An enchanting property nestled amidst the natural beauty of the Peak District National Park. The Irishman’s is a wonderful place from which to enjoy the many attractions of this beautiful area.
Lose yourself in nature with a romantic break in this pretty stone cottage, surrounded by open countryside and nothing but the sound of the local wildlife. The property is perfectly placed for those who love exploring on foot, with a wealth of walking trails from your front door. Those looking for a long-distance challenge can take on the 268-mile Pennine Way, which starts at nearby Edale (4.5 miles). The thermal spa town of Buxton is just 8.5 miles away and has a great selection of independent shops and eateries.
The cottage is located within a complex in the grounds of the owner’s property and is full of character, with gorgeous stone flooring and exposed beams. The open-plan living area is decorated in neutral tones to create a relaxed atmosphere. After an action-packed day, fire up the wood burner and snuggle up on the plump sofa under the impressive vaulted ceiling. Outside, there’s a charming seating area that catches the evening sun, so you can unwind with a glass of wine at the end of the day, listening to the birds singing. You’re also welcome to wander over to the owner’s paddocks to say hello to the horses and alpacas. At the end of the day, a soothing double bedroom awaits.
The picturesque village of Castleton (4 miles) is well worth a visit during your stay. Explore its underground showcaves before hiking to the top of Mam Tor for some truly spectacular views. The Pennine Way starts in Edale, and from here there’s a fantastic circular route that encompasses Kinder Scout, the highest point of the Peak District. As expected, the scenery is glorious and there are also some dramatic gritstone cliffs that are excellent for rock climbing. The site has a fascinating past, as it was the site of the Mass Trespass of 1932 which sparked the creation of England’s national parks.
