Holiday Rental House
Perfectly placed in the Peak District between Buxton & Bakewell in the heart of the village of Taddington, these creatively renovated properties offer fabulous, flexible, self catering accommodation with some incredible, unique features. Ideal for up to 20 adult guests (or 26 guests including children) The Star is perfect for families wanting to explore the Peak District from a luxury base full of character. From the outside these are an attractive row of three deceptively spacious, traditional, Derbyshire, stone cottages. Yet from the inside they have been transformed to offer an exclusive use venue with hidden surprises Lots of style and thought has been put into this fabulous renovation resulting in a venue with a fascinating history, oodles of character and charm.

Ideal for up to 20 adult guests (or 26 guests including children) The Star is perfect for families wanting to explore the Peak District from a luxury base full of character. From the outside these are an attractive row of three deceptively spacious, traditional, Derbyshire, stone cottages. Yet from the inside they have been transformed to offer an exclusive use venue with hidden surprises Lots of style and thought has been put into this fabulous renovation resulting in a venue with a fascinating history, oodles of character and charm. The properties in total have nine bedrooms (all of which can be either twins or superking doubles and some rooms are family rooms) with 2 x family bathrooms and 6 en suites The Star has an abundance of living areas from cosy living rooms with log-burning stoves to spacious, quirky spaces with old-fashioned billiards table offering you the flexibility of all being together or finding your own space if you wish. Step downstairs and you will discover the real treat of the most amazing open plan kitchen/dining room with sunken conservatory- a hexagonal shaped room with a glass ceiling creating a bright and airy space giving you the feeling of outdoor dining all year round for up to 24 guests. The conservatory has double doors leading out onto the three cottages' extraordinary shared garden, landscaped on different levels with a flagged terraced directly outside the main house. Steps lead down to a lawned area which then leads to a lower level offering a totally private patio area that creates a lovely intimate space for outdoor dining and socialising. Booking Information: We generally offer a set check in day of either Friday or Monday, with a choice of length of stay being a 3 night weekend, 4 night mid week or a week long stay. While you are very welcome to come for a shorter stay the price would be the same. Bookings cannot be made through TripAdvisor, in order to book you will need to contact us and book with Peak Venues directly. Prices on TripAdvisor may not be accurate, in order to obtain the correct price that the property can be booked at please contact us. Please note that the arrival and departure times over the festive holidays differ from the standard check in details stated in the Terms & Conditions. This period is a fixed stay and you are welcome to come and go within these dates but the price will remain the same. We really encourage you to email with your group size and the type of event you are planning to enable us to send our available, most suitable properties on our Peak Venues website.

Quiet bypassed village with only one pub but lots of parking and a bus that stop almost outside the door! A slightly idiosyncratic layout of kitchen and dining area but it works very well and is really well equipped. Twenty four of us sat down...More

We stayed here as a group of 20 for a hen party on a rainy weekend in April. Although three separate cottages, this worked out well for us, as the thick walls and separate living meant some could go to sleep undisturbed whilst others partied...More
