  • "Lovely, spacious cottage with pretty front garden which was bigger and more private than expected."

    Beautiful views from living room.and main bedroom, also very quiet. Well equipped cottage, everything you needed including freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. Welcome pack was generous, with wine, milk, eggs etc. The added benefit of an extra toilet downstairs was handy. Many thanks, we will return!

    We were welcomed by a bunch of daffodils, fresh eggs and milk plus lots of other thoughtful items, including poo bags for the dog! Loved the log burner especially as it was quite chilly. We are already taking about when we can return to Moorview

  • "3 Moorview was a lovely cottage, set in beautiful countryside with a lovely west facing garden ideal for afternoon tea."

    Very peaceful and the owner of the cottage, Brigette made us so welcome. She had kindly left us the essentials as well as chocolate biscuits, wine and fruit, even eggs from her own hens. Lovely starry skies, wonderful to be able to lay in bed with the curtains and windows wide open and look at the night sky. The cottage wasn't very far from any of the national park attractions although still very rural in a very small village. We will definitely go back and visit again.

  • "Lovely cottage with everything (and more!"

    ) that you could possibly need. Located close to Buxton which makes for an easy day trip, as well as 10 mins from various villages and trails like the Monsal Trail. We stayed for two nights but we wish we had booked a third as it was so lovely, quiet, serene and very well equipped! The cottage comes with all the homely comforts (cozy lounge, spacious kitchen, clean/tidy/VERY comfy bedrooms etc) - we were genuinely blown away by the property and the extra touches that made our stay so enjoyable. Will definitely be returning in the future!

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well equipped, with every little detail thought of. The kitchen had everything we needed with plenty of space to prepare meals.

The property

Overlooking rolling green hills in the heart of the Peak District, you can find 3 Moorview, an end-of-terrace stone cottage in the village of Flagg, not far from the bustling spa town of Buxton.

With its traditional front garden and classic look, this cottage is a lovely hideaway for friends or families, where you can really experience the beauty of the Peaks right on your doorstep.

The bright spacious boot room will benefit you well, especially if the weather has been wet, to provide you somewhere to kick off those muddy boots and hang up the soggy coats to dry, before getting toasty warm in the next room.

Get comfy on the sofas in front of the woodburning stove after a day of walking, and watch a favourite film on the TV to wind-down for the evening, while someone rustles up dinner in the open-plan kitchen and dining room, with its classic country style decor and modern appliances.

Heading upstairs will bring you to the three bedrooms, two king-size, and a twin, along with a bathroom containing a spacious walk-in shower to wake you up in the morning!

To the front of the property is a delightful enclosed garden, lined by stone walls and shrubbery with a lovely lawn space for children to play on in the summer months, with stunning views out to the rest of the surrounding countryside.

Flagg is a small farming village, and although there aren't any local amenities it is a great starting point for a Peak District adventure, located in the area also known as "The White Peak" being a thousand feet above sea level, it is surrounded by many wonderful paths and tracks, with the Limestone Way Walk passing straight through the village.

Being so close to the famous spa town, a visit to Buxton is definitely on the itinerary, with its superb Georgian architecture displayed in the form of the Buxton Crescent, The Pump Room, and the Buxton Opera House, and a must-see for all visitors where you can fill up your water bottles with the famous thermal waters from St Anne's Well!

With its fantastic location and idyllic surroundings, 3 Moorview is a great introduction to the wonders of the Peaks.

About the location


Tideswell 7 miles; Bakewell 12 miles; Matlock 21 miles.

It was the constant 28 degrees centigrade of the bubbling blue waters of Buxton's eight thermal springs that originally attracted the Romans to the town. However it was during the 18th and 19th centuries, under the patronage of successive Dukes of Devonshire, that the Palladian splendour of the Buxton of today was designed and built - including the magnificent semi-circular Crescent, The Great Stable, Hall Bank, The Square, The Pavilion Gardens and The Opera House. Today visitors continue to enjoy these magnificent buildings and gardens, as well as the Opera House's full programme and annual festivals of music and arts. There is good walking close by with rugged peaks to the north and gentle hills and dales to the south and a number of pretty towns and villages are dotted throughout including Bakewell, Ashford-in-the-Water, Castleton and Edale. The stunning properties of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are within easy driving distance and must be seen while visiting this area. A great base for exploring the Peak District.
