Cressbrook Mill, Monsal Dale near Bakewell

Family-friendly apartments in Buxton
The Mill, Cressbrook, is a very spacious, fully equipped three bedroom holiday apartment within the converted 18th Century Cressbrook Mill, Monsal Dale within the Peak District National Park.

The Mill has two double bedrooms and one twin bedroom, a well equipped luxury kitchen, dining room, lounge, shower, bath and two WCs.

Shared landscaped gardens surround The Mill with many seating areas for the use of residents and guests, along with a large astroturf bowling green and shared games room.

The Mill is situated on the banks of the River Wye within the picturesque Monsal Dale, just a few minutes walk or cycle from the popular Monsal Trail. Starting from The Mill you can enjoy a tranquil riverside path walk, as well as enjoying many footpaths and bridleways, or quiet rural roads ideal for cycling.

Enjoy the varied views from all the windows in the apartment. The living room looks out over the River Wye and the hills of Monsal Dale. From the hallway you get views down the valley towards Monsal Head. The kitchen has views over the old mill race which has the soothing sounds of water running through it.

We bought The Mill whilst living overseas so we could use it as our UK base during long school holidays. It is therefore fully equipped as a family home rather than being equipped as a basic holiday rental.


One large superking-size bedroom, one double bedroom and one large twin bedroom sleeping a total of six people, luxury kitchen, dining room, lounge, bathroom with WC, bath and shower and separate cloakroom with second WC.

The master bedroom has a superking size bed, two windows overlooking Monsal Dale and the River Wye, fitted wardrobes and a two-seater sofa. It can be set up as two twin beds upon request.
The spacious twin bedroom is the same size as the master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and views over the bowling green and Monsal Dale.
The second double bedroom is located near the entrance of the apartment and has an arched ceiling as it was originally a store room within the mill.

The well equipped, high quality kitchen has granite worktops and Neff appliances - dishwasher, double oven, hob, american fridge freezer, microwave and Nespresso coffee machine (bring your own pods). The kitchen is open-plan onto the large dining room with a dining table comfortably seating six.

The dining room has double-aspect over the river Wye and surrounding Monsal Dale. Glazed double doors lead through into the lounge with two large sofas and separate armchair. The bright lounge is well equipped with flatscreen HDTV and Blu-ray / DVD player. Free wifi is provided.

The large bathroom has a shower cubicle, separate bath and WC. There is a separate cloakroom with a second WC. We also provide a washing machine and separate tumble dryer in the apartment.

There are many outside seating areas to choose from in the mature landscaped gardens.

Within Cressbrook Mill, for the free use of guests staying at The Mill, is a large astroturf bowling green (bowls provided) and a games room with full sized snooker table, pool table, table tennis, air hockey and some exercise machines.

Outside of peak season, we don't have fixed changeover days so you can start and end your holiday on a day that suits you.

The Mill will be available for your use from 3pm on the day of arrival up until 10am on the day of departure. For bookings of four nights or more, earlier arrival / later departure may be available depending on other bookings and cleaning schedules - contact us a few days before arrival to see if we can accommodate this.

In the underground parking we have a bike lock anchor point securely set in the concrete floor for locking bicycles to - please bring your own bike locks.

Towels and bedding provided.
Travel cot and high chair available. Guests need to provide own cot bedding.

Covid-19 Statement

We are delighted to be able to welcome guests to The Mill again, in line with Government guidelines. Given the current Coronavirus situation, we are taking extra precautions in cleaning The Mill both before and after the stay of all guests. Our professional cleaning company, HCD Cleaning ( always carry out a thorough cleaning of the entire apartment and are now using a viricidal cleaner. They have also implemented additional procedures to sanitise the apartment, concentrating on all high-touch surfaces: all tables, work surfaces, door handles, light switches etc will be wiped down using a K4 cleaning sanitiser on every clean.

Although there are about 30 properties in The Cressbrook Mill development, our apartment has an entrance way shared with only two other apartments. Both of these apartments are holiday homes, and infrequently used by the owners so we rarely see our neighbours.

Guest accommodation at this apartment offers DVD players and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to patios. This accommodation is furnished with dining tables and kitchen islands. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and separate dining areas.

Bathrooms include baths or showers and hairdryers. Guests can surf the web using complimentary wireless Internet access.

5/5 Excellent

Superb apartment in delightful location
One of the nicest holiday rental properties that we have stayed in. A peaceful location in a beautiful valley, close to the Monsal Trail for exploring. It was a delight to explore the local area on foot and by bike (but only on the trial by bike because the roads were VERY hilly!). The apartment was spacious, clean and very well equipped. The bed in the master room in particular was very comfy - a real home from home. Clare was very accommodating with answering all of our questions and the check in process very smooth.

5/5 Excellent
