Situated in the beautiful Peak District this end terrace 2-bed house enjoys fantastic views of Froggatt Edge and sunshine all day. 15min drive from Sheffield. Local pub and community shop. Open plan kitchen, free parking, wireless internet, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, central heating, wood burner, power shower and large collection of local guidebooks.

Die Unterkunft
It's a four floored end-terrace house next to a field full of wild grass and flowers. The ground floor has a large open-plan kitchen that opens onto a patio and small garden. There are herbs on the patio, a traditional BBQ and Brazier.

The first floor (actually the ground floor if you enter from the road) has a porch / storage room and a large lounge with floor to ceiling bookshelves, sofas, wood burning stove, TV, and plenty of plants.

Upstairs is a double bedroom with views over Hay Wood and Froggatt Edge out one window, and down Hope Valley out the other. There's a bathroom with a power shower, and a study which will remain locked during rentals.

Last, but not least is the Attic room which belongs to our two boys. There are two single beds with two further pull-out mattresses if needed, plenty of floor space, and a load of kids books, Lego and other paraphernalia. Note that the single beds in the boys bedroom are a little on the narrow side.

Zugang für Gäste
There is free wifi in the house. Guests will be able to access everything apart from the locked study and the shed. Instructions for various bits and pieces are listed in House Manual.

Things To Do Whilst Staying
 
Here are a few of our favourite walks, bike rides, pubs and other nice ways to spend your time whilst staying at our house. Please feel free to use our guidebooks (on the shelf in the lounge) and maps (on the shelf in the porch), but please respect them and put them back when you've finished with them. 
 
Walking
 
There are plenty of walks you can do right from the door. I'll list a few of our favourites in order of length.
 
1. Village Loop / Community Shop - 5-10 minutes / 1/2 a mile.
Turn left out of the front door and almost immediately there is a gap in the wall leading into the field adjacent to the house. Head through this and down the field. You can either walk through the allotments or skirt around to the right under the large ash tree (there's a brilliant rope swing in the ash tree). When you get to the river at the bottom simply turn left and follow the path along to the bridge in the Centre of the village. From here you can either turn left and head back along the pavement past the Derwent Gallery, back along to the house, or you can turn right, cross the bridge, and pop into the Community Shop in the Vestry of the Church about a hundred and fifty yards after the traffic lights on the right.
 
2. Froggatt Edge Loop - 1.5 hours / 4 miles
Turn right out of the front door and follow the pavement along for about a third of a mile through the village, across the bridge over the river Derwent. Almost immediately take the footpath across the large, flat field, signposted to Froggatt. Froggatt is another village about a mile down the valley, There's a very old and beautiful stone path through the woods that, oddly, doesn't follow the river, which take you right into Froggatt village. Along the way you'll go through a number of stone stiles ' gates, pass the 'Gruffalo Pond', cross an ancient stone bridge, and get a good mix of ancient woodland and open country. If you are feeling adventurous you can break off left from this path at half a dozen points on minor foot paths which generally lead up onto the Edge about 400 feet above, but the best loop is to keep going into Froggatt. Stop and check out the lovely stone bridge before carrying on another few hundred meters to a footpath on the left by a gate. Follow this up through the woods and an open field to cross a main road. On the other side of the road be careful to follow the main path which initially bears right a little. It then meanders up through the woods past a wooden gate, before emerging from a tumble of boulders directly underneath the rock climbing venue of Froggatt Edge. If you are happy scrambling / climbing there is a taxing route up the stone-choked gulley to the immediate right of Froggatt Pinnacle (and the route Valkyrie). Otherwise head right along the path along the base of the edge beneath such classic climbs as Great Slab, Brown's Eliminate and Chequers Buttress, before the path eventually meets the main path along the top of the edge. Turn left and follow this back, with fantastic views, for about a mile and a half to the main road. If you spot it there's a stone circle off to the right of the main path about half way along. Take care crossing the main road diagonally right to the woods gate. Steep steps lead down to a small stream where you'll have to Boulder hop over, before a short climb up the other side. From the top of the climb take a minor path to the left down through a narrow wooden gateway, past an old quarry on the right (Pooh's Place), and on down through the woods. Keep going down and ignore side paths and you should emerge on lane which comes out at the church in the village (a hundred yards from where the track meets the road, on the right, is the community shop in the vestry of the church where you can get teas, coffees, and cake after your walk!). To get back to the house just turn left and follow the pavement back.
 
Extension:
 
If you fancy keeping low you can continue along the river (either side) from Froggatt down to the bridge between Froggatt and Calver. This is a lovely walk and very peaceful at the beginning and end of the day. A nice loop is to follow the river from Froggatt down one bank and back along the other. It's about a 3/4 of a mile between the two bridges. The lower bridge marks a good wild swimming spot if the weather is good, but be warned that the river always seems cold!
 
 
 
 
3. White Edge Loop - 2.5-3 hours / 6 miles
 
Start out as for the Froggatt Loop, but when you get up onto the edge, turn right instead of heading back home. This leads you along the top of Curbar Edge to Curbar Gap (a further mile and a half), a popular spot which almost always plays host to an ice cream van, and sometimes a coffee van. From Curbar Gap go through the wooden gate in the top corner of the car park near the road, follow the grassy track along, then down into a dip, across a brook on some wooden boards (make sure you don't bear left before the dip), and then steeply up a grassy flank onto the main footpath which leads back left along White Edge. White Edge is not as craggy and distinct as Froggatt or Curbar, but feels much more wild and remote. You are quite likely to see a herd of deer, perhaps even some rutting stags if you are lucky. There's a trig point about a quarter of the way along (slightly off to the right) which marks the high point, from which there are some excellent 360 degree views. Follow the footpath along for a couple of miles until you get to a stone wall with a gap in it leading across the path at right angles to it. Turn left along the far side of this wall, and head down through a small stand of Birch trees before heading across a field to the main road where you come out by the excellent Grouse Pub. After you've stopped off for a pint (they are happy with dogs children and muddy boots) continue down the main road for 25m until there the stile on the right. Cross this and follow the faint footpath through the field unti you enter the woods. From here follow the network of footpaths down through the woods back to the church / community shop in the village.
 
4. Hathersage ' George Mellor's Cutlery Factory And Kitchen Shop - 1.5 hours / 4 miles
 
One more walk worth describing locally is the flat walk along the river into Hathersage, the next village up the valley. It's a lovely walk, if a little boggy in the first field, and a little muddy underfoot in the wooded section after rain. Head out of the house right wards towards the bridge in the middle of the village. Cross the bridge and then cross the road almost immediately, opposite the church / community shop. There's a narrow gate leading into the field. From here it's easy enough to follow the path, keeping pretty much to the river, all the way into Hathersage. Just before you get into the village of Hathersage the path turns into a tarmacked roads and crosses a cattle grid before coming out on the main road linking the two villages. Cross the road and follow the footpath ' pavement into the village, passing along the way the amazing George Mellor's Kitchen Shop and cutlery factory (and pop in to the see where the modern traffic light was invented!). In Hathersage you will find a bunch of touristy gear shops, cafes, a nice deli (Coleman's) and a couple of pubs, the pick of which is probably the Scotsman's Pack (which is tucked away so you;ll have to ask for directions). You can then either reverse your route, or you can walk up through the village for 3/4 of a mile, past the Millstone Pub, and take the motorable farm track (gated) about a 1/4 of a mile past the pub on the right. This leads, after about a mile and a half, back into Grindleford. Actually it leads into Upper Padley, a kind of suburb of Grindleford. There's a truly magical picnic spot about half way along here where you can eat your lunch amongst a scattering of discarded millstones from the quarry above. Upper Padley has a stunning old chapel with some interesting grounds behind it which are worth a look, and then the infamous Grindleford Station Cafe which does very, very good egg and chips. The quickest way back is to follow the station approach road up to the main road, turn right past the lovely Maynard Hotel, and then down through the village back to the house. It's almost exactly a mile back from the cafe / station. 
 
Extension:
 
Above the Millstone Pub on the outskirts of Hathersage is the amazing collection of Millstone Edge, Lawrencefield / Bole Hill Quarry, Surprise View, Mother Cap and Owler Tor and Padley Gorge. All are within realistic walking distance, stunningly beautiful, pretty busy, and also accessible from a car park at Surprise View. You can climb up, or drop down from all these places either through the lovely quiet birch trees and millstones of Lawrencefield / Bole Hill Quarrry, or down the chocolate box, but consequently often busy Padley Gorge, both of which bring you out at the conveniently located Statin Cafe in Upper Padley.
 
Cycling
 
The best way to explore the local area on bike, either road or mountain, is to explore the segments on www.strava.com. We organize a cycle sportive in September each year, details of each route are listed on the website www.grindlefordgoat.co.uk. The Nanny route is around 60km, the Billy is just over 100km. Both are pretty hilly! If you just have an hour or so, then turn left out of the house, head south out of the village, and turn right along the now-closed road as you crest the hill on the edge of the village. This used to be the quickest route into the infamous village of Eyam (of plague renown), but the road partly collapsed a few years back and it's now a lovely quiet walking and cycling route, with a tricky section that you may want to dismount for on the edge of Eyam. From Eyam (which has a couple of lovely tea shops, a museum and plenty of interesting historical things to see and read about - ask about the vinegar stones, they are cool) you can head up past the YHA onto the top of Sir William Hill (from here you can nip back down into Grindlford for a super-quick, if hilly, ride, or you can turn left as you leave the woods, and head along past the amazing Barrel Pub (is there a pub with a better view?), along to Bretton (more subsidence here, but ignore it again as you can walk your bikes around), past the gliding club, and down to the edge of Hathersage where you come out near the Plough pub. From here don't head back along the main road into Grindlford - it's narrow, dark, and dangerous, but head in the direction of the village, but turn right after a few hundred meters, and follow this up a steep set of bends and through some lovely, lovely woods along Leam Lane, along to Sir William Hill where a left turn leads steeply down into the village via the lovely Sir William Pub. The whole round can be done inside an hour easily enough if you are fit and is mainly on very quiet roads.
 
Running
 
You'd be hard pushed to find better routes to run than the walks that are described above. If you fancy something a little meatier then there's a race organized in the village each March called the Grindleford Gallop which is a 21 mile route taking in a good variety of the local terrain including a blast through the grounds of Chatsworth House. Details: http://www.grindlefordgallop.co.uk/
 
Climbing
 
On the shelf in the lounge is a fairly comprehensive collection of climbing guidebooks which you are welcome to use. Please put them back and treat them with respect; they are really important to us. The closest climbing to us is up on Froggatt Edge. It's a 30-45 minute walk depending on which route you take and how fast you go, or you can drive over and walk in. Probably best to consult the guidebooks for detailed information on where to park etc. For reference the following crags are also pretty close by:
 
Strange - 5/10 minute drive depending on which bit you go to 
Curbar - 5 minutes
Gardoms - 5 minutes
Stoney Middleton - 5 minutes
Cratcliffe - 20 minutes
Cheer ale - 20 minutes
 
Caving
 
If you are into your caving then you will know more about the sport than we do. However there are a few novelty caves nearby that can provide some fun and games especially in wet weather. 
 
1. Windy Ledge at Stoney Middleton. Use the Peak Limestone climbing guidebook to locate Windy Ledge at Stoney Middleton. It's a 5 minute drive and a 5 minute walk / scramble from the house. Once you are on Windy Ledge, which is a fantastically exposed 1 metre wide ledge overlooking the village of Stoney Middleton, locate the only obvious cave entrance and head on in. Head torches recommended, but it has been done without, this is a level tunnel which comes out after about a hundred metres at a precipitous muddy path. You can either descend this, or return the way you came. Kids love this route, but be aware that it is exposed and not for the faint of heart.
 
2. Robin Hood's Cave at Stanage Edge. Use the Stanage climbing guidebook to locate the Popular End of Stanage (10 minute drive and a 10 minute walk). Use the same guide to locate the route 'Robin Hood Crack'. You can access the cave from below or above, each requiring a short, but tricky scramble. Neither is massively exposed, but a slip could be nasty. However, the cave is a treasure. Big enough to sleep a dozen adults it's a popular haunt for many locals and makes a nice adventurous objective for a short excursion.
 
Swimming
 
There are swimming pools in Bakewell, Chesterfield and Sheffield, but there's also the amazing open air lido in Hathersage. There can't be many public pools with a backdrop and ambience as this place. There's a timetable online which you ought to check before heading up there as it's sometimes closed to the public. 
 
Wild Swimming
 
There are also numerous wild swimming spots locally, pretty much all of which are not strictly allowed, but we use them and are discrete about doing so. The best of the lot is called Slippery Stones and is a bit of a trek away. Check online for details. During the week you can get to within a mile of it by driving to the end of the three reservoirs (Howden, Derwent and Ladybower). On the weekends the last 5 miles of the road along the reservoirs (from Fairhome) is closed. It's a lovely walk / bike ride. The pool is stunning - a relatively small deepening in a tumbling stream, with plenty of opportunity for diving and jumping. It warms up quicker than the local rivers and reservoirs.Talking of which there are lots of local spots worth seeking out. You can paddle in the village here down by the bridge. If you walk up through the playing field, past the all weather courts, and on to the wall and wooden bench, there's a set of steps leading down to the river at a particularly deep and shaded spot. A good jumping spot is off the bridge over the main road between Froggatt and Calver, a few hundred metres below the chequers Pub (which is not worth going to!). Lastly you could check out a secret little reservoir on the moors. Drive from here towards Calver, turning left after a mile into Froggatt village, over the quaint stone bridge, and turn right at the T-Junction. A quarter of a mile further cross over the main road and continue to Curbar village. Wind through the village and turn left at the T junction. Follow the road steeply uphill to the popular tourist spot of Curbar Gap (ice cream van in situ at the top), but don't stop. Follow over the top for another 3/4 of a mile to another cross roads with a majore road (Baslow to Sheffield). Turn left here and continue for around 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile to a large, white, 5 bar gate on the left with parking for half a dozen cars. Park here, and go through the small gate at the side, to follow a fairly flat track for 3/4 of a mile to the reservoir. Lovely spot and you may see the herd of wild deer. Along the way there's also another stone circle set back from the pack on the right.
 
Eating & Drinking
 
In the village both the Sir William and the Maynard hotels do decent food. The Maynard is probably the better of the two, but is more expensive and a little more upmarket. There's also the infamous Grindleford Station Cafe which is a mile from the house and next to the train station (and at the bottom of the popular walk up Padley Gorge). Further afield the Barrel Pub up on Bretton Moor overlooking Eyam does good food with excellent views. You'd be as well to book if going on the weekend. Our favourite local pub is the Grouse. You can drive around to it in 5 minutes - head South towards Calver, turn left after a mile into Froggatt village where you turn left again over the bridge, following the road through the village and very steeply up hill to the main road where you turn left. The Grouse is then on your left after a couple of miles. Much better, though, is to walk up there in about 20-30 mins. Head right out of the house, walk through the village, and over the bridge before turning right up the lane just before the church. When the lane peters out head up through the woods. It's a 400 foot climb through the woods and there are various paths, all of which, if you bear right, eventually lead to the same road. If you get the right path then the Grouse is immediately on the left, if you are further down the hill you will have to walk up the road. It's a very friendly pub and does reasonable bar food. If you like fine dining then there's the Michelin starred Fischer's in Baslow. Very pricey, but rather special.
 
Shopping
 
If shopping is your thing (it's not really ours!) then Bakewell is probably the best place to head to. There's a nice art gallery in the village called the Derwent Gallery (turn right out of the front door). 
Situated in the beautiful Peak District this end terrace 2-bed house enjoys fantastic views of Froggatt Edge and sunshine all day. 15min drive from Sheffield. Local pub and community shop. Open plan kitchen, free parking, wireless internet, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, central heating, wood burner, power shower and large collection of local guidebooks.

Grindleford, Derbyshire, Vereinigtes Königreich

In the village is a community shop, located about 500m away in the church vestry, the Sir William Hotel (about 300m away) and the Maynard Hotel (about 1,000m away). There's also the Derwent Art Gallery. There's a lovely short walk through the village alongside the river and award winning allotments.

The village of Grindleford is a crossing point for many walks and features on a lot of cycle routes. The community shop serves hot drinks and home-baked cakes so is popular with both walkers and cyclists. For cyclists The Sir William Hill is a popular and testing Hill Climb of 1.1 miles which starts in the village next to the hotel. The website (URL HIDDEN) is a useful resource and includes and events calendar. Here's a little history of the village: (URL HIDDEN)
