Derbyshire Peak District


Hopton Hall - A truly special place set in the Derbyshire Dales on the edge of the Peak District National Park, Hopton Hall sits in 30 acres of secure grounds. Hopton is two miles from Wirksworth, 'The Gem of the Peaks', famous for its art festivals, well dressings and historic Ecclesbourne Valley Railway. It sits adjacent to Carsington Water Reservoir between Ashbourne and Matlock, within easy reach of Chatsworth and Alton Towers.

For over 600 years the Hall was home to the Gell family of Derbyshire and hosted guests including Oliver Cromwell, Mary Queen of Scots and Queen Caroline. Its courtyard has been refurbished to create five comfortable, homely cottages where families and groups large and small come together to 'Meet in the Middle' of England. The cottages enjoy shared use of an indoor heated pool, children's playground with swings, slide and climbing frame and a paddock with football goals, volleyball nets, picnic tables and BBQ facilities. Three of the cottages have private gardens for BBQ's/outdoor dining and, by arrangement, all are invited to enjoy the Hall grounds with its lake and historic walled Summer Rose Gardens.

Meet the owner

Emma or Spencer Tallis

We (Bill and Julie Thomas) arrived in Derbyshire 20 years ago. Having worked in many countries Bill took a form of early retirement in 2010. His passions now include charity work, real ale and rugby, and I love people, knitting and gardening. Having three adult children and two soppy golden retrievers we were attracted to Hopton Hall as a place our whole family would happily gather together for years to come. Understanding the value of time together, owning holiday cottages became our new adventure. It is very rewarding to witness other groups of friends and family sharing the beauty of Derbyshire. We are very sociable, and are delighted to be living in the warm and friendly community of Hopton and Carsington. Together with the Hopton Hall Team we believe in customer excellence and strive to give a warm welcome to all who chose to holiday here and sharing this magical place.
