Property code: PK741

Located in a secluded countryside position with stunning views and enjoyable walks making this property perfect for those looking to get away from it all or explore the many attractions the Peak District has to offer.

The beautiful cottage benefits from spectacular views, thanks to its elevated position on the slopes of Eccles Pike. The property sleeps four guests in two bedrooms, making it ideal for a small family getaway or a couples’ retreat. The area is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, with a multitude of walking routes nearby to suit everyone. Pull on your hiking boots and climb to the summit of Eccles Pike (approx. 2 miles) or enjoy a gentle waterside stroll at Combs Reservoir (1.5 miles). Alternatively, spend a relaxing afternoon pottering around the grounds of the National Trust’s Lyme (6 miles).

The 18th-century property has been carefully restored to retain many of the characterful original features, such as the wonderful oak beams and exposed stonework. The barn has been converted using innovative environmental design, including British sheep’s wool insulation and a carbon-neutral wood pellet stove to heat the property’s water. The spacious lounge/diner has a beautiful slate floor and underfloor heating, to create a cosy space to relax in after a day of exploring. Outside is a gorgeous terrace with magnificent views, as well as a kitchen garden where you can pick your own organic produce.

If you’re looking to explore, the route to the top of Eccles Pike is incredibly pretty and takes you along a series of footpaths through the countryside. Once you reach the 370-metre summit, you’ll be rewarded with fabulous views over Combs Reservoir and Shining Tor. Combs Reservoir is another great spot for peaceful walking, as well as sailing. The shoreline footpath is 2 miles long and takes you through the village of Combs, where you can stop off for a delicious pub lunch. The glorious house at Lyme also makes a lovely day out. There are some truly magical walks through the 1,400-acre estate, passing through formal gardens, moorland, and a deer park.

The owners seemed to have thought of everything to make our visit comfortable. From blankets to keep us warm if we went outside to lots of games and books.

The cottage is warm and welcoming and in a stunning location. All mod cons provided using environmentally aware products. Everything is eco friendly from the washing up liquid to the wonderful Faith in Nature shampoo and shower gel provided. Amazing walks straight from the door, and plenty of places to visit.
