Perfect for couples, friends and small families, this cosy cottage with wonderful views will be your home from home. Enjoy nights in the garden, watching the stars and relaxing with good company.

Enjoy everything the Peak District has to offer from this cosy cottage with wonderful views, perfect for a group of four friends or two couples. This pretty home is in Cressbrook, a delightful village perched on the River Wye and on the cusp of the Derbyshire Dales National Nature Reserve. The popular Monsal Trail is just a short walk away, perfect for cyclists, walkers and horse riders.

Accessed via some steep steps, this contemporary cottage is welcoming and comfortable. It has everything you will need while holidaying in the Peak District, including space to hang up your wet coats, a large range oven to cook up a storm, and outdoor space for dining alfresco. Take a seat at the dining table and admire the superb views out towards the rolling countryside, or fire up the wood burner and unwind on the sofas in front of the TV. Upstairs are three delightful bedrooms. To the rear of the cottage is a pretty, enclosed, courtyard garden. Out here you will find a table and chairs, a BBQ and further, far-reaching views across to the Derbyshire Dales.

Midway between Buxton and Bakewell, the lovely village of Cressbrook is tucked away from the main roads and is at a junction of the dales. This means you’ll be well situated to explore the varying countryside around you. The village is home to millponds that attract abundant wildlife and Cressbrook Dale is popular with rock climbers and those who enjoy woodland walks. The River Wye winds through the Peak District, and there are opportunities for paddleboarding, kayaking and fishing. For pubs, cafes and shops, head to nearby Tideswell (3 miles).

We had a wonderful week at Swift Retreat. The cottage was immaculately clean on our arrival and we loved the views out of the back windows and the quiet location. The beds are very comfortable and the towels were soft and fluffy. The area is stunning - a highlight for us was the Chee Dale gorge and cycling the Monsal trail. Anna was very helpful anRead mored gave us a lovely welcome. We would highly recommend Swift Retreat and hope to be back soon. Hide

This was a beautiful, cozy and comfortable cottage. Clean and well equipped, we had an excellent stay. We had no car so arrived by train/cab, ordered groceries for delivery online and everything went smoothly. Stunning view out all the windows, friendly neighbours, beautiful walks up and down hills, along rivers, through farms with our one year oldRead more. The host went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. She put in extra toys, brought a paddle pool, moved furniture to set up bedroom with cot. Hide

Nice cottage great view down valley. how quiet!!!! Really was a good base for Monsall trail and surrounding area of Peaks at a very god price for cottage hire. We spent a week doing long walks as part of wedding anniversary holiday - it was great for what we needed. there's no cupboards (space dictates though) for upright clothes storage so is a biRead moret of living out of bags and we had to rely on netflix/i-player etc as no access to tv channels when we were there (not a big issue for us though) Hide
