Impressive holiday house sleeping 20 with a snooker room, for family celebrations and weekends with friends in the Peak District

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Crag Hall, Wildboarclough, Cheshire, Peak District, sleeps 2-20 in 11 bedrooms.

Please note we are unable to accommodate hen or stag groups.

This country house is the perfect destination to gather friends and family together in a manor absolutely made for celebrations, holidays and relaxation. Crag Hall is a Grade 2 listed Georgian property bursting with period features including high ceilings and full-length windows, yet maintaining the welcoming feel of a large family home.

Set in the beautiful Peak District National Park just below Shuttlingslow (The Matterhorn of Cheshire), the house commands wonderful views over the Cheshire Plain and further afield into North Wales. Extensive grounds and mature gardens of Crag Hall offer plenty of space for youngsters to run around and indulge in a game of croquet or badminton on the lawns. During the evening, the large snooker table in the games room provides a wonderful opportunity for a family tournament while enjoying a chat and a drink, always a huge hit.

Formal dining for 20 allows everyone in the party the perfect excuse to share a special meal, perhaps prepared by a professional chef, who can be hired in to cook up a celebration feast. A barbecue is available by prior arrangement for an alfresco supper on a balmy evening in the garden, with ample seating for all. Self-catering for the troops in the well-equipped kitchen is made easy with multiple ovens, hobs and fridges as well as an AGA and dishwasher.

Living spaces with comfy seating and open fires allow flexibility for socialising so that everyone can gather together to watch a film or chat, while individuals wanting a bit of privacy can choose one of the other sitting rooms.

The 11 bedrooms have been personally designed by The Countess of Derby to combine high quality soft furnishings with original furniture, offering guests luxury and amazing views over the surrounding countryside. The convenient mix of superkings, twins and singles ensures everyone is happy. Facilities are plentiful with 3 family bathrooms and 2 ensuites.
