Bike Store

Our newly refurbished lockable indoor bike store has eight wall-mounted individual cycle racks plus additional floor space for bike storage. Whether you’re serious cyclists on a biking holiday or just want to bring the family bikes with you for a tootle on the Monsal Trail, you can rest easy knowing everything is stored safely away.  We also have bike washing facilities and a tyre pump.

Tennis Court

Refurbished in 2017, the fenced tennis court is available for use all year round, with seating for spectators above the court.  Racquets and balls are provided in the games room.

Games Room

The large games room is equipped with full size table tennis, pool and football tables. For younger guests, there is a Wendy House and good range of toys and games.  We have a selection of tennis and table tennis equipment available which you are welcome to borrow. Tennis and table tennis balls are provided.


All of the properties are no-smoking. Each cottage has an independent central heating and hot water system run by combi-boiler, all of which are serviced annually, to ensure an immediate and ready supply of hot water.  Each property has an electric oven, hob and microwave oven. All cottages are equipped with fridge freezers, Freeview television, DVD players and radio/CD players.  Prince’s Seat can cater for groups and/or larger families.
You will find each property fully prepared when you arrive with beds made and towels provided, including tea towels and bath mats.


The gardens provide ample opportunity to relax and enjoy nature at its best, with seats and benches dotted around in secluded corners and looking out over fields and dales.  There is a barbeque stand and large patio area for outdoor cooking and  dining.  At the end of the garden there is a children’s play area with swings, slide and picnic table.  The beautiful private woodland supports varied fauna and flora, and you are welcome to wander or play there.

As we are in a farming hamlet we can’t have outdoor fireworks in the grounds as it may distress nearby livestock.


Off-road parking is available for 2 vehicles per property; more vehicles can be accommodated with prior notice.  We don’t recommend parking in the road as there will be farm vehicles passing at times and we’d like to protect your mirrors!

Children’s Play Area

The children’s play area has a platform with ladder and slide and a picnic table.  There are also two swings – one for older children and a moulded safety seat  for babies and toddlers.  It is within sight of the patio area and near the woods for exploring and making dens!


There is a laundry with  washing machine and dryer (new in 2018) provided for a small service charge and an ironing board & iron are available for your use.  We also have outdoor drying facilities in a corner of the garden.

Outdoor Eating

We have a patio area with tables and seating for up to 15 people.  There is a stone  stand for disposable BBQs – please feel free to bring your own and enjoy an al fresco meal.

Hope Cross cottage has its own large accessible rear patio with table and benches.
