Description from owner


Ruby Cottage is a traditional 200 year old two stone cottage, quietly situated in the quaint village of Longnor close to the popular spa town of Buxton, in the heart of the Peak District National Park. The village is well equipped with local stores, pubs, Post Office, craft centre/café and renowned fish and chip shop. There are many stunning walks right from the doorstep and the cottage is close to many interesting Derbyshire towns and attractions such as Bakewell, Matlock, Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall. The River Dove flows to the north, the River Manifold to the south and large numbers of visitors come here to explore the upper reaches of these two famous valleys and the rugged scenery that surrounds them.

The cosy and comfortable one bedroom cottage has full central heating and free WiFi. The ground floor has a large living room/dining room with cosy wood burning stove (the first basket of logs and sticks are provided) and a flat screen TV/DVD player. The kitchen has an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice box, washer dryer and dishwasher. The first floor has one bedroom with a double bed, a landing/seating area comfortable chairs (a cot is available if required). The bathroom has a large walk in shower cubicle, WC, wash basin, heated towel rail, shaver point and full under floor heating.

All fuel for the background heating, all power, bed linen and towels included. A cot and highchair are available on request. Parking is on street, but never an issue. There is an enclosed south facing front garden with table and chairs. Sundries such as shower gel and hand wash, washing powder, washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets, cling film and foil , tea towels are all provided, so you can relax and enjoy your holiday as soon as you arrive.

Very Good

“Ruby Cottage - great little cottage and location”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2019

Stayed here for 1 week, excellent cottage with everything you need (even decent wifi). Small but perfect for us. Very well kept, lovely walk in shower, kitchen has everything you need (oven/grill, hob,microwave, washer dryer) and all necessary utensils. Please note, there is no sitting area to the rear of this cottage, the front area is small but nice to sit outside when the weather permits! Village is lovely, all old stone cottages with two pubs,restaurant, cafe, general store and a Post Office. Location great for some walks from the front door or short drives to plenty of other great walks. A nice welcome treat on arrival off Rachel and Richard, thank you. Anything you need, Rachel & Richard will happily help with. Definitely recommended this property for nice relaxing breaks, glad I went with the previous good reviews,I'm sure you won't be disappointed! Enjoy.

“Lovely village location”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2019

Nice little cottage in village location with local amenities. Perfect for visiting and walking in Peak District. We were here for the Chatsworth RHS show and this cottage was ideal for two adults and a small dog.

“A jewel in the peak district”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2018

Great cottage stunning views and a great location. Everything you need for a great holiday.the owners were very welcoming. And friendly.

“Perfect Peaks break”

Reviewed 27 Apr 2015

We have just returned from a wonderful week in the Peak District staying at Ruby Cottage which is an attractive country cottage and just as described on the website. The cottage is situated in a typical picturesque village location on a lovely quiet street. It has all you could need from a well equipped kitchen, DVDs and books to a good wi-fi connection. The cottage is clean and decorated very tastefully. We had a great week exploring the local areas especially with the great weather that we were lucky to have. The cottage is well placed so that many towns/villages are easily accessible, with many walks close by and from the front door. The owners are very hospitable and friendly and were kind enough to leave a few essentials upon our arrival. Overall, we would highly recommend Ruby Cottage.

“Perfect Peak District Cottage”

Reviewed 6 Jan 2015

We really enjoyed staying at Ruby Cottage over New Year. The property is exactly as advertised and I would echo the comments of previous reviewers in terms of facilities, cleanliness and the customer service provided by Rachel. We would definitely recommend staying here to others.

“Very comfortable and well equipped cottage”

Reviewed 29 Oct 2014

We were delighted with Ruby Cottage. It has an appealing outlook and is probably the best equipped cottage we have stayed in. The kitchen, though small, had just about everything we wanted. The lounge was comfortable. There was a range of books and maps on the region and wifi was available. The owner, Rachel, was friendly and welcoming and quick to respond to a request for an additional kitchen item. Longnor is very well placed for walking and visiting National Trust properties, interesting villages and towns. We were sorry to leave at the end of our week.
