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.

The cottage is centrally located in the village in a private courtyard consisting of three cottages, and is therefore able to offer peace and quiet despite the village getting at times during the main tourist season or at weekends fairly busy. 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.

Please note that if staying for two weeks there is a discount of £35 (a bit more if no change of linen is required) on the figure that the computer calculates. Accordingly rather than booking on the basis of the computerised figure, please simply send an enquiry and the owners will send out a quote with the correct reduced figure. also the computerised system is not very good at sending out correct quotes for short breaks or other unusual bookings, so best to ask for a quote rather than trying to book directly online

The England 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 Dove cottage). There is almost certainly more to do within, say, 30 minutes drive of Dove 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 and in September and October there are the excellent Matlock Bath Illuminations and Venetian nights

Hartington

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)
