Welcome to Mayfield Hideaway.
Mayfield Hideaway. Two unique Peak District self accommodation properties: a character beamed barn with a log-burner and a long forgotten 1960s Bluebird Senator Static, now lovingly upcycled into a cosy Scandi inspired caravan. Both sleep 2-4 and are tucked on a 2 acre site which was once a farm, with amazing panoramic views across Derbyshire and Staffordshire.
The properties are secluded and separated by a large pond and hedges for privacy. Hares are often spotted racing through the neighbouring fields. At night listen out for tawny owls and take a moment to stargaze if you get a clear night.
About the Local Area
Mayfield Hideaway is in the Staffordshire Peak District. Close to the Derbyshire border, offering the best of both counties.
Our garden borders the Peak District and we are just 2 miles from picturesque market town Ashbourne with its gorgeous gift shops, delis, cafes, antique shops, pubs, gin and real ale bars, restaurants and wide-range of supermarkets, plus Shrovetide, a two day long medieval football match in February, and an arts festival in August.
You can take a 6km round hike to the Okeover Arms through the breathtaking Okeover estate from your hideaway, or take a short drive to walk in picturesque Ilam and Dovedale – Tripadvisor’s No 1 Peak District attraction.
There are plenty of great local country pubs to share too.
Nearby Carsington Water is perfect for birdwatching, water sports, walking and cycling, we’re also perfectly placed close to the start of the Tissington, Manifold and High Peak Cycle tracks with sights like Thor’s Cave on route.
Alton Towers is only 10 miles away. Leek has more antique shops, and is close to The Roaches for excellent rock climbing and walking and atmospheric Ludd’s Church, a 1000m chasm in the rocks which legend has it is the Green Chapel of Arthurian legend.
National Trust places Ilam and Sudbury Museum of Childhood are under 15 minutes away and well worth a visit.
Spa town Buxton with its beautiful gardens and theatre, Bakewell with its world famous puds, Robin Hood’s Stride for climbing and bouldering and iconic Chatsworth House are all within easy reach.
Or venture further into Staffordshire and decorate a pot in The Potteries at Wedgwood or Emma Bridgewater factories. The New Vic in Staffordshire also offers top class theatre in the round.
We’re Penny & Rik, we moved to Mayfield in May 2017 after 10 years in suburban Nottingham and several years in London. We fell in love with the feeling of hiding away up here on a hill looking out into the Peak District.
Rik makes video games and Penny is a travel writer, we’re passionate about making holidays happier, and look forward to welcoming you.
