The Heart of England/Peak District

The Peak District National Park was Britain's first National Park and has a special place in the hearts of millions of visitors - from surrounding towns and cities, the UK and all over the globe.

Its internationally important and protected landscapes and wildlife mean different things to different people. For some it's a wild and wonderful setting for outdoor activities from walking and cycling to abseiling and yachting. For others it's their favourite spot for a meal out - featuring fine local produce - with family and friends.

Peak District cottages are excellent places to stay to explore and enjoy all that the Peak District has to offer. Avonlea Cottage is located in the picturesque village of Monyash and is situated in a charming row of grit stone cottages.

Monyash is a small picturesque village, situated on the White Peak plateau, in the heart of the Peak District and is an ideal location for those wishing to explore the Peak District area by rambling, walking, cycling or driving.

Many guests come to pursue hobbies such as sightseeing, walking, cycling, photography, bird-watching, local history and fishing, within the scenic surroundings of the Peak District National Park. For others there is a wealth of Arts and Culture with Buxton Opera House and Pavilion Arts Centre, Sheffield’s Crucible, Lyceum Theatres and Millennium Gallery and many Craft Workshops, Arts Courses and Live music. There are year round Events and Festivals too.

Well known Peak District places within easy reach are Bakewell, Matlock, Castleton, Ashbourne, Ashford-in-the-water, Chatsworth House and Country Park to name just a few.

There are spectacular walks from the door of our cottage such as the famous Lathkill Dale and Monsal Dale trails. For cyclists there is the Tissington cycle trail.


Monyash, which is mentioned in the Doomsday book, is a small village of some 145 houses with approximately 280 residents, located in the middle of the Peak District in Derbyshire, England. The village lies in a shallow hollow in the limestone plateau at the head of Lathkill Dale.

Being in the centre of the Peak District it's an ideal base to explore the whole of the Peak District area.
