This pet friendly cottage is situated in the highest village in Britain and boasts amazing countryside views, there are also plenty of animals close by to say hello to and plenty of walks to explore.

Perfectly located for those who love nature and want to explore the surrounding countryside on foot, or on two wheels, leave your car at the cottage and enjoy the amazing walks from the doorstep. Nearby, Tittesworth Reservoir is situated in superb scenery with a visitor’s centre, and is a delight for walkers, cyclists and bird watchers. Also, within easy reach are Matlock Bath and Carsington Water, while slightly further afield is the market town of Ashbourne. Also, nearby, the Manifold Trail, while golf, horse riding, cycling and sailing are all available within a short drive. Enjoy a day out at Alton Towers or visit the impressive Chatsworth House and the historic town of Buxton.

The cottage provides a warm welcome with style and charm with exposed stone and a contemporary country feel. The well-equipped kitchen is a great space to prepare a meal, with electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer and microwave. The dining table is placed next to the window, so you can not only enjoy your meal, but you can enjoy the views as well. Heading to the lounge area you will find comfy seating and TV/DVD, the perfect place to relax and watch your favourite movie whilst keeping warm in front of the wood burner on those cooler evenings. When you are ready for bed, get a good night’s rest in the bright and airy double bedroom. One step takes you into the contemporary wet room, with relaxing waterfall shower and WC, which is a treat after a hard day hiking the surrounding hills, thus providing everything you need for a home from home stay.

Very comfortable accommodation for a couple. Very warm welcome from the owners. Ideal for walkers or anyone wanting an "away from it all" base to tour the local area. Quick and easy access by car to Buxton, Leek and the many attractions of the Peak District.
