  The Detail...

Thornbridge Manor is a stunning, colonial style, Country House in the heart of the Peak District National Park.

Situated on the edge of the unspoilt village of Great Longstone, it affords a prestigious position beside the famous Monsal Trail and its newly opened tunnels, as well as only being a short distance away from Monsal Head and Dale, Bakewell, Chatsworth and Ashford in the Water.

At this charming property youll find seven bedrooms and plenty of country chic. The space is flexible, with bedrooms that can sleep between two and five, and groups of between 14 and 24.

The house feels spacious, but remains full of warmth and character, with plenty of places to nestle up to a fire. The fully-equipped farmhouse kitchen is the perfect place to entertain, with a table that can seat up to 24. For those who dont want to cook, caterers can be organised on request.

Thornbridge Manor is set in beautifully landscaped gardens that include a childrens play area and tennis court, with a mass of outdoor space, where you can even enjoy a game of croquet on the lawn. This is an idyllic and very private location, perfect for families, groups of friends, walkers and cyclists. The ideal base to explore, relax and enjoy the many attractions of the Peak Park.

Theres no need to use your car here as you are situated right on the Monsal Trail which leads to the historic market town of Bakewell (40 mins stroll, 10 minutes cycle ride) passing the popular Hassop Station cafe where you can hire bikes. Leading off the beaten trail, there are numerous footpaths for you to head in whatever direction takes your fancy.

Thornbridge Manor also has an enviable location just on the cusp of the pretty village of Great Longstone, walking distance from not just one but a selection of really good, heart-warmingly traditional pubs. This includes the local's favourite The Pack Horse in Little Longstone (15 minutes walk), The White Lion in Great Longstone and a leisurely walk through fields to the picture postcard village of Ashford in the Water which is served by two well respected pubs, The Bulls Head and The Ashford Arms.

For unbeatable views of the viaduct, you can jump on the trail and head through the tunnel to the Monsal Head Hotel with the fabulous traditional Stable Bar and fantastic outside seating area looking north westerly down into Monsal Dale is less than 15 minutes walk away.
