Please Google Monsal Dale to see some of the breath taking and beautiful scenery that can be seen from the windows of this property. This spacious 10/11 bedroom Victorian House has recently been refurbished to an incredibly high standard with a mix of traditional features and contemporary style. Most bedrooms are large and en-suite and can be set up as doubles or twins depending on your needs. The master suite on the top floor (with the most incredible views) can sleep up to 6 people and two other rooms have bunk beds with the ability to sleep 4. The dining room is big enough for everyone to dine together and everything that you need to cater for large groups is provided for you in the brand new, stunningly designed farmhouse kitchen. The 3 bedroomed cottage next door has 3 bedroom which can be doubles or twins and has a large bathroom with roll top and sleeps a further 6 people. Outside there is a beautiful, recently landscaped garden, looking straight on to the Longstone Edge and down into the picturesque village of Little Longstone. Cliff House also has an enviable location when it comes to being in walking distance from not just one but a selection of really good, heart-warmingly traditional pubs. This includes the infamous Pack Horse in Little Longstone, The White Lion in Great Longstone, and the Monsal Head Hotel with the fabulous traditional Stable Bar and fantastic outside seating area looking north westerly down into Monsal Dale.
