    “A beautiful location, with a cottage that's spacious, comfortable and very well equipped.”

    Being on a working dairy farm was nice, plus the fresh milk deliveries were a very much enjoyed bonus too! We were treated to a lamb being born on Christmas Day in the field directly in front of the cottage and that's not something I'll forget in a hurry. The only slight issue we had in the cottage was with the Wi-Fi - it's very slow (we measured 0.2Mbps at best) and usable for only basic messaging and emails.

    Being on a working dairy farm was nice, plus the fresh milk deliveries were a very much enjoyed bonus too! We were treated to a lamb being born on Christmas Day in the field directly in front of the cottage and that's not something I'll forget in a hurry. The only slight issue we had in the cottage was with the Wi-Fi - it's very slow (we measured 0.2Mbps at best) and usable for only basic messaging and emails. Web browsing is pretty slow and streaming of any kind is a no-go so perhaps those with teenagers looking to hammer the Wi-Fi on YouTube, Netflix and the like, should bear this in mind but otherwise Croft House is a delightful place to stay and I would highly recommend it. The location is ideal for exploring the Peak District, 10 mins by road from Ashbourne, and only about 30 mins or so from places like Derby, Leek, Buxton and Matlock. The cottage is very handy for picking up the Tissington Trail too; a must for anyone who likes getting out on two feet or wheels! Tissington itself can be reached in about 30-35 minutes on foot from the cottage via the trail and is a lovely village to wander around, checking out the wells and enjoying the quaint-ness of the place. There's a great little butcher's shop hidden in the village plus a couple of places to grab free-range eggs, and friendly local cats if you like feline friends! My thanks to the owners and for the free fresh milk!

    We are glad you enjoyed your stay over Christmas, and that you appreciated the fresh milk delivery. The internet is the only one we can get for the area, unfortunately the broadband we have can not support streaming. This is due to the location. However, you will be able to browse the internet with too much of a problem. The area does get 4G reception which you will be able to use for streaming - Sykes owner relations

The property

Tissington 1.5 miles.

This delightful detached cottage near Tissington is located on the owner’s working dairy farm with stunning views over the Tissington Trail and beyond.

Entry is directly into the kitchen with sociable dining space, where you’ll find plenty of room to cater for your party whilst gazing across the surrounding scenery!

With the accommodation mainly over the ground floor, to the left of the kitchen is a small utility room with traditional pantry cupboard and stairs accessing the pretty twin bedroom.

The sitting room continues from the kitchen, offering a lovely large and contemporary space with woodburning stove, the ideal accompaniment on cooler evening.

The spacious hallway then leads to a master king-size double bedroom and a shower room, with two steps up to the double bedroom.

Outside, the front patio is perfectly placed to enjoy the sights and sounds of the surrounding countryside whilst having your morning cup of tea and planning your day, and a small lawned area with a very low wall separates the fields beyond.

There are wonderful walking and cycling opportunities, with a footpath running right past the doorstep, heading either towards the village of Tissington (just 15 minutes' walk away), or with direct access onto the Tissington Trail, via a traffic-free track.

The village of Tissington is a real step back in time, complete with Tissington Hall, neat village greens and a duck pond.

Attractive Dovedale is just a short drive away, and a wealth of market towns, pretty villages, historic houses and spectacular scenery are all within easy reach.

If you’re seeking a traditional, rural retreat in the Peak District National Park, Croft House is a perfect choice.

About the location

TISSINGTON

Bradbourne 2.6 miles; Ashbourne 5 miles; Chatsworth House 17.6 miles

Tissington is a beautiful little village in the Peak District National Park. Famous for its well dressings, Tissington invites you to come along and soak up the atmosphere of this well-managed estate village with its duck pond, quaint cottages, church, tea rooms and impressive old hall. It's a very pretty village and a perfect place from which to enjoy the many sights of the Peak District. A fabulous area for outdoor pursuits, the Tissington Trail cycle path is located close by, little over a mile to the east of the village. Dovedale, one of England's photographed beauty spots with its iconic stepping stones, is close by and must not be missed! There are many varied walks, climbing opportunities and cycle routes in the area, and this is also an ideal base for days out at Alton Towers, impressive Chatsworth House, or enjoying the watersports at Carsington Water. The nearby market town of Ashbourne, once a fashionable social centre of the 18th century, boasts an eccentric street plan, with charming cobbled alleyways littered with old market stalls and welcoming coaching inns. Many fine Georgian buildings remain, hosting a good selection of restaurants, wine bars and interesting antique shops.
