Picture a break characterised by outdoor pursuits and gentle walks through the countryside, choosing this attractive stone cottage as your base. Studded on the outskirts of Barlow, not only are you ideally located for fishing, walking and cycling, but you are also within reach of famous Peak District towns such as Bakewell, 11.5 miles away. Pick up a few treats and return to your homely accommodation for two to feast in style, throwing down a picnic blanket and relaxing by the babbling brook in the 2 acres of shared grounds.
Self-contained and finished with elegant decor, this comfortable nook is ideal for those relaxed evenings where all you need is a glass of wine and a good film.
