    “The retreat was in a beautiful spot lovely views and very peaceful and we woke up to sun shine with a cup it tea in bed looking out at the view.”

    Unfortunately the towel radiator didn’t work in the bathroom so was difficult to dry towels. Also small things like no bread knife, we took some lovely sourdough uncut bread and really struggled to cut it. The mattress on the bad felt really worn and when we stripped the bed at the end we found out it was and really is ready for a new mattress. Other than that it was a very tranquil beautiful place to stay.

The property

Tucked away at the foot of a spectacular walking area of The Roaches, in the lovely quiet village of Upper Hulme, is this elegantly placed shepherd's hut.

Positioned in the most idyllic countryside setting, promising a romantic retreat for two, this pretty accommodation is just what you need for that well-deserved rest.

The peaceful outdoor surroundings personify the cool and tranquil nature of the interior space, by the light, neutral colour palette creating an uplifting mood.

Step inside to find a delightful set-up; the dining area comprises a beautiful wooden table which elegantly folds away to become the bed, presenting a lovely transition between night and day.

The kitchen has all the necessary equipment for cooking whilst the charming woodburner in the corner adds character and extra warmth during the colder seasons.

Just off from this open-plan layout is the shower room, completing the cabin with a quality finish.

To the outside of the cottage is a decking area with table and chairs; a divine little haven to sit out, soak up the summer sunshine or a light spring breeze and admire the breath-taking hillside vistas before you.

You will be mesmerised by the verdant pastures and beautiful landscapes as you enjoy a refreshing glass of wine accompanied by the smoky aroma of the barbecue, sizzling away - Pure bliss.

There are some fabulous walks and climbs to challenge you during your trip, all in the immediate area.

The delightful spa town of Buxton offers an assortment of shops, pubs and eateries and fantastic opera house, whilst the market town of Leek, has charming cobbled streets to behold along with fine Victorian architecture.

The Laburnum Retreat is a rather desirable cottage for couples seeking the peace and quiet of The Peak District.
