This is your property for a luxury couples retreat, with everything you need to hide away together. The bedroom has a king-sized bed, a TV, and even a double sided log burning stove so that you can drift off at night to the flickering embers of the fire that you set earlier in the day in the living room! There is a spacious en-suite bath and shower room with roll topped bath and heated towel rail. The stone floor is heated throughout and exposed beams are a prominent feature. If you stray outside of the bedroom, you’ll find an open-plan living area with double doors leading to your own private patio area and the most stunning views across the Wye Valley, with Monsal Head, Longstone ridge, and the Hunting Tower on the Chatsworth Estate all within sight.

On site, there is a games room, drying room, safe cycle storage and picnic/bbq area. You can enjoy fresh farm eggs and milk delivered to your doorstep each morning. More
