Perfect for a families and friends looking for a Peak District cottage with comfort and style around every corner. The garden is fully enclosed with pretty cottage garden planting and outdoor seating with summerhouse.

For families and friendship groups who love the outdoors, the quiet village of Upper Mayfield is perfect for experiencing a true taste of countryside life. Whether you are navigating scenic trails or investigating the cobbled marketplace of Ashbourne 2.5 miles away, your position on the Derbyshire/Staffordshire border means you’ll never be far from adventure. Afterwards, return to your comfortable accommodation for a fireside snooze and the promise of a hearty meal and a glass of wine or two.

Inside is a brilliant blend of 17th-century charm and contemporary pizazz, where you’ll find original beams, exposed stone and a brick fireplace as well as a vibrant dining area complete with colourful seats and a glass table. Warm your cockles by the AGA and cook up a storm then rest your weary limbs by the wood burner in the lounge. There are three bedrooms in total to sleep six guests, and the generous shower room is a sheer treat after a long day exploring the countryside. The garden isn’t just for balmy summer afternoons; you’ll also be able to soak up the atmosphere from the comfort of the summerhouse in chilly weather.

Pack a picnic and lace up your boots, treading the picturesque banks of the River Dove 7.5 miles away. Thorpe Cloud rises in the distance, and there is a scenic track leading through the nature reserve that incorporates some seriously impressive views of this gentle giant. Beginning at Ilam Park, the trail is suitable for walkers of all abilities, and the areas of shallow water near the stepping stones are a popular place for a quick paddle. Carsington Water is 9 miles away with walking, cycling and water sports opportunities, and young adrenaline enthusiasts will love Alton Towers 9 miles away.

The cottage is beautiful, tastefully decorated and kitted out to a very high standard. The welcome pack was excellent with lots of lovely local produce - really appreciated. The owner has done everything possible to mitigate for some of the parking issues even arranging extra parking with a nearby pub.

Lovely cottage, very clean and fully equipped. Walks from the doorstep. Neighbours made us feel really welcome. Parking would be tight for more than a couple of small cars, but didn't affect us. Would definitely come back.

It's a lovely cottage. Brilliantly located , there are lots of dog friendly walks both around the village and only a short drive to the peak district. Really well laid out and comfortable, felt very homly as soon as we got there. This was the first holiday we had taken our dog, and he was so settled and happy to be there the whole time!

An attractive cottage equipped to a very high standard. There are a number of footpaths close by which means that there is no need to take the car to be able to enjoy a pleasant walk.
