  • "A bijou cottage nestled behind the old school."

    We loved it. In a very quiet village – the highest in England, and 2 mins walk from the highest village pub in England. Small but perfectly formed and everything was clean and well-provided. The seating area is a sun trap and great for relaxing. Loads of parking and midway between Buxton and Leek. Dog friendly, including the pub. Next to the church with lovely views over the valley. Good Wi-Fi (40Mbps).

  • "The Netty is very well equipped, and a good bolt hole for exploring the surrounding area."

    It is full of old nick nacks.. we found the place quite cold, even though the little heater is on all day and night. The mattress needs changing as the springs are coming through.. The lady owner hospitality left us feeling uncomfortable at times and we felt a nuisance when we asked for anything. We would suggest adding milk to the welcome pack as there are no shops nearby, and after a long drive the last thing you want to do is go out again to try to find a shop..

    Thank you for your comments. Firstly, I am really glad to hear that you found the property well-equipped and in a good location. I can only assume that the "nick nacks" are the casserole dishes, biscuit jar, cake stand etc, as there aren't any other items on display. I am sorry to hear that you found the property cold at times, however there is a log effect electric fire for use on cool evenings. On inspection I noticed that it had been unplugged and the panel heater had also been switched off. The mattress is relatively new and it also has a mattress topper. I imagine what you could feel was possibly the elements running through the electric blanket. I have removed the electric blanket as it is now almost summer. The only thing I recall being asked during your stay was where to put your recycling and I directed you to the recycling container. The welcome booklet explains these things in detail. Had you asked about milk, I would gladly have given you some. I normally leave milk in the fridge for guests' arrival but I'm afraid there must have been an oversight on this occasion. I am always happy to help with any concerns that may arise, and would like to assure any future guests that they can always approach me during their stay if there is anything they would like me to put right. Thank you once again for your feedback. Property Owner

The property

Buxton 5 miles.

Located in the small village of Quarnford, near both Buxton and Leek lies this delightful single-storey cottage, The Netty.

Ideal for a couple's getaway, the property sleeps two people, providing an intimate base suitable for a Peak District adventure.

This delightful dwelling has ample parking to the left of the property and an enclosed private patio which is the perfect place to watch the sunrise/sunset with views down the Manifold Valley.

Heading through the double patio doors you'll reach the welcoming sitting room, directly leading into the open-plan kitchen/diner, providing all amenities you could need to cook up a romantic meal for two.

Moving through to the ground-floor twin bedroom and en-suite, the views continue, offering the chance to relax and unwind before another day of sightseeing.

With restaurants and a local pub within walking distance of the cottage, you'll also find a wealth of convenience stores and supermarkets within four miles of the village, where you can stock up on key essentials for your stay.

Situated within the Peak District National Park, there are plenty of walking routes and trails for avid walkers, with the chance to hike up The Roaches or take in the views of Lud's Church and the Hanging Stone.

For an interactive activity, you'll have plenty of options to choose from, including the Buxton Visitor Centre and Crescent Heritage Experiences, offering artistic and cultural events, Poole's Cavern & Buxton Country Park with guided tours of its two-million years of heritage, or sail across the Rudyard Lake.

For a fun-filled day beyond the local area, all accessible by car, head over for an exhilarating visit to Alton Towers, visit Avro Heritage Museum for an educational trip, or embark on a historical experience, taking in the remains of Magpie Mine, originating from 1740.

With plenty of local attractions, scenic views, and tourist hotspots to visit in the area, choose The Netty as your Buxton home from home.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

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.
