Jane and Jonathan would like to welcome you to The Manager's House,.

Excellent location for walking and cycling with the Limestone Way and High Peak Trail and the magnificent Monsal Head within easy reach. Nearby Gratton Dale is well known for wild flowers including orchids in season.
The Manager's House is a substantial Victorian house with a south facing garden, enjoying a spacious country kitchen with an oil fired range and a comfortable sitting room with a welcoming Clearview wood stove. Also on the ground floor are a utility room and a bathroom with a shower-bath. The house is fully double glazed and centrally heated. Upstairs are two bedrooms, one with a Super King sized double and one with twin beds. Both have views over the garden and fields to the hamlet of Dale End.
