  • "Fabulous cottage in a great village location."

    Very comfortable, clean and well equipped. Great friendly pub just across the village green and a lovely shop just along the road.

  • "This was a lovely cosy cottage for two, nicely presented, throughly clean throughout, everything you would need for your self catering holiday, nice little touches on our arrival of a bottle of wine, half a dozen eggs & some rather nice chocolate cookies!"

    ! The bed/bed linen is to die for! The cottage is ideally located for your holiday in Derbyshire, in the lovely little village of Litton. Litton has a great pub just across the green from the cottage, which serves great food & guest beers! What's not to like! We would highly recommend this cottage for a holiday in Derbyshire. We WILL be back!

    Clean, comfortable and has everything we needed. Great situation, with handy shop and pub. Parking on the road just outside, and so much do do in the area (including lots of geocaches!) Tissington Well Dressing a highlight too. Already planning a probable return!

    We enjoyed our stay. Lovely dual aspect bedroom, quiet and peaceful. Parking outside the door. Kitchen well equipped but we'd like a 'proper' chopping board. Very generous goodies left for us. Absolutely fabulous. Loved it.

  • "The cottage was perfect for a relaxing Autumn week in The Peaks."

    It was very comfortable, cosy and well appointed. The close proximity to a village shop and the pub was a major consideration when choosing where to book. We would like to point out that the area behind the house has a table and chairs for outside eating, but the yard allows access to another property and therefore is not private. We were not at all concerned as we were not visiting in the warm months but this may be useful to those who enjoy sitting out. Outside the front door there is however another bistro table and chairs which gives a lovely view of the village green. I definitely would love to return to the cottage.

  • "What a fabulous property!"

    Lovely location in the centre of the village. Facing the village green. The cottage has all the things a holiday cottage sometimes lacks- sharp kitchen knives, a colander etc. Everything was really clean and worked beautifully. The owners have been very thoughtful about providing all you might need - pegs for washing etc. Would heartily recommend.

  • "I cannot recommend Church View Cottage too highly."

    It is extremely well appointed and equipped, and the attention to details and provision of small necessities makes it clear that it is run by people who really care that you have a successful, comfortable and enjoyable holiday. Thanks Jeanne.

  • "This is a lovely cottage, very well appointed and spotlessly clean."

    Its village location was great for having local amenities within walking distance whilst having beautiful countryside on the doorstep. The only downside for us was the lack of private outdoor space. The rear courtyard appeared to have a permitted access across it for people living in properities at the back of the cottage. Whislt this wasn't a problem for us on this holiday it would be a consideration if we were looking to book during the summer months.

  • "This is a lovely cottage and beautifully furnished."

    It has everything you may need for your stay. We were dissapointed though that on web site it states off road parking. This is not the case. Yes it is off the main road but parking is on a slip road with a few other cottages. Therefore it is first come gets a space which we only got once. We have only booked places with proper off road or an allocated space.There is a carpark opposite for the school which a lot of people use but it gets very busy with walkers and pub goers etc. In summer it would be difficult to park. We also did not see a washing machine as stated, though didn't bother us but might some people. Due to the weather and Covid restrictions the owners pub opposite was only open Sunday which was a shame.

    The washing machine is in the shed and we would have been only too happy to tell you this if we had known you couldn't find it, we were available every day for any queries you may have had, and we're sorry we weren't given the opportunity to help you on this occasion. The parking is off the main road and is in a secure dedicated road for the row of properties adjacent to the cottage and there is further parking available across the village green. Property Owner

The property

Set in the glorious countryside of the Peak District National Park in the quaint village of Litton is this superbly-appointed accommodation, Church View Cottage.

This romantic retreat is perfectly placed for a couple seeking a tranquil retreat to an area steeped in rolling countryside and bustling market towns.

Relax into your evening within the elegantly-presented sitting/dining room, where a plush sofa awaits to be curled into with a good book in hand or flick on the 3D TV to while away a couple of hours during a rainy day or a relaxing evening in with the warmth of the gas fire offering a sense of comfort.

Beyond here is the stylish kitchen area, housing quality amenities to assist you while you cater a delicious evening meal for you and your partner to enjoy at the dining table.

Venture up the staircase to catch your rest within the bedroom, boasting a plush king-size bedroom, ample storage space, a TV and an en-suite bathroom, complete with a bath and a walk-in shower, giving you the option of how best to prepare for your day.

During the summer months, the rear courtyard offers an alternative dining spot, while the quaint front terrace is perfect for enjoying your morning coffee whilst watching the world go by.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, a short stroll across the village green will bring you to the award-winning countryside delight of The Red Lion Inn, with a delicious dining menu with something to suit all palettes and dietary requirements.

The village also plays host to a small village shop, where you can pick up any essentials or a fresh loaf of bread to enjoy back at Church View Cottage at breakfast.

Just up the road is Tideswell, boasting an outstanding church and home to the “Cathedral of the Peak”, there’s plenty of architectural wonder to explore here, as well as a butcher, baker and pharmacy ideal for all of your last-minute amenities, and a café and restaurant serving tasty treats.

Many lovely walks start and end at Church View Cottage which is located by the Monsal Trail, which is a traffic free route through some of the Peak District's most spectacular limestone dales and is ideal for cyclists.

If you’re seeking historical excitement and even more impressive splendours, the gems of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall can be found within easy reach, as well as both Buxton and Bakewell making for a great day out for all tastes.

Church View Cottage is a marvellous base from which to explore the Peak District National Park.
