About Thornleigh House

When Rachel and Mark bought Thornleigh House in 2008, they knew they needed to extensively renovate and adapt the property for their guests but also keep the amazing period features within Thornleigh intact. They recognised the potential of such a large, imposing four storey house, within a short stroll to an array of restaurants, shops, wine bars and a large park as well as being on the doorstep of the delights of the Peak District.

The couple spent a year creating a large luxurious holiday let specifically for guests with a hot tub, sauna and games room, catering for hen parties, corporate breaks and family gatherings. Rachel and Mark live in Matlock themselves with their children, accumulating extensive local knowledge and recommendations to pass onto the guests, whilst running Thornleigh and Agricola houses as a small family business.

When Rachel and Mark first bought Thornleigh House in 2008, they recognised its potential as a holiday let and took 12 months of hard work to adapt and create a luxurious self-catering holiday house. Living in Matlock themselves with their children, allowed them to develop networks to recommend to their guests. The couple have never wanted Thornleigh to be just another holiday let, without character and always aim to deliver a unique, personalised holiday experience to their guests.

 

Converting Thornleigh House

The couple spent a year converting Thornleigh utilising Mark’s own practical abilities as well as local tradesman who enjoyed the challenges of preserving the period features, alongside creating a luxurious house. Mark is from an engineering background and built the huge bespoke dining table himself onsite, the central point of the large kitchen dining room. The interior design of the house is frequently praised by their guests and as each individual room has its own unique style to create a home from home. This has involved a lot of time and effort and to create the successful holiday let that Thornleigh has become.

Small Business Sunday for Agricola House

Rachel and Mark’s achievements for their other property, Agricola House were recognised recently by retail tycoon Theo Paphitis, (from Dragon’s Den) during his TwitterSmall Business Sunday’ #SBS. Theo created #SBS to give a boost to deserving independent businesses, and Mark and Rachel were thrilled when Agricola House scooped the prestigious accolade, a fantastic “seal of approval” by someone with as much business acumen as Theo Paphitis. They met Theo at an exclusive #SBS winners’ event in Birmingham in February 2018.
