Hope Valley, Bamford
Coming Soon

We’ve got an exciting new opportunity for two property guardians to move into a spacious stone-built mansion in the heart of the Peak District. Well suited to seasoned walkers and outdoor enthusiasts, this is a rare chance for you to have unparalleled access to some of the most beautiful scenery and walks the country has to offer. You’d also be just 30 minutes drive from Sheffield city centre.

What’s available: A spacious fully-furnished 7-bedroom house.

The property

Located in the Hope Valley area of the Peak District, this large stone-built mansion owned by the Quaker community and managed by Dot Dot Dot, offers fully-furnished living, with two double bedrooms, a sitting room, already equipped kitchen, and bathroom with bath and shower.

The house is in excellent cosmetic condition and is spectacular, being built on a massive scale with double height rooms, wooden floors and most original features intact. These double rooms in the Peak District have large windows which look out into heavily wooded countryside. There is also a basement area with a washing machine and dryer.

Outdoor space: The property sits within a wooded garden, and is home to over 10 acres of orchard and land.

Parking/bike storage: Free parking and bike storage on site.

The local area

The village of Bamford has a lovely atmosphere with a combination of locals and visitors looking to explore the beauty of the Peaks.

The Adventure Hub Indoor Climbing Centre is just 15 minutes walk down the lane – great for those rainy days or during the winter months. They also offer guided climbing courses out in the national park itself.

In whichever direction you choose to begin your walks, you’ll be led across ancient bridges over the River Derwent, following upwards terrain towards gritstone ridges and rambling across striking moorland. The best nearby hiking spots include Bamford Edge and Robin Hood’s Cave – you should also check out the Coach and Horses Rock Formation overlooking Ladybower Reservoir.

A short walk away is the recently revamped Wild Kettle Cafe, serving the best coffee in the area. A great place to finish off a long walk with one of their warming toasties and a mug of tea.

The best local pub, The Anglers Rest, is in the heart of Bamford village. With its charming old fashioned interior and exceptional views, it’s a great spot for a sunny pint in their beer garden or for lunch on a chilly afternoon.
