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.

The nearby village of Curbar offers a traditional country pub, as well as a cafe, a supermarket, an art gallery, and a craft shop. Spreading across the floor of the Derwent Valley, the village is surrounded by stunning scenery and walking routes, including gritstone edges, heather-clad moorland, grassy heights, and limestone outcrops. There are off-road walks that lead directly onto Froggatt (1 mile) and Curbar Edge (1.5 miles) from the village, plus the National Trust-owned Longshaw Estate (4 miles) is close by. The magnificent Chatsworth House Estate, villages of Baslow, Eyam, and Bakewell, the ‘ancient capital of the Peak", are all within five miles, making this cottage the perfect romantic retreat at any time of year!

Set within the grounds of the owners’ home, step inside this pretty detached barn and into the open plan lounge/kitchen/diner, which offers a warm and welcoming space. Notice the vast vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, tiled floor, and floor to ceiling windows that let the light flood in. Cook up a memorable meal in the kitchen which offers an electric oven and hob, fridge, dishwasher, and microwave. Take time over that special meal at the nearby dining table and relax on the comfortable sofas in front of the roaring wood burner and Smart TV after a day exploring the surrounding hills. Retire to the bedroom which offers a king-size bed, matching bedroom furniture, and another spacious vaulted ceiling. Take a long soak in the freestanding bath or enjoy an invigorating shower to prepare you for the day ahead.

Outside, there are two pretty patios to choose from. Enjoy sitting and taking in the fresh air during the summer months. There is a paddock that is home to the owners' pony, and guests are welcome to use this paddock. There is off-road parking for two cars.

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.
