Built by a farmer for his two sons in the mid 1800’s, Cliff House is a solidly-built Victorian family house, complete with original features such as the oak flooring and Minton Tiles in the hallway.
The main house sleeps up to 26, in flexible arrangement. There are 10 bedrooms, with 7 bathrooms, and the capacity to turn an upstairs sitting room into a sofa-bed (NB: this room does not have a door). One of the bedrooms is on the ground floor, and up to 6 children can sleep with their parents in the same room (putting the house capacity at 30). The reception rooms of Cliff House are large and comfortable, and include a dining room (to seat 26), kitchen (with a table for breakfast), drawing room and boot room, for all of your wellies and outdoor gear.
There is a cottage next door available for rent which sleeps a further 6 people in 3 bedrooms.
The house sits in a small garden – with terrace and BBQ – on the top of Monsal Head. It’s surrounded by amazing views of Monsal Dale, and the Longstone Edge above the village of Little Longstone.
Cliff House is a walkers’ paradise, with some of the finest walking in The Peaks from right outside the door. One the most famous walks is the Monsal Trail (the house is only a 2 minute walk away from the newly opened tunnels). The Monsal Trail runs all the way from Bakewell to Buxton, perfect for walkers and cyclists. Cliff House is also near the pretty villages of Great Longstone (with its mysterious hill fort – Fin Cop), Little Longstone and Ashford in the Water (all with brilliant traditional pubs).
Cliff House is an excellent base for lots of sport – there’s sailing or canoeing, fly-fishing, golf, riding, shooting…go-karting, Go-Ape, caving, mountain biking (you can hire the bikes)- all of which can be arranged by your hosts.
Should you need a town, Bakewell is 5 minutes away by car, or the spa town of Buxton is 15 minutes away (lots of spa treatments available). If you feel in need of cultured beauty, Chatsworth House and estate is about 10 minutes away.
Cliff House is suitable for parties of friends or family, reunions, special celebrations and city escapes. It is also suitable for corporate and business use, or retreats.
