This couple’s retreat is a fantastic cottage to call home when you visit the Peak District. There is plenty to explore right on the doorstep.

Situated in the spectacular Hope Valley and surrounded by wooded hillsides and magnificent gritstone edges, the pretty village of Hathersage is an absolute gem. Beautiful old stone buildings line the streets and it is home to a collection of vibrant shops, cafés, pubs, and restaurants. It’s a great base for exploring Stanage Edge, a gritstone escarpment just north of the village that stretches for almost 4 miles and is famous as a location for climbing. The many moorland and fell trails that start from the edge of the village also offer wonderful routes for running, cycling, and hiking. The village has a rich and interesting history; in the village churchyard visitors can see the reputed grave of Little John, one of Robin Hood’s Merry Men.

Mill Retreat is a Grade II listed building that was built c.1750 as a worker’s cottage for the mill across the road. Enter the open plan lounge/kitchen/diner with an entrance area offering space to store coats and boots. There are many original antique postcards and maps on the wall of the property, adding to the charm. The kitchen offers an electric oven and gas hob, washer/dryer, fridge, dishwasher, breakfast bar, and a Belfast sink with views over the surrounding gardens. Come together around the dining table and enjoy a meal with good company. Retire to the lounge area after a wonderful day exploring the area, relax on the comfy sofas, light the wood-burner and pop something on the Smart TV. Upstairs, the bedroom offers a double bed with views out of the traditional windows onto nearby pastures. The bathroom offers a shower over the bath and WC; don’t forget your bubble bath to enjoy a long soak to end the day.

There is a seating area directly outside the back door of the cottage. Take a few steps over the communal pathway and you enter a large private garden with spectacular views across the hills behind. The garden has outdoor seating, a chimenea and stone bricked area for BBQ packs.
