  The Detail...

Set among the rolling hills of Derbyshire, boasting views in every direction The Water Mill is an imposing and picturesque former mill, steeped in local history. The property has been lovingly converted into a unique holiday home, available to rent on a self-catered basis. Easily capable of accommodating up to fourteen guests comfortably, The Water Mill is the perfect choice for large family gatherings, corporate retreats, and any other parties looking to visit Derbyshire and stay in a no-compromise property which can cater to their every whim.

The main kitchen and dining space in the mill combines rustic wood finishes with contemporary high-end culinary appliances, creating a space as aesthetically pleasing as it is functional. Come together for breakfast every morning, and dinner each evening and sit around to share a meal with your loved ones. Alternatively, perch at the four person breakfast bar for a more casual experience.

After dinner, retire to the sitting room, with its abundance of historic features, modular sofas for all fourteen guests, and choice of Freeview, DVD player, or a wide selection of books and games. Aside from the main living spaces, there is also the slightly quirkier Milling Observatory, where an engineered glass panel allows guests to look in on the mill workings from the comfort and safety of the champagne bar. Upstairs, various configurations of couples, families and friends can be comfortably accommodated in the versatile bedrooms. From its high ceilings and original fittings to the no-expense spared modern touches carefully designed to create a luxurious and decadent group destination, everything about The Water Mill will delight you and your guests.

Outdoors, choose between two separate private patios that offer rattan outdoor dining furniture and charcoal barbecues, not to mention the stunning, historic, millstones set into the floor. Alternatively, take a ten minute stroll through the estates pastures and youll reach two separate, private paddocks, both complete with an adjoining stretch of river; the ultimate spot for games, paddling, a picnic, or simply for younger children looking to blow off some steam.

Everything about The Water Mill is geared towards a no-compromise getaway, regardless of your hobbies or preferred activities. Guests who enjoy hiking, bike riding and outdoors pursuits from sailing and paintballing to Go Ape and caving will be delighted by what is on offer in the surrounding Peak District. Almost every taste can be catered to with advance liaison. For a more sedate afternoon stroll, consider the picturesque strolls to either The Knockerdown Pub in nearby Carsington or The Olde Gate Inne in Brassington, both offering brilliant good, excellent cheer and fantastic local ales.
