Commanding a spectacular position on the south west edge of the Peak District National Park. The cottage is an ideal choice for those wanting to explore the many attractions of this beautiful part of the world.

Sitting in a spectacular position offering breathtaking views across the south west of the Peak District National Park, this charming cottage coexists with the beautiful nature that surrounds it and has been honored with an eco award for its sustainability. Perfect for a relaxing getaway with your furry companion, the cottage sleeps two and welcomes two dogs. After a long day of walks and fetching sticks, relax and enjoy a well-deserved rest in this beautiful home.

With predominantly white walls and splashes of colour, the cottage has vintage furniture, home-made pottery and eclectic knick-knacks which further add to this unique and impeccably decorated space. The bedroom, with its far-reaching views, is a calm and tranquil space with a super king-size bed which can be split into two 3ft singles if required. Rustle up a tasty meal in the bespoke kitchen and enjoy it around the table in the open-plan living space. Curl up on the sofa with a content pooch at your feet and enjoy the warmth and crackle from the wood burner. Toast a glass to the view from the outdoor seating area and watch the sun go down on the weathered landscape of the Peaks.

Sniff, scamper and chase around the beautiful Tittesworth Reservoir (3 miles) and discover Lud’s Church (9 miles), a deep chasm steeped in history.

As soon as we got to the cottage it immediately took our breath away. Everything we needed for our stay was available at the property and if we had a question to ask we knew that the owners was on hand at any time. We felt so at home being there and our two dogs was very comfortable which was the most important thing. The owners took into consideraRead moretion what dogs need to be happy as well such as water bowls and toys which they left available. 5* place for families who holiday with their dogs. Hide

Wonderful short stay with a fantastic view over The Roaches. House was just what we wanted; everything thought about, loads of equipment. Great for our two dogs, their first time in a holiday home. Loads of walking, and good places to eat fairly near.

What a lovely cottage. It had everything we could possibly have needed and was some cosy and homely. The views from the bedroom were fab (when we could see through the rain!). Probably the comfiest bed I have ever slept in. We had a wonderful stay and both thought this was the nicest cottage we have ever stayed in!
