  • Stone cottage in quiet rural hamlet overlooking the historic village of Eyam
  • Beautiful walks on your doorstep
  • A great location for exploring the Peak District
Property code: PK478

The property is located in the peaceful rural hamlet of Highcliffe, surrounded by rolling hills bordered by dry stone walls. The historic plague village of Eyam is just a mile away which, together with its famous past, boasts a thriving country pub, restaurant and Saxon church. If you head north from the property, you’ll find the picturesque mining village of Castleton, the beginning of the popular Pennine Way and the many attractions of the Hope Valley beyond.

Inside the property the beamed lounge features a large window and door leading out to the patio, as well as a solid fuel stove set within a traditional gritstone fireplace. With a bookshelf stacked with interesting and useful local resources and historic information, this is the perfect place to relax in front of the cosy fire and plan the day ahead. In the adjacent kitchen, which displays cream cabinets, pretty splash back tiles and all the essentials you should need for your stay, there is also a good-sized dining table. Upstairs, the bedroom has been decorated in cool, contemporary shades for a relaxing night’s sleep. An exposed beam adds character to the room, while the bright and airy en suite bathroom is the perfect place to end a busy day with a soak in the tub, there is a shower over the bath, hand basin and toilet.

If the sun is shining, there’s no better place to unwind than on the small patio area to the front of the cottage and take in the rolling views.

Dear little cottage - perfect for our needs as a couple and right in the heart of the Peaks. Well appointed. everything you need for a fab weeks exploring the area. OS local map might be worth considering (we bought one for walking). Bed rather soft for us but personal preference. Interesting parking space - be prepared!

Perfect cottage plus our 2 dogs. Thoroughly enjoyed this idillic cozy cottage. Everything you could want/need is catered for. Spacious, well equipped, couldnt ask for more. Shops in Eyam, lovely cafes, and gift shops. Walks are endless, breathtaking views. So nice to be surrounded by natural beauty, unspoilt countryside. Just bliss.

A fantastic cosy, little cottage, ideal for a couple and great for those with smaller dogs, as dog friendly. Situated up a steep-ish hill about a km from Eyam.

We really enjoyed our stay here and have already discussed re-booking. The cottage was lovely, very comfortable and cosy for the 2 of us. We found it to be well equipped. The location was fantastic, not too far from anywhere and was very peaceful, just what we were looking for. We have recommended this property to our friends and family.

A lovely, cosy cottage in a great location, the only real issue was the lack of wi-fi. We did get a good mobile signal, but if like us, you use the internet for researching places to visit, planning trips, and keeping in touch with friends and family, you'll need a good mobile data package.
