Nestled in the heart of the Peak District National Park, this property is brimming with character and offers guests a great base from which it explore the many attractions of this spectacular area.

Situated close to the impressive rock escarpments of Curbar Edge which line the sides of the valley, the property is a great choice for those wanting to explore the Peak District. The pretty market town of Bakewell is just a short drive from the property and offers a wonderful array of shops, cafés and restaurants to explore. The majestic country house of Chatsworth is also nearby and a wonderful place for spending an afternoon.

One of two cottages in this location, entry to the property is via the fitted kitchen which contains all the essentials that guests require. The open-plan lounge-dining area is full of character from the exposed wood beams and a beautiful exposed stone wall which creates a central feature of the room. The space is a good size, yet cosy enough for an intimate night in watching TV after a day spent exploring the Peaks.

Stairs lead up to the charming bedroom which contains a double bed and has an en-suite with walk-in shower, hand basin and toilet.

Outside, the barn has a delightful patio seating area that’s perfect for al fresco dining. Of course if guests are seeking something a little cosier, the Bridge Inn pub at Curbar is a great spot for a delicious pub meal.

Lovely well decorated, cosy cottage with good equipment and facilities. Just let down by the bed which has a bar at the foot making it uncomfortable for tall people. If they replaced it with a better bed like the one shown in promo pictures, the cottage would be perfect. Great location for walking and well presented, clean and cosy.
