House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Thorncliffe House is situated in Darley Dale near Matlock on the edge of the Peak District National Park. It's ideally located to visit the numerous sights and attractions in the Peak District & Derbyshire Dales. Great for walkers and cyclists with secure storage for your bikes.
The house is maintained to a very high standard and has everything you need to make your holiday perfect. There's four double bedrooms, one has a King Size bed and a luxury en-suite bathroom with walk in shower. Two others have double beds and the fourth has two single beds that can be linked together on request to form a Superking bed. There's also a modern family bathroom with a shower over the bath.
Downstairs the entrance porch leads into a large hallway with an office area. The living room seats 8 people and has a large flatscreen tv with freesat, dvd player and music system. The large kitchen/dining room is a lovely light room with patio doors leading outside onto a paved area. The dining table seats 10 and the fitted kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need and more, including a wine fridge. There's a large fully equipped utility room if you want to do your own laundry and a downstairs cloakroom with wc and hand basin.
Outside is a secure garage with electric door for one car and ample parking at the front of the house for more cars. There's a paved patio area with tables and seating for 8 people and a large enclosed lawned garden that benefits from the sun all day. We recommend supervision of very young children in the garden at all times.
The house backs onto an open playing field that has a small childrens play area at the top, close enough to be handy but far enough away not to be a nuisance.

"Fantastic host, house & holiday!"
Kate was very friendly & quick to answer queries etc before, during & after our stay - we could not have asked more from her! She even left toys out for the 4 kids in our group
The house is amazing - a real pleasure to stay in & loads of really flexible space. It has a really luxurious feel about it - but not in a way that makes you scared to use stuff! The playground & playing field behind the house are little gems & all the neighbours are really friendly too. We had an amazing stay & especially enjoyed the peak railway & walks in the woods behind the house. Thank you again Kate!
