This semi-detached cottage, in the quiet village of Taddington, is perfect for couples and small families who would like to immerse themselves in the beauty of the Peak District National Park.

If you’re looking for a romantic bolthole that’s surrounded by spectacular scenery, or a rural retreat where you and your nearest and dearest can relax after a day of paddleboarding, you can’t go wrong with this semi-detached cottage in the village of Taddington. Conveniently located midway between Buxton and Bakewell, it’s easy to discover every corner of the Peak District National Park from this traditional stone cottage. Spend your days hiking up to Monsal Head or wild swimming at Three Shires Head, and your evenings enjoying quality time with your loved ones in front of the roaring wood burner.

Sleeping three people across two bedrooms and welcoming one dog, this lovely cottage retains all of its original charm. Kick off your day with a coffee in the garden, where you’ll find a bench up some steps on the higher level of the split-level courtyard. After an invigorating day in the national park, return to the cottage, step into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, and cook up a feast. Enjoy your meal at the dining table, or head outside to the picnic bench on the sunken level of the garden and dine alfresco. After dinner, crack open a bottle of something cool and crisp in the courtyard, or head inside to put your feet up in front of the wood burner. When the day is done, make your way up the open metal staircase to the first floor and you’ll find two wonderful bedrooms.

Take a rewarding 6.5-mile circular hike from Taddington to Monsal Head, one of the most famous and photographed viewpoints in Derbyshire. At the Monsal Head viewpoint, you’ll find benches where you can sit and watch the sunset. Alternatively, take a picturesque dip at Three Shires Head (13 miles), a collection of pools and waterfalls located where Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire meet.

The cottage is perfectly situated for accessing the whole of the Peak. The village is quiet and so away from the more touristy places but easy to get to them. There are amazing walks locally as well as further afield and having a large energetic dog it was great.

We had the most wonderful stay at Black Spout Cottage. It is so lovely and comfortable and everything that we had hoped. Unfortunately, the weather was so mild, so we didn't get the opportunity to light the lovely log burner, but maybe next time? It is situated in the perfect location for visiting lots of places. The local pub in the village was unRead moreder renovation, but it was still a great place to visit and have a drink and we ate there three times in the week, due to the food being so good. Hide

What an amazing cottage! Beautifully situated in a small village which is nearby to all the main attractions in the peaks. If you just want to chill out and do nothing its perfect, if you want to go explore, again, its perfect! Very well equipped cottage with lots of space to move around.

The cottage was a great place to stay, well equipped and very comfortable. It's in a quiet end of the village and the neighbours were friendly and very helpful. Lovely walks, and not far to travel to Bakewell etc. Su was very helpful in making our stay feel more like home. I highly recommend it.

A lovely, relaxed holiday, in a beautiful, quiet location. The cottage was dog friendly and very well equipped for humans too! If you dont own a dog do not be put off though as its very clean and you would never know that a dog may have been there. In a great location with lots of local walks but also within easy access to a good road network.
