Peak District and Sheffield so close, Millthorpe is an ideal base for a holiday.

The ultimate in "year-round" appeal, the Peak District offers countryside, picturesque villages and magnificent scenery. It touches upon six counties and encloses 555 square miles of open moorland, flowing rivers, and wooded dales.

Lovely cottage, just as described. Fantastic location, perfect for a relaxing break so you can relax in the cottage and jacuzzi/sauna facilities as well as being in a great position for Peak District walks and Bakewell etc. Andrew and Suzanne were very friendly and welcoming too, and patient with our dog. Lovely dogs and horses too they have. 10/10!!

We booked this accommodation with close family for a quiet few days for my 50th birthday. All in all I can say we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the accommodation and surroundings were beautiful and tranquil. I have wonderful memories of the occasion. We really couldn't have picked a nicer place, in addition, we thought the owners were extremely friendly and helpful. I would certainly love to stay here again and would highly recommend to others.

Excellent accommodation, full of character and lovely and cosy. Well equipped and the beds were very comfortable. We loved the sauna and hot tub. We had our dogs with us and the owner allowed us to walk them in the adjacent field. Lovely pub approximately 1.5 miles away. All in all a thoroughly relaxing break, we would definitely return.

The exposed brick and beams were very pleasing on the eye and the beds/sofas were comfortable. The sauna/hot tub area was very relaxing and just a short walk across the courtyard.
Mr Wheaton

It was a lovely place to stay, really convenient for loads of things. The children had a fantastic time on the farm, helping with the animals! The owners could not have been nicer to them. There was also was the added bonus of seven black lab puppies.

We had such a brilliant time. The owners were really friendly and gave us a warm welcome letting us know that if we needed anything we could go see them. The cottage was beautiful and so spacious especially for six 18 year olds. The only thing we could recommend (due to our vanity/makeup application) is a large mirror :) The jacuzzi and sauna were brilliant and we had them all to ourselves for the whole week which was great! Other than that... It was excellent :) Thank You to the owners x

As a family we had a fantastic week! The owners made us feel so welcome and they took time each day to take our children around the farm collecting eggs and feeding the lambs. It included us all in the excitement of new lambs being born, an amazing experience for all to enjoy. The hot tub and sauna were fabulous too!

The owners and their family were so kind and helpful and very patient with our excitable spaniel who had a great time running in the field and playing with the dogs on the farm. My husband and I both enjoyed the wonderful scenery in the Peak District and having the freedom to do everything to suit ourselves. The weather was also perfect for walking and sight seeing.
Mr Shayes

The location of the property was excellent for access to all areas of the Peak District. We had a really good week's walking which was made even more enjoyable by coming back to the hot tub and sauna.
Mrs Spijker

The owners were very nice and helpful with everything. They made us feel right at home. Our dog got his own field that he could run around in. It was our first holiday in the Peak District but we will never forget the kind reception we got in the Loft.
Ms Davis

The setting was beautiful, although only 15 mins from Chesterfield we felt as though we were really away from it all. The sauna hot tub were great. We wouldn't hesitate to go there again.

Miss Packer
August 2009
The Loft was beautiful and clean. The hosts are warm and friendly. Even though it is dog friendly it is still finished to a very high standard. There are several good walks on your doorstep and the sauna and hot tub were great if you were feeling a bit lazy. Shops and pubs are close by too. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to go back again.
Mr Mrs Culley

The sauna and jacuzzi were a great benefit....especially after a long rainy day. Our daughters loved the horses in the stables below their bedrooms and were allowed to help out with the horses when they asked. The family were very friendly and hospitable.
Mrs Brown
April 2009
This place was very special and I have already recommended it to friends. In particular, the welcome from the owners was amazing. The Loft is in a spectacular location and is a beautiful cottage to stay in.
Mr Dennis
December 2008
Fabulous location, spotless accommodation, very roomy. Owners very friendly and very helpful. All in all we had a fantastic few days.
Mrs Harris
February 2009
The cottage was on a farm, in a isolated, quiet position in the Peak District and gave us many opportunities to get out and about. The cottage was warm, had everything we needed and ideal for needs. The children liked having a choice of five tvs to watch!
March 2015
This was the ideal location with the perfect facilities for our annual girls get-together. Kitchen was the ideal hub for us to cook and catch up as well as the more relaxing upstairs lounge area. Lots of sleeping space and 'space' in the bedrooms generally. The hot tub and sauna were in a separate barn opposite the cottage and a great facility to have on the doorstep. Set up on a higher hill there were fantastic views from right outside the front door. Ample parking facilities and some lovely friendly horses in the barn below the cottage. Bakewell is just a short drive away and was lovely for a couple of hours bumbling round the quirky little shops. Highly recommend.
Mr Whalley
November 2008
Lovely location. Very helpful owners.
Mr Grimwood
December 2008
The property was quirky and charming, very spacious, and in a fantastic location. It was well equipped and very warm, and the hot tub and sauna were a real luxury after a hard day of hiking and climbing. The owners were very pleasant and helpful.
Miss Crabtree
February 2016
The Loft was in a fantastic location with stunning views. It had everything we needed for a weekend away. Would definitely stay again and recommend.
April 2013
Hosts really friendly and accommodating. One of our party got lost on the way and the owner went out to find her so she could follow him back. Spacious , warm and welcoming accommodation. Great walks and lovely views.
December 2009
we had a fantastic week made all the better for the warm welcome from the owners who called for our 3 children each morning to come and help feed the horses and tolerated our 2 year old throwing the stones from the driveway into the water trough! This barn is in a wonderful location, close to Chatworth and Bakewell, right in the Peak District with beautiful walks right opposite. we will definitely go back!
