    "It was a great cottage, clean and cosy. The hosts were friendly and very approachable and nothing was too much trouble. The location was superb and there was plenty to do in the area. We would like to come back again.

The property

Longnor 2 miles.

A delightful, detached stone-built cottage on a working smallholding, less than two miles from the Peaks village of Longnor.

The cottage provides warm and welcoming accommodation, with a spacious fitted kitchen with dining area, a cosy sitting room, and delightful bedrooms with original beams.

Glen Cottage is ideal for getting away from it all to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the surrounding countryside.

Situated in 'curlew country', Glen Cottage is an excellent base for birdwatching, or alternatively, the nearby quaint, cobbled village of Longnor provides an array of shops and traditional pubs, whilst the Manifold Valley and Tissington Trail offer great walking and cycling opportunities.

With the spa town of Buxton, the lovely market town of Bakewell and the thrilling Alton Towers theme park within easy reach, this is a fabulous location whatever the time of year.
