The property

A character, semi-detached cottage set on the owner’s working farm on the outskirts of the village of Rowarth near to Glossop in the lovely Derbyshire Peak District.

Wonderful throughout to provide cosy and character accommodation, this cottage is just the spot for families wanting to enjoy the surrounding Derbyshire villages and attractions or have a go at the varied walks from the doorstep.

On entering the cottage, you arrive in a spacious hallway with plenty of space to store your coats and boots.

This then leads to the lovely spacious sitting room with fantastic views to the countryside and beyond.

There is a well-equipped kitchen with its’ own table and chairs, making a great social space to prepare and enjoy some lovely home cooked meals.

There are two light and spacious bedrooms, both with countryside views as well as a family bathroom.

To the front is an enclosed courtyard area with furniture.

To the rear is a large lawned area with a patio and BBQ, which makes a great place to relax with a glass of something chilled whilst enjoying the fantastic views.

There are numerous walks and cycling opportunities from the doorstep of this cottage with the start of the Pennine Way and the Peak District National Park being close by.

Rowarth has a family friendly pub, The Little Mill, which offers good food, a childrens play area, an award-winning restored mill wheel and a lovely riverside terrace.

The town of Glossop has a good selection of shops and pubs as well as a weekly market to enjoy.

There is an 18-hole golf course with a pay per play scheme, and the spa town of Buxton which is just a short drive away, offers a lovely day out and the chance to explore its majestic gardens and architecture.
