Superb cottage with quality finishings and in a very peaceful and secluded location. Lots of walks from the house and a mile from the Monsal Trail. Everything is catered for, even a games room with table tennis and a utility/bike lock up in the garage. Two log burners (we only used the main one).. easily housed 5 of us and and a dog.

A really high end and well equipped cottage in a great location to explore the Peaks. We visited in December but enjoyed the cozy interiors, which were well warmed with underfloor heating and two fireplaces, one in each sitting area. The garden was great for our dog to run around, and there are walks right from the Cottage door that can be enjoyed.Read more We enjoyed the table tennis table and also made use of the boot room facilities which were very handy.
