Description from owner

Description

This is a picture postcard 700 year old cottage (yes, 700 years old!) in the centre of the highly acclaimed and easy accessible village of Hartington, superbly situated adjacent to the Rover Dove.

Not only have all those, without exception, who have posted reviews on this web site given us 5 stars, but the cottage is also graded 5 Star by the country's official grading organisation VisitEngland, something which only a very small percentage of cottages achieve. In the grading process, the Inspectors has also awarded an almost unheard of 100% for standards of housekeeping (cleaning) on each of their annual visits over the last ten years.

There are three bedrooms, sleeping two in each room and each room has the benefit of a spacious en-suite, one of them a full size bathroom. The original 700 year old (!) cruck beams can still be seen. The spacious living room is heavily beamed (although not as old as the cottage itself), and has an Inglenook fireplace with imposing dressed stone surround, stone mullioned windows and walls approaching three feet in thickness. Without doubt this is a most relaxing room. There is a television, offering of course full Sky programmes (films and sports package included) and CD player, but who needs these – whether in summer of winter, just sit in the leather settees (with also two wing back chairs) and soak in your historical surroundings. The cottage benefits from central heating, fully under the control of guests.The kitchen is top of the range, with lovely stone sinks sinks, gloss worktops, and of course with all necessary appliances, including fridge freezer, dish-washer, washing machine and micro-wave and is adjacent to the open plan beamed dining area. Guests have occasionally tried to find missing utensils but usually without success. As well as wifi available throughout the cottage, there is also a tv in each of the bedrooms.There are two double beds and one twin bedroom. Each bedroom has a good sized en-suite (two of the en-suites are shower-rooms, one has a bath - with shower over). Additional to the sky tv in the lounge, there is also a dedicated sky sports room (again with the full range of sky programmes but also BT sports here) with 55 inch screen and surround sound in the courtyard.

An excellent wifi signal can be obtained throughout the cottage supplied via super fast fibre.

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 cheese 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.

There is dedicated parking for two large or three smaller cars belonging to occupants of the cottage just yards from the front door.

Please note that the computerised rental figure produced if proceeding through the ‘book your stay’ section is sometimes (but not always) too low if a guest is wanting a short break which includes a friday or saturday night stay but not both nights (although the computer generated rental figure will give a clue). In this case anyone interested in an exact quote should instead fill in the ‘contact the owner’ form, rather proceeding with the ‘Book your stay’ section. On the other hand if you are booking for the period between 1st November and 5th April (the short break season) for a week and there are more than two persons in your group the rental is slightly overstated, so again please use the contact form.

Further details

Very strictly non smoking and pets are not allowed.

Further details outdoors

There is a modest but extremely attractive cottage garden to the front of the property (often photographed by passer-bys) and a modest patio area at the rear. There is parking off road for 2 large cars, three small cars, although parking generally in the village is easy and secure.

“a fantastic cottages in a fantastic location”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2017

I like to say that i have stay all over the peak district, lakes and dales in some lovely accomodation. but this is the first review i have ever been compelled to put on tripadvisor. A superb cottage and very relaxing ambience, with an old world charm and open log fire. we booked just a short 2 night stay, but have decided to book the cottage for a week, this july 2017. we were a party of six adults with a baby and toddler and all of our party are keen on returning to this cottage and location later this year. some really fabulous walking and cycling country, right on the door step. Conveniently situated in the picturesque village of Hartington in the heart of the peak district national park. we also took the option of a late checkout time. costing only £15 which i was asked to pay as a donation to a local charity, nominated by the very generous owners of the property. which we thought was a very kind hearted gesture.I garantee you will have no regrets booking a stay here. P.S the pub is next door but one...SWEET!

“Superb cottage”

Reviewed 1 Oct 2016

This cottage had everything we wanted. It was spacious and well furnished. The kitchen/diner was very well-equipped and was very pretty. All three bedrooms were furnished beautifully and the en-suite bathrooms were lovely. Lots of hot water and an excellent heating system. And of course it is right in the centre of gorgeous Hartington which itself is central to many beautiful places to visit including the Manifold trail.

“Character cottage in village”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2016

Beautiful location in the dales close to many attractions and the countryside. Lovely well laid out character cottage with three double bedrooms each with en-suites, ideal for adults sharing.
