It provides luxurious accommodation and 'out of hours' access to the main park.

Parking: at the side of the cottage there is space for three cars. There is access to Kedleston Park from the front garden.

We have looked after this lovely area for over 100 years. From the high moorland of the Dark Peak Estate on the Yorkshire-Derbyshire border to the gentler rolling landscapes of south Derbyshire, we now care for some 40,000 acres of wild natural beauty. Staying here brings you close to some incredible wildlife, like white mountain hares and wild kestrels, as well as glimpses into our fascinating industrial past.
With its spectacular and contrasting scenery, the Peak District is a region of outstanding natural beauty and one of Britain's loveliest National Parks. The National Trust has been hard at work here for over 100 years and now cares for some 40,000 acres.

Although only ten miles from the centre of Sheffield, the Longshaw Estate boasts more than 1,700 acres of open moorland, gritstone edges and ancient oak woodland, while the 4,400 acre South Peak Estate lies in the magnificent limestone hills, centred upon the well-known beauty spots of Ilam and Dovedale. On the foothills of the Peak District, Lyme Park contains an Italianate mansion and Victorian garden surrounded by a medieval deer park of almost 1,400 acres.Hardwick Hall is ideally situated for exploring the Peak District, while the gentler landscapes of South Derbyshire contain pretty village and bustling market towns. The area is steeped in history with ancient castles, grand houses and sites that reveal the ingenuity of our industrial past.
