Set in the heart of the Peak District, this 3 bedroom cottage is set in an area abundant with walks straight from the door from strolls along the River Derwent to climbs on Curbar and Froggatt edges, which you have great views of from the Cottage.

The views from the top bedroom are probably the best in Calver, especially when the hills are full of purple Rhododendron (Mid June)

Pets are very welcome, we have a great drying area, the back porch and kitchen has terracotta tiles but please bring your own pet towels!

The front door opens into the cosy living room which has 2 two seater sofas and a TV with DVD player attached. The stairs are off the living room as is the kitchen. The kitchen has all the usual ammenities you would expect to make it a home from home including, Cooker, and Hob and pine dining table & Chairs, in the pantry is the Fridge/Freezer and Microwave.

The Cottage is quaint and quirky with steep staircases which may not be suitable for the very young or elderly!

Going right up the stairs takes you to the bedroooms, the first landing is the large Family room with Double bed & Single bed and the top floor is the Double bedroom with a King size bed. Left at the stairs takes you to the bathroom which has a shower cubicle, hand basin and WC. It also leads onto a single bedroom.

The Kitchen leads into a porch area, the back door and onto a small gravel garden. The Kitchen also has a pantry and a feature oven in the fireplace.

The cottage is heated throughout with brand new (2012) gas central heating and instant hot water.

The Heart of England/Peak District

There is always plenty to do in the Peak District from visiting stately homes to Potholing!

Visit Peak District is the official tourist board for the region and has lots of very usefull information. The pub is now an offical Tourist information point and has lots of up to date leaflets and information.

One of the most famous homes is of course Chatsworth House situated only 3 miles away, it really is a must see whilst you are here and there is nothing nicer than picnicking in the park on a summers day.

There is also Haddon Hall, Described by Simon Jenkins in “1000 Best Houses” as “the most romantic house to survive from the middle ages”. Set in the heart of the beautiful Peak District National Park, parts of the house date from the 12th Century, sitting like a jewel in its Elizabethan terraced gardens, and overlooking the River Wye.

The views from the front door of are of Curbar and Baslow edges, some of the best granite rock clombing in the area. Although I find it easiest to drive to the top!


Bakewell is our nearest town (5 miles) and is a real magnet for tourists with shops and museums, it has a lovely river running right through the middle, with some very large trout in the shallow water. Market day is on Mondays. Here is a list of events in & around Bakewell.

Bakewell Carnival is on from 29th June - 7th July 2013 There will be lots do do and see all week!

The newly opened Monsal trail is only a couple of miutes away, this is an old railway line, with 5 tunnels which have been reopened recently, allowing access to areas that have not been for many years. There is cycle hire available at Hassop station only a couple of minutes drive away. Monsal trail information.

"Lovely cottage a lovely stay"

We went for a weekend away and loved it just what you need for a break, however long you are. Some great walks and lovely views. The cottage was lovely and clean. There wasn't anything negative about this stay. The owners were great they was always happy to help and very friendly. The pub next door is very friendly too. A beautiful place.
