The Old Workshop description

Holiday home
The Old Workshop is a superb cottage in the grounds of a Grade II* listed former mill on the River Goyt, just on the edge of the Derbyshire town of New Mills. The cottage is all on the first floor and sleeps seven people in three double bedrooms (one with a pull-out bed) along with two family bathrooms. Also in the cottage is an open plan living area with a fitted kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area. Outside is off road parking and access to the river and a myriad of walks. The Old Workshop is a superb holiday home in an historic building set in a magnificent location.

Situated on the borders of North West Derbyshire and Cheshire is the small town of New Mills, forming part of the Derbyshire Peak District. Although the settlement dates back to the 13th Century, the late 20th Century saw the Torrs Riverside Park, often called 'the park under the town' - come into being as a place for recreation and relaxation. To promote tourism in the area, the New Mills Heritage Centre was opened and visitors can enjoy this as well as The Torrs Millennium Walkway, a much-admired bridge set deep within the gorge. Just five miles away is Chapel en le Frith - the Capital of the Peaks - that boasts a cobbled market place complete with historic old stocks. The spa town of Buxton is within easy driving distance and is famous not only for its therapeutic spring water but also for its Pavillion Gardens and splendid Victorian Opera House.

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.

Gas central heating. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher, TV with Freeview, WiFi, selection of books, games and DVDs. Fuel and power inc. in rent.

This is a beautifully converted mill, spacious enough for 7 people, and well furnished with modern fittings, whilst still being very charming. It is set in a gorgeous area of New Mills with the River Goyt running right outside the window, it makes a perfect base for exploring the local landscape, with lots to see and do in the area. We went in the dead of winter and this was a lovely cosy home to come back to after a day exploring.

The cottage was in an excellent location, close to New Mills, but nevertheless felt secluded. It was quiet and peaceful and very close to the River Goyt and the Millennium Walkway. The property was unusual, in an old converted mill, but beautifully restored. The original machinery was still in the roof space and looked great. The cottage was laid out in a sociable way to encourage communal living. We thoroughly enjoyed it!

An awesome place to stay which was homely and unique with an open plan design. The location was great, close to the town centre and with good transport links - the bus and train station were a short walk away. The accommodation was first class and in a peaceful and tranquil location.
