Middle House is a superb, century's old house looking over the green in the lovely village of Thorpe with its 'Old Dog' pub and fantastic Peak District countryside all around. Sit in the lovely front garden with your breakfast and watch village life go by. Wander along to the pub, renowned for its scrumptious food, for lunch. Just laze away a peaceful afternoon in and around the house.
The view is absolutely breathtaking as you drop down from the village into the valley. Craggy Dove Dale with its famous stepping stones, Lovers Leap and Jacob's Ladder is off to the right.

"Just to say thank you for our stay at Middle House in Thorpe last week. We loved the traditional cottage - full of character and perfect as it is! Our thanks to the owners for sharing their home. It was very well situated for walks and the arrangements in the house were perfect for our large extended family, especially the lovely kitchen/dining/sitting room area where we could congregate for meals and evenings playing board games. It was also beautifully warm, which pleased my 86-year-old father immensely! We would love to come again sometime."
