Stay in one of our most romantic and rustic retreats in the Peak District for a memorable adventure, and ideal for a couple looking for an active holiday surrounded by nature. The property is the perfect base for exploring the best that Derbyshire and Staffordshire offer; imagine the dramatic Staffordshire moorlands that surround you, yet you are just 3 miles from the rugged Peak District. Peak Wildlife Park is just 2 miles away or you can go for a day’s paddleboarding or explore the local canals on foot.
This welcoming property set over one level in a peaceful setting in what was old farmland is now beautifully laid out as gardens. Enter the main living area, with a kitchen with everything you need to rustle up romantic meals. Enjoy the countryside views and settle down and unwind on the large king-size bed, which can double as a day bed. A Smart TV and a lovely wood burner ensure you enjoy snug evenings. The extended table offers plenty of dining space, and a shower room completes the features. Step outside and find your favourite spot, as there are lounge chairs at the front, a wooden loveseat, an outside bath, a BBQ, and a fire pit for dining outdoors under the stars. Explore the grounds, which you will share with a few livestock. Your dog is welcome but must be kept on a lead outside.
Hikers will love taking on the 13-mile-long Tissington Trail, which you can access 12 miles away at Ashbourne. Walkers and naturalists should visit National Trust Hawksmoor to experience this ancient woodland full of birds and wildflowers. Take a picnic and your walking boots and discover the wood pasture, pools, and woodland trails at RSPB Consall Wood (7 miles) or be adventurous underground and take a guided tour of Poole’s Cavern (17 miles) and then go on a walk from Buxton into the stunning Peak District.
