  • “Beautifully appointed cottage; a lovely 'home from home' for our week-long stay.”

    Very clean and well decorated. ...

    Very clean and well decorated. The only very minor observation was a lack of larder/cupboard space in the kitchen; by no means a complaint. The additional shower room was highly appreciated. This is a 'big plus' for anyone who struggles to get in/out of a bath. The village is small, quaint, very friendly and geographically well-positioned to reach the sights and sounds of the Peak District. The two local pubs were both very welcoming and served good food. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely like to return in the future; maybe with our Scottish Terrier.

The property

Gritstone Cottage is a lovely semi-detached, stone-built property located amidst the pleasant village of Great Longstone.

The accommodation exudes charming characteristics, with beautiful modern furnishings throughout, and is a great place to bring the kids and get lost in luscious countryside in one of the most beautiful parts of Derbyshire.

The cottage layout is over two floors, with a ground floor shower room as well as the upstairs family bathroom, so no need to wait in line in the morning to use the facilities.

Spend some quality time together in the cosy sitting/dining room and listen to the crackling sounds of the woodburner in the background.

You will find all of the utensils you need to cook up the perfect family meal in the well-appointed modern kitchen.

Head up and out into the secluded, verdant garden area and look out over delightful rooftop scenery, enjoying those late summer nights while the kids play on the lawn.

There are some excellent routes for walkers and cyclists in the local area as well as trail and fell running to enjoy Why not stretch your legs and stroll along to the famous viewpoint at Monsal Head or follow the Monsal Trail?

There are many paths which will lead you to superb panoramic views.

With a couple of pubs only on the doorstep at Great Longstone, you won't be stuck for somewhere to enjoy a refreshing beverage or two.

If you fancy something sweet, Bakewell is only two miles away, home of the famous Bakewell tart.

This family-friendly location in its idyllic cottage setting is just what is needed for the perfect holiday.

About the location


Chatsworth 4 miles; Matlock 8 miles; Buxton 12 miles.

An attractive little market town retaining a delightful rural atmosphere and offering a good selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as local farmers’ markets. There is an old 17th Century market hall in the town centre and a modern leisure centre with swimming pool nearby. Bakewell is situated within the Peak District National Park and is ideally placed for exploring this beautiful region. Both the rugged Dark Peak and the softer limestone White Peak are within easy reach, and Alton Towers, Britain’s premier theme park, is only a short drive away. There are many stately homes to visit including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall to mention just a few, while the impressive caverns in nearby Castleton and Little John’s burial place in Hathersage are also well worth a visit. Take a trip to Buxton and visit the impressive Edwardian Opera House, designed by Frank Matcham, who also designed the London Palladium.
