Three bedroom barn conversion in New Mills, near Stockport, Derbyshire

A three bedroom semi-detached former shippon and hayloft which has recently been sympathetically converted to a high standard. It is situated in a tranquil semi rural location in the High Peak area with good road and rail links nearby

Croftbank Cottage is a sensitive and high quality conversion of a former shippon and hayloft now extending over three floors. The developers are offering the opportunity to personalise both the kitchen and family bathroom layout and finish.

Situated in a traditional and ancient farmyard cluster of buildings now comprising of four dwellings (the farmhouse itself dates back to at least the mid 16th century), the conversion has both internally and externally managed to retain the character of a building believed to be in excess of 250 years old, whilst blending seamlessly with features demanded by modern lifestyle and taste. Cleverly the result is a home that feels both old and modern at the same time, without compromise to either.

All rooms overlook farmland, with far reaching views of hills and valley as well as the mixed woodland to the immediate south west of the property.

This semi detached property is situated within 500m of the Peak District National Park boundary, would provide low maintenance dwellings ideally suited to a second home.


Parking for two vehicles, enclosed stone terrace and additional lawned area both overlooking and benefitting from hearing the small stream.

Safety lighting. Outside tap.

The option is available to purchase a small parcel of agricultural land to extend up to or beyond the nearby stream by separate negotiation.


Croftbank Cottage briefly comprises of: -

Entrance hall with separate utility and WC leads to dining kitchen and generous living room with feature stone fireplace and multi- fuel stove. The first floor hosts the master bedroom with en suite and mezzanine level and leads on to the family bathroom and a single bedroom / home office and the staircase to second floor bedroom three, which features exposed oak beams and stonework with far reaching views to two elevations.

Deceptively spacious, the clever use of space provides almost 110 m2 of living area. The slight changes in levels between elements of both the ground and first floors create an interesting and tantalising flow as you move through the house.

The property benefits from mains water, an LPG bulk tank (shared but independently metered with adjoining Tenterfield Cottage) and a newly installed sewage treatment plant that serves three properties on a shared maintenance agreement.


The property offers immediate access to the surrounding countryside- a public footpath runs through the farmyard.

New Mills town centre is just 1 ½ miles away and offers a mixture of pubs, cafés and a welcome resurgence of traditional shops along with a couple of small supermarkets which cater for everyday needs. The nearby spa town of Buxton, the gateway to the White Peak and Derbyshire Dales offers a range of High Street shops as well as local shops and cafés and larger national outlets are within a 15 minute drive.

New Mills has two railway stations giving access to both Manchester and Sheffield city centres within 35 minutes.

A new relief road approximately four miles away and due for completion in early 2018 will give speedy access to both Manchester Airport and the north west motorway network. The M1 motorway at either Chesterfield or Barnsley is within one hours drive through the spectacular scenery of either the Dark Peak (Barnsley) heading north or the White Peak (Chesterfield) if heading south.

The town sits above the Torrs, a deep gorge formed by melting ice at the end of the ice age 20,000 years ago, where the rivers Sett and Goyt meet. Popular with both climbers and walkers it leads on to the award winning Millennium Walkway- a cliff hugging steel footpath high above the Goyt. This provides unhindered continuation of the Goyt Way, part of the Midshires Way.
