Description from owner



*Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence 2018!*

The Cotton Loft in Litton is a small, private, comfortably modern holiday studio, appealing to couples and single guests, looking for peace and quiet in a central village location. With fabulous walks from the doorstep, it is an ideal base to explore the natural environment, and get outdoors and active in the beautiful Peak District National Park.

The studio is situated above and to the rear of the new detached limestone garage, next to the owners' house, and offers the freedom of modest self-catering (microwave, toaster, kettle) accommodation, whilst allowing for the option to dine out locally – ideal for short breaks, the minimum stay is 2 nights.

Downstairs is the kitchenette accessed by a 13cm step, complete with the simple basics of a kettle, toaster, microwave and small fridge (no oven or hob) however the kitchenette is just perfect for a continental breakfast, pre-prepped meal or light bite! Adjacent to this is the shower room, with a really lovely spacious shower, and complimentary guest toiletries, and the living/sleeping area is upstairs via 11 steps.

Sleeping arrangements are on the space-saving sofa, which converts easily into the comfy double sofa-bed (140cms wide x 204cms long) with memory-foam topper, sleeping two - it's designed to be used as the sofa during the day/evening, and switches easily to the bed at night and vice versa. There is a TV/DVD combi and free wi-fi for your use. Cosy heating is via electric radiators, and hot water is via electric water heaters. All bedding, towels, crockery and cutlery are supplied, and there is tea/coffee, milk and shortbread biscuits to get you started.

A great range of local walks and guide books, a dining guide and board games are available for your use. There is also off-the-road car parking space for one car, a small outdoor seating area, and secure storage for bikes, climbing/walking equipment, golf clubs etc if required.

Just a few strides up the road is the Red Lion Inn, which serves a good range of real ales and tasty food. Litton village shop is a community run enterprise, and stocks all your essentials. Tideswell, home to the magnificent' Cathedral of the Peak', has a lovely range of shops, cafes/deli's, pubs and local amenities (doctors, chemist, ATM etc) and is just 1 mile away.

The market town of Bakewell, the Spa town of Buxton with it's renowned Opera House, stately Chatsworth House, the atmospheric Haddon Hall, Castleton with its Blue John mines and the plague village of Eyam are all within easy reach. The Monsal Trail, which mostly follows the path of the river Wye, offers spectacular scenery for the cyclist and walker - bike hire is available a short 10 min drive away. Chesterfield is just 16 miles away, with its links to the M1, and Sheffield (18 miles) and also Manchester (32 miles), makes the Peak District accessible to all.

Whether you are a dedicated hiker or fair-weather stroller, a serious cyclist or relaxed biker, a museum enthusiast or are passionate about nature and wildlife, the Cotton Loft, Litton is in the perfect location for you to get the most from your short break in the stunning Peak District National Park.

“Comfortable relaxed stay in a stunning location”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2016

We had a fantastic stay and found the Cotton Loft well equipped, clean and warm. We were made to feel really welcome. The village location is great with just a quick walk to the shop and pub. Thank you to Julie and Steve and hope to come back soon. Rich and Mike

Owner's reply: Thank's to you both for your lovely review. It was great to meet you, and we're happy that you enjoyed your stay, the location, felt welcomed and we hope to meet you both again soon. Many thanks.

“Clean, spacious, friendly, great location”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2016

Julie and Steve Nash were extremely friendly, helpful and gracious. I was a bit lost on the country roads and they helped me out by letting me use their GPS NavStat.(talk about generous!) It was a real time saver for me. The town's location was perfect for me as I was there to do the Peak Walks and there are some of the best in, around and quite near their wonderful rental. I had a great time even with the temperamental English weather! I highly recommend the Cotton Lofts.

Owner's reply: Thank-you so much for your kind review and it was a pleasure to meet you. You were most welcome to borrow the SatNav (we try and help if we can), and we're glad to hear that you enjoyed the area and the accommodation during your stay (even with our inclement weather). Thanks again for choosing The Cotton Loft for your visit to the UK.

“A perfect and well-equipped little place to stay.”
