Outside lovely open seating area to the front of the cottage with table and chairs and BBQ and wonderful views across the fields.
The cottage comprises open plan sitting room/kitchen/diner, featuring an original fireplace with gas-fired Little Wenlock stove, stone flagged floor and mellow oak beams, the homely living room includes two comfy sofas, painted shutters, a digital flat screen TV with Freeview, Blu-ray DVD player and CD player and radio and IPOD docking station.

The hand-made painted kitchen has a granite worktop and stone flagged floor. There is an electric cooker with induction hob, a large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave, toaster and kettle, as well as all necessary crockery, cutlery, glassware and cooking utensils.
Upstairs there is a double bedroom with old pine furniture and wonderful views over the fields and a cosy twin bedroom which has lovely oak furniture and shutters to the window. Both bedrooms have crisp white bed linen and wall-mounted flat screen TVs. The bathroom is finished to a high specification, with contemporary fittings including free-standing wash bowl on a granite top, open spout taps, Mira shower over bath and slate floor tiles with underfloor heating. The bathroom overlooks the back of the cottage and has lovely views across the fields.
To the front of the holiday cottage there is a sunny patio with table and chairs and a BBQ for eating out during the summer (please note that the seating area is not enclosed, therefore, young children and dogs will need to be supervised). There is also a lovely bench directly outside the front of the cottage, ideal for you to sit and have your morning cup of tea!
All bedding and towels are provided and a welcome pack for adults, children and dogs is provided on arrival.
Tub Cottage is tucked quietly just off the main village street and only a short walk away from the local pub and shop. Parking is not available directly outside Tub Cottage as vehicular access is required to our neighbour's property at all times. However, guests are able to pull up outside the cottage to unload and load. There is plenty of parking in the village all within a short walk from Tub Cottage.
Ideally situated in the heart of the Peak District and within easy reach of the market towns of Buxton, Bakewell and Matlock. There is so much to do in the local area whether you want energetic activities or total relaxation. There are superb local walks that start from the front door of the cottage and pass through Tideswell Dale, Litton Mill, Cressbrook Dale, Millers Dale and the Monsal Trail.
We live locally, so can provide advice on a variety of activities including road and mountain biking, walking, and suggestions for family and dog friendly places to visit. Secure storage for bikes is available at the cottage and two mountain bikes are provided free of charge for the use of our guests. We also have six friendly chickens and guests are welcome to come and meet them during their stay.
A warm welcome awaits you at Tub Cottage.
