  • “Peaceful Retreat”
    Anyone knows how they feel after a flight from New Zealand...24hrs flying plus transit time. I chose this cottage as it wasn't too far from Manchester airport, but far enough to escape the hustle and bustle. So much better to fly into than Heathrow. ...
    Anyone knows how they feel after a flight from New Zealand...24hrs flying plus transit time. I chose this cottage as it wasn't too far from Manchester airport, but far enough to escape the hustle and bustle. So much better to fly into than Heathrow. Used GPS which was accurate. Don't drive into five well farms carry on following driveway around and between house on left and barn on right. You cannot see the cottage until you follow this route. Was met by Caroline who showed me around the cottage. An absolutely beautiful cottage which suited my needs. I spent hours staring out of the big window with expansive views. Yes the sheep do come right up to the window. So many holiday cottages I have rented have terrible beds but this one was fabulous. I loved the decor. A welcome pack was left which even though I didn't use was much appreciated ( I'd already shopped at Waitrose in Buxton) I stayed 5 days and only ventured out on last day. If like me you hate the cold this cottage is warm. I love my own company and solitude, no noise, no lights. This place really recharged my batteries. Caroline and Mark were very helpful and friendly and are there should you have any questions. A perfect place for a solo woman. Very reasonably priced one of the cheapest, but nicest cottages I've stayed in. I always write reviews and encourage you to do the same as it's always helpful for others.

The property

This beautiful, stone, barn conversion enjoys stunning, uninterrupted countryside views, set in the grounds of a working dairy farm 1400ft above sea level, and situated in the heart of rural Derbyshire, lying above the village of Chelmorton to the west and the historic village of Taddington to the east.

This delightful cottage is an ideal romantic getaway for a couple wishing to explore the glorious Peak District.

Beautifully appointed throughout, the accommodation is all on the ground floor.

This lovingly restored conversion features flagged floors and exposed roof beams combined with natural wood furniture, creating a cosy welcoming ambience with contemporary style soft furnishings.

The cottage offers a tastefully decorated bedroom and a stylish bathroom with power shower.

Enjoy the open plan living space with a designer kitchen, dining area and comfortable sofa where you can snuggle up together and marvel the glorious views from the full length window - you may even get the resident sheep looking in to say hello!

Outside, the patio provides a great spot to sit out with a glass of what you fancy and enjoy panoramic views of the stunning rolling countryside.

This is the perfect place to spend some quiet time, however, if you wish to pull on your walking boots, there are extensive walks with the Limestone Way on the doorstep.

There is a stable and secure bike storage, so you are very well catered for whatever you ride.

The owner runs dry-stone walling courses, so you could give it a try and to stay during lambing season is a sheer joy.

Take a short drive to discover the spa town of Buxton, market town of Bakewell and the historic Chatsworth House, as well as many other attractions the Peak District National Park has to offer.

This lovely cottage is the ideal base to relax at any time of the year.
