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.
Area 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.
Region 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 stay in picturesque surroundings.. The cottage was as expected as we stayed there many years ago. The only real drawback, particularly at night, is the access to the bathroom being through the main bedroom. We were aware of this and it is made clear in the information listed about the cottage. Overall, we had a very enjoyable stay in a beautiful countryside setting, thank you.

The accommodation was absolutely excellent ! ! And the location was so peaceful...... the owner who lived on site made us feel so welcome and the hot tub and sauna were a lovely addition. Just one more thing as dog lovers the dogs on the farm were so lovely and friendly can’t wait to come back!!!!

Amazing weekend away.. Stunning views and gorgeous stables. The hottub and sauna were a lovely relaxing touch.

Had the most amazing break cottage was beautiful and clean hot tub was brilliant
Lovely location but quality/care of the Loft let it down.. Kids loved feeding the horses and being able to roam in the hills.
The kitchen wasn’t clean, splashback needed cleaning, dishes were left dirty in the dishwasher, only one dishwasher tablet, no dish cloth, no kitchen role, no hand wash....if going Make sure you take supplies.
Jacuzzi lovely but looking at the mould whilst sitting in it wasn’t that relaxing.
Saying that, huge space, loads if room for kids to play and plenty of space to spread out!
Fantastic views and location
Fantastic cottage experience
Amazing relaxing week spent in The Loft.. It is a spacious comfortable characterful dog friendly property, with beautiful views and the added bonus of the hot tub, sauna and exclusive use of a gas BBQ. It’s a bit away from the nearest convenience store so we were glad that we had arranged a supermarket delivery on our arrival. Sharing the one bathroom through interconnecting bedrooms proved challenging at times, especially with a sleeping infant, but it didn’t spoil our break. Just something to be aware of. The local pub is a mile away and is closed on a Monday. Great local walks and despite the storms we successfully completed two of them. Andrew and Sue are very friendly relaxed and accommodating hosts. Thank you both for making us feel welcome and at home in your lovely property.
Beautiful accommodation in a gorgeous setting close to lots of lovely places to visit.. Owners were very welcoming and friendly, kept our grandson very happy as he loves farms. Would definitely recommend this cottage.
Absolutely loved the loft, it was a lovely place to stay and the views were amazing
Lovely cottage with excellent facilities.. Unfortunately I couldn’t take advantage of the hot tub as broke my ankle and arm week before but my husband and children loved it. Home from home and lovely farm setting. Owners both very welcoming and the dogs. Will definitely return
Fantastic place, amazing views, home from home :)
Fantastic location, extremely friendly people on such a lovely working farm
This Christmas my parents booked this cottage in the peak district. To my amazement its situation was perfect for me as a climber, right near froggat and curber for climbing, i mean 5 mins fro the froggat parking!
Te cottage was really lush, really comfy and warm. with a hot tub and sauna n the barn opposite i was so spoilt. the farm dogs were really friendly and it was lovely to see horses in the stables below (which do not keep you up at night.
i can highly recommend this place for a stay.
A lovely warm welcome.. Clean and tidy property. the hot tub was a welcome addition. will be returning. thank you
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.
Loved The Loft!! Friendly hosts and great views. Very peaceful.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A beautiful cottage and a lovely friendly family, they were very accommodating. Would definitely recommend.
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.
A stunning location, the use of the hot tub and sauna were great. The owners helpful when asked anything. Would recommend and would return given the opportunity.
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
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.
Good views with plenty of walks nearby, the Family enjoyed the sauna and hot tub. The owners were on site and very pleasant, they showed us around the farm and let the three year old grandson feed the young lamb.
We had the best time at The Loft. The people were so helpful and accommodating and the views and accommodation were stunning. We will definitely be back. Thank you all so much for a perfect weekend!
The owner (on site) was extremely helpful, but without being intrusive. The facilities were fabulous.
Excellent friendly owners. Property had everything you needed. Good location to visit all tourist sights. Had a warm and cosy feel.
The owners of the loft are very welcoming people. The scenery is breath taking. Hot tub and sauna facilities are excellent! Overall an excellent stay.
The cottage was immaculate and comfortable. The whole atmosphere was totally relaxing, the hosts were very friendly. The sauna and hot tub were incredible.
The owner was lovely. She made us feel very welcome. Jacuzzi a bonus. Beautiful location. We aim to go back again soon.
The hosts were extremely friendly and the opportunity for the children to be involved with the animals at the farm was wonderful.
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.
Lovely hosts who were very helpful when one of the party got lost. Lovely walks.
The owners were very friendly and the accommodation was excellent. A relaxing holiday in a quiet area with plenty of places to visit in the area.
A relaxing stay, beautiful scenery and the hosts were friendly and allowed us the freedom to enjoy the facilities.
The cottage was perfect. The owners were very friendly and understanding given that we basically turned their cottage into a recording studio for a week! The countryside was beautiful. I would recommend the cottage wholeheartedly to anyone.
We particularly enjoyed the hot tub, the sauna and the shower outbuilding. Very friendly and helpful property owners were on hand in the farmhouse.
The hot tub and sauna made our holiday! The owners were very helpful and friendly. If you like walking this is the place for you.
Wonderful accommodation. Very friendly owners. Hot tub and sauna an excellent bonus. Very child and pet friendly. Great location for days out in a beautiful part of the country. Would definitely return. Highly recommend!
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.
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 whole holiday was thoroughly enjoyable. The owners were very friendly and the accommodation was very nice with beautiful views. Well located with a local pub close by and a nice Italian restaurant in the next village. You will enjoy.
An excellent weekend break, friendly owners and we would highly recommend.
The owners were very friendly and helpful. Hot tub and sauna were an absolute bonus.
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.
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.
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.
Excellent location, good quality accommodation, owner very friendly and helpful.
This is a really quirky place to stay, we loved the hot tub and sauna. Being situated right near the horses was amazing! The hosts were fantastic and really friendly. The views were amazing and there was a lovely walk into the Peak District really close by.
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!
A very dog friendly property with lots of outdoor space. Also local to lots of tourist attractions. A lovely place to stay.
A fantastic property! We particularly enjoyed the hot tub and sauna. Beautiful views from the property and lovely walks nearby. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Thank you for a wonderful weekend! My sister had a brilliant 30th birthday surprise!
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.
Very friendly helpful owners. Lovely location. Hot tub and sauna a great bonus. Plenty of space.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Fabulous location, spotless accommodation, very roomy. Owners very friendly and very helpful. All in all we had a fantastic few days.
Lovely location. Very helpful owners.
