“The Beeches was a great home away from home for a week and we really looked forward to returning to the cottage after a day exploring the Derbyshire Dales.”
The cottage was equipped to a high standard in terms of equipment and just some of the small touches made by Jane (such as a box of Maltesers on arrival) just added to the overall impression. The Beeches felt lived in and a home and on a couple of days when the weather was at its worst we were quite happy as a family of 4 watching TV, reading or just relaxing. whilst our SatNAV didn't take us to the precise location, the detailed description and directions got us safely there. ...

This is a lovely modern detached dormer bungalow next to a working dairy farm and surrounded by beautiful countryside near the village of Grangemill.
The Beeches is tastefully finished throughout making it perfect for a group of friends or family to enjoy this lovely area of Derbyshire.
The two double bedrooms are on the ground floor with a bathroom next door, making it suitable for a member of the group who is less mobile.
The twin bedroom is on the first floor and benefits from an en-suite shower room as well as lovely views across the farm and surrounding countryside.
The modern kitchen has everything you need and a very useful breakfast bar and stools ideal for feeding little ones (and big ones for that matter).
There’s a really cosy sitting room with a lovely glowing woodburning stove and a large dining table perfect for a banquet.
From here patio widows open out to the large enclosed garden which wraps around the cottage so there’s always a chance to catch the sun wherever you are.
There’s a porch for hanging kit and boots or drying off Fido and there’s also a secure shed if you wish to take bikes with you.
It’s a perfect place to chill out, however there is loads of choice to make your stay action packed with plenty of walks including the High Peak Trail and the historic Minninglow planting, just a short hop from the property.
