It is hard to over state how wonderful this house is! We had a family weekend to celebrate my birthday and we could not have done better. The house is spacious, warm and cosy with beautiful furniture and fabulous bedrooms with lovely bedding and linen. We were 8 adult couples with 3 children and 2 babies and it suited us all perfectly. The children just loved the pool and the boat, the adults loved the hot tubs (often with prosecco in the thoughtfully supplied non glass flutes) and the sofas that enveloped us. Mel was very helpful and had thought of everything needed for a great stay. We took it in turns to cook and we all loved the kitchen with its surprisingly sharp knives and plentiful tools, and then the piece de resistance - to sit around the stunning dining table, in comfort and in style enjoying our meals, all together. For me, the highlight was swimming in the lovely warm pool, on my own, listening to classic FM, sheer bliss. Thank you Mel, it was absolutely wonderful.
Fabulous house and host. Beautifully in period, large open fires, to inball rooms (signals poor though), pool and hot tub at the warmest of temperatures. Middle of nowhere but within 1 minutes drive to amenities and 10 minutes to centre of chesterfield.
Can't wait to return.
This is a truly stunning house to spend Christmas in. From the moment our family group of 16 (along with 2 dogs) arrived we felt at home and very comfortable, which is thanks in part to owner Mel, who greeted us and welcomed us into his beautiful home with the open fire roaring and 3 Christmas trees all lit up. Every room is decorated with lovely comfortable furniture, all in keeping with the properties age but my favourite rooms were the kitchen, where me and my sisters cooked Christmas dinner in the aga.. an experience in itself, and the absolutely stunning dining room, which was laid out with all the best silver on the biggest table I've ever seen! The very well heated swimming pool was a definite hit with everyone but especially the children who would of happily spent all day everyday splashing around if they had the chance. The adults enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and a couple of the most brave amongst us even used the outdoor one! On Christmas morning, Mel dressed up as Santa to surprise the children which was fantastic and added another little bit of magic to the day.. thanks Mel, you make a very believable Father Christmas. It's very obvious how proud Mel is of his house, and rightly so, it proved to be a very magical place to spend the festivities in and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this stunning house to everyone.
