Hallwood House Hero

Hallwood House Heart of England

A Derbyshire haven for happy holidays

Hallwood House is the perfect setting for a family or friends get together. Gather your loved ones and enjoy good times in this beautiful stone-built hall, hidden among the green hills and meadows beside Carsington Water on the edge of the Peak District.

Cosy up to the open fire in the drawing room and listen to tunes on the piano while the children dash about the garden, where a playground, tennis courts and outdoor games will keep them busy. With underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, it’s a pleasure to wander from the sitting room to the separate TV room or to the games room, where you can play pool.

Cooking for up to 20 would be a chore in any other kitchen but here at Hallwood House, it’s such a joyful, light-filled room you want to spend time here. A glass structure linking the two wings of the hall, the kitchen offers calming views of the lush Derbyshire countryside.

The 10 bedrooms, laid out over two floors, are peaceful and comfortable, with more wonderful views, and the eight bathrooms - a mix of baths and showers - are generously supplied with luxury toiletries, ample fluffy towels and cosy underfloor heating.

Outside, you can join the children on the tennis courts, soak up the sun on the lawn, or sink into the luxury wood-fired hot tub. A charcoal barbecue and seating for 20 guests set the scene for sociable summer evenings, and the ha-ha is the place to sit and watch the sun set after another perfect day.

Out and About in Derbyshire

Step from the grounds of Hallwood House, straight onto the walking trail around Carsington Water and enjoy wildlife watching as you follow the line of the shore. Nearby are all the best parts of the Peak District, including Dovedale, the Tissington Trail and the Heights of Abraham. And you might want to let the children know that Gulliver’s Kingdom theme park is just down the road and Alton Towers is only half an hour away.
