Overview

Photos and Description of this 10 bedroom holiday home in Hayfield - Kinder Castle

The perfect rural retreat for family & friends

Kinder Castle enjoys a magnificent isolated position on the side of the mountain Kinder Scout in the Peak District National Park, and yet is only 24 miles from Manchester city centre.

A former shooting lodge that has been host to some great Victorians and was the hideaway of Agatha Christie, the castellated fortress encompasses a late Medieval Banqueting Hall, an original Inn, and linked accommodation around the four sides of a beautiful courtyard, that make for the perfect rural retreat for family and friends to congregate and celebrate and also enjoy the peace and solitude.

The Castle is set within the 6,000 acre National Trust Kinder Estate, and is accessed through 30 acres of private woodland grounds affording the best panoramas of Kinder and the Reservoir, to which it has the exclusive fishing rights.

Kinder Castle is a luxurious base from which to explore the Peak District, and a very impressive place to entertain at home, with a wide range of on-site activities available.

The Main House can accommodate 18 people. The House boasts two stunning kitchens and eating areas, with the main Dining Room seating 18 people.

A separate wing of the Castle contains the original entertainment areas that would have served the shooting parties, comprising the Medieval Banqueting Hall, Garret and Pub. They are in their original state and take time to be heated and serviced and also need to be preserved. These areas are available for residents to hire separately for special meals, drinks, dancing, workshops and gatherings at an additional cost. They are also available for weddings and parties to include additional guests, which will incur a venue hire charge at an additional £700 per week.

The Medieval Banqueting Hall can accommodate up to 50 people to dine, plus 30 people in the Garret room, and the Estate can host larger parties for events using various tenting options when booked as a venue.

Nearest Airport
28 Miles
Manchester Airport

Kinder Castle is 2.5 miles out of Hayfield village, which is situated in the north west of the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire. Buxton lies 10 miles to the North. The house is 45 minutes drive (24 miles) from Manchester city centre and Manchester Airport; 28 miles (50 minutes drive) from Sheffield and 50 miles (1 hour) from Chester.

There are considerable rail links from two stations in New Mills, 3 miles east of the village. It is within easy reach of the M67 motorway near Glossop in the south, with the M1 and M6 less than an hour away.

Kinder Castle is in the The Peak National Park which offers many outdoor pursuits such as climbing, caving, hill walking, rambling, sailing, riding and cycling. The Peaks have annual festivals such as well dressings and village fetes such as the Hayfield May Queen which is the oldest Beltane celebration in the country. The area has a high number of ancient monuments, often in enigmatic moorland settings.

There are many stately homes within a 45 minutes drive, including Chatsworth, Haddon Hall, Lyme Park, Harwick Hall, Eyam Hall, Kedleston and Tissington Hall nearby.

The Spa town of Buxton is 20 minutes away, with its famous Opera House, Museum and Arts venues. Other Derbyshire towns and villages of interest are Bakewell with its Monday Market, Ashbourne, Matlock, Bath, Tideswell and Eyam.

Children can be well amused at Alton Towers in Staffordshire, Gullivers World and The Heights of Abraham in nearby Matlock. Lyme Park has a great outdoor play area.

Stockport and Manchester offer plentiful theatres, galleries, cinemas and museums.

The area has a wealth of good pubs, cafes and restaurants. The Sportsman and The Pack Hosre are the nearest, about 2 miles away, with a range of ales and large menus.
