  • “Great Place, Perfect place for walking”
    This one bedroomed cottage was exactly what we were looking for, very cosy and warm, extremely good shower and comfortable bed. Very central for walking in the Dark Peak and somewhere we hope to stay in again! The owners showed us the facilities but then pretty much left us to it - very friendly but not interfering which is the perfect mix. ...
    This one bedroomed cottage was exactly what we were looking for, very cosy and warm, extremely good shower and comfortable bed. Very central for walking in the Dark Peak and somewhere we hope to stay in again! The owners showed us the facilities but then pretty much left us to it - very friendly but not interfering which is the perfect mix. This is a good place for a couple, the on street parking is pretty close, a short walk over a bridge. The cottage is in the owners back garden but is not overlooked and is very well maintained. TV if you want it and DVD player. Old Glossop is a lovely small community and we found the whole place very welcoming. There was snow on the ground but the cottage was still very warm and comfortable.

About the location

OLD GLOSSOP

Glossop 1 mile; Buxton 15 miles.

The millstone grit village of Old Glossop, often dubbed the “Gateway to the Peaks”, is skirted on three sides by the Peak District National Park and is renowned for its moorlands of the Dark Peak. Accessed via the infamous Snake Pass, this most attractive area houses fine 17th and 18th Century cottages clustered around the original market square, itself boasting an imposing Norman church with a reputed haunted vicarage! A pretty brook runs peacefully through the centre of the village, providing the perfect setting for a leisurely stroll, whilst the more adventurous can enjoy following the interesting history trail which encircles the village. Follow Doctor’s Gate Roman road to Kinder Scout and Edale, the start of the Pennine Way, or the Snake Pass to Ladybower and Derwent Reservoirs, where the famous Dambusters Squadron practiced. The nearby bustling town of Glossop provides plentiful shops, pubs and restaurants together with a superb 18 hole golf course and is surrounded by some of the most magnificent Peak District scenery. With the pretty spa town of Buxton and the picturesque Hope Valley, home to Castleton Castle and Caves, both within easy reach, this is a wonderful location offering plenty to see and do.
