Nestled between the rugged Peaks to the North and the gentle rolling hills of the Derbyshire Dales to the South, The Gables is a luxurious Peak District holiday home situated in the charming village of Peak Forest.  We offer large group accommodation for up to 17 people, perfect for family gatherings or group getaways.   


Accommodation at The Gables

Our beautiful rooms are furnished to the highest standard and retain a period charm, whilst having a real ‘home-from-home’ feel.  

A large living room and two sitting rooms with generously proportioned sofas mean that there’s plenty of space for your group to spread out and relax, and there is an open fire for cosy nights together after a day exploring the fabulous Peak District.  Sky Sports, Sky Movies, Freeview and wifi will keep everyone entertained.   We also have a games room for kids of every age! 

The Gables has six beautifully-appointed bedrooms, as well as four bathrooms and a jacuzzi bath and sauna.  Our luxurious master bedroom sleeps two with a king size four-poster bed and en-suite walk-in wet room.  It also has French windows which open on to a private balcony overlooking the vast gardens and those beautiful views of the Derbyshire countryside.  Underfloor heating throughout will keep you comfortable and warm, no matter what the Peak District weather throws at you.

The large, oak-beamed country kitchen at The Gables is wonderfully well-equipped for creating culinary masterpieces for your group or for sharing large family meals.  It has a six-hob triple oven range, a microwave, two fridges, a freezer, a dishwasher, a huge kitchen table and a welcoming wood-burning stove.  There is also a separate utility room.  And when you’ve cooked up a feast, our spacious dining room has an almost unfeasibly large oak dining table that can seat up to 17 people.

At The Gables we believe that the whole family should enjoy the glorious Peak District.  We welcome children and our huge gardens offer enough running space to tire out even the most energetic members of your party.  As well as a large play frame and mini football nets, we also have a basketball and tennis court in the adjoining playing field. 

We welcome your four-legged friends too – it’s their holiday as well! 

Our large patio areas are perfect for soaking up the fresh country air and sunshine, together with outdoor seating and a barbecue.  


Our location

The Peak District is the most visited national park in the UK, and deservedly so.  It offers stunning scenery and a wealth of places to visit and explore throughout the year, no matter your age or energy levels. 

The Gables is perfectly located for discovering the very best of the Peak District National Park, and there is no shortage of beautiful walks right from the front door.  

Within easy reach is the pretty village of Castleton, with its fabulous show caves and breathtaking views from Mam Tor.  Also close by is the historic village of Eyam, with its tragic but inspiring story as a Plague Village in the 17th Century.  Only slightly further afield is the ancient market town of Bakewell, famed for its wonderful pudding!  And within easy driving distance is the historic spa town of Buxton, famed for its culture, restaurants and shopping.  

Also close by are the grand country estates of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall – offering wonderful days out for the whole family.
