  • “Lovely warm and cosy cottage with ...”
    Lovely warm and cosy cottage with some great walks nearby. That said I think it should be advertised as a 6+2 cottage rather than a proper 8 person. The upstairs double bedroom is a 'bolt on' to the lounge without wardrobe or cupboard space and the bathroom is downstairs. Admitted there is a utility room with a toilet in on the same floor and for a long weekend its OK but not ideal if you were staying longer. Overall though very nice and would visit again.

The property

This is a lovely barn conversion, located in Quarnford and Flash, the highest village in Britain, in the Peak District.

Spacious throughout to provide a welcoming holiday home for a group of friends, or large family, this comfortable cottage is perfect for enjoying the stunning countryside in this part of the Peak District.

The upside down configured accommodation features a traditional wood floor creating warmth and character throughout.

The open living area of the cottage is positioned on the first floor, so you can take advantage of the lovely views over the beautiful local church and countryside this area has to offer.

The well-equipped kitchen is perfect for your culinary needs, with a large dining area that makes a great place for entertaining with family or friends, while the cosy sitting room and double bedroom with separate cloakroom means you can always escape to a quiet spot.

The ground floor boasts three tastefully decorated bedrooms, two featuring an en-suite shower room.

There’s also a modern fitted bathroom complete with shower and hand-held shower and a separate bath to enjoy a relaxing soak.

From the ground floor you enter a private enclosed courtyard, which is ideal for cleaning off boots or muddy paws!

Outside, a large lockable garage provides excellent secure bike storage and a garden with decking and lawned seating area makes a perfect spot for enjoying those sunny evenings.

This rural location of Quarnford is a village in the Staffordshire Moorlands between Buxton and Leek in the Peak District and is situated in some of the most picturesque and unspoilt areas of the English countryside.

There is a nearby pub and pony trekking is available from Northfield Farm, for wild moorland treks.

The area is also notable for the weirdly shaped outcrops of gritstone and you can discover these on the many walks this magnificent area has to offer.

The lovely market town of Buxton is nearby and for the thrill seekers, Alton Towers is just a short drive away.

This peaceful, tranquil setting is a great base to enjoy time together in a lovely holiday accommodation, all year around.
