The Peak District National park has plenty for everyone. You can even do unusual sports such as paragliding in Castleton
Holmesfield: Holmesfield Holmesfield is a Parish based around two centres of population; the village of Holmesfield itself, and the hamlet of Millthorpe. It is made up of a number of farming hamlets situated above the Cordwell Valley.
The village is very pleasantly situated in a highly respectable neighbourhood and contains several very genteel habitations. The Parish extends beyond Owler Bar to the West and towards Dronfield to the East.
The centre of the parish is marked by St Swithins parish church, which was built in 1826, which can be seen from almost all of the surrounding areas. Amongst the local amenities are eight pubs, (including The Angel Inn, Horns Inn, Travellers Rest Inn and the George & Dragon) and a number of restaurants; both a football and cricket pitch, a village hall (that can be booked by members of the public) and a host of groups and societies to accommodate many an interest, and the parish’s most recent addition, the Vicarage was added in 1999.
Areas of Interest within walking distance: Fanshawe Gate Hall in Holmesfield is one of the most popular private gardens in north Derbyshire. It combines traditional cottage garden planting with magnificent topiary and water features. Holmesfield’s important buildings are Holmesfield Hall, dated 1613, with additions built in the 18th century, and Woodthorpe Hall, a large 17th century, gabled manor house, dated 1636.
Peak District: The property overlooks the Peak National Park - where there is an abundance of things to do. Every activity you can imagine is available in some shape or form. Over 22 million people visit the Peak District every year and when you get here ..you'll know why. If you are a keen walker - a guide can be arranged a very reasonable fee to arrange day walks taking in some of the finest views in Europe! Just let the owners know in advance.
If you are interested in off road mountain biking then there are plenty of tracks. Hathersage village (7 miles away) has a great heated outdoor pool that is open from April - end September and is definitely worth a visit. Chatsworth House is 6 miles away and is a must visit!
Other Activities: Close to Chatsworth House, Hathersage, Bakewell, Haddon Hall and many other historical points of interest

Really sorry to read this review. We maintain the house constantly and actually I bought new knives yesterday before I even read this review, unfortunately not in time for these visitors. We have instructions in the kitchen for all appliances. We take the other points seriously and despite having put lamps in the house these don't seem to give enough light satisfaction - so I will buy some stronger reading lights. All other items will be sorted. As this group was here for a week, I could have fixed anything required if it had been brought to my attention, but I will immediately for our next guests.

I am glad you all had a great time, I am sorry to hear about the heating upstairs. We do have heating upstairs and have the heating on all the time, even when the house is not in use so it stays warm for visitors - we have a hefty bill to prove it! It sounds like I need to get it checked which I will do today now that I know. Hope to see you all again.

"Great family gathering house"
Stayed here for a family birthday, chose this because it has 5 double bedrooms with one of these and a bathroom on the ground floor for an older relative. Location is great, with lovely views, walking distance to several pubs and restaurants, really close to gorgeous countryside, or rugged moors for walking, pretty market towns to explore like Bakewell, Buxton and Matlock. House is about right for 10 people and a few kids - good sized lounge with log burner and high beamed ceiling, large dining area with views over the valley, attractive and well equipped kitchen, 5 good sized bedrooms with comfy beds and 3 bathrooms. The pool table and table football were great, as would have been the hot tub in the courtyard, but it was unseasonably cold so we weren't able to use it. Nice extras like two fridges, lots of family games, a supply of logs and kindling, plastic cups and plates for outdoor eating etc. The temperature dropped suddenly when we arrived so we weren't warm enough in the lounge (as its such a big room) on the first day or two but the owner was fantastic about sorting this out and giving us some fab electric heaters until the central heating had caught up, it was really cosy after that. The house was really clean and tidy but there were some maintenance issues with things that needed painting, fixing or replacing but they weren't major and perhaps it was a sign of it being the end of the summer season. Would be great to stay here in the depths of winter providing you had plenty of supplies in, as well as in summer when the outdoor spaces and hot tub would be fantastic fun.
Just a quick update on this review; The house has been completely re painted since this review, a job that we do annually as well as constantly touching up during the year.
