Property code: 54472

A stunning cottage situated in the heart of the charming village of Hayfield and set on the banks of the River Sett. This property offers everything you need for a unforgettable stay in the Peak District.

Situated on the banks of the River Sett this is a truly unique cottage. The river plays home to an array of nature which can be seen from the comfort of your cottage. For keen walkers, the trails of Kinder Scout and the Pennine Way await. Hayfield is located at the north-eastern edge of the Peak District National Park, making it off-the-beaten track compared to some regions. The north of the Peak District is emptier, starkly beautiful, and attractive to those that shun the crowds. There are some great day trips to be had in the area, so make sure Blue John Cavern, Chatsworth House, Buxton Spring, Lyme Park and the Pennine Way are on your radar.

Wander along the garden path with the river to your side, step into the wonderful open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining area. A large corner sofa, decorated with bright cushions is positioned in front of the TV and feature electric flame effect fire. The dining area offers a table large enough for the whole family to come together over a celebration dinner. The kitchen is a truly special space with floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking the River Sett, so grab a stool and sit at the breakfast bar and enjoy the views, rain or shine. The kitchen hosts everything you need for a home away from home stay with electric oven and induction hob. The utility area offers microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer . Heading upstairs, the property offers three bedrooms, 2 doubles, both with views over the river, and a twin bedroom (with 2’6x 5’6 beds), perfect for little ones. Completing the accommodation is the spacious bathroom with freestanding bath, separate shower and WC.

Outside, the property boasts gorgeous riverside views with private front and rear gardens, with seating to relax and enjoy the river and wildlife. You also have use in the rear garden of the beautiful wooden summerhouse with bifolding doors, inside there is a toilet and hydropool. There is off-road parking for two cars and bicycle storage available.

Grotto House is a lovely cottage set in a great location. It had everything we needed plus more, well equipped kitchen and utility room, good sized sitting room for a family of four, plus comfortable and cosy bedrooms. The goodie box was also a nice touch along with the fresh flowers. So nice having the little waterfall at the back door, with the dRead moreucks always happy to see us. There was plenty of walks on the doorstep without having to take the car. Hot tub was great too after a long walk. Hide

Lovely house in a nice spot. Soon get used to tumbling river and church bells. Nice garden area when the sun shines! And hot tub really lovely! Couple of suggestions provided to enhance a stay but good value for money

We had an amazing holiday. The cottage was idyllic and the hosts were so welcoming. They even brought us flowers each week. Lots of treats for the dog as well. There was a dresser full of family board games and the peaceful garden with its waterfall and hot tub was extra special. Thank you Dave and Steph we would love to come back.
