The property

A delightful, immaculately-presented, detached former stable situated within the grounds of the owner's home in the sleepy, pretty village of Curbar in the heart of the Peak District National Park. Beautiful throughout, retaining original features including beams and high stable windows, this Peak District cottage is the perfect base to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Set all on the ground floor, this cottage near Bakewell offers a sitting room with a cosy woodburning stove and French doors that lead you out onto a lovely front patio area. This Curbar holiday home also has a kitchen/diner, a double bedroom and a bathroom with roll-top bath and separate shower cubicle. The village amenities of Curbar are a lovely walk away, where you will find a pub, a cafe, an art gallery and a craft shop. There are off road walks from this holiday home that lead directly onto Froggatt Edge and Curbar Edge, plus the National Trust-owned Longshaw Estate is close by. The magnificent Chatsworth House, Baslow, Bakewell and Buxton are a short drive away, making this Curbar cottage an ideal retreat for a couple, at any time of year.

Guest Reviews


    • “Great accommodation, great location and great people.”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The accommodation is very fresh / new and I felt it was well worth the money. The log burner is great and really gets you in the mood for chilled out evenings. This is especially welcomed following a day of walking. The location is relatively close to a few shops and there are many great walks close by. Ann who owns the accommodation was very welcoming and helped me with the log burner. It wasn't the log burner, more my skills! She put a few food essentials in the fridge and on the side - this was a lovely touch. I don't have any criticisms. I had a great stay and plan to stay again next year. I have already recommended this to friends and will to others.”

About the location


Baslow 1 mile; Bakewell 6 miles.

The sleepy village of Curbar lies just below Froggatt Edge and Curbar Gap in the heart of the Peak District National Park, just a stone’s throw from the National Trust owned Longshaw Estate and less than five miles from Chatsworth House - home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. This pretty village has a collection of Peak District Millstones, a pub, a craft shop and a gallery, and is a wonderful base for walks, climbing and mountain biking. The village of Baslow with shops, pubs and restaurants is only a mile away and a further range of amenities can be found in the market town of Bakewell, the capital of the Peak District and home to the famous Bakewell pudding (definitely not tart!). Haddon Hall is close by and Alton Towers Theme Park is also within easy touring distance meaning there is plenty to enjoy from Curbar.
