Perch on the patio and fill your lungs with crisp country air at this restorative country retreat. Set in the postcard-perfect village of Hartington within the Peak District, this traditional hideaway is ideal for long-overdue reunions with friends or family getaways – plus it has space for up to three four-legged companions. Pose for the obligatory group wetsuit snap then slide in for a scenic paddle on the glistening shores of Carsington Water, then stretch out in the heat of the crackling open fire with a glass of bubbles and toast to your special occasion.

This 500-year-old cottage retains much of its original charm with an inglenook fireplace, wooden beamed ceilings, and stone mullion windows. Stroll down the cobblestone pathway and beneath the stone entranceway then step inside and kick off your shoes by the door. Flop down on the comfortable sofas in the lounge and set the mood with a relaxing playlist on the Smart TV. Pad through to the kitchen/diner and assist the chef of your group in serving up a celebratory spread. Got a few drink recipes up your sleeve? Zest, shake, and serve up a selection of pre-dinner tipples at the breakfast bar. Gather around the dining table beneath the glittering chandelier for a memorable meal with your nearest and dearest. Retire upstairs to the three bright bedrooms on the first floor, each with an en-suite and styled in coordinating soft furnishings. Bask in the morning sun from the front garden or explore the shared courtyard with seating for up to six guests. Competitive guests can while away the hours in the shared games room with air hockey, table tennis, and a Smart TV.

Lace up the hiking boots and trek through tranquil country lanes and alongside the glistening banks of the River Dove – an easy loop accessible from the heart of Hartington (250 metres). Hartington high street offers an eclectic selection of local coffee shops, intriguing antique stores, and friendly watering holes for a post-adventure round with the gang. Serious cyclists and leisurely peddlers alike will enjoy biking along the traffic-free Tissington Trail (3 miles).

Lovely dog friendly cottage in a superb location. Fantastic food in the Devonshire Arms and a very tasty breakfast in the farm shop and cafe. Great cottage for 3 couples especially having 3 en-suites, a real plus for us. Our only negative would be the cottage is a little tired and could do with an upgrade but that didnt spoil our time there

Knowl Cottage has much to offer. It is spacious & in a great position but needs updating, particularly the bathrooms. There were a couple of issues during our stay, the WiFi did not work & there was a leak from one of the showers into the kitchen. There was a prompt response after the problems were reported & though the shower could not be repairedRead more during our stay the WiFi was sorted out the following day. Hartington is a lively but relaxing place with a great pub & tea rooms just next door. Hide
