Location description from owner
The England region
The Peak District was the first National Park to be established in the UK. It offers great accessibility and a variety of countryside ranging from the wlld moorland of the Dark Peak, to the gentle pastures and hidden limestone valleys of the White Peak. It's an outdoor playground with endless opportunities for walking and mountain biking as well as climbing, hang gliding, visitng caves, and most other things you can think of.
As well as the countryside, there are beautiful towns and villages and the famous historic houses at Lyme Park, Chatsworth and Haddon Hall.
As local residents and keen outdoor enthusiasts, we can offer a wealth of local knowledge and advice.
And if you want to experience a bit of city life, Manchester is a regular 40 minute train ride from Whaley Bridge and offers everything you would expect of the big city.
The house is located a short walk from all amenities. Within ten minutes there are numerous traditional pubs (CAMRA listed),Italian and Indian restaurants, takeaways,a supermarket,post office and other independent shops. The train station serves Buxton and Manchester late into the evening.
Short walks can be taken from the house into the surrounding countryside, with beautiful views over the town, the Goyt Valley, Taxal Edge. The local cricket pitch must have the best views in Derbyshire!
The Goyt Valley,its reservoirs and surrounding hills offer fantastic walks of varying lengths, from level graded paths to full-day hikes over the high moorland, perhaps to the famous Cat and Fiddle Pub.
A short distance by car is the best of the Peak District's scenery,with Kinder Scout,Mam Tor and the Great Ridge surrounding the vale of Edale. Again there are walks of any difficulty,and Mam Tor is a great accessible place to watch the paragliders. Also local to Mam are the numerous showcaves of Castleton with its Blue John stone and the dramatic Winnats Pass, a deep limestone ravine.
This area also offers some of the best mountain biking. There are endless classic gritstone trails,some easy,some hard,and its possible to put together routes of any length (full info and recommendations provided).
Climbers can also visit the classic gritstone crags of Windgather and Castle Naze within a short drive.
Those seeking culture can visit Lyme Park,ten minutes by car,which was the filming location for the TV series Pride and Prejudice (think Darcy and lake) and has a beautifully preserved country house,together with formal gardens and a huge deer park. Buxton is an elegant spa town with some classic buildings including the Crescent,Opera House and Pavillion Gardens. It's a great place to visit all year,but has a festival in July featuring opera,music and literary events,plus a fringe festival.
Overall it's the perfect Peak District base, with something for everyone.

“Well equipped character cottage.”
Great location, cottage is central in the town with good walks directly from the doorstep. Very clean, well equipped and spacious cottage. However, two negatives: home entertainment system needs updating, as not everyone wants to go out every night and access to off-road parking limited by neighbours collection of recycling bins at the entrance, which made the loading/unloading of car a strenuous exercise. The garden is peaceful, isolated and the log burning stove are a bonus.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. In response to the negative points that you mention: We do occasionally have a clutter of bins at the end of the drive after a collection, thanks to the council providing 3 per household! The drive can accommodate large family cars when the bins are properly organised. We have now replaced the TV with a new, full HD model which provides freeview channels and a facility for catch-up TV on the main channels.
“We had a great stay!”
I stayed at Carr Cottage for one week with my two friends and my daughter. We had a great stay! The cottage is very comfortable, clean and very well equipped. It is only a ten-minute walk to the town centre and the bus stop is next door. I would recommend the cottage to anyone who wants to stay in the Peak District!
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. Best wishes Helen
“Warm & Comfortable well equipped cottage”
Lovely to arrive to a warm cottage on a freezing day. Cottage very well equipped, bedrooms good size & comfy beds. Ideal for our dog, great walks straight from cottage. Loads of information in cottage & Helen very helpful with the booking process. Only one tiny downside , is the drive, took me ages to reverse out of drive! Saying that we would still return again.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. Sadly we no longer accept pets at the cottage. The drive is , indeed quite a challenge to reverse back along, at times, but with practice it's achievable! There is parking on the road outside if you can't face it! Hope to see you again soon. Best wishes Helen
“Cozy, comfy and smashing”
My fella and our pup stayed for 3 snowy days and had a very nice stay. Very quiet, comfortable and Helen was a delight to plan our stay with. Recommended!
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. Best wishes Helen
“Fantastic - highly recommend”
I would highly recommend this gorgeous cottage and surrounding area. The cottage is really spacious and comfortable for a family of five plus our dog. The information provided was excellent with great walks, pubs and Indian! The cottage was warm, well equipt and although driveway is small, it was ample for our 4 x 4. The Garden is beautiful even on a rainy day. Perfect place to relax, thanks
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. We're really pleased that you enjoyed your time at the cottage. Best wishes Helen
