Mr & Mrs Herd, Greater Manchester
After two years of other agents failing to sell our home, we had at last found the right team. You certainly put all other agents in the shade.
Charming family sized double fronted stone house with excellent spacious accommodation. This oil fired centrally heated three bedroomed property has been fully restored and retains many of its original features including beamed ceilings, flagged windowsills, stone fireplaces, cheese press dated 1849, oak lintels and hardwood windows. It is situated in the idyllic Peak District village of Hollinsclough, in the upper Dove Valley, the backdrop to a number of TV programmes and films. The house commands views to front and rear of the unspoilt limestone Crome and Hollins Hills. Accommodation includes large entrance hall, two receptions, fitted kitchen and family bathroom. Lawns to front and side and a cobbled driveway with dry stone wall boundaries.
Hollinsclough is a small, picturesque Peak District village, in the upper Dove valley. It is a stone built village, set amid some splendid unspoilt limestone scenery. The attractive stone houses, chapel and village hall are flanked by the remarkable peaks of Crome, Hollins and Parkhouse Hills; coral reef limestone peaks that rise gracefully to give them the appearance of mountains.
The position of the village, between moorland, open hills, rivers, streams and the peaks make it a unique location for a wide variety of activities. The stunning scenery has provided the backdrop for a number of films and TV programmes including Peak Practice and films such as Pride and Prejudice.
Hollinsclough had a thriving silk weaving cottage industry back in the 18th century. Material was transported by pack horse to the silk mills at Macclesfield. Several of the old pack horse bridges and footpaths remain in the area as walks, cyclepaths and bridleways.
There is still a thriving school, situated behind its 19th century predecessor, the Frank Wheldon School, an imposing building topped with a wooden 'dove-cote' bell tower which once summoned the children from outlying farms to school. It is now an outdoor centre.
The village has an active community association intent on keeping many of its folk memories and traditions alive.
