About 4 Stable Yard Cottage

Stay on the Hardwick estate in this restored stableyard building with room for six people.

Sitting in the heart of the Hardwick Hall estate is this former stableyard building. In contrast to its modest, linear exterior, elegantly finished décor runs throughout the three-bedroom house. It dates back to the 16th-century where the formidable ‘Bess of Hardwick’ would have resided close by in the main house. 

As a guest you’re invited to explore the gardens, main house and Stainsby Mill free of charge. You’ll also have 2,500 acres of parkland, woodland and farmland on your doorstep. And if you don’t want to leave your canine companion at home, the cottage and parklands are dog-friendly. 

Explore a little further afield and visit other historic properties in under an hour’s drive, including Chatsworth House, Kedleston Hall and Clumber Park. You’ll also be within a 30 minute drive to the outskirts of the Peak District.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
