The property

A stunning, five bedroom detached grand house in the pretty village of Wetton in the Manifold Valley, within the Peak District National Park.

Tastefully furnished throughout with plenty of living space and gardens, this cottage is perfect for a large family or group holiday.

On the first floor, all five bedrooms are beautifully appointed and spacious and feature many original features, such as tall sash windows and ornate fireplaces.

The bathroom is a lovely place for a soak in the bath or an invigorating shower at the end of a day’s walking.

The large farmhouse kitchen with centre island, Belfast sink and AGA cooker has a lovely dining table large enough for the whole group to enjoy a hearty breakfast together.

There’s an impressive formal dining room too, ideal for enjoying a Sunday lunch or special celebration dinner.

The sitting rooms offer similar versatility, with a cosy snug offering a woodburning stove, perfect for curling up with a good book or movie, a large sitting room, also with a woodburning stove making a great place to relax into the evening, and there’s even a third sitting area in the delightful conservatory, which again features a woodburning stove allowing this lovely space to be enjoyed winter or summer.

There’s also a cloakroom and a utility room for storing your walking boots.

The garden doesn’t disappoint either, as there’s loads of lawn space for wearing out little legs and an extensive patio area for a spot of alfresco dining.

One could easily be tempted not to leave this beautiful place for the whole stay.

That would be a real shame though because there’s a fantastic array of things to see and do all within easy reach.

Culture vultures can take in Chatsworth House, foodies and shopaholics can explore the nearby cobble streets of Ashbourne, and adrenaline thrill seekers should visit Alton Towers.

Wetton sits in the stunningly beautiful Peak District National Park so there’s plenty of adventure and exploration to be had straight from your door.

Now if all that isn’t enough, you’re within a five minute walk of the village pub making this wonderful holiday home an excellent base for exploring all that the Peak District has to offer.

About the location

WETTON

Ashbourne 8 miles.

The tranquil, stone-built village of Wetton is ideally situated in an elevated position at the most westerly extent of the Chatsworth estate, above the valleys of Manifold and Dove, in the beautiful White Peak countryside of the Peak District National Park. Located off the beaten track, the village boasts a fine old inn and a 14th century church, with an external staircase to its belfry. The spectacular Thors cave, rising 360ft above the river Manifold with its 60ft entrance, has over the years yielded ancient bones and artefacts dating back to 600 BC, whilst the river itself provides excellent walks and cycling opportunities through wonderful rural scenery. The nearby, charming village of Alstonefield, situated on a limestone plateau 900 feet above sea level, has won the Best Kept Village Award ten times and is home to Hope House Costume Museum and Restoration Workshop as well as the excellent The George pub, enjoyed by visitors from near and far. Follow the Manifold Trail along the route of the old Leek to Manifold Light Railway, or visit the market town of Ashbourne with its narrow cobbled alleys littered with Georgian architecture, fine restaurants and antiques shops. A wonderful location for a relaxing break, at any time of year.
