We live here and Stephen works from home so there is nearly always someone here to help with queries or ideas for places to go and things to do.
We have two dogs, a cat, and several chickens, all very friendly, but if you do have allergies it's worth knowing.
Broadband speed is "rural".
Please note - usually there is no mobile phone signal in the property (ideal for some guests?). Some networks may get a weak signal outside at times - we have a landline to use if needed.
Wendy - I was born locally and have lived at Cressbrook Mill from the age of 5, when it was just a cluster of derelict buildings. My father converted the Mill into apartments around the turn of the millennium and it is now a beautiful, mature development. I have been running a busy holiday apartment at the Mill for over 8 years and really enjoy meeting an interesting mix of people. Many return every year and some book several times each year, so I can't be too scary! I work in a lovely cafe (Village Green) in the 'plague village' of Eyam - well worth a visit. We have 2 dogs and love walking all over the Peaks, or further away if we get chance.
Stephen - I moved to the Peaks after I met Wendy and never left! I love exploring the bridleways and singletrack all over the white and dark peaks on my mountain bike, but nothing too serious. I also enjoy getting out with the dogs on the nearby walks or planning new routes. My camera usually goes with me as I'm an enthusiastic amateur, always looking to see what I can catch. It also goes with me to race circuits and hillclimbs when I can - either to spectate or to compete in my Lotus Elise.
We travelled to visit family in New Zealand when the kids were very young and have been to the usual summer holiday destinations of Greek Islands, Algarve, verious places in France (where we also have family) plus the UK. In 2015 we ventured to the USA on a self-made road trip, taking in several National Parks and the West Coast. It was fantastic and we hope to go back to see more.
