The Old Wash House
Heathy Lea The Old Wash House is a cosy cottage with all of the modern touches you'd expect whilst conserving the historic features of an old wash house. The building had previously been used as a wash house for Heathy Lea House, and one of the pair of copper tubs, with the door to the fire underneath it, still remains as a feature in the large bathroom next to the original fireplace.
The three Healthy Lea properties are converted from within the former eighteenth century farmyard at Healthy Lea on the edge of Chatsworth Park, with far-reaching views over this stunning parkland scene and hills beyond. The grounds of Healthy Lea open directly into the park where guests are free to walk any time (with their dogs on a lead) through the 1100 acres of Chatsworth Park which owes much of its appearence to Lancelot 'Capability' Brown. Look out for the abandoned millstones on the rock edges, the knarled oak woodland, and the resident herds of red and fallow deer as you walk the short distance (20-30 mins) to Chatsworth house & garden.
Despite the remote location in the heart of the Derbyshire Dales, you can discover the A619 behind these properties, which links to the nearby villages of Bakewell, Pilsley, Chesterfield and beyond.
The Heathy Lea Cottages can all be booked alongside each other providing accommodation for up to 8 guests.
Dogs are welcomed at a rate of £25 per dog per stay, please advise our reservations team when making your booking that you shall be bringing a dog with you.
