House
Stunning Georgian house sleeping 14 with games room, perfect for celebrations on the edge of the Peak District

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Darley House, Darley Dale, Matlock, Derbyshire, sleeps 14 in 6 bedrooms.

Darley House is the perfect luxury location to spend time together and celebrate with family and friends - we've hosted 30th to 90th birthdays, silver and golden wedding anniversaries and christenings. It is a special place for you to enjoy with the special people in your life.

Recently and lovingly restored by Lucy and Alex Arterton, with four elegant reception rooms and a splendid and spacious kitchen/dining area, Darley House makes for either superb communal entertaining, or, equally, private spaces to just be. The size of the house, its spacious and elegantly proportioned rooms combined with contemporary design, and the entrance through an original covered coaching portico, are striking and create a sense of calm.

Darley House is on the edge of the Peak District National Park between Matlock and Bakewell, conveniently located for Chatsworth and Haddon Hall. There are beautiful walks through the Dales, cycle paths along disused railway lines and many other outdoor activities nearby. There is a unique wealth of history associated with the area's legacy as the birthplace of the industrial revolution such as Richard Arkwright's Cromford Mill. And, for the more adrenaline-charged of us, we are under an hour away from Alton Towers.

Or, stay put and enjoy the immediate surroundings at Darley House - play croquet on the large formal lawn, petanque on the gravel pathways, table tennis in the games room, or explore the private and secluded Victorian walkways, enjoy an aperitif on the patio or climb the sweeping steps and contemplate the views of the rolling hills from the grand balustraded garden terrace designed by Sir Joseph Paxton.

Garden lovers can admire the mature specimen trees - ancient yews mark the boundary of the property, a glorious and ancient copper beech dominates the upper garden astride an ivy clad mound and there are the curiously exotic giant redwood and gingko biloba trees.

And to celebrate in style and make your stay extra special we can put you in touch with a private chef, a portable hot tub company and beauticians who can offer you a range of treatments in-house.
