Pets are welcome - just ask for details.
The Cottage was built from local limestone in the 16th Century and once served as the village bakery for Earl Sterndale. The interior is small but beautifully designed, with a simple rural elegance. The ground floor has a warm fire and a comfy Chesterfield, and the open plan kitchen area has a stone flagged floor and solid wooded cabinets. There is wifi, a flat panel smart TV with Freeview, and a Bluetooth / FM radio.
An iron spiral staircase leads upstairs to the bedroom, which has vaulted ceilings and exposed beams above the bed. The charming bathroom has a bath tub and a shower, with shiny stainless steel fittings.
A small summerhouse in the back yard houses a barbecue, a washing machine, and dry space for bikes.
The Cottage is the perfect country holiday retreat, with a traditional pub a few steps away, and excellent dining available in neighbouring villages. A short drive away, the historic spa town of Buxton provides both culture in the form of the Opera House, and practicality in the form of the Waitrose supermarket, which is open until 8pm.
There are wonderful hikes right from the doorstep to the dramatic peaks of nearby High Wheeldon and Parkhouse Hill, or on to Chrome Hill and the Roaches beyond. The quiet, local roads and the Tissington and High Peak Trails provide more gentle routes for cyclists or walkers in inclement weather.
Guests will have full access to The Cottage. The summerhouse is behind The Cottage but you have to pass through two neighbouring gardens. This is a right of way and is common for small, rural cottages. For information, the sun hits the front of the house in the afternoon.
Interazione con gli ospiti
I don't usually need to see guests but I live in the village if I'm needed. If the mobile signal is poor, I ask people to email me or message via Airbnb.
