This rural escape is perfect for couples looking for a peaceful Peak District getaway, with picturesque dog-friendly walks on the doorstep and lots of popular amenities within easy reach.

A charming stonework cottage surrounded by rolling countryside vistas near the village of Curbar; this romantic couples retreat is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts with a four-legged friend seeking a restorative break in the Peak District. Set off on a brisk morning stroll along the woodland banks of River Derwent to the quaint village of Froggatt, then settle in front of the crackling wood burner with a fresh coffee and a sweet treat.

This beautifully presented property is brimming with rustic charm and boasts earthy stone and wooden textures, exposed beams, and stable doors. Store muddy hiking boots at the door then step into the open-plan heart of the home. Stock up the wooden kitchen cabinets with locally sourced goodies and perch at the breakfast table with a hearty morning spread and a fresh brew. After a day in the hills, fire up the wood burner and settle on the armchairs with a well-earned aperitif and unwind with a movie on the Smart TV. Sink into the roll-top bath for a relaxing soak, then retreat to the inviting king-size room styled with bright soft furnishings. Choose from two patios and bask in the afternoon sun with an al fresco drink.

As per the description, a very nice place to stay. The owners were very accommodating and the property is in a great location for walks. The spa shop is very close by for provisions and we went for a drink in the chequers pub which seemed nice and was serving very good meals.

This was a really comfortable and cosy holiday home. The owners were so helpful and friendly. I was made to feel welcome and so was my dog. The location is ideal, quiet, scenic and close to many wonderful areas of the Derbyshire Dales. I would love to stay again sometime.
