Shrouded by ancient trees and surrounded by wildflower meadows, this character cottage sleeps four within the historic Stanage-North Lees estate. Bring along your canine companion and you’ll be in for a treat when it comes to walks, whether you are investigating the sheer number of National Trust locations within 15 miles, or curling up by one of two roaring wood burners on cosy evenings. Throw in some tempting local fare and hearty pub lunches and you’ll have yourself the perfect holiday.
Traditional from the outset with its ancient stone walls and painted beams, the property has been styled in a surprisingly contemporary fashion for a truly relaxing vibe. Rustle up your favourite meals and feast together in the stylish kitchen/diner, retreating to the lounge with a drink and a good book afterwards. Both the kitchen/diner and the lounge have wood burners for the ultimate treat, perfect for chilly nights. Sink your shoulders in the free-standing bath in the bathroom and retire to one of two bedrooms when you are ready to recharge your batteries. Outside, steps lead up to the raised patio which boasts stunning views of your surroundings.
From your doorstep, the 1-mile trail to Stanage Drop promises mesmerising views and a taste of the adventures in store. Discover over 1,000 acres of parkland and soak up the history of Chatsworth Estate, 11 miles away, or take in the dramatic Eastern Moors 4 miles away. If you fancy an exciting day exploring the dams and reservoirs, venture the 10 miles to the Upper Derwent Valley - this is a brilliant place to try paddleboarding thanks to the panoramic vistas.
