Manifold Cottage is an above average sized two person cottage, graded in the top half of four star, and given an almost unheard of 100% for standards of housekeeping in the grading process. It has a modern tasteful ambience but plenty of charchter features, in particular a large heavily beamed bedroom open to the rafters. The bedroom has a king-sized bed with extra thick mattress (and second television)
The living room has a log effect stove with leather settees and a leather armchair plus a TV and DVD player. The TV receives full sky programmes, so including sky sports and films channels.
There is fully controllable central heating throughout.
The cottage has a full sized bathroom with shower over the bath. The kitchen has imposing real granite sinks, gloss worktops, There are top of the range laminated floors of the highest quality throughout (where not carpeted). In the courtyard there is a barbecue and laundry room and provision for off-road parking of cars. There is some limited outdoor seating area with flower borders
In the cottage there are ten (!) highly praised personalised information folders, ensuring guests are able to take maximum advantage of their stay in Hartington and its environs. Hartington itself is one of the honey-pot villages in the Peak District, being regarded as an excellent base for walking and cycling. This is helped by its location only a couple of hundred yards form the River Dove. which can easily be reached from the village over an attractive meadow and from there , there is an excellent riverside path down to Dovedale. As a result the village is able to support, despite only having 130 houses, several tea shops, two (excellent) coaching inns, a delicatessen, a grocers, two gift shops, a post office an art studio an antiques shop and famous cheep shop to which many make a point of travelling from miles around. There is also a duck pond which acts as a magnet to many visitors. The village is approached down a gorgeous but easily driven 2 mile long dale road from one of the Peak District's main artery roads, making it extraordinarily easy to get around to visit the numerous attractions in the Peak District.
Pricing: Please note that in addition to the headline ultra low nightly rate (for low season short rates), there is also an 'initial rental' of £80 for all bookings, which does not show up until starting to proceed through the booking process (the computer pricing system does not let us show it earlier) The reason for this initial rental charge is to accommodate different lengths of short breaks For example a four night mid week short break is not double a two night stay but the system does not allow us to put in a different nightly rate for a four night stay from a two night stay, so to overcome this we have introduced this charge and lowered the nightly rental. Rest assured the eventual figure produced by adding in this 'initial rental' is no more than it was before the fixed fee was introduced and if staying mid week for three or four nights is actually lower. The weekly rental figures were lowered by the sum of £80 to produce an identical total rental as before. One problem however is that rentals for anything more than 7 night bookings are understated, so if wishing to stay longer than 7 days, please proceed through the enquiry method to obtain a quote for that longer stay..

About this location
The Peak District National Park region
The Peak District National Park was not only the first such designated National Park, but remains the most visited. However it rarely feels crowded with the excellent network of lanes, numerous attractions, innumerable footpaths and so much more (hence being able to make up 10 information folders in Manifold cottage). There is almost certainly more to do within, say, 30 minutes drive of Manifold Cottage than anywhere else in the country.
There are stately houses, various victorian spa towns, market towns, fasinating villages, and bizarrely the National Tramway Museum. About 8 heritage railways as well. Every week between May and September there is the traditional practice of well-dressing in various different village.
Hartington is one of the most highly regarded villages in the Peak, famous for its fine old stone buildings, Jaobean Hall, geese pond and cheese shop..The (easy) approach down a long dale to the village from the main road really takes some beating. The River Dove is only a few hundred yards away and a very popular walk starts in the village, over some lovely meadows to the River, along the stretch known as Berefsford Dale, which in turn leads onto Wolfscote Dale and the most famous Dale of the Peak, Dovedale.
There are numerous further footpaths and bridle ways in the immediate vicinity, offering unrivalled walking in the best part of the White Peak. The highly popular Tissington Trail, which runs for 17 miles, is used by walkers, cyclists and horse riders, and is just 1 mile from the cottages. Two further trails, the High Peak Trail and the Manifold Valley Trail (both of similar distance), are within 2 miles. These three tracks are ideal for 'soft' cycling as is the network of quiet minor roads, which can be accessed at numerous points along the trails. These former railway lines have much else to offer, not least quality views, but also interesting viaducts, steam beam engines and other remnant of the past. In winter when some of our guests are looking for easier walking, they provide a useful alternative to walking across fields and dales (although walking along the River Dove with its superb hardcore path is easy throughout the year)

"Fab base for walking and cycling - home from home"
We have stayed in Manifold 7 times since 2008. It is a lovely, cosy cottage with a super comfy bed. It is perfect for a couple who want to spend their days walking and cycling and then come back, curl… More
