Primitive Mews

Three delightful, stone-built, Peak District cottages, in the peaceful village of Chelmorton, 4 miles from the historic town of Buxton and 7 miles from Bakewell. A lovely renovation of a traditional stone barn dating from 1837, these fantastic Peak District cottages skilfully blend original character and contemporary styling, with exposed stonework, stone flagged flooring and en-suite bedrooms, whilst enjoying an idyllic village position. All three cottages also enjoy use of a grass paddock, perfect for family games. The surrounding area offers great walking and cycling and an abundance of wildlife, from Deepdale to the summit of the Low with its prehistoric barrows, which is also well-known for its September 1000ft fell race. Perfectly placed for all the National Park has to offer, these Peak District cottages really do offer a magnificent holiday retreat.

    • “Chelmorton is a good location to start from, there is nothing in the village except for a nice pub with good food & friendly proprieters.We were allowed in the cottage early as there was no-one in before us owners were very nice & helpful cottage was comfortable tele was a bit "iffy" but no real problem . Plenty in the area to visit .”

    • “A well converted old stable, with friendly hosts who took so much trouble to tell us about the cottage and the facilities locally. The cottage was peaceful and quiet and had lovely views all round.”

    Mr Knott, Wirral, July 2015

    • “Really nice spacious cottage in a lovely area. Would definitely come back.”

    Mrs Sherratt, Newcastle, October 2014

    • “Lovely character cottage in stunning part of the country. The non contact arrangements worked well, I wanted to be left alone to get on with it. The essential supplies were a nice touch and appreciated.”

    Ms White, Bristol, October 2014

    • “No 1 was attractive both inside & out and very nicely furnished. The cottage was in a good position for local walks & going further afield. Good road connections to other areas of The Peak District. The owners were very welcoming & helpful. The cottage did not have a garden as such but had a large area & pasture for my dog to safely go in. The car parking was more than ample. Great views from all windows.”

    Mrs Garrett, Felixstowe, June 2014

    • “So peaceful with walks accessible from the village and others only a short drive away.”

    Mrs Gaffney, Burton Upon Trent, May 2014

    • “The cottage was perfect for a couple's getaway! Comfy furnishings, a big TV to relax at the end of a day exploring and fantastic walking/cycling on the doorstep! Food in the village pub was hearty and well worth a visit! In addition, what set the cottage apart from other stays was the attention to small details taken by the owners. A welcome drink on Friday night to introduce themselves and provide tips on what to do/see, the local OS map which was useful for our day trips, use of their shed to store our bikes and finally as it was Easter, we even received a visit from the Easter bunny! Highly recommended!”

    Mr Harwood, London, April 2014

    • “I had a lovely birthday weekend here with my husband and dog. The reception from the owners on the Friday evening was really nice. They provided lots of good walks, places to visit etc. Great walks directly from the door so did not need to use the car with the added advantage of an exceptional dog friendly pub 5 mins walk up the hill. This was the smaller of 2 other cottages they have and would definitely recommend the cottages and will hopefully be back.”

    Mrs Morris, Nr Coventry, January 2014

    • “The parking and garden area was great. The cottage was very pleasant, good sized lounge and bedroom.”
