This cosy hideaway is full of character in a rural hamlet location with historic connections to Highcliffe Hall. Includes an outside patio area for alfresco dining and countryside views and is within easy reach of the local pub.

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.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Great property in quite location. Ideal for walks and hikes. Comfortable with plenty of hot water and good size bath. Well fitted kitchen with all you need. Spectacular local scenery. My only slight minus -no wifi and not really suitable if you want to walk to the pub after dark, its a bit far on unlit roads.

A lovely cottage, just in the middle of walking and cycling area, close to Blakewell an Buxton. Good home, if your dogs are with you.

Reviewed by Tony, 16th June 2018

Everything was very good, the only downside was the smell of dogs on the furniture. We loved our daily visitors (chickens) from across the road

Lovely property in an ideal location, particularly for walking. Highly recommend this property and the Peak District. Very impressed.

Perfect isolated place for us to escape to! Really cosy, well equipped & a lovely feeling cottage. Fire was wonderful on the cold nights, shut the world out & relax.

Reviewed by Alexandra, 28th October 2017

We loved this cottage. It was clean, cosy and had everything we needed. The location is amazing if you want to be remote, but it's close enough to lots of good walks and pubs for food. (We highly recommend the Bull's Head Inn). A 15 minute drive to the nearest supermarket in Bakewell, which has a great market on Mondays. Good self catering facilitiRead morees, great coal stove and a wonderful bath - long enough for a large grown man to have a good soak. We loved it and highly recommend it. Hide

Reviewed by Anne, 21st October 2017

We loved the cottage but think it might be worth mentioning how steep and dark (at night) the walk is back from the Miners Arms, especially as the pub at Bretton doesn't take dogs after 6! Absolutely beautiful area and superb walking location.
