  • “The photos online didn’t do the cottage justice at all.”

    It was absolutely stunning and the owners thought of everything that you may need during a stay there. Would definitely go again

The property

Swadlincote 2.9 miles.

Nestled in the rural village of Bretby, a stone's throw away from the thriving market town of Burton-Upon-Trent, rests this striking whitewashed holiday home, The White Cottage.

Offering a homely and inviting interior, The White Cottage provides the perfect base for your next group celebration to the picturesque county of Derbyshire.

Upon your arrival you'll be delighted by the traditional whitewashed exterior of this marvellous dwelling, providing off-road and on road parking, making loading and unloading an easy task, you will find a utility room at the back of the house for coat/boot storage.

Stepping through the doorway, you enter into a delightful hallway before continuing through to the sociable living/dining area to put your feet up and unwind with a steaming mug of tea after an adventure-filled day.

Cook up a storm in the spacious kitchen, beautifully-appointed with a traditional wooden farmhouse décor, and gather your loved ones around the grand dining table to serve up your culinary delights as you plan your next group getaway.

If you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, take the celebrations outside with a seat on the patio, sharing a bottle of wine as you soak in the tranquil countryside views, ending the day in style with a leisurely soak amongst the bubbles under the canopy of the stars in the hot tub.

Completing the ground floor is a thoughtfully laid out king-size bedroom alongside a contemporary shower room, offering convenient ground-floor living to assist guests with limited mobility.

Heading upstairs, you'll find three further bedrooms, a spacious king-size bedroom and two twin rooms, all featuring a quirky shabby chic interior and providing a peaceful setting to rest your head.

In the morning, prepare for a new day in the modern family bathroom, fit with an elegant roll-top bath and a walk-in shower cubicle, giving guests the choice between soaking your muscles in the tub, or if you'd prefer, a quick morning rinse.

If you don't fancy cooking, there's a plethora of delicious eateries on your doorstep, including the traditional country pub, The Lamb Inn, where you can unwind with a refreshing pint of ale with a seat in the delightful beer garden, or if you'd prefer, indulge in a takeaway from Hillcrest Fishbar in the comfort of your holiday home.

Spend a fun-filled day out at the National Forest Adventure Farm on the outskirts of the nearby market town of Burton-upon-Trent, home to a delightful array of animals, thrilling rides and hosting family-friendly events, or partake in the guided tour through the The National Brewery Centre, where you can discover British brewing and enjoy delicious samples en route.

Venture further afield to the vibrant city of Derby, home to a plethora of exciting shopping opportunities and eateries to suit all tastes, as well as an array of art galleries worth visiting, including Whitewall Galleries, homing paintings and sculptures from internationally acclaimed artists, alongside Derby Museum & Art Gallery, displaying collections relating to regional and military history, or if you time it right, you might be able to catch a thrilling game at Derbyshire County Cricket Club.
