Take time to unwind with loved ones at this stunning cottage in the heart of a popular Peak District village. The charm oozes through every inch of the cottage and will provide a memorable escape.
Sitting in the heart of the pretty village of Hartington, this picture-postcard stone cottage is the perfect accommodation option for a romantic break for two or an adventure-filled getaway with family or friends. Located next to the owner’s home - yet offering plenty of privacy - you’ll find some of the best hikes in Derbyshire right on your doorstep. Spend your days climbing or caving and your evenings enjoying al fresco dinners in the cottage’s exceptionally pretty garden.
Sleeping four people across two bedrooms and welcoming five dogs, this cottage is overflowing with rural charm. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast around the farmhouse table in the cottage’s country-style kitchen. After a day scaling Mam Tor or cycling at Jacob’s Ladder, climb up the steps to your rural retreat, head out to the garden, light up the charcoal BBQ and dine alfresco. If you have the dogs with you, they can run free in the enclosed garden. After dinner, relax in front of your favourite TV shows by the wood burner in the living room. With its exposed beams, feature fireplace and garden views, spending time in this room is an absolute pleasure. And when the day is over, head upstairs and you’ll find two wonderfully quaint bedrooms.
Take an atmospheric stroll at Arbor Low (5 miles), the region’s most important prehistoric site. There you’ll find a Neolithic henge monument that dates back to between 2,500 BC to 1,500 BC. Or head to Carsington Water (12 miles) and explore the lake from a stand-up paddleboard or Canadian canoe. If you’re thirsty after that, quench your thirst in the taproom at the Thornbridge Brewery (11 miles). While you’re there, grab something for the BBQ, because the brewery sells a range of artisanal meat from the Thornbridge Hall Estate.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
