    “The house is adorable and looks ...”
    The house is adorable and looks even better than it does in the photos! Cost and comfortable for a winters break, it was situated 10 minutes from from many villages with all the little shops and history. Chatsworth was practically along the road, and there was great walks all around too. Our one rainy day was spent in Sheffield for shopping, food and cinema (Meadowhall mall) only a 45 minutes away! The only downside for us was no wifi and with very limited signal is menat we couldn't get online ...

The property

This is a delightful, detached cottage, located in the heart of the pretty village of Calver, in the Peak District National Park.

Beautiful throughout and retaining some wonderful character, this Calver cottage makes an excellent romantic retreat for couples looking to enjoy this beautiful part of the Derbyshire countryside.

Set over three floors and boasting lovely village views, the charming lounge with woodburning stove is a great place to relax and unwind, or if you fancy a little 'alone time', make the most of the mezzanine sitting area, complete with books, games and a music centre that plays LPs and CDs.

On the lower ground floor is a cosy double bedroom complete with en-suite shower room, while outside the cottage, you will find a table and chairs to sit and enjoy a morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening.

The village of Calver offers a traditional country pub, less than a minute’s stroll from this Derbyshire cottage, as well as a cafe, a supermarket, an art gallery and a craft shop.

There are off road walks that lead directly onto Froggatt and Curbar Edge, plus the National Trust-owned Longshaw Estate is close by.

The magnificent Chatsworth House Estate, villages of Baslow, Eyam and Bakewell, the ‘ancient capital of the Peak", are all within five miles, making this Calver cottage the perfect romantic retreat, at any time of year!

About the location


Baslow 1.5 miles; Eyam 2 miles; Bakewell 5 miles.

The delightful, traditional village of Calver lies in the shadow of Froggatt Edge and Curbar Gap, in the heart of the Peak District National Park. A wonderfully traditional village with a Post Office and a country pub serving good food, Calver is close to the National Trust-owned Longshaw Estate, and less than five miles from Chatsworth House - home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. As well as a traditional pub and Post Office, the pretty village of Calver has a cafe, petrol station, small supermarket selling local produce, 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 and a half 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. Haddon Hall is close by, as is the historic village of Eyam with its selection of pubs, cafes and a craft centre, meaning a day out in the parish of Curbar can be enjoyed by all.
