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.

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

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 !

The Trap House is a lovely little cottage, well equipped, and quite adequate and comfortable for two people. The location is central and brilliant for exploring the whole Peak District. We can happily recommend this place.

Trap House is a tiny character property. Cosy. Location is great for walking but a little awkward on a tight bend with the parking space opposite, up a steep ramp. It is situated outside the village and walking to the village would be difficult.
