Rowsley Cottages

Two original stone-built cottages, standing together in the rolling hills of the Peak District. Both properties retain all their original charm with a tasteful mix of contemporary furnishings. These two cottages make an ideal place for families or large groups wanting to spend time together, but retain the privacy of their own cottage. Both have a lovely outdoor space for dining alfresco and relaxing in the evening’s sunshine after an active day of outdoor activities. Take in the breathtaking views of the valley and stunning hills beyond from the extensive gardens and large decked area the cottages have to offer. This is an ideal place for seeking peace and tranquillity, whilst still being within a short distance of the historic village of Rowsley, an attractive market town in this rural location, offering a selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. Step out of the door and you can join lovely extensive walks, exploring this beautiful region. For thrill-seekers, Alton Towers is only a short drive away and with many stately homes to visit including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall there’s always plenty to see and do, making this the perfect location to enjoy anytime of the year.
