  • Mr Hampton

    “The only minor niggle was the lack of decent WiFi.”

    The router in the actual cottage didn't work, so we had to log onto the owner's next door, which meant a very weak signal. This wouldn't normally be a major problem (we were on holiday after all) But, bear in mind that there is also zero network coverage in the area, so we were a little more cut off than we would have liked. However, we had a wonderful stay, and would happily return one day.

The property

This delightfully-presented, semi-detached cottage sits next to the owner’s home, in the pretty little village of Kniveton, on the edge of the Peak District National Park.

Dating back over 300 years, this stone cottage was originally the village bakery and still features the original stone hearth.

Ideal for a family or group of friends, the cottage is beautifully furnished making a very comfortable home-from-home.

The bedrooms and bathroom are spacious and decorated to a high standard, and the sitting room with contemporary wood flooring and luxurious sofas is a great place to sit and chat or snuggle up for a movie.

The farmhouse-style kitchen/diner is great for a meal while discussing your plans, which could be anything from shopping in the lovely market town of Ashbourne, to kayaking on the nearby beautiful Carsington Water.

Outside, there’s a real sun trap of a tiered garden, great for alfresco dining, and an excellent people watching platform!

It’s an area where you are spoilt for choice for things to see and do, though you might just venture as far as the village pub across the road.

Cyclists who are drawn to this veritable biker’s Mecca will be pleased to note that there is a lockable shed to store your trusty machine.

So whether you enjoy watching birdlife from the shores of a lake, sampling real ales and artisan produce or action and adventure, there’s always something for you at this lovely cottage retreat.

About the location

KNIVETON

Ashbourne 3 miles; Carsington 2 miles.

Steeped in history and situated at the southern end of the Peak District, the lovely village of Kniveton sits in a deep hollow on the slope of Madge Hill, offering home to a scattering of traditional stone cottages, a village pub and a delightful old church built in the 13th century. Surrounded by lovely rolling countryside and situated close to the excellent watersport facilities at Carsington Water, this great location provides the ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area. Nearby Ashbourne is the perfect example of an English market town, boasting an eccentric street plan, narrow, cobbled alleys, old market stalls, many fine coaching inns and a good selection of restaurants, whilst being regarded as something of a haven for antique hunters. For those who prefer outdoor pursuits, the Dove and Manifold Valleys are close by offering good walking and cycling, whilst Alton Towers is just a 30 minute drive away!
