The property

A detached Victorian cottage wrapped in breath-taking countryside, situated in the rural heights of Tintwistle.

The sense of freedom of open views make an excellent retreat for families or friends.Take a second to soak in the surroundings, and then enter through the lovely doorway.

An open plan kitchen and dining area boasts character, and introduces a warming country theme.

The spacious layout is enhanced by a woodburner which rests to the side for a cosy place to dine out with your family.

Sitting off from this, a utility room holds extra essentials for your convenience, and is neighboured by a downstairs cloakroom.

Follow the layout round, and you will come to a double bedroom with a strip of colour and pretty furnishings, overlooking peaceful views.

Come night time, you will want to relax in the spacious sitting room hosting leather sofa's, a large woodburning stove and a selection of books, so that you can sit back and enjoy the calming atmosphere.

Take the stairs to a luxury bathroom containing a large corner bath, and an elegant walk-in shower.

Further round, a king-size double bedroom offers a serene escape, complimented by delicate pastel curtains.

Two twin bedrooms also lie on this floor, neatly presented, and matched with a purple tone.

Embracing a more neutral effect, a double bedroom is laced with light décor and elevated by even more enticing views.

Step outside to be uplifted by the natural scenery.

This secluded location is perfect for walking, fishing or mountain biking, or even barbecuing with your friends on a sunny day.

Why not take a stroll into the village of Tintwistle, or explore the town of Glossop providing a handful of shops, pubs and restaurants.

This is a delightful cottage for a carefree stay.

About the location


Glossop 2 miles.

The millstone grit village of Tintwistle, 2 miles from Glossop, often dubbed the "Gateway to the Peaks", is skirted on three sides by the Peak District National Park and is renowned for the moorlands of the Dark Peak. Accessed via the infamous Snake Pass, this most attractive area houses some fine 17th and 18th Century cottages. Bottoms Reservoir is in the centre of the village, providing the perfect setting for a leisurely stroll. Follow Doctor's Gate Roman road to Kinder Scout and Edale, the start of the Pennine Way, or the Snake Pass to Ladybower and Derwent Reservoirs, where the famous Dambusters Squadron practiced. The nearby bustling town of Glossop provides plentiful shops, pubs and restaurants together with a superb 18 hole golf course and is surrounded by some of the most magnificent Peak District scenery. With the pretty spa town of Buxton and the picturesque Hope Valley, home to Castleton Castle and Caves, both within easy reach, this is a wonderful location offering plenty to see and do.
