The Heart of England/Peak District
The Peak District is famous for its walking and stunning scenery as well as the Spa Town of Buxton and the market town of Bakewell. It is also home to some of the worlds best rock climbing and some pretty amazing biking be it on or off road! With countless local food producers and some amazing restaurants you certainly wont be going hungry! Just to the south is the relatively unknown Staffordshire Moorlands and the wooded hills around Alton, well worth an explore.
Ford is a peaceful hamlet off the beaten track set on the banks of the river Hants. The cottage is about half a mile out of the village along a dead end road, it is secluded by trees from the main house and so if you are looking for seclusion, this is the place. It is a few miles to the nearest pub in Onecote and about three miles to the nearest shop. With some lovely walking from the front door you won't need to go far, Dovedale and the spectacular Roaches are just a few mins away by car. A good choice of pubs and restaurants are all close by.

Thank you for your lovely review, we're very glad that you enjoyed your stay and found the cottage in good order. We are sorry that we didn't get to meet you, unfortunatley our holiday period is dictated by our children's school. We normally arrange for house sitters where we can, however they like to give people their privacy once checked in. We hope that you will visit Ford Wetley Cottage again in the future. Kind regards
