Property Description

Dating back to 1860, this large Victorian property enjoys views over the surrounding fields towards Butterley Reservoir and Pentrich, and has been beautifully furnished to provide holiday accommodation of a very high standard. Adjoining the owners’ home – which formerly served as the vicarage – it has shared use of a games room with full-size snooker table, professional table football, outdoor table tennis and makes a fine base for touring the Peak District – lying in an area offering a wealth of attractions for visitors.
For those with a penchant for shopping, the Amber Valley Individual Factory Shops Trail is a must and includes McArthurGlen retail outlet, De Bradelei Mill Shop at Belper, Denby Potteries and Royal Crown Derby. There are farmers’ and regular weekly markets in many of the nearby towns including Bakewell and Ashbourne. Alton Towers, Britain’s premier theme park, is close by. Younger children will also enjoy Gullivers Kingdom at nearby Matlock.
Water sports enthusiasts can enjoy the excellent facilities at Carsington Water, whilst Shipley Country Park has miles of meandering footpaths and bridleways. At the Midland Railway Centre, transport enthusiasts can take in the nostalgia of the age of steam and travel through countryside for 7 miles. Meanwhile the National Tramway Museum at Crich offers a family day out in a relaxing atmosphere of a bygone era. Stately homes gracing the area include Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall (a fine medieval manor house) and Hardwick Hall and Kedleston Hall (a fine example of the architecture of Robert Adam). Tennis, riding, golf and swimming at Alfreton, 2 miles. Derby, 12 miles offers cathedral, museums and good shopping. Shop 220 yards.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Excellent layout for our purposes - family event nearby. Description accurate, room sizes good. Directions accurate but tricky to find without overshooting - from North plan to turn right through gap in central reservation AS SOON AS road is split by central reservation. From South access is near the top of the hill, but BEFORE the central reservation stops. Look for 2 LARGE stone gateposts and go between up drive. Aug 2012.
  2. The house and accommodation were of the highest quality. Certainly one of the best we have stayed at throughout the years we have booked through your company. Our only regret was that the house was located somewhat further away from the main ares of interest in Derbyshire than we had anticipated, but we realise this was our choice. We are limited in our choices because we have eleven in our party. Aug 2012.
  3. Second time we have stayed there. Perfect for meeting up with family, as we did, and relaxing. Plenty of room to fit everyone and well provisioned in terms of cutlery etc. Good location in terms of a base to explore the Peak District. Great food at Black Dog, Pentrich. June 2012.
  4. We had a fab time. There were a few loo seats that were a bit loose but it didn’t spoil our break. Sept 2011.
  5. Spacious and well equipped for a large party. Feb 2011.
  6. Excellent facilities thoughout the house. All the bedrooms were well furnished and the en-suite bathrooms excellent. Feb 2011.
  7. We liked the spaciousness, especially of the bedrooms. The en-suites and bathrooms were top class. The ability to use the internet and second television kept the children happy. The Limes had lovely views and easy access to the motorway and to the Derbyshire Dales. Oct 2010.
  8. Spacious property, well equipped, bathroom facilities excellent for large parties, internet access a bonus. March 2010.
  9. The Limes was a fantastic house for a group. We all had young children and yet didn’t feel on top of each other, or hear each other’s children at night - the insulation is good! There was plenty of space (all bedrooms were of a decent size), a well kitted out kitchen, a great hot water and heating system (being there over New Year in the cold it really mattered) and an easy house to be in. The only comment is that the photos on the website really don’t do it justice and it is much nicer and in better condition than it looks. Dec 2009.
  10. Completely true to the description and photos, and perfect for a group getaway weekend. Aug 2009.
  11. The house was wonderful and the bedrooms were all lovely. We shall probably visit again. March 2009.
  12. We had a fantastic weekend at The Limes - the photos on the website do not do it justice, it exceeded our expectations when we got there! The games room was a big hit! A great place - we would definitely book again! Nov 2008.
  13. An excellent base to explore the Peak District and Chatsworth. High standard of furnishings and facilities. Excellent games room! Aug 2008.
  14. Fantastic accommodation with plenty of space for all members of the party to be able to relax and enjoy themselves. Oct 2008.
  15. The property exceeded all expectations. The attention to detail was very much appreciated a real home from home experience. July 2007.
  16. Fabulous house. Extremely spacious. Very well equipped. Sept 2007.
  17. The accommodation was of a high standard with a great place for the children to play - oveall a great place thank you. Sept 2007.
  18. The attention to detail was stunning, we have been on 4 holidays with your company now and we all agreed this was the best and we will definietly return to this property. Dec 2007.
