Bask in the inviting country charm of this stonework cottage, set in the secluded village of Hartington within the beautifully rugged Peak District. This romantic hideaway is ideal for a couple of keen explorers and their four-pawed companions. Embark on a leisurely afternoon saunter on the ‘Dales of the River Dale Walk’ from Hartington and soak in sweeping country vistas, limestone dales, and burbling river banks. Return to your homely abode and settle in with a sundowner and nibbles in the courtyard.
This characterful property features rustic wooden beams and earthy neutral tones throughout. Pad along the stone pathway and step through the cottage-style door, then slide off muddy hiking boots. Put your weary feet up on the comfortable seats in the lounge and unwind in the warm glow of the electric wood burner as you enjoy a post-adventure tipple. Ascend the staircase to the open-plan kitchen/diner and whip up a celebratory supper. Perch at the kitchen island and crack open a bottle of something special then slide out the leather chairs and enjoy an intimate meal for two beneath the grand vaulted ceiling. As evening draws in, rest up in the airy double bedroom. Enjoy a sleek en-suite with a spacious tub for a relaxing evening soak. Tuck into an al fresco breakfast or get sizzling on the BBQ in the shared gravel courtyard. Feeling competitive? Hit the shared games room for a high-stakes game of table football or air hockey.
Take time to enjoy the delights of Hartington high street, 250 metres, where you can indulge in leisurely coffee house chats, browse for antique gems, or sample a selection of locally produced cheddar and stilton at the nearby cheese shop. Pack and picnic and peddle along the winding country lanes of the Tissington Trail, within 3 miles. Watersports enthusiasts can gear up for a peaceful paddle on the glistening shores of Carsington Water (15 miles) surrounded by rolling emerald woodland.
