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.

The property is located in the peaceful rural hamlet of Highcliffe, surrounded by rolling hills bordered by dry stone walls. The historic plague village of Eyam is just a mile away which, together with its famous past, boasts a thriving country pub, restaurant and Saxon church. If you head north from the property, you’ll find the picturesque mining village of Castleton, the beginning of the popular Pennine Way and the many attractions of the Hope Valley beyond.

Inside the property the beamed lounge features a large window and door leading out to the patio, as well as a solid fuel stove set within a traditional gritstone fireplace. With a bookshelf stacked with interesting and useful local resources and historic information, this is the perfect place to relax in front of the cosy fire and plan the day ahead. In the adjacent kitchen, which displays cream cabinets, pretty splash back tiles and all the essentials you should need for your stay, there is also a good-sized dining table. Upstairs, the bedroom has been decorated in cool, contemporary shades for a relaxing night’s sleep. An exposed beam adds character to the room, while the bright and airy en suite bathroom is the perfect place to end a busy day with a soak in the tub, there is a shower over the bath, hand basin and toilet.

If the sun is shining, there’s no better place to unwind than on the small patio area to the front of the cottage and take in the rolling views.

The cottage was nice and comfortable in respect of furnishings, especially the bed. However, this was over the Christmas period which in this area was particularly wet. The dampness prevailed in the atmosphere with most days shrouded in thick fog making our stay less pleasant.
