Situated next to the owners' home, this gorgeous family-friendly cottage is the perfect place to call home when visiting the Peak District National Park.
Imagine a holiday characterised by brisk walks on cold mornings, discovering the Peak District in all its glory throughout the woodland-studded valleys. This fabulous cottage sleeps six and is a delight to return to with its roaring wood burner, especially if you are laden with tempting local produce from one of the many villages nearby such as Bakewell, 19.5 miles away.
Ascend the steep stone steps and enter to find lavish interiors finished with thoughtful accessories, exposed brickwork and underfloor heating. Whether you are snuggling up with a good book in the snug or lighting the lounge wood burner for an evening of films and snacks, you are sure to find a relaxing spot to suit you. The kitchen/diner is the heart of the home for all those delicious home-cooked meals you’ll soon be devouring under the glass roof. At bedtime, the sweet bunk bedroom is perfectly tailored to children with its colourful decor and storybooks, and the two remaining bedrooms are a sanctuary with crisply dressed king-size beds. One even boasts a handy en-suite shower room and WC, but the family bathroom is a treat with its exquisite roll-top bath and separate shower. Pour a glass of wine and head outside, choosing from the pretty front courtyard with its dramatic views, or a second patio area with seating to the rear.
Foodies, adventure seekers and history buffs are all well catered for in peaceful Belper and there is a whole host of potential activities right on your doorstep. Explore the formal river gardens, historic mills and visitor centre, then head further afield to Chatsworth House (19.5 miles) or visit Carsington Water for water sports and walks, 6.5 miles away. For the real thrill-seekers and the youngest members of your party, Alton Towers is just 21.5 miles away too.
