This was our 2nd visit to Harthill Hall after staying in Henry's Haunt in 2006. This time 14 of us stayed in The Barn with family travelling from all over the country. And every single one of us had a great time. To manage peoples expectations here's some pros & cons:
Pros - Great games room with Wii provided - kids kept occupied all the time, fully equipped kitchen with enough plates, glasses, cooking pots etc for us all, made a full sunday roast. Great communal living space with comfy chairs. Hot tub provided. Staff helpful on arrival and when we struggled with oven (our lack of knowledge!!) Fantastic views and walks direct from Hall, location perfect for trips out to Chatsworth House, Bakewell, Heights of Abraham and Gullivers World.
Cons - Some of the ensuites are a bit small, but adequate. Table a bit of a squeeze for all of us - but managable and we all eat round it sat and sun eve. Pool was a bit cold (so I was told!) even kids found it a bit cold but you could soon warm up in the hot tub.
Overall I would encourage people not to be put off by other reviews, we really did have a good time and our main objective to have all the family together having fun was definatelt met.
