The Hay Store is one of six non-smoking and pet free holiday lets at Cotterill Farm . This letting is situated on the first floor of a barn, converted in 2005, with the second bedroom in the mezannine above. From the outside stone steps leading to the entrance door (and just inside) there are some wonderful views over surrounding dry stone walls, hills and dales (valleys). The cottage, well above average size, itself has bags of charachter,

The cottage was given maximum points within a 15 point band for four star, so one point short of five star and in the process 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 open plan living area has the most wonderful beams, and also an extremely comfortable and high quality upholstered three piece suite and a kitchen in a raised area to delineate it from the living/dining area.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. In this area there is also a dining table and chairs, giving ample space for four to dine. Off the living area is a small passage way, leaving to the main bedroom and to a good quality bathroom. Above the bathroom and bedroom is a second double bedroom, partially open to the living area, and therefore this wont suit all groups of four, with their being a small lack of privacy and also noise transmission from the living area. Despite being in the countryside, the cottages at Cotterill Farm never feel remote, not least due to their being less than 400 yards to its nearest village (and pub). 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

In addition to the tv in this property, there is a sky sports room (shared with two other cottages but little used) just yards from thjis property.

The cottages at this non-working farm of 12 acres are located just one easy miles 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.

Please note in particular those wishing to book a winter short break that in addition to the headline ultra low nightly rate, there is also an 'initial rental' of £80, which does not show up until starting to proceed through the booking process (the computer pricing system does not let us show it earlier) For an explanation of this initial rental, please read the notes below the prices section. Rest assured the eventual figure produced by adding in this 'initial rental' is no more than it was before the fixed fee was introduced as nightly and weekly rentals were adjusted accordingly.

The Peak District National Park region

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.

Hartington

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, hang-gliding, 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.
