This extremely popular spacious and romantic 2 person cottage must be one of the best in the peak District. It is superbly located, being situated on a non-working form consisting of 12 acres and six holiday cottages, the land being surrounded by a nature reserve through which a footpath leads to the River Dove.

The area is generally regarded as being in the best park of the Peak district for walking and is also a superb cycling area, not least with 3 cycle trails within3 miles and Sustrans route 54 passing within 80 yards.

The views both from the sun room and generally outside can hardly be beaten.

Really well situated generally for exploring the extensive attractions of the Peak District

Further details indoors

The roomy galleried bedroom, which is in neither restricted in size or height by the eaves, overlooks a large living room (20 foot by 20 feet and open to the eaves) in the centre of which is a log burner on a stone plinth The upholstered suite is very high quality and particularly comfortable. The bathroom is large enough for a five piece suite, (bath, seperate shower cbicle, and bidet) and the kitchen is extraordinarily well equipped, including stone effect sinks and hardwood kitchen units. Dishwasher.

In the grading process standards of housekeeping were recognised with am almost unheard of 100% in this regard and overall the property was graded with sufficient points as would ordinarily bring it comfortably within the 5 star band, but a prerequisite for five star is for the washing machine to be in the cottage (its in a shared laundry room), so four star Gold is the grading but the points awarded reflects the quality.

The cottage has full Sky programmes with 'Sky plus' and also a second tv in the bedroom. It has the benefit of wifi service.

In the cottage there are 10 highly organised personalised information folders, much praised by guests and Tourist Board inspectors alike, - almost certainly amongst the best in the business - ensuring guests are never short of ideas as to what to do in the area and most comment that one week's stay only scratches the surface. Events lists are supplied in advance of guests' arrivals.

Further details outdoors

Despite being one of six cottages at Cotterill farm, the Dairy offers guests considrable privacy, with uninterrupted views (particularly from the cottages warm sunroom) over the farm's hayfield to the buttresses towering above the River Dove. Really quite a view!To a different side of the cottage is a large garden area, laid mainly to lawn with provision for high quality seating. Bridleways and footpaths surround the owners land. there is a 17 mile cycle trail within one mile and two more within 3 miles. A similar distance away is a cycle hire centre

The Heart of England/Peak District

The varied landscape of the Peak District makes it ideal for the walker, the cyclist or for those seeking more adventurous pursuits. There are opportunities for climbing, caving, watersports, hangliding, mountain biking etc.

Numerous footpaths and bridle ways are on our doorstep and offer unrivalled walking in the best part of the White Peak.

The highly popular Tissington Trail, which runs for 17 miles, is used by walkers, cyclists and horse riders, and is less than 1 mile from us.

Two further trails, the High Peak Trail and the Manifold Valley Trail (both of similar distance), are within 3 miles. These three tracks are ideal for family cycling as is the network of quiet minor roads leading off at various places from the trails. Indeed Sustrans Route 54 passes within 50 yards of the end of our drive along bridleways linking all three trails

Buxton

We are within easy reach of many splendid historic houses. Chatsworth House is the spectacular home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire set in a magnificent deer park and boasting activities for all the family. Haddon Hallis a Jacobean mansion that has been scarcely altered since its building. Calke Abbey houses the collected paraphernalia of centuries of hoarding and is preserved in its unique 'as found' state by the National Trust.

You may also choose to visit Hardwick Hall, Lyme Hall or Kedleston - all within easy reach.

We are centrally located to visit the market towns of Ashbourne, Leek, Buxton, Ashbourne, Bakewell and Matlock - each having something special to offer. Ashbourne is a lovely market town with a good range of shops, art shops, antique shops etc. Buxton has fine Victorian and Edwardian buildings, a fine park and a range of collectors fairs in the Pavilion Gardens or entertainment in the newly restored Opera House. Bakewell is, of course, home of the Bakewell Pudding and well worth exploring.

The former spa town of Matlock has a lot to offer and the spectacular location of Matlock Bath is the setting for a mining museum, cablecar rides, showcaves etc.

Nestling in the hollows of the Peak Park are numerous villages well worth a visit and offering something special to the visitor.

Family attractions that you might consider is the theme park of Alton Towers, the country's most popular . There is the National Tramway Museum at Crich, The National Stone Museum and Arkwright Mill at Cromford - so many things to list, almost certainly more within 30 minutes drive than anywhere else in the UK that you will appreciate the range of information we provide in our cottages to help you make the most of your visit to this wonderful area!
