The Hall’s roots run deep, with mentions in the Domesday Book and associations with historic figures like Henry de Ferrers, the Cokaynes, the Harthills, and even Henry VIII. In 1259, Sir Richard de Hartle received a Papal Bull from Pope Alexander II at this very location. Though the original chapel ceased religious functions in 1546, its essence lives on in “The Chapel” and “Hartle Cottage”.

The eight unique cottages, adorned with antiques, surround a medieval cobbled courtyard. Each retains its original charm, from thick stone walls and oak beams to mullion windows and flagstone floors.

Explore National Trust sites like Riley Graves, Longshaw, Mam Tor, and South Peak. Marvel at the architecture of Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Hardwick Hall, and Kedleston Hall. Basic amenities include a shop just 3½ miles away and a welcoming pub a mere mile out.

All the fun with no drama

Early December we undertook a stag do booked through Hard Days Knight (HDK). Greg and the team there made the whole experience as easy and seamless as possible, helping us book amazing accommodation in Belper for 13 people and then finding us fantastic activities to fill the stag. Greg was a pleasure to wok with being friendly and understanding as our plans shifted around a bit and organised a shooting experience and pub tour for the stag both of which went down amazingly. The shooting experience as a fun filled morning of competition and laughs then the pub tour took us to some fantastic pubs, with great choices of beer and food. We'd all be happy to do the tour again and see what other pubs Greg would find for us! Through HDK we had transport to and from the activities sorted and it made the weekend flow so smoothly. I can't thank HDK enough for making it such an easy experience and I'd recommend them to anyone looking to organise a Stag or similar event. Thank you so much :)

First of all would love to say thank you to greg and the team from the start right up to the end they was always helpful and never to busy to help. We booked a stag weekend with them that consisted with a log cabin, quad biking and a zombie experience the whole group had an amazing time so much that we are now looking at doing it yearly (after convincing the wives). So Thank you to HDK for an amazing stag weekend that was planned by yourselves. Ben
