This bright and airy converted farm building displays the perfect mix of traditional charm and modern convenience. Located in a rural location on a working farm, it enjoys beautiful countryside views.
This fabulous cottage sleeps four guests and is just 5 miles from the thermal spa town of Buxton. As well as a plethora of picturesque towns and villages, the area also boasts some truly spectacular walking routes. From the 268-mile Pennine Way, which starts in nearby Edale (15 miles), to a gentle afternoon stroll around the woodlands at Corbar Cross (6 miles), there’s something to suit everyone. Thrill-seekers will enjoy taking on the zip wires and giant swings at Go Ape (6 miles), which has one of the highest courses in the country.
Inside, the spacious property has a reverse layout, to really make the most of the countryside views from the living areas, with two pretty bedrooms downstairs. The cottage is full of rustic charm, with exposed beams and stonework bringing character to each area. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is the social hub of the property, with ample seating for you to unwind after a day of exploring and a large dining table to enjoy mealtimes together. Outside, there’s a charming patio surrounded by a traditional dry-stone wall, where you can sip a morning coffee or dine alfresco on a summer’s evening.
The Great Ridge Walk is a fantastic way to get a feel for the landscape. Starting in Castleton (13 miles), the route encompasses the iconic Mam Tor and provides glorious views over Hope Valley. You’ll also pass the show caves of Treak Cliff and Blue John Cavern, which you really must explore if you have the time. Step back 900 years with a visit to Haddon Hall (10 miles), where you’ll find untouched interiors dating back to the 14th century and a magical Elizabethan walled garden. Head into Buxton to admire the stunning Georgian and Victorian architecture, rest your aching limbs with a spa day or peruse the many independent boutiques and galleries.
