This delightful, stone-built terraced cottage in the picturesque village of Monyash is perfect for a family or a group of friends wanting to enjoy their stay, right in the very heart of the stunningly beautiful, Peak District National Park.
The cottage is beautifully finished with a clever mix of traditional and contemporary features such as the impressive, original stone fireplace and modern wood flooring.
Quality furniture and soft furnishings give this lovely place a real “boutique” feel.
Two of the light and spacious bedrooms have stunning uninterrupted views to the rolling hills and dales.
The modern, high spec kitchen/diner is a great place for a power-up breakfast at the start of the day’s activities and the comfortable sitting room with soft sofas and mesmerising woodburning stove is a fantastic place to relax at the end of it.
If you’ve still got some energy left, there’s a good sized level lawn for children to run around on and there’s a lovely gravelled area with garden furniture, ideal for dining alfresco in this sun trap while you look out over the rolling fields and animals.
Your party might be interrupted however by the local horses as they often pop their heads over a neighbouring wall to say hello.
Walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers couldn’t be better placed with trails and routes just a stone’s throw from the door, such as the Limestone Way and Lathkill Dale.
And if all of that sounds simply too exhausting, a potter through Bakewell or a meander around Chatsworth House are other options 5 and 10 miles away.
This is a beautiful place, not to be missed in any season.
About the location
Bakewell 4.5 miles; Buxton 8 miles.
Monyash is a charming Derbyshire village built around the village green in the heart of the Peak District National Park, boasting a 17th century village pub which serves good food. The attractive market town of Bakewell is just under 5 miles away and offers visitors a good selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as frequent local farmers' markets. Bakewell is situated within the Peak District National Park and is ideally placed for exploring this beautiful region. Both the rugged Dark Peak and the softer limestone White Peak are within easy reach, and Alton Towers, Britain's premier theme park, is only a short drive away. There are many stately homes to visit including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall to mention just a few, while the impressive caverns in nearby Castleton and Little John's burial place in Hathersage are also well worth a visit. It is beautiful walking country with several of the Peak District's famous dales close by including Dovedale, Millers Dale, Monsal Dale and the stunning Lathkill Dale. The Tissington Trail is also nearby.
