Nestled down a quiet country lane and overlooking its own landscape, this country cottage is perfect for large groups of friends or families wishing to unwind and relax in the Derbyshire countryside.

Practically hidden amongst the surrounding countryside of the southern Peak District, you’d be forgiven for thinking you had stumbled across a property that’s straight out of a storybook. This characterful cottage sleeps nine and is perfectly suited to families, placing you close to stunning Dovedale with Thorpe Cloud on the horizon and the beautiful stepping stones within easy reach. Beneath the stone exterior is a haven characterised by high ceilings, timber beams and additional period features, all blended together by traditional furniture and elegant soft furnishings. Whether you are basking by the open fire in the lounge or appreciating the ambience of a second fire whilst tucking into your evening meal, the socialising spaces in this property are excellent for celebrations. The kitchen is fit for a feast with ample worktop space and appliances, offering a contemporary edge to the otherwise old-world charm of the building. At bedtime, you’ll have five bedrooms to choose from including a super-king-size accessed via a private staircase, also boasting an en-suite shower room, a seating area and an electric fire. The remaining rooms are also impressive, all sharing a bathroom and WC. Outside, the vast expanse of lawn is sure to thrill the youngest members of your party whilst you sit back and enjoy a soothing brew in peace. Don your walking boots and set off across the Thorpe pastures, navigating a tapestry of rolling dales, pockets of woodland and beautiful riverside meadows. Satisfy your sense of adventure and take to the Tissington Trail with a picnic in tow, or change pace entirely and treat the family to a day out to remember at Alton Towers, 10.5 miles away. A visit to Bakewell, 15 miles away, is a must too, simply to peruse the shops and sample a slice of the iconic pudding.

  • 5 bedrooms - 1 super-king-size, 1 twin, 2 doubles and 1 single
  • 1 bathroom with shower over bath and WC, 1 shower room with shower and WC and 1 en-suite shower room with WC

The pictures do not do justice to this lovely property. It is well equipped, spacious yet homely. The garden is private and we made the most of dining outdoors. Beautiful walks in all directions from the property. Our family holiday had three generations and it suited everyone.

Such comfortable and spacious home, and garden, for a family holiday. Feels like home thanks to inspiring decoration and furniture. The birds songs were wonderful particularly in the evening. Last but not least it's such a plus to have all these walks straight from from the door, no car needed!
