Welcome to
The Music Mill

Once home to the first gramophone needle factory in the UK, The Music Mill is now a rustic self catered luxury holiday home situated within the beautiful Peak District.

The Music Mill keeps its Victorian, industrial appearance on the outside but now has contemporary home comforts and lovingly styled design throughout the interior. This is a sociable house; cook a feast for friends, catch up in front of the fire or play board games in the lounge area.

Relax awhile in the originally styled family bathroom, complete with spa shower and luxurious roll top bath. Our tranquil space is furnished with upcycled pieces showcasing work from our Sheffield based interiors shop, Martha Heritage.

We are perfectly positioned for guests to explore the outdoor adventures that the Peak District National Park offers. Alternatively you may wish to take things a little slower and wander up the lane to Hathersage to browse the local shops and cafes.

Please call 07795 095 088, email hello@musicmill.co.uk, view our listing on AirBnb or visit our Facebook page to find out more.
