    “The skylights in the bedrooms don't ...”
    The skylights in the bedrooms don't have blinds, which is difficult if you are used to sleeping in a dark room, and means you wake at dawn! Otherwise the cottage was good - very clean and comfortable.

The property

A superb little semi-detached barn conversion, set around a pretty courtyard in the centre of the village of Over Haddon, close to Bakewell in the Peak District National Park.

This beautifully decorated and furnished cottage will make you feel at home as soon as you arrive.

From the front door is a kitchen with a small dining area and off to the left is a beautiful king-size double bedroom with a lovely vaulted ceiling and beams.

Also from the kitchen is a modern shower room with a large walk-in shower, and the sitting room boasts a high vaulted ceiling, open stonework, as well as stairs up to a mezzanine area with two single beds.

Outside, there is a courtyard and only just few steps away, some of the most wonderful countryside that Derbyshire can offer.

Don your walking boots and explore the Lathkill Dale, but make sure you stop off at the ice cream parlour and the award-winning cafe in the village first!

There are many attractions within driving distance too, including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Castleton and Alton Towers to name but a few.

This is a delightful barn conversion in a pretty village, set within a wonderful area of the Peak District.

About the location

OVER HADDON

Bakewell 2 miles.

The village of Over Haddon is situated just two miles from Bakewell in the Peak District National Park. A little gem of a village, it offers a scattering of stone cottages, an excellent pub, an award-winning cafe and an ice cream parlour, along with being a magnet for walkers looking to explore the beautiful Lathkill Dale. Over Haddon is one of the many Derbyshire villages to “bless the wells” in the traditional wells dressing celebrations in June every year – this is something very different to enjoy in this wonderful area. Just two miles away is the popular town of Bakewell, which is famous for its Bakewell Pudding and retains a delightful rural atmosphere offering a good selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as frequent local farmers’ markets. Both the rugged Dark Peak and the softer limestone White Peak are within easy reach, as is Alton Towers, Britain’s premier theme park, just 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. Over Haddon is an ideal base for exploring the whole of the Peak District.
