The Heart of England/Peak District

The hills & dales of the Peak District draw visitors back year after year to see the wonderful scenery in all its shades colours and moods. The limestone cliffs and peaceful rivers of the white peak & the grit-stone edges and heather covered moors of the dark peak will make a stunning back drop to your holiday. From the friendly people in old unchainging villages where wells dressing still takes place, to the medieval Hall at Haddon & grand stately house at Chatsworth with priceless treasures. You can visit an underground world of show caves at Castleton & Buxton with stalagmites & stalagtites, ride back in time on an old tram at Crich or take a cable car to the hights of Abraham at Matlock. Visit market towns & Victorian spa towns. There is rock climbing, abseiling & miles of car free cycle track. We have trails & paths that are a walkers & Hikers paradise in an abundance of flora & fauna.

Bakewell

The trout filled river Wye meanders through the dales between the spa town of Buxton & the old market town of Bakewell famous for it's puddings. At Buxton you can follow in the footsteps of Victorian visitors who would take the waters among the eligant architecture of the crescent then stroll in extensive gardens & take a tea dance in the magnificent glass domed ballroom or visit the beautiful old theatre. Bakewell still has an outdoor market every Monday & a host of interesting little shops just off the river where a multitude of ducks await feeding. The river travels 12 miles between the 2 towns through 5 of the most picturesque dales in the country & all can be walked using paths with foot bridges & stepping stones, or cycled using the Monsal Trail. Half way along the trail is a very special place, nestling beside the river is the tiny hamlet of Millers Dale, the location of our cottages. Set in hudreds of acres of nature reserves & conservation land much of the are is designated as a site of speacial scientific interest.

"Great cottage in beautiful location"

The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. We were warmly welcomed and there was a Tea & biscuits tray when we arrived, including a biscuit for the dog! Useful information was provided such as local leaflets, plus local walks guides laminated to take with you to enjoy the many hills and dales around the area. Very close to the Monsal trail also. There was a patio area and also a lawned area to enjoy the scenery. Would highly recommend.
