This is a clever conversion of the old village shop, a garage and a barn into one beautifully designed spacious detached cottage, right in the centre of the pretty village of Parwich.
When first entering the cottage, the exposed brickwork gives a real sense of history, yet the contemporary furnishings bring it right up to date.
All the bedrooms are tastefully decorated with a light and airy feel, and have lovely views over this attractive village.
The main bathroom is the perfect place for a luxurious soak in its beautiful roll-top bath, and the second sitting room tucked on the first floor, with its comfy sofas and woodburning stove, makes a wonderful place to sit back and relax with your friends, or perhaps escape them for a while!
The beautifully-designed open plan kitchen is fully equipped, with an island breakfast bar, a large dining table and a spacious and comfortable seating area, so the whole space is a lovely social spot to get together.
French doors lead from here out to the sheltered courtyard with patio furniture, ideal for a barbecue, and from here you can access the games room with a full size pool table and table football.
Bikes can also be stored safely here.
Should one of your group have limited mobility, it’s good to know there’s a ground floor twin room, and a ground floor wet room which has wide access.
The downstairs bedroom room also features French doors opening out to the courtyard.
Parwich is an award-winning village, with its beautiful stone buildings and neat gardens set around an old pond and spacious village green, plus a quaint local pub.
There’s lots of attractions nearby: if it’s walking or cycling you enjoy, then there are many trails, including the High Peak Trail and Tissington Trail which follow the routes of former railway lines.
The Roystone Grange Archaeology Trail is north of the village and is perfect for keen history seekers.
Chatsworth House and Alton Towers are a short drive away and within easy reach are the beautiful Derbyshire Dales, making this property an ideal getaway all year round.
