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.

The picturesque village of Barlow is a wonderful place to call home for a while when visiting the Peak District National Park. The village offers numerous footpaths to enjoy, exploring the glorious surrounding hills and multiple eateries where you can sample local, seasonal delights. Chatsworth House, Hardwick and Haddon Hall are within a twenty-minute drive and each offer historical charm and wonderful gardens to explore throughout the year. Pop into the nearby town of Bakewell, the home of the traditional Bakewell pudding and wander around the streets lined with independent shops or stop for lunch by the river which runs through.

Take a few steps down to the front door and enter into the cottage which provides a bright and airy, open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner for you to relax in. The stylish shaker kitchen is a delightful space to prepare a meal, complemented with sparkling quartz worktops, electric cooker and hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave. Enjoy lazy breakfasts at the nearby dining table and on an evening retire to the comfy sofas in the lounge. Put your feet up in front of the Smart TV, or curl up with a good book overlooking the garden through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Head upstairs to the double bedroom, again complemented with floor-to-ceiling windows and a Smart TV. The en-suite shower room is beautifully decorated and offers an enclosed shower and WC.

The cottage is situated in a 2-acre landscaped garden which is shared with the owner. There are many seating areas tucked away in different spots to ensure privacy. Whether it's sat on the patio outside the cottage, on the bench by the babbling brook, or under the pergola laden with climbing roses and clematis, you will find a special place to rest. There is off-road parking for two cars.

The cottage was ideal, it was fully kitted out with everything we needed and in a beautiful location. Mike and Janice could not have been more helpful, and have done a brilliant job of the cottage, we will certainly stay again if we return to the Peak District.

A beautiful cottage, which is very tastefully furnished and well equipped. Despite some bad weather we were able to enjoy the lovely garden, local walks and scenic area. We walked to both of the local pubs and enjoyed excellent meals and friendly service in both. Would thoroughly recommend.

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
