Elmwood And Lacewood

Out of Longnor village on the way to Leek, tucked away off the main road, you will find this stunning old converted water-powered sawmill, a large stone building which is now home to these two idyllic apartments, Elmwood and Lacewood. Both properties come fully equipped with a handcrafted wooden kitchen, sitting area and dining space, as well as a king-size bedroom and spacious bathroom. An outside courtyard can be shared between the properties so everyone can enjoy the sunshine - if we get any! - and space for off-road parking for two cars per property is available. Longnor can offer you the essentials in this lovely market village, with a few pubs, shops and cafes available, with larger towns like Bakewell and Buxton not far away at all - less than a 10 mile car journey. With the River Manifold being just a few minutes walk away from you, why not begin your walk by strolling along the river, with walks ranging from short ambles to serious upland treks. Over in Bakewell, known for its delicious pudding, head to Haddon Hall, a medieval and Tudor manor house popularly chosen for films and TV programmes and steeped in history, you can walk through the well-preserved rooms and around the picturesque gardens before heading to the gift shop for a souvenir, and the restaurant for a Bakewell tart! Afterwards go and visit the Peak Ales Visitor Centre to have a tasting session of the best tasty ales that the Peaks have to offer, with a Gin distillery now being on site as well and a shop, and a lovely team running it all and ready to answer any curious questions about the brewing process. Up to Buxton, you will find a lot of things to do in the famous spa town, like visiting the classic Georgian architecture across the city, like the Crescent, the Pump Rooms and the Opera House. And of course most popular of all and all around you there are endless opportunities for walking, cycling, fishing, and several other activities in the Peak District, all the while surrounded by stunning natural scenery. Elmwood and Lacewood will be the ideal place for a pair of couples looking to get away from a busy life, to relax in the Peaks and enjoy time in these gorgeous, unique properties.
