This amazing, and very special, large Arts and Crafts House, with ‘wrap around’ encaustic tiled Shaker panelled verandahs, was built in the Great War as a shooting lodge to the adjacent moors in the heart of the Peak District National Park.
The Meads is hidden away at the end of a 150 yard driveway, with plenty of secure parking, and next to the lovely old church and lych gate built in 1885. We are perfectly designed and situated, with everything this stunning area and our lovely village has to offer on your doorstep, for relaxing, gathering friends, and this is a walkers, cyclists and photographers paradise.
Both properties are beautifully furnished and decorated in a great mixture of contemporary, colourful, cosy, country house style with hand-dragged Shaker painted panelling, solid oak floors and encaustic tiles. There are huge blazing indigo blue Austrian wood burners in the kitchen, dining hall and sitting room of The Meads and the sitting room of The Garden Wing. Generously stocked Gourmet kitchens, with an Aga cooker and American fridge/freezers in the The Meads, and a Lacanche gas and electric range, and orange Smeg fridge/freezer in the The Garden Wing, as well as Belfast sinks and underfloor heating.
In the winter months come and sit by blazing wood stoves, or in the summer take a glass of wine and explore the 3 acres of fantastic woodland gardens, with a large expanse of heart-shaped lawn. The gardens are imaginatively laid out as parkland for you to enjoy, and designed to lead you along meandering, stepping stone pathways from ‘room to room’, over rustic bridges, through picnic areas, barbecue areas, camp fire site and topiary rooms with lots of swing seats and outside ‘Chesterfields’ and outside cushions to sit on. Catch the sun, spend some time bird watching and take in the surrounding panoramic views of the Kinder Scout mountain range. Or best of all, in the evening, take a lantern and sit on the rustic benches by our camp fire to a backdrop of stars.
