Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car not necessary
  • No pets allowed

Dale View is one of six cottages at Cotterill Farm As befits its name there are wonderful views over surrounding dry stone walls, hills and dales (valleys). The cottage itself has bags of charachter, and was given sufficient points as would ordinarily make it a five star property, but lack of a washing machine in the cottage itself - its in the shared laundry room - precludes 5 star but the points awarded reflects the quality. The cottage also received from the country's official grading organisation the Gold Award for 'excellence in all areas, but in particular with regard to quality and service' Also in the grading process, the property received an almost unheard of 100% for the owners' quality of housekeeping (cleanliness).

The living area has the most wonderful beams, downstairs are two bedrooms, one large enough to either be made up as two twins or one king sized bed, with a new high quality en-suite bathroom (with underfloor heating) and the other bedroom has use of its own en-suite. There are two means of exit, up some exterior stone steps in the first floor or through the porch downstairs. (Dont worry there is a further staircase inside). The kitchen is extraordinarily well equipped, with some guests having joked that they have struggled to find anything that they considered was actually missing in that department .

Despite being it the countryside, it never feels remote, not least due to it being less than 400 yards from Cotterill Farm to its nearest village. The local pub is the fourth premises as you enter the village.

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. Numerous other services are offered by the owners who strive to go the extra mile to ensure that guests thoroughly enjoy their stay at Cotterill farm

The cottage is located just one easy mile long drive off the main Buxton to Ashbourne artery road, making it extremely well located, being very easy to access within 30 minutes drive most of the extraordinary number of attractions within the Peak District. It is also an absolutely superb base for walking being so close to the favoured walking areas of the district.

Cycles can be hired from Cotterill farm about about a half of the rate charged by commercial operators and one electric bike (worth £1600) is also available for hire. Ready meals cooked by a local lady can be purchased at Cotterill farm..

The Heart of England/Peak District

The cottages at Cotterill Farm 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 Hall is a Jacobean mansion that has been scarcely altered since its building.

You may also choose to visit Hardwick Hall, Lyme Hall, Sudbury 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 parks of Alton Towers, the country's most popular theme park. There is the National Tramway Museum at Crich, The National Stone Museum and Arkwright Mill at Cromford - so many things to list 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!

There are in fact almost certainly more to do within 30 minutes drive of here than anywhere else in the UK

Buxton

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 - this is the area of the Peak District of rolling hills, dry stone walls, villages and dales, the Dark Peak being mainly moorland.

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 almost as long), 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.
