  • Lovely cottage for a romantic break away.

    “Lovely nature surrounding the fields with lots to take photographs off. Bicycle track 200 m from the property, public right of way through the fields which is lovely to have a walk and watch the sheep and cows. So much to do around the area we spent a week here And run out of time to do everything we wanted to.

And I am fussy where I stay so this is an honest review.”

Hartington 3.7 miles.

Tucked away within splendid Peak District National Park is this attractive, single-storey barn conversion.

Shepherds Retreat is a chocolate box property welcoming couples looking to break away from normal life and place themselves in the heart of Derbyshire’s fine countryside.

Boasting an open-plan aspect and beautiful exposed crick barn beams, this cottage is full of character and makes a lovely base to return to each evening.

Spend your down time beside the woodburning stove, resting your legs after a day of rambling, or take to the amply-equipped kitchen to prepare a hearty feast, offering all the essential appliances, crockery and cooking utensils needed for a short break.

Sit at the dining table and toast to a charming getaway with your loved one, or perhaps the sound of alfresco dining on a warm summer evening is more to your taste?

Freshen up within the walk-in shower in the shower room before making yourself at home within the double bedroom, with excellent solid oak furniture to make use of.

However you decide to spend your holiday, Shepherds Retreat is a great base for exploring the whole of the Peak District.

About the location

HARTINGTON

Bakewell 10 miles; Buxton 10 miles.

Hartington, situated in the Dove Valley in the Peak District National Park, was an important market centre in the Middle Ages, having been granted a market charter in 1203. Today the ever-popular village boasts lovely tea rooms, a cheese shop, old curiosity shops, traditional pubs and a splendid market square where the stone-carved village pump, once an important source of water for the villagers, still stands on the green. The local bars stock local ales brewed at the Leatherbritches Brewery in Fenny Bentley and Whim Ales in Hartington itself. The former Hartington railway station, about a mile and half from the village itself, is now a picnic area and the converted track is known as the Tissington Trail, popular with both walkers and cyclists. Hartington is also a good starting point for walking along Beresford Dale, a beautiful place with its curiously formed cliffs and rocks. Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are both within a 20 minute drive, and Alton Towers is within easy reach.
