Property code: 40971

Approached via a quiet country lane, this delightful stone-built property which is adjacent to the owner’s home sits by a meandering brook, a haven for wildlife and tranquillity.

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. There’s a spacious kitchen for preparing light meals and simple suppers that can be enjoyed at the table or on your lap curled up on the sofa. Upstairs, the attractive bedroom peers over the garden and features a king-size bed, storage and an en-suite shower room. The shared garden is the epitome of an English country garden with a manicured lawn, shrubbery and flowerbeds, inviting you to have a cream tea in one of the many delightful nooks.

Your rural location is in a prime position for discovering the eastern fringes of the Peak District National Park. Walk, cycle or take on a new challenge - kayaking, caving or riding a zip-wire. Literacy enthusiast or knowledgeable about history? Chatsworth House, 8 miles away, has a fascinating heritage and was used as the location for filming Pride and Prejudice. If you time your visit right, Barlow comes alive in August with its Carnival Parade, and Hardwick Hall (13.5 miles) is a top destination for foodies when the Great British Food Festival Comes to town.

The cottage is beautiful, fully furnished and located in a beautiful area. The garden is lovely. Please note that the bed is 1.90 meters and was therefore too short for us. We are 1.92 meters and 1.88 meters.

The cottage is very comfortable to stay in. Its lovely to sit inthe garden or down by the stream. The owners were very welcoming. There are no shops in the village, the nearest supermarket is in Dronfield. Bakewell was good for local produce. Although not in the National park it was an easy drive to get to places to walk and visit.

Beautiful cottage in an idyllic setting. The cottage has everything you need and is located near to lots of good walks - or if you want to take the car out to visit places then there is plenty to do nearby. After a day out walking or exploring the garden is a beautiful place to sit with a cuppa and watch the birds and wildlife. The owners are very Read morefriendly and interested in what you are doing, but never in the way. A really lovely break away. Hide
