    “Great for walkers”
    The cottage was spotlessly clean and warm. Parking was easy and the swimming pool was a real bonus. The view is fantastic, the location is quiet and the footpath is convenient! There are a few aspects we weren't aware of until we arrived which another party might wish to consider before booking. Not to put you off because it's a lovely cottage but if you are over 6', the beds will be too short for you. One room has no wardrobe at all and there are only 6 soft chairs in the lounge. Bring ...
    The cottage was spotlessly clean and warm. Parking was easy and the swimming pool was a real bonus. The view is fantastic, the location is quiet and the footpath is convenient! There are a few aspects we weren't aware of until we arrived which another party might wish to consider before booking. Not to put you off because it's a lovely cottage but if you are over 6', the beds will be too short for you. One room has no wardrobe at all and there are only 6 soft chairs in the lounge. Bring earplugs; the cottage is semi detached and one bedroom simply has a door between the two cottages, so the noise travels. Also, the cottage is much easier to find if find you arrive in the daylight and be sure to print off the owner's instructions for the last part of your journey.

Twitchill Farm Holiday Cottages

This group of two charming stone-built cottages are in the extensive grounds of the owner’s working farm, on the outskirts of the lovely Peak District towns of Hope and Castleton, with breathtaking views across the stunning Hope Valley. With private use of a large heated indoor swimming pool, the cottages offer the perfect setting for multiple family holidays or large groups. They are warm and cosy and decorated to traditional tastes. The bedrooms are comfortable and the open plan living areas with kitchen, dining area and sitting areas are a great place for a lively get together. The two cottages can be taken individually or they can be opened out as one through a link door on the top floor. There are small patio areas at the front of the cottages, where you can sit and watch the sun dip over the Shivering Mountain, Mam Tor; and to the rear of the cottages there are decked areas for group alfresco dining with large tables under the shelter of gazebos. The extensive lawn is the ideal place to kick a ball or throw a frisbee, assuming you still have the energy after a splash around in the heated indoor pool which has its own changing and showering facilities and is for the exclusive use of the cottages. As tempting as it might be to spend your entire break here, there is an exhaustive choice of things to do in and around the area. How about exploring a castle, take a boat trip 450m underground or delve into a deep cavern called The Devil’s Arse! With all of this within two miles of your front door, you won’t have to venture far to discover an amazing array of attractions in this wonderful area.

About the location

HOPE

Castleton 1.5 miles; Tideswell 6 miles.

The pretty Peak District village of Hope lies in the heart of the Hope Valley, and on the doorstep of some great walking country. Set amongst the beautiful rolling hills of the Peak District National Park, the village boasts some village pubs which serve food, a general store, some very interesting shops and galleries to explore, and a railway station. Hope is perfectly situated for either an action-packed break full of caving, climbing, and great walks from the doorstep, or a quiet countryside break in this lovely part of the Peaks. The Winnats Pass cuts a course through superb scenery just a couple of miles away in Castleton, and is a delight for walkers, cyclists and motorists alike. Nearby are the pretty villages of Edale, the start of the Pennine Way, Castleton and Hathersage with its seasonal outdoor swimming pool, while horse riding and the wonderful Castleton Caves are all available within 3 miles. Enjoy a day out at Alton Towers or visit the impressive Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall. Also within easy reach are Buxton, Matlock Bath and Carsington Water, while further afield are the market towns of Ashbourne and Leek.
