    • “This cottage is great, clean, comfortable and warm with log fire. Large rooms and garden great for the dog. 5 mins drive from glossop with lots of shops including tesco. Has wifi which was great , took my tablet and found places to visit. Close to some cottages but still private. There is a walk from the door which takes you onto the pennine way. Turn left at end of drive go down lane past some cottages turn right at the end go through equestrian centre towards the cafe turn right past the small animal farm then follow it down. We was told by a neighbour else we've wouldn't have known it was there. We will definitely be back again in the future xx”

    • “The Cottage is detached and set in a wonderful rural location. Tranquil and picturesque. I am a light sleeper and you can hear the planes occasionally at night flying in to Manchester Airport but I really didn't find it an issue and would definitely stay here again. The bed is very comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. We have a small dog who could get through the gate, so we bought some netting and fenced it off a bit more. The are lots of local shops but we tended to use the coop at Simmondley. The local pub Hare and Hounds serves good food but isn't Dog Friendly, but if it is sunny they have a nice decked area to eat on. Hope to come back again.”

    • “We wondered if January week at the top of the Peak District was a bit of a risk, but the weather stayed fine for us and everyday was topped off by returning to this beautiful cottage. The village of Charlesworth is quaint and full of interesting buildings made from the traditional stone and perfectly equipped with two pubs, a beautiful greengrocers with a fish counter and a convenience store which conveniently seems to stock everything you could want, they even make sandwiches to order! When we arrived at the cottage on the first day, the heating was on, the fire was laid and everything was spotlessly clean, the garden is huge with plenty of room for an energetic boxer dog to run around, although after each days walk she was fit for nothing more than collapsing in front of the log burner. The kitchen was well stocked and the gas powered range was a joy to cook with. Upstairs the bedrooms were great, topped off by the skylight above the master bed, and the p-shaped bath was the perfect way to end each day. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable stay in a cottage we can't recommend highly enough.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed for a week in august this year and took our dog with us. The cottage was beautiful and had a huge garden overlooking an equine centre. Surrounded by stunning views and plenty of lovely walks, The main bedroom had a velux window which was lovely for laying in bed looking at the stars too. A well equipped, comfortable cottage that I would not hesitate to recommend. Our only suggestion would be to have a side gate erected to make the garden safe and enclosed for dogs.”

    Mr Pedryc, Sheffield, December 2014

    • “We loved the fact that The Cottage was away from everything and so nice and peaceful down the little lane. It was also very cosy in the evenings. Everything was provided that we could possibly need.”

    Mr Blondel, Ipswich, November 2014

    • “Great attention to detail in the presentation of The Cottage, every necessary item was thoughtfully provided in the kitchen, for example. The Cottage is attractive and cheering, even in winter. Its location makes it ideal for touring the northern Peak District and it has handy access to the Manchester area if required. The owner was very helpful when contacted prior to the visit and provided useful information by email. The Cottage is dog-friendly - which was a must for us. Pleasant neighbours. Overall, highly recommended we would certainly like to return one day.”

    Dr Ferguson, Minehead, November 2014

    • “We loved it all- the location, clean, spacious, warm log fire, garden.”

    Miss Brown, BURNTWOOD, November 2014

    • “This cottage was warm and cosy with lovely neighbours. It was out in the country but only a short distance from amenities. The log fire was a great addition although we were lucky enough to have a mild October week. The cottage is ideally placed for numerous visits locally and beyond and you could get the train into Manchester if you wished. All in all a home from home.”

    Mrs Cosslett, Ormskirk, October 2014

    • “The Cottage was the perfect little getaway. The garden was perfect for the dog and again is a brilliant place for walking with a dog. The cottage was clean and welcoming and had everything we needed for our stay. We couldn't of really asked for anything else it was just perfect. We will be returning as soon as we can.”

    Mrs Underwood, Hinckley, September 2014

    • “The Cottage was very comfortable, warm, relaxing and especially welcoming after a busy day walking and sightseeing. The garden was fabulous and our dog loved it.”

About the location


Buxton 14 miles.

The bustling, former mill town of Glossop sits in the north west of Derbyshire, surrounded by magnificent scenery in the Peak District. The town has plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as a golf course with a pay-per-play scheme. Nearby, Manor Park was once the grounds of Glossop Hall, which belonged to the Dukes of Norfolk. Today it provides a wonderful spot for a picnic in the summer, with bowling greens, a semi-natural woodland, a children’s play area and tennis courts. The town of Glossop is also ideally situated for exploring the nearby Peak District National Park, with many attractions for walkers, cyclists and tourists. These include the peaceful village of Hayfield, less than five miles away and popular with walkers due its close proximity to Kinder Scout. A little further afield, Edale is the start of the Pennine Way and also caters well for tourists with its own collection of pubs, cafes and restaurants. As well as its magnificent scenery, the Peak District has many other attractive places to visit, including Chatsworth House, the spa town of Buxton and its majestic gardens and architecture. Visit the famous Blue John show caves at Castleton, the mining museum at Matlock and the Derwent Valley reservoirs, where The Dambusters practised low-level flying in World War II. 15 miles away, only half an hour by train, is Manchester with all its big city amenities and attractions. Here, you will find the United and City football stadiums, an abundance of high street and boutique shops, theatres, restaurants, a concert hall and a vibrant night life. With so much to see, do and visit in the surrounding area, you are sure of a fun-filled holiday!
