  • "Such a lovely, comfortable cottage."

    Everything needed for a good holiday was there - including sunshine when required! The slow cooker was a very welcome bonus especially as there are some excellent butchers in the area. Also the kindness and understanding in my difficult circumstances was really appreciated. Keepers is a special place.

    The cottage is as warm, welcoming and comfortable as ever and the lovely extras provided by Mary were much appreciated. We loved the fantastic new shower room, which is a valuable addition if you have extra family members staying. Looking forward to our next visit.

    The cottage is spacious, and comfortable, with plenty of room for two families and the situation perfect, only minutes away from local tourist spots by car, but with fantastic walks from the door .The fact that my mother lived here as a child and that it is still a working farm made it all the more special. We can't wait to return and I am sure that this was only the first of many visits to come. Thank you Mary, for your hospitality and we hope to see you again soon.

    It is in a lovely position with walks from the door and a working farm all around. It is so handy for tours further into the Peak District. Wynatt’s Pass and the Hope valley are within easy reach. The town is only a mile away and the individual shops are well worth a visit. The log stove makes for cosy evenings indoors. Many thanks!

    Cottage was very spacious, warm & well-equipped. Was very comfortable there, which was good as my son was ill so we had to take it in turns to look after him. It was testament to the size & comfort of the cottage, that we could stay there without feeling on top of each other. Loved the peaceful location. Close to the shops in Chapel-en-le Frith & also to other Peak District favourites of Buxton & Castleton. No public transport to Castleton due to the windy roads leading in, so be prepared to drive or if feeling brave, walk.

    The house is lovely, well maintained and comfortable, nice and warm on a cold evening with the woodburner fired up. We would be happy to return, and from the guest book it seems that there are a number of guests who come back year after year. The cottage is next to a working farm run by the owners - we found them very friendly and helpful. We had the joy of watching the newborn lambs in the field next-door. As per the description, there is only one bathroom and no dishwasher - this might be a consideration for some. Parking next to the cottage is one car only, though there might be possibilities elsewhere on the farm.

The property

Keepers Cottage is a detached, situated on a working farm.

Located one mile from Chapel-en-le-Frith, this cottage offers lovely views over natural landscape and boasts a delightful out-building.

Very much a country cottage, there are plenty of walking opportunities right on your doorstep, making this retreat perfect for a group of travellers or a family looking to get away from it all.

You will feel the sense of charm upon arrival, and this continues as you wander inside to the open-plan lounge.

Certainly a home-away-from-home; hours can be spent socialising with your loved ones as you prepare those appetising meals at the kitchen/diner.

The traditional seating area is your night time escape for a cosy hour or two in front of the woodburner watching your favourite shows.

For a change of scenery or a social gathering, the second sitting room is equally as comfortable, tied together with a gas fire and lovely décor.

The next floor houses two double bedrooms and a twin, all complete to a standard of quality, with countryside views that you can wake up to every day that goes by.

The same level of character and charm follows you from the ground floor up, and a family bathroom completes the accommodation.

Outside there is plenty of space to unwind, with a courtyard, patio and a wonderful lawn area to admire the countryside sunsets and beyond.

Chapel-en-le-Frith is known as the Capital of the Peaks, with its cobbled market place and historic old stocks.

A short drive away are an abundance of attractions including the Blue John Cavern and the castle at Castleton, Visit the nearby stately homes such as Chatsworth House and Lyme Hall.

A memorable base to return to whatever the season.

About the location


Combs 2.1 miles; Chinley 2.2 miles; Hayfield 4.4 miles; Castleton 6.4 miles; Buxton 6.4 miles.

Chapel-en-le-Frith is known as the Capital of the Peak, with its cobbled market place and historic old stocks and Eccles Pike, ‘pike’ meaning pointed hill; a gritstone hill, pink in colour at the summit which boasts far reaching 360 degree views. Just seven miles away lies the popular spa town of Buxton, famous not only for its therapeutic spring water, but also for its Pavillion Gardens and splendid Victorian Opera House, and which boasts a variety of shows, attracting people from all over the world. A short drive away are an abundance of attractions including stately homes such as Chatsworth House and Lyme Hall. The Goyt Valley and Castleton famous for its caverns; Blue John, Speedwell and the Devils Arse! Chinley is a lovely little village nestled in a wonderful rural setting, on the western edge of the Peak District National Park. Popular with walkers, who are attracted by its walks over the dramatic Cracken Edge, linking to Chinley Churn, Mount Famine, South Head and further to Kinder Scout, Edale and the Pennine Way. Visitors are well-catered for with the village’s selection of pubs offering award winning Ales, cafes and restaurants. The quiet village of Combs has a country pub, which prides itself on quality ingredients, the perfect place to enjoy a meal after walking Combs Moss and Castle Naze. The delightful High Peak village of Hayfield is situated in a wonderful rural setting on the north western edge of the Peak District National Park. It’s a peaceful little village, popular with walkers who are attracted by its close proximity to Kinder Scout. Serious walkers head east out of the village, up and over the green foothills to the russet expanse of the Kinder Plateau, Pennine Way and Snake Path, whilst families (and those who enjoy more gentle rambles) head west along the beautiful Sett Valley Trail towards New Mills. Edale – an alternative start of the Pennine Way - is only a few miles away
