Property code: PK478

This cosy hideaway is full of character in a rural hamlet location with historic connections to Highcliffe Hall. Includes an outside patio area for alfresco dining and countryside views and is within easy reach of the local pub.

Set your sights on the Hope Valley for an unforgettable staycation surrounded by heather-strewn moorland, luscious green hills and pretty villages. Elevated above the countryside with views of rolling fields bordered by dry-stone walls, this couple’s retreat is packed with character and offers a comfortable base for exploring the great outdoors. Navigate a myriad of trails from your doorstep, refuelling with delicious pub lunches and local ales before returning to unwind by the wood burner.

Rustic and charming with a traditional stone exterior, wooden beams and a stone fireplace that hosts a wood burner, your accommodation is open-plan and relaxing. There’s a kitchen with all the gadgets you need to rustle up a feast, which you can enjoy at the table or curled up on the sofa. The bedroom is carefully styled for a restful night’s sleep upstairs, and there’s an en-suite bathroom for soaking tired limbs. You’ll be able to take in the views from your pretty patio area, and there’s off-road parking for one car.

Whether you are keen to unravel the fascinating history of the area or can’t wait to tackle a bracing walk across the rugged landscape, this peaceful corner of the Peak District is perfect for your explorations. The tranquil hamlet of Highcliffe is rural and wild, located on the cusp of Eyam, a plague village with a tragic past and more than a few throwbacks to Saxon times. Further afield, Castleton (10.5 miles) is the starting point for the iconic Pennine Way, a must for walkers of all abilities. The Hope Valley is arguably one of the most scenic landscapes in the entire national park, so why not grab a map and pack up a picnic and begin your adventures.

A lovely, cosy cottage in a great location, the only real issue was the lack of wi-fi. We did get a good mobile signal, but if like us, you use the internet for researching places to visit, planning trips, and keeping in touch with friends and family, you'll need a good mobile data package.

The trap house, is a home from home, you were made to feel welcome milk and eggs waiting. The house to us is in the ideal location, in which to explore the Peak District, walking across the fens to visit the pubs and eat the food. The people are very friendly the local bistro offers a welcome respite from your endeavours. Highly recommended!

We had a really lovely stay at The Trap House. Everything we needed was there. It was wonderful to have the fire available as it got very chilly in the evening. Being a dog friendly cottage, it was comfortable but not so pristine that we were worried about our dog being there. Beautiful walks nearby. It was very thoughtful having fresh milk, eggs, Read moretea and coffee when we arrived. A restful and quiet place to stay. Hide

The cottage is lovely and it was great to get home and get the fire going. The cottage is up the hill from Eyam and the views of the area are spectacular. Thank you to the owner who when we accidentally lost the key to the cottage with the spare inside, he came out and rescued us with another key.

The cottage is well equipped and can be cosy. I got some split dry logs as I found the multi fuel stove tricky to get going with just the firefighters, kindling and smokeless solid fuel. Apart from that I appreciated the Christmas decorations.

A beautifully cosy cottage in a small hamlet - ideal for a weeks getaway. We have stayed there a number of times and will be back again in the future. The mattress is the softest I have ever slept on - I thought I might struggle (we have a firm mattress at home) but slept soundly every night. The fresh eggs left by the owners are delicious !
