    “The Croft is exceptionally good value - very spacious, comfortingly clean, well-equipped and with plenty of useful extras in the kitchen and bathroom.”

    It's nicely situated in a pleasant village, with easy access to cycling and walking trails and a good pub 10 minutes' walk away. We only used the car to travel to the next village to get a mobile signal.

    It's nicely situated in a pleasant village, with easy access to cycling and walking trails and a good pub 10 minutes' walk away. We only used the car to travel to the next village to get a mobile signal. We aim to return - but it's evident from the Visitors' Book that there will be competition from the Croft's loyal following.

The property

An immaculate, detached, limestone built cottage, offering single-storey accommodation in the centre of the village of Biggin in the Peak District, surrounded by beautiful countryside.

The cottage is tastefully decorated throughout and provides spacious living areas to relax in, as you plan your activities for the days ahead.

This property may be suitable for those with limited mobility, with a superb, large bathroom which benefits from a walk-in shower area and underfloor heating.

The spacious, light and airy lounge boasts feature windows with views over the garden and the countryside beyond; the beautiful furnishings include two, two seater leather sofas and armchairs.

Outside is a third of an acre of enclosed garden to enjoy, with a south-facing sheltered patio with furniture and a BBQ, perfect for enjoying an evening meal or drink on a summer’s evening.

The tiny village of Biggin is situated on the edge of the Dove Valley, meaning there are wonderful walks from the doorstep and cycling trails directly accessible from the village, while the lovely village church and pub allow you to soak up the local Derbyshire atmosphere.

Explore the Peak District National Park and Dovedale, enjoy walking and cycling on the Tissington or High Peak Trail, or why not catch a bus in the village and spend a day visiting the market towns of Ashbourne, Buxton or Bakewell?

With Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and the spectacular Neo-classical Kedleston Hall to discover, together with the popular Alton Towers also within easy reach, you'll want to return to this Peak District cottage time and again!

About the location


Ashbourne 10 miles; Buxton 12 miles.

The lovely, small rural village of Biggin is situated perfectly for exploring the Dove and Manifold valleys within the Peak District National Park. The village was founded in the 13th century and is a scattered stone-built village with a church, a lovely pub serving good food and Biggin Hall Restaurant. Biggin is close to a national nature reserve, the wonderful National Trust owned Dovedale and the Tissington Trail, with excellent access for all for walking and cycling. The well known village of Hartington is close by, offering a wider selection of shops and amenities, including the world famous cheese shop selling the delicious Dovedale Blue. The whole area is a paradise for walking, cycling and horse riding. Buxton with its famous opera house and spa water has an array of shops and bars and is just a 20 minute drive away, while the antique searcher’s paradise of Ashbourne is also an easy drive away in the opposite direction. Visit Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall, or take a trip to Alton Towers for a fun-filled day out. Carsington Water a 30 minute drive away offers walking, cycle hire, birwatching and watersports. Biggin is perfectly placed for exploring the whole Peak District.
