Based on a sheep farm in the Manifold Valley, Dovedale, Derbyshire. This is a birdwatching paradise, from ravens to redstarts. Bring your binoculars.
'Some of the best walking country in England' right on your doorstep. After an exhilarating hike, enjoy a delicious lunch at one of the many good local pubs.
Alton Towers 9 miles. Pony trekking, Bike trails (with bike hire), quiet leafy lanes, sailing at Carsington, and much more. Derby, Stoke and Buxton around 20 miles. Chatsworth, Haddon, Bakewell all just a short drive away.
There are 9 STEPS up to the front door.
Sorry, NO PETS, this is sheep country.
A wide oak-floored entrance hall leads to all other rooms. Three bedrooms to accommodate up to six people - one twin room, one double and one with full-sized bunk beds (very popular with children but quite adequate for adults). Snuggle into non-allergenic quality bedding and wake up to green fields and birdsong.
Relax and unwind in your large living room, with a proper fire, satellite TV and picture window to watch the world go by. Sunlight streams into the separate dining room with views to make your mouth water.
A well-equipped kitchen, with everything you would expect from a Four Star property, plus a sparkling bathroom with bath / shower, complete the picture.
Play games or lounge on the lawns that surround the cottage. There is a garage for your car or your bikes. A gate at the bottom of your drive stops unwanted guests (sheep) from wandering in.
The cottage is owner managed and cleanliness is paramount.
