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.
