The Heart of England/Peak District
The Peak District is an area of great natural beauty situated in the heart of England and boasts some of the most dramatic and beautiful scenery in the world. This magnificent landscape is perfect for walking, cycling, sight seeing and for the more adventurous, climbing, caving and watersports. The area is home to many small and picturesque villages, historic markest towns and stately homes, the most famous being Chatsworth House, recently used as a filming location for a blockbuster movie. The area is also the location of Britain's first National Park - the Peak District National Park, said to be the second most visited National Park in the world.
The Peak District is a wonderful place to visit for a short weekend break or a longer holiday. With so much to do and explore, the Peak District has it all, covering parts of the counties of Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire and Yorkshire.
There are numerous interesting towns to explore including Ashbourne, a market town founded by the Saxons, forming the southern gateway to the Peak District. The town is the location of the famouse Shrove Tuesday football match which has to be seen to be believed.
Bakewell was founded in Saxon Times and is the home of the Peak District National Park Authority and is a busy market town notable for its livestock market. It is also famous for its Bakewell Tart!
Buxton was founded by the Romans, who exploited the warm spring water to build thermal baths, for which the town became very popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. As a result it has some magnificent buildings, notably the Georgian Crescent and the Opera House. It now has a thriving music and arts festival each summer.
Cromford and the famous Matlock bath can be added to the many places to visit in the area with its theme parks, cable cars, rock climbing and illuminations.
Castle Hill House is perfectly situated to explore the many attractions around Derbyshire and Staffordshire. Tutbury itself has a number of pubs, restaurants and craft and antique shops within walking distance. Castle Hill House is situated next to Tutbury Castle which forms a dramatic backdrop to the house. Tutbury Castle dates back to the stone age and was first recorded in 1071. It is most famous for detaining Mary Queen of Scots on four separate occasions. The castle has a busy calendar of interesting events throughout the year.
If you would like to explore further afield there are excellent road links to Peak District villages such as Ashbourne, only 15 miles away or for the more adventurous Alton Towers Theme Park is only 16 miles away.
If you would like a splash of retail therapy there are numerous shopping centres such as the Westfield in Derby City Centre or the McArthur Glen Factory Outlet a short drive away on the A38. There are also an array of market towns and stone villages to explore which offer something for everyone such as Bakewell, Buxton and the historic Matlock Bath.
If you’re the sporty type try water sports at Carsington Water or one of the many walks and cycle trails at Dovedale, Monsal Head and the Tissington Trail. The keen golfer is spoilt for choice with a number of championship golf courses within easy reach.
Derbyshire is also known for its many historic houses and parks, with many owned and managed by the National Trust they are perfect for a day out in the fabulous unspoilt countryside. Many houses have been used as filming locations such as Chatsworth House and Kedleston Hall.
Other attractions nearby include the Tamworth Snow Dome, Drayton Manor theme park, Trentham Gardens and Go APE!

"Hen Weekend Amazingness!"
We stayed here for a hen weekend in June 2014 & were completely blown away!! The house is just MAGNIFICENT and SOOOOOO much bigger than it looks on the pictures! There were 22 of us in total & all had more than enough room everywhere! All bathrooms are lovely & modern, the house was immaculate & has an amazing outdoor area (great for the innder child in all us grown ups!) and plenty of parking space! Kitchen was well equipped, I wasn't sure what to take - in terms of washing up liquid, tin foil etc - so took it all just in case. Most items were already there, but we left things we brought anyway - a pay it forward kind of deal!! All the bedrooms have beautiful views too! Lisa was very friendly when I was enquiring about EVERYTHING, and Martin met us to show us round when we arrived, was lovely! He was very quick & helpful when we had a hot water issue....all resolved in a matter of minutes - EXCELLENT service!!! The local peacocks were a laughing point for us all weekend - peacock pie anyone?!!!? JUST KIDDING!!!!!!!!!! All in all, this place is just FANTASTIC! It's in a beautiful village, just a 2 minute walk down the hill to local shops/pubs/indian etc, all with very friendly people!
P.S - We all LOVED the doorbell!!! We never got tired of a random press & singalong!!! Haha! Simple things! :)

"22 of us.......Perfect for all"
We were five families including adults, teenagers, kids and babies who stayed over New Year at Castle Hill House.
We all had a great time. Within the house, and on its grounds, we were all catered for.
Coming and going is easy from a very accessible and secure 'on-grounds' car park.
The specification is high and Andrew & Lisa have worked very hard to keep or renew period features. Every room has a luxurious feeling and yet practical enough to withstand exuberant kids!
The layout is perfect for group activities with enough comfy nooks in which just a few people, or Dad with the newspaper, could relax.
All of the bathrooms and bedrooms are clean and bright too. Some of the views are really cool overlooking the Castle to the rear and a green to the front.
The kitchen was a constant focal point for all and well equipped to keep everyone happy.
Loads of good pubs with good food within a few minutes walk.
Andrew & Lisa made the booking arrangements and communication very easy and this put us at ease right from booking, introduction around the house and leaving. We would definitely recommend this venue to groups of Friends or family.
We are so pleased the house suited all your family. Thank you for a lovely Review. It was a pleasure to help you. Lisa
