Cooking and Dining

The Grange has a fantastic fully equipped farmhouse kitchen. With stone flagged floors, a sink looking out onto the courtyard and all the mod cons you could need, this property makes catering for large groups a breeze. Amongst the essentials of double oven, fridge/freezer,  dishwasher, microwaves and washing machine you will find cupboards filled with crockery, pots, pans, cutlery and glassware.

Step through the doorway into a charming dining room providing yet more serene views. Pride of place in the centre of the room are two wooden dining tables with seating for 14 guests. If you find yourself wanting to take advantage of your break away and not cook for one evening, a lot of our guests make use of local caterers and with the separate dining room you can shut off from the bustle of the kitchen for the evening and focus on socialising. 

Off the kitchen down a couple of steps is a WC and utility room with more storage and space to hang outdoor clothing after a day exploring the Peak District.

Living Spaces

Through the farmhouse off the downstairs hall there is a cosy lounge perfect for unwinding after a long day taking advantage of the surrounding walks. Sink into the luxurious leather sofas (up to 9) or additional bean bags. There is a TV with DVD player for you to enjoy a group film night, alternatively set up a board game on the central coffee table and continue the day's fun. 

Beneath the lounge and accessible from the utility room is a cellar which has been cleverly converted into a games room. With an imaginative glass feature in the floor of the lounge, peak below onto your guests enjoying a game of pool or darts. There is also an additional television in the games room. 
Please be aware due to the character and age of the property there is an open stairway with stone steps leading down to the Games Room.

Our Top 5 Places to Visit Nearby

1. The Royal Oak Pub

As our award winning pub is only 0.8 mile stroll down the lane, it would be rude not to pop in and sample the extensive menu and try the various local beers on offer.  Reservations are recommended, please call 01298 83288.

For further information please visit the Royal Oak website.

2. The Tissington and High Peak Trails

With the Tissington and High Peak Trails close by you can walk for miles along these old railway lines. Both trails meet at Parsley Hay, the Tissington Trail runs along a 13 mile route from Ashbourne to Parsley Hay, while the High Peak Trail is 17.5 miles longroute from the High Peak junction near Cromford to Dowlow. Surrounded by beautiful countryside the traffic-free trail is ideal for horse riders, cyclists and walkers of all abilities. It is also suitable for wheel chairs and pushchairs along the flat sections and the trail is mainly mud free which is quite rare in the Peak District. To find the nearest access turn left out of Hurdlow Grange and walk up the lane for ½ mile and you will come to a track clearly marked on you right, follow this until you reach the beginning of  the trail on the right hand side. The nearest bike hire can be found at Parsley Hay which is 2.5 miles away and is at the junction of the High Peak and Tissington Trails.

Click here for more information on Parsley Hay cycle hire.  (Parsley Hay does shut for Winter from 01st Nov until February)

3. Chatsworth House and Park

No visit to the Peak District would be complete without visiting the fabulous Chatsworth Estate. There really is something to do for every member of the family - The Farmyard and Adventure playground, the magnificent house and the gardens which are equally as impressive as the house , with the maze, the garden trails, and the famous water cascade to keep the little ones occupied.

4. A visit to the village of Wincle

A great day out for the family with something for everyone to enjoy. Start off with a visit to the famous Danebridge Fisheries, a great place to visit with kids, here you can fish in the well-stocked pool, catch your own supper or feed the trout (food supplied). Then a visit to the Wincle Brewery, where you can even do a one day brewing course!
