We had a lovely week at Cressbrook Mill with friends. The apartment is very spacious and beautifully presented with everything you're likely to need. It is very peaceful and has great views of the surrounding countryside. The children really enjoyed the games room which was well equipped with free air football, table tennis, snooker, pool and a mini gym at the back. The grounds are also very pleasant with interesting features from the old Mill. It is also a great place for star gazing at night.
There is ample parking both in the underground car park and around the outside of the mill (2 reserved spaces as well as extra unreserved areas). We took our bikes which we were able to lock up in the underground car park.
The location is brilliant. You can do interesting walks directly from the Mill. A simple 3 mile walk took us out the back of the mill, over the river, up the hill, onto the Monsall Trail, through a long tunnel, back down to the river, through neighboring Linton Mill, along the river, past some rock climbers and back to Cressbrook. Plenty to keep the children interested and you can even buy some fresh eggs as you re-enter the Mill grounds.
There are plenty of interesting places within 1/2 an hours drive. We visited Chatsworth, Castleton and Bakewell. Be sure to buy a traditional Bakewell pudding, they are gorgeous.
