Property code: PK939

This 300-year-old stone cottage offers the perfect blend of period charm and contemporary conveniences in an unbeatable village location with a walled courtyard perfect for summer evenings.

Located on the banks of the River Derwent and with the far-reaching views of Curbar Edge less than 2 miles away, the pretty village of Calver truly does represent the best of the beautiful Peak District. Stay in this traditional stone cottage and embrace the beauty of the local area, venturing out on day trips to historic Bakewell and fascinating Eyam or exploring the dramatic landscapes at Froggatt Woods. At the end of each and every day, you can come home and stay in comfort, truly appreciating this family property that happily sleeps eight guests and two dogs.

Steeped in history and yet lovingly updated to host a modern family or group of friends, this property truly does offer the best of both worlds. Unique features including beamed ceilings, a stone flagged fireplace and a classic range cooker have been paired with stylish decor and ever-comfortable furniture. Flock to the lounge to enjoy cosy evenings in, throwing a log or two on the wood burner and planning your next day’s adventure. You’re also welcome to unwind of an evening in the private courtyard, a sunny spot with furniture and a BBQ. When it’s time for bed, you’ll find four inviting bedrooms laid out on the first floor, each offering a lovely spot in which to catch forty winks.

From easy-going walks in Froggatt Woods (2.5 miles) to the more challenging route of Curbar Edge (1.5 miles), this property is in a prime position for keen hikers. Enjoy a relaxing walk along the banks of the River Derwent (0.5 miles) or perhaps an afternoon of fishing, always heading home via the village pub for a swift one. The majestic Chatsworth House (4.5 miles) is a riveting day out for all the family, as is an underground tour of the fascinating Peak Cavern (11 miles).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Such a lovely cottage and everything we needed for a comfortable stay. It was clean, well equipped and bigger than we expected from the photos. Great location, lots of walks right from the door step, plenty of dog friendly pubs in walking distance. The local Spar has a great selection of local produce and the Toll Bar fish and chip shop, 5 minutes Read moredrive, excellent! The views from Curbar Edge are stunning and worth the hike up the hill, the river walk less strenuous but beautiful. Thank you!! Hide

This cottage was perfect for our family party of 7 adults and 1 toddler. The downstairs rooms are large and comfortable and the bedrooms are delightful. Everything was clean and welcoming when we arrived and we quickly felt at home. There is no passing traffic outside and it is very quiet at night. The village is lovely and everyone we met was frieRead morendly. It's very well situated for walking and sightseeing with Chatsworth just 2 miles away. Five stars all round. Hide

Very spacious and attractive cottage, tastefully decorated and modernised, but retaining its olde-world character. It is in an ideal location, near to the centre of Calver village and well-placed for visiting other places in the Peak District such as Bakewell and Chatsworth.
