At the northern end of Dovedale, the pretty market village of Hartington is set in some of the very best walking country of the Peak District. Many ancient routes and trackways still meet in the village, where impressive stone cottages boast of its past wealth. Built around a spacious square and legendary duck pond, the commanding limestone buildings include the Charles Cotton Hotel, Hartington Hall, Market Hall and St Giles Church, dotted between a vast selection of gift shops, cafes and pubs. One of the most striking buildings in the village is Bank House, a grade II listed building with volumes of character and history behind it.
Ideally located on the main street, the property has nine bedrooms and is profitably run by the long-term owners as a guest house. The front door opens to an entrance lobby and then into the hallway. With views of the village, the sunny dining room has large sash windows and features immaculate oak flooring and a homely fireplace with tiled hearth.
The lounge’s sash windows also overlook the village and is the ideal gathering point for travellers to unwind around the cosy Clearview log burner. There is a guest W/C and a practical boot room as well as some under stair storage in the rear hallway. The large dining kitchen has a centre island and beech cabinetry with integrated fridge, dishwasher, a double electric oven and hob. There is also an Alpha range cooker under a recess and a double sink and drainer in front of a mullion window. A utility room leads from the kitchen to a spacious pantry and then on to a charming, vaulted cellar with original stone shelving.
On the first floor are five guest bedrooms, each well-appointed for guest accommodation including flatscreen TV’s, tea/coffee stations and wardrobes. Three rooms have en-suite bathrooms and the remaining two bedrooms share a separate guest bathroom. Three of the rooms overlook the village marketplace with extended views of the fields beyond, where lambs can be seen frolicking in the sun.
The second-floor hosts three family bedroomsand a smaller additional bedroom or office. These rooms all share a family bathroom which also provides good storage space below the eaves. On a split level is another guest bedroom with a velux window and an en suite shower room. There is a fire escape leading to the rear of the building, where a laundry room is located. Some stairs to the side of the property lead to an outdoor terrace and garden space with a greenhouse and storage shed. There is an additional shed and a garage to the rear of the property.
Although this property is ideal to step into as a going concern, it was once a family home and could easily be returned to this purpose. If you are looking for a large family home, work from home option or a multi-generational property, then this is also worth a look.
