  • “Lovely cottage in a great location.”

    - Mr Montgomery, September 2021

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.
