Property code: 40971

Picture a break characterised by outdoor pursuits and gentle walks through the countryside, choosing this attractive stone cottage as your base. Studded on the outskirts of Barlow, not only are you ideally located for fishing, walking and cycling, but you are also within reach of famous Peak District towns such as Bakewell, 11.5 miles away. Pick up a few treats and return to your homely accommodation for two to feast in style, throwing down a picnic blanket and relaxing by the babbling brook in the 2 acres of shared grounds.

Self-contained and finished with elegant decor, this comfortable nook is ideal for those relaxed evenings where all you need is a glass of wine and a good film. There’s a spacious kitchen for preparing light meals and simple suppers that can be enjoyed at the table or on your lap curled up on the sofa. Upstairs, the attractive bedroom peers over the garden and features a king-size bed, storage and an en-suite shower room. The shared garden is the epitome of an English country garden with a manicured lawn, shrubbery and flowerbeds, inviting you to have a cream tea in one of the many delightful nooks.

Your rural location is in a prime position for discovering the eastern fringes of the Peak District National Park. Walk, cycle or take on a new challenge - kayaking, caving or riding a zip-wire. Literacy enthusiast or knowledgeable about history? Chatsworth House, 8 miles away, has a fascinating heritage and was used as the location for filming Pride and Prejudice. If you time your visit right, Barlow comes alive in August with its Carnival Parade, and Hardwick Hall (13.5 miles) is a top destination for foodies when the Great British Food Festival Comes to town.

A fabulous holiday cottage in beautiful surroundings. The cottage felt like home straight away. Loved the garden, different points of interest as you walk around. The fishing lakes behind the cottage, nice for an evening stroll. The nearby Peacock inn and Tickled trout serves delicious food and drinks.
