Just a few hundred yards from the shores of Carsington Water, Stainsborough Hall is an outstanding country home with a thriving holiday cottage business

Near the hamlet of Hopton, in over 15 acres of land and adjoining the shores of Carsington Water, Stainsborough Hall combines a large and spacious family home with a charming countryside location.

Ideal for those with equestrian interests, the property benefits from extensive stabling and six enclosures of grazing land. It also offers excellent income potential in the form of four holiday cottages, beautifully and carefully converted from traditional stone outbuildings.

The original house is thought to have been built in 1699. Along with the adjacent buildings which now form the holiday cottages, it was the centre of what was reported to have been a tenanted farm on the Gell family estate, which dated back to the 14th century.

Now a handsome family home, combining characterful features with comfortable living spaces, the main house briefly comprises a reception hallway with a quarry-tiled floor and a large sitting room and dining room – both of which have open fires and far-reaching views.

The breakfast kitchen includes an oil-fired Aga and a range of fitted units, and is complemented by an adjoining utility room and pantry.

To the first floor, the master bedroom enjoys excellent views and benefits from an en suite bathroom, whilst three further bedrooms are served by a family bathroom.

The four holiday cottages – known as Henmore, Lathkill, Dovedale and Derwent – offer ten bedrooms in total, with comfortable living/dining kitchens and attractive features such as exposed ceiling beams. There is also a shared games room and utility area.

Further enhancing the property’s appeal, the cottages could readily be used to provide additional living accommodation to the main house, or as useful office/business space.

To the front of the cottages, a large gravelled area provides ample parking space and there’s also a communal garden area with a pond and picturesque views of rolling hills.

The thoughtful layout of the grounds ensures a degree of privacy for the house when the holiday cottages are in use. The Hall is accessed via a long, tree-lined driveway with the property’s grazing land to either side, and is surrounded by mature gardens offering well-stocked borders, neat lawns and terraced areas. A double garage and a hard-surfaced tennis court with a pavilion complete the extensive package.

Ideally situated for those with a love of the countryside, there are numerous opportunities for leisure pursuits in the local area including walking, cycling, horse riding and climbing. Carsington Water itself offers sailing and fishing, whilst a wider range of amenities can be found in nearby Wirksworth and Ashbourne.
