Holiday Rental House
Rock View sits just off Moorlands Lane, a quiet village road, that winds down to the River Derwent. Rock View is away from the main road and lies between Froggatt Edge and the river. Rock View is the perfect Peak District get away, with nature on your doorstep. Ideal for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers (close to the trans-Pennine route, the A623 to Manchester and Stockport). A perfect spot for walkers, rock climbers and cavers, cyclists, fly-fishing enthusiasts, ornithologists and nature watchers and for those just wanting a leisurely wander around the surrounding villages and countryside of the Derbyshire Dales. The historic villages of Stoney Middleton and Eyam are on the door-step and the historic country houses and gardens of Chatsworth (5 miles distant) and Haddon...Rock View sits just off Moorlands Lane, a quiet village road, that winds down to the River Derwent. Rock View is away from the main road and lies between Froggatt Edge and the river. Rock View is the perfect Peak District get away, with nature on your doorstep. Ideal for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers (close to the trans-Pennine route, the A623 to Manchester and Stockport). A perfect spot for walkers, rock climbers and cavers, cyclists, fly-fishing enthusiasts, ornithologists and nature watchers and for those just wanting a leisurely wander around the surrounding villages and countryside of the Derbyshire Dales. The historic villages of Stoney Middleton and Eyam are on the door-step and the historic country houses and gardens of Chatsworth (5 miles distant) and Haddon hall are within easy driving distance. Walk from the door into stunning scenery, with wild moors, dramatic rock edges, ancient woodland and the River Derwent. Being within England’s first designated national park Rock View is situated amidst the splendour of the Peak District scenery, yet the city of Sheffield is a mere 20 minutes drive. The Michelin recommended pub, The Chequers, is in the village and serves good home cooked food along with a gourmet menu. Several other pubs and restaurants are within easy reach in the local area and cater for all tastes and budgets. There is a variety of take-aways also within easy reach, some of which deliver. The local shop and delicatessen at Calver, 1 mile away ,sells local produce, fabulous locally made bread, meat and vegetables and is a good all-round grocery store with an off- license. Chatsworth farm-shop is only 5 miles away. Access via shallow steps to the front door, accommodation all on one floor but not suitable for wheel-chair users. Sympathetically decorated and furnished to retain its style and character in keeping with its age, Rock View retains original features including stone mullion windows with leaded lights and stone fire places with a multi-fuel stove in the stylish and cozy sitting room, which has two large and elegant sofas. The dining room seats 6, should you wish to invite friends for dinner. Rock View kitchen is modern with an electric oven and gas hob, fridge and freezer and a washing machine (no dryer but drying can be easily arranged with the owner).

About the neighbourhood
Located in The Peak District National Park which was the first area of England to be designated as such in 1963. Historic country houses and gardens, such as Chatsworth and Haddon Hall, are surrounded by stunning and dramatic scenery with pretty villages and interesting market towns, such as Bakewell and The Spa town of Buxton all of which are within easy reach. Splendid gentle riverside walks or more challenging treks into high moorland to peaks,tors and wildernesses for all levels of experience. The area is renowned for its caving, bouldering and climbing activities. The River Derwent is a well known fly-fishing river. Nature and wildlife abound in this beautiful area. An abundance of tea-shops, cafes, restaurants and other eateries.
Getting around
To explore the countryside to its best advantage a car would be most beneficial but there is a very good bus service in and around the area and most places can be reached fairly easily. Railway Stations at: Sheffield, Hathersage, Grindleford and Dore.
