Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Set in the delightful village of Hartington this 200 year old limestone cottage retains many of its original features. The property has original oak beams, wooden flooring and exposed stonework throughout giving it lots a character and a warm cosy feel. The layout is upside down to make the most of the beautiful views out on to the fields beyond. You can also enjoy the view from outside where there's a children's soft play area, a patio and garden furniture. The village is just a short stroll away where there's a duck pond, village green, shops and pubs. The village is famous for its cheese and you can purchase some to take back to your cottage at The Olde Cheese Shop. Graces Cottage is next door to Hillcrest Cottage and Red Lion House which means if you book together a party of up to 14 can enjoy the delights of Hartington and the Dove Valley. Dogs are also accepted here and at Hillcrest Cottage.

The Heart of England/Peak District
The Peak District and Derbyshire is a contrast of high rolling moorland, craggy outcrops and picture post card vales and valleys with ‘chocolate box' villages. The whole area is dominated by Britain's first national park; The Peak District National Park which has been catering for visitors for many years. It's easy to get around with a good network of roads and excellent public transport. There are many places of interest including some lovely towns and villages such as Bakewell, Buxton and Ashbourne as well as historical attractions like Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall. To the north of the region is the High Peak, with miles of heather moorland and great country walks and cycling
Hartington served as an important market centre in the middle ages and retains much of its character with its large market square, stone walls, and 13th century parish church. It nestles in the centre of the White Peak limestone part of the Peak District and lies between two rivers the Dove and the Manifold. The village is famous for its creamery where it was once a source of Stilton and Buxton Blue cheese, sadly this closed down in 2008 but The Olde Cheese Shop in the village still sells a wide range of local cheeses. Hartington has a number of pubs, shops, an antique shop and two grocers. The bus can be picked up from the Market Square which serves both Buxton and Ashbourne and is regarding as one of the most scenic bus journeys in the country! Just under a mile from the village you can pick up the Tissington Trail and the High Peak Trail both of which give way to over 30 miles of off road cycling, walking or horse riding. The River Dove is only a few hundred yards away where you can amble along the water's edge and over some beautiful meadows which are full of flowers in the summer months
