The Hay Loft has been carefully created out of a mellow stone hay loft in the midst of the sleepy little hamlet of Snitterton. Its dramatic vaulted ceilings, attractive decoration, comfortable furniture and fittings, quality bed linen and towels together with its wonderful setting in a secret little valley make it a really great holiday retreat.
Hidden away in beautiful Wensley Dale, locations don't come much better than this. There are superb views across the valley on all the lovely walks from the cottage. A brisk evening stroll along the road by the river will soon get you to the Three Stags and Square and Compass pubs in Darley Bridge. Matlock, with all its county town facilities is just five minutes drive over the hill.
Don't forget to visit nearby Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and the Peak Steam Railway. Other treats include Calver Edge's breathtaking views, Monsal Dale's wonderful waterfalls, the 'little Switzerland' of Matlock Gorge, Sunday breakfast in the Devonshire Arms in Beeley and the ultimate of meals in Stone's restaurant in Matlock. Make sure you get back in time for a drink on the little patio as the swifts and house martins swoop overhead.
A lovely vaulted lounge, dining and kitchen area. The lounge has a comfortable settee and chair, flat screen T.V. D.V.D, SKY and Wi-Fi together with a glowing inset electric fire. The dining area has a nice little table and chairs. The superb kitchen has quality fitted units, halogen hob, oven, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and automatic washer/dryer. A vaulted double bedroom. An adjoining bathroom with bath/hand held shower and W.C.

"The Hayloft is the ideal place for a quiet getaway with lovely surroundings. Upon arrival we were greeted by the friendly hosts who were incredibly welcoming and approachable throughout the duration of our stay. The accommodation itself was very clean, cosy and well-equipped. We found the hayloft to be in a convenient location; secluded and peaceful however being a short drive away from a supermarket. We had the option to take a walk in the local area and also venture a little further to nearby attractions and nature reserves. We were often kept company by Mars Bar the friendly cat and it was lovely to have fantastic, picturesque views from our front door. We were also lucky enough to see newborn lambs on our final day. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and after recommending to our family and friends, we hope to revisit the Hayloft again in the near future."
