Victorian grandeur

Audley St Elphin's Park is a luxury retirement village set in 14 acres in the Derbyshire Dales, close to Matlock and Bakewell. The restored Victorian school at the centre of the village houses the Audley Club.

The centrepiece building, St Elphin’s House, started life as a private residence, becoming an exclusive spa in the 19th century, and latterly, a well-known girls' boarding school, St Elphin’s Girls School. This Victorian schoolhouse has been expertly restored and now boasts a swimming pool, fitness centre, hair salon, treatment rooms, library, bistro and The Orangery Restaurant. 

Surrounding the Victorian grandeur of St Elphin’s House are our attractively designed one- and two-bedroom retirement properties, including apartments and cottages. The village has been built to reflect the style of a traditional Derbyshire hamlet.
