Cottage is a traditional Derbyshire stone cottage, situated on a
quiet country lane, surrounded by open fields and farmlands and has
spectacular views from every window. The cottage is approx 400 years
old and was extensively updated in the 70's. We have added
our own marks and had the plumbing and electrics replaced
recently. Decorated in a relaxed,
modern rustic style, the detached cottage provides ample, comfortable,
accommodation for up to 6 adults.
living room overlooks the lane at the front of the cottage and
the valley at the back.
main feature is a stone fireplace quarried locally and worked by
a local mason. The
wood burning stove gives a wonderful rustic focal point and a warm glow to the
room. When the conditions are right we light the wood burner while you are having your evening
meal which then takes place of the central heating.
have a flat screen with Freeview and radio and a DVD player. We do
have a small collection of DVD's which you are welcome to use
but don't rely on it for any late release!
The separate dining room has stunning
views across the valley. The table seats up to 8 people
and we have a high chair available.
your meals will be served in the dining room - we aim for a 7.30

possible on Fridays when people are almost always running late!
Breakfast is at an agreed time so if you want a late breakfast -
or an early one - that's your call.
