  • Great walking and cycling trails through the Monsal Dale
Property code: PK903

A picturesque cottage nestled in a charming Peak District village, the cottage offers a great base for exploring the nearby Monsal Dale by bike or foot, or fishing in the Monsal Reservoir.

Relax and unwind in this picture-perfect stone cottage located in the heart of the Peak District National Park. A perfect retreat for you and your furry companion, this property sleeps two and welcomes one pooch. Despite being surrounded by countryside, perfect for scampering and fetching sticks, this home-from-home has all the amenities on its doorstep; meaning no one will miss out on any treats.

The bijou, stone-built property embraces modern times but nods to its past by keeping original features such as the staircase. It leads you to a charming bedroom, exuding tranquility and calm, with the modern bathroom adjacent. Downstairs, rest those tired legs on the comfy sofa in the open-plan living area, whilst Fido sprawls out in front of the wood burner and dreams of tomorrow’s walks. Cook up a delicious meal for two in the kitchen/diner and sit around the table and toast to the day’s adventures.

Have a day out in the pretty market town of Bakewell (4 miles) or for a day of culture, explore the dog-friendly gardens of Chatsworth House (5.5 miles). Or stretch Rover’s legs on the endless walks in the area, including the Monsal Trail (2 miles), with its tunnels and viaducts that meander through over 8 miles of the most spectacular limestone dales. After all that hard work, enjoy a drink and mingle with the locals at the dog-friendly pub or sample the area’s treats at the tearoom, also welcoming pooches, both less than 50 metres from your doorstep.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Cottage itself was perfect, so cosy and lovely. It wasn't very well cleaned, a lot of dog hair on the floor, and we didn't get the basket of logs as promised. But fantastic place to stay, and the Bull's Head pub has great food and very welcoming staff, which is very close by. Would definitely recommend!

We stayed here for a week. It's a cute little place with an excellent location. Both pubs in the village are good and the local shop stocks a lot of things you might need including good sausages and oatcakes. The owner of this property was nice, helpful and gave us fresh towels half way through the week. Its kitchen area is small and no outdoor spaRead morece but if you don't mind that, it's a lovely place to stay. We loved our time here and would stay there again. Shower is really good! Hide

The location is perfect. It is a pity that you can't sit outside. It is a very small house, so with a few extra things the owner can make it more comfortable.

Clean & quiet with lots of entertainment not to far away. An ideal spot if you want a place to rest with no rushing around and later start in the morning.

It's just the most lovely cottage, in a beautiful part of the world. We had a fantastic time. The stairs might be a bit tricky if you're well over 6 foot, but we're both around 5'8" so we were fine!

When we arrived, the log fire was lit, and some lamps were on, which was a nice touch. The downside was that the central heating never achieved its full heat, in spite of the owner getting a plumber to check it. Otherwise it was sufficiently well equipped, and very thoughtfully lit. The location in the village is perfect. All in all, a good choice Read morefor a couple. Hide
