The booking via Sykes was very 'user-friendly', done very easily by helpful and friendly staff, and follow up emails quick and efficient.

Hartington nestles in the Manifold Valley at the heart of the White Peak, a region of rolling dales, dry-stone walls and picturesque, limestone villages.
Find your bearings with a wander around the village. Look out for the pretty stone cottages around the square, the old village pump, a fine Norman church, The Charles Cotton Hotel (named after a successful businessman and co-author of 'The Compleat Angler) and the splendid Jacobean Youth Hostel, Hartington Hall - its restaurant has won awards and the bar stocks a good choice of local ales.
Hire a bike for fresh air and exercise! The Tissington Trail runs close by, offering seventeen miles of traffic-free cycling for all the family. It's also popular with walkers and horse riders, forming part of the Pennine Bridleway. The High Peak Trail and Manifold Valley Trail are also on your Hartington cottage doorstep, so you can enjoy a different walk, ride or cycle every day of your stay!
Enjoy riverside rambles along the River Dove, passing through Beresford Dale, Wolfscote Dale and eventually on to Dovedale. Protected by the National Trust, Dovedale is one of the prettiest spots in the Peak District, renowned for its dramatic limestone ravine and iconic stepping stones across the river.
Hartington's pubs, cafés and shops, including the charming Old Cheese Shop in the village square, attract lots of visitors by day. Evenings, meanwhile, are a much quieter affair - perhaps a night on the sofa in your lovely Hartington cottage or a pint down at the local. Cheers!
