  • 300 year-old cottage full of chocolate box charm

  • Enjoying beautiful rural views up to Curbar Edge with stunning walks right on your doorstep
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 in the heart of the old part of the stone built Derbyshire village of Calver, the property is within walking distance of the local shops, cafes and gallery. Spreading across the floor of the Derwent Valley, the village is surrounded by stunning scenery and walking routes, including gristone edges, heather clad moorland, grassy heights and limestone outcrops. The family-run – and allegedly haunted – Derwentwater Arms sits overlooking the village and cricket field, the perfect spot to enjoy a pub lunch.

The property is entered through the pretty stone wall and iron front fence into the dining hall. With stone flagged floors and an original decorative fireplace with traditional gritstone surround, this is a suitably grand venue in which to enjoy your evening meals. Beyond the dining room, the newly refurbished kitchen is fitted with a Rayburn Range Cooker and stocked with everything you should need throughout your stay. On sunny evenings, guests can enjoy an al fresco meal in the private courtyard located through the kitchen. Once you’ve finished your meals, head to the sitting room to relax next to the log burning stove in one of the many sofas under the beamed ceiling.

A twin bedroom, which has 2 steps down, and easy access to the downstairs bathroom with shower cubicle, toilet and hand wash basin which is also located on this floor, while the three remaining bedrooms can be found upstairs. The master bedroom features a super king-size bed with an en-suite shower room. There is a second bedroom with twin beds and tranquil views across fields. The final bedroom has a double bed and enjoys views to Curber Gap. All bedrooms on this floor have access to the family bathroom which has a large shower cubicle, bath, toilet and hand wash basin.

Outside is a small private walled courtyard with afternoon sun, ideal for BBQs.

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

Fantastic, scenic location. The Old Bulls Head made our holiday very special. Plenty locally. Enjoyed a breakfast & coffees at Craft Gift Shop. Within easy distance of walks, Bakewell,Castleton & beautiful Chatsworth House.

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.

Super house! Beautiful and well equipped. Such a peaceful location, with great walking from the doorstep. The local Spar is phenomenally well stocked and open 7-10 every day (except Christmas Day) and an easy walk from the house. We are already thinking about a return visit.

The Old Bull's Head is an absolute gem - well furnished and a real home-from-home. It has a lovely cosy feel and is well equipped, it is also very well placed for some lovely walks from the door. It was so comfortable we were reluctant to leave and would love to stay there again.

We used the accommodation for a 10 year reunion of friends who met travelling. The property was spacious, very clean, high standard of furnishings and catered well to our needs with young children in the party. I would love to stay again and certainly recommend to others.

Really comfortable and clean cottage. Perfect for a family break. Lots of walks along the river or up on the Edges close, and many attractions a short car journey away. Three restaurants/pubs within a short walk and also a very well equipped Spar supermarket. Very relaxing. A beautiful setting with spectacular views.

This is a beautiful spacious cottage in a quiet village setting in the hear of the dales. There is a whole week's worth of activities within a short distance of Calver from the incredible Chatsworht estate, to the charm of Bakewell, the view from Curbar Edge and the macabre story of the 'plague village' of Eyam. Sunday lunch at the Derwentwater ArmRead mores was excellent (be sure to book in advace and ask for a window table with views across the valley). Hide

What a fabulous cottage. A wonderful position for exploring the Peak District, situated in a pretty village with plenty of pubs, coffee shops and a gourmet style Spar shop! The view from the sitting room toward Barlow Edge was a joy! The cottage has everything you need and the photos don't really do it justice. We loved it!
