House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Meri Cottage is right at the heart of the village of Hartington. Built in 1777 it retains much of its original charm but is also warm and very comfortable. It has three bedrooms to sleep six and there is plenty of room in the main bedroom for a cot as well.
Settle down for the evening on one of the sofas in front of the living room multi-fuel stove with the tv/dvd player for entertainment, should you need it. Alternatively spend some time catching the evening sun with a glass of wine on the secluded terrace or amongst the shrubs in the garden.
The kitchen has every convenience, including a dishwasher and a washing machine, and also boasts a small seating area to enjoy breakfast or a morning coffee. Don't forget the village shop is just next door if you have a sudden craving for croissants and home-made marmalade.
When you come back from exploring the national park the bathroom boasts a large bath with plenty of hot water in the tank if you have time or a luxurious fitted shower cabinet if you are going out for the evening.
If you want to keep in touch with work or your social network during your stay the cottage has a free broadband connection for guests with wi-fi.

The Heart of England/Peak District
The Peak District became the UK's first national park in 1951 and remains the most popular national park in Britain.
Peak District in snow
Walking in the Peak District is relatively easy by comparison with more mountainous areas like Snowdonia or the Lake District but, although there are no 3,000 foot summits, the views of English upland scenery are breathtaking. Between the gentle peaks are the limestone valleys of the Dove and the Manifold, amongst others, where, between them, Charles Cotton and Izaak Walton practically invented fly fishing. The fields are small and bounded by dry-stone walls that lead the eye into the distance. There are frequent small villages each with its own church and pub.
The Peak District is also a mecca for cyclists. The quiet country roads over hill and dale present an infinite number of challenging and rewarding routes for cycle tourists whilst the off-road cycle trails, like the Tissington Trail immediately above Hartington, are perfect for families on two wheels.
Several of the country's most historic stately homes are dotted around the Peak District. Chatsworth is glorious in gardens by Capability Brown and Joseph Paxton. Lyme Park is the jewel of the National Trust as well as being the location for Pemberley in the BBC production of Pride & Prejudice. Ancient Haddon Hall, only ten miles from Hartington, also makes many appearances on screen such as in both the BBC and the latest film version of Jane Eyre.
Hartington is a lovely village in the heart of the White Peak area of Britain's first national park. The village and the beautiful River Dove nearby are famous for their role in the history of angling. Although small, Hartington has thriving shops, tea-shops, an award-winning post office, hotels and pubs.
The local limestone is everywhere creating a warm, mellow tone and the buildings, mostly dating from the eighteenth century flowering of the village, are very much in sympathy with each other and the Peak District environment.

"A little gem in a great location!"
Meri Cottage is a charming cottage in a great location. From the front it looks small, but the inside is very spacey. The cottage had everything we needed for our family stay. The garden is very peaceful and a lovely place to sit out and eat, which we did on a number of occasions. The board games, dvd's and books were also a great addition which we enjoyed using. The cottage is certainly homely and welcoming. The location is also great, right next door to the village store, which is well stocked, there are also plenty of places to eat in Hartington such as pubs, tea rooms and you can get a takeaway from the art gallery called The Rook on certain evenings, which we did and it was nice. We ate once in the Charles Cotton and that to was fine. There are plenty of things to see and do in the area and the cottage has loads of information on this for you, we did some walking, went to Chatsworth House and visited Bakewell and a few other nice places. All in all we had a great family holiday and would definitely like to return soon.

"Can't wait to return to Meri Cottage!"
If you are looking for a cottage that combines character with comfort in a beautiful Peak District village, you've come to the right place. We find that cottages tend to be one or the other but this has the best of both worlds. It has a lovely woodburner + additional modern heating so we didn't have to worry about getting cold. The kitchen is really well equipped and easy to use. Some cottages are dark but Meri Cottage is bright, spacious and welcoming. There is a fantastic shop next door which sells all sorts of lovely things and the staff are really friendly. We didn't try any of the pubs but there seems to be lots of choice if you want to eat out. It is a perfect location for walking in the glorious countryside and we can't wait to return.
Thanks Mel. We hope to see you at the cottage again very soon.

"Lovely cottage, charming village, beautiful scenery."
Our visit was a delight, with a general store next door, a newsagent across the road and the joy of walking round the village in the cool of the evening (it was very hot weather). The garden on the second floor was just right for sitting outside enjoying the evening, and we ate out there most of the time. The cottage was well equipped for self-catering, but there were three pubs in the village who could have supplied meals. The scenery around the district was beautiful and there are National Trust properties well worth visiting within an hour's drive. Well recommended.
Thank you Melissa. We're delighted you enjoyed your stay.
